In MTB you get flats: at the moment (2023) there is no system to avoid flats. The only solution will be solid tires when there is a light, flexible and cheap material. But at the moment we have to choose what to insert inside our tyre: insert, inner tube or tubeless? If you are still in doubt, I advise you to read on this article where we compare the strengths and weaknesses of the 3 systems.

But now let's talk about the MTB Inserts, or Mousse, or sausages in common slang. We are going to analyze the best sellers. But let's start with the basic question: what are inserts? If you still have these doubts, read this article to learn more about it.

[email protected] I am a fan of everything that has 2 wheels: at a young age I practiced road and track cycling (Italian Allievi champion). At the age of 18 I passed into the cross country competing at national/international level as an Under23. Past Elite, I made the choice to take things more lightly from a training point of view, and my love for gravity disciplines was born, training me as an FCI MTB instructor and guide. Now I have made passion my profession by managing 2 MTB centers on the island of Elba (Bike Center Elba and Elba MTB), creating the FANTAmtb and telling in an ironic but professional way everything that revolves around MTB thanks to 365mountainbike and 365TV (YouTube'PULITI dentro BIKER fuori').
