Tyreinvader is an anti-pinch-flat insert for tubeless tires. Very simple to use and light, it saves your tires and rims from hard impacts without interfering with the way your wheels behave. Available in several widths, to fit rims and tires from cyclocross to Gravel to Plus.
Why we created it
People riding aggressively on rocky terrain would often like to reduce tire pressure for better traction and control, limited by the worry of “hitting hard”, pinching the tire casing between the rim and a rock, cutting it, and/or damaging the rim. That’s where tire inserts (anti-pinch-flat inserts, tire noodles, etc.) can be helpful. This product fits inside tubeless tires and absorbs a part of the impact, protecting the tire and rim. With Tyreinvader we want to offer an excellent yet simple solution, keeping weight and cost low
The weights for the different Tyreinvaders refer to the product uncut (for 29” wheels), so it’s even lower when adapted to 27.5” or 26” wheels.
Great durability thanks to premium material
Tyreinvader is made of high-density EVA (ethylene-vinyl acetate), a closed-cell polymer commonly employed by the sports shoe industry: this material can resist heavy impacts with very little damage and is very durable.
We recommend checking Tyreinvader once a year or after hard riding sessions and replacing it if needed.
EVA has a closed-cell structure that cannot absorb any sealant, letting it free inside the tire cavity.
Besides, the cut-outs of Tyreinvader allow the sealant to easily move around, to make sure punctures can be quickly fixed.
As inserts have surfaces that are wetted by the sealant, a fraction of it won’t be available to repair punctures. For this reason - also with Tyreinvader - we recommend slightly increasing the quantity of sealant normally employed, by 30 ml.
The cut-outs on Tyreinvader allow the sealant to move freely inside the tire cavity, something that is much more difficult when using solid “donut-shaped” inserts.
Tyreinvader has been designed to function with our Caffélatex sealant, ammonia-free.
Easy to assemble and mount
Just cut Tyreinvader following the instructions (for 27.5” and 26”; no need to cut for 29”), join its two ends with the two (provided) zip-ties, and mount it inside the tire (it will stretch a little to fit the wheel circumference), add sealant, go ride.
Our Tech Videos can help clear any doubt.
If needed, Tyreinvader can be first mounted on the wheel without a tire, to stretch and make successive mounting easier.
Real run-flat behavior
Tyreinvader has been sized to sit tightly on the rim, so that - in case of emergency - it will push the tire against the rim, allowing it to ride short distances on the flat tire. This should be considered an exceptional functioning mode, as we don’t recommend riding Tyreinvader at zero pressure on purpose.
Compatible with any tubeless valve
The shape of Tyreinvader and a specific cut-out (to be positioned over the valve) make tire inflation always easy, with any tubeless valve. No need for special tubeless valves.
Reduced influence on normal riding
Tyreinvader is flat and it will basically come into play only when needed (unlike round inserts that are compressed quite often during normal riding). We still recommend testing Tyreinvader before racing with it.
We don’t encourage the use of lighter tires nor of much lower inflating pressure: Tyreinvader simply allows to set tires up the way the rider likes them, without worrying about pinch flats.
Tyreinvader is sold in pairs (so 2 pieces per pack, including 4 zip-ties to assemble them), inside a transparent bag. This bag can be used to safely store Tyreinvader after removing it, to avoid sealant stains. It can also be used for other purposes, like shopping or carrying little items.
What about the little aliens and the arcade font?
Who doesn't remember SpaceInvaders? Even those who are too young for that can still learn about this staple in the video game history, and play it thanks to retrogaming. Besides, our product is actually invading the tire, thus “Tyreinvader”.
The cut-outs serve several purposes: to save weight, to allow easy sealant flow, and… to offer some cool branding/styling opportunities.
