Tannus Armour is one of the very best solutions to protecting your bike tubes. This is a new product that is a foam insert to your tire that provides a protection layer between your tire and tube. The idea might seem simple, but with the emergence of bike wheel foam inserts over the last few years it is impressive what Tannus as done.

The very most common question we get is, does Tannus Armour work? In short, YES it work. And pretty darn well at that. Depending on your location and the terrain you generally ride in, Tannus Armour inserts can be a fantastic solution to minimizing flats as well as improving performance.

While many tire insert brands are focused on acting as another suspension component and improving the structural integrity of a tubeless tire, Tannus Armour is designed to work WITH or without a regular bike innertube. This is different than many other inserts on the market that are specifically designed to be used with a tubeless tire setup. Install is pretty simple with these Inserts as Tannus Armour inserts are far less cumbersome than their competitors on the market.
