Insert Rival is specially developed filling for tubeless MTB rims. It significantly improves riding properties in rough terrains. The main benefit of Insert Rival is absolute protection against punctures and damage of the rims, which can come as an aftermath of the hits they endure during riding. This insert also delivers better support and grip for the rider on every terrain or surface. Insert Rival is made from special technical foam with closed cell structure, which prevents it from soaking up the tubeless sealant. Materials are made-to-measure and combined to be flexible, durable and able to absorb a wide range of impact forces. Next significant benefit is low weight. Overall shape, dimensions and angles are designed specifically for the insert to attach tightly onto the rim. Insert Rival allows you to ride smoother, faster with more sensitive shock absorbtion and better control when riding in a rough terrain.

The support #MTB_RIVAL provides in turns is briliant. I can ride minimal tire pressures because the rim is 100% protected against damage, as well as the tire against punctures. Mounting the insert might seem complicated, but with a bit of practice everyone can do it without any stress.
The Rival has saved my rims multiple times already, however that is not its only benefit. The insert gives provides the tire with more support, which is why I can ride with lower tire pressure and get the grip I need. What´s more the mounting is really easy, when you know what you are doing. I can honestly say you will not catch me riding and racing without it.
From my point of view, the biggest benefit of the Rival is the fact that the insert doesn´t soak up the tubeless sealent. Because of that, the inner pressure of the tire is stable for a long time and you don´t need to refill it all the time – one of advantages is that the tire weighs less. The weight of the insert is an advantage as well. The Rival weighs 120 grams less than the Cushcore and softens vibrations because of its width.
