RATBITE tubeless inserts are a low cost, effective way to greatly reduce the chances of punctures and wheel damage on your trusty steed. Our products act in a way that inhibits shock and impact damage to your wheels and gives tyres a greater ability to shrug off punctures on the rough stuff. RATBITE's shape means that even at the lowest tyre pressures a tyre can maintain a usable and sturdy form, this means that you don't get tyre squirm and lowers the chances of burping under hard cornering. Our inserts sit in the tyre rather than on the rim, this means they not only aid impact resistance but also give tyres a much sturdier feel, almost like running a stiffer sidewall in your tyre.
From our early designs to our latest models, our products have been constantly evolving. We believe that the revised 2020 product is nearly at the peak of design and performance. That does not mean that we are going to stop there, as we like a challenge, so along with our range of MTB inserts we already supply, we are bringing to the table a range of inserts to suit CX and gravel bikes as well as a range specifically designed for fatbikes.
RATBITE is a foam insert system that acts as a damper to greatly decrease damage occurred from high energy impacts.
Due to its unique shape and design, RATBITE inserts allow a tyre to maintain a good form under compression, even in a no air situation.
Sitting in the outer portion of the tyre means that the bead is free from hindrance, which in turn allows for tool free fitting.
All of our products are made using a high density closed cell cross-linked polyethylene foam, which has a liquid absorption factor of less than 1%.
This means RATBITE products are lightweight, have superb impact resistance and do not absorb sealant.
Weighing in at between 50 and 150 grams per wheel (size dependant), our products have very little detriment to rotational mass, meaning you wont even notice their presence until they are needed.
RATBITE offers a product range to cater for the vast majority of wheel and tyre combinations, with the ability to create custom profiles on request.
