Maximum rim protection with performance benefits.

Gnarly inserts do more than protect your rims from sharp impacts that can burp tyres and damage rims. Gnarly rim protectors enhance your tubeless system, improving the way your bike rides and handles giving you more control and more confidence when the riding gets gnarly!

Includes Hi-Flow Tubeless Valve

If you are riding tubeless, rim protection is a must. Tubeless is all about running lower tyre pressures; Gnarly protectors give you the confidence to ride harder and faster, focusing on the trail not your bike.

The benefits of using Gnarly Rim Protectors

  • Prevents burping
  • Improves ride suspension
  • More tubeless tyre support at low pressures
  • Improves handling and control at all speeds
  • Super light weight
  • Doesn’t absorb sealant

Gnarly Rim Protectors come in three sizes based on the width of your tyre.

Gnarly Grey fits 2.0 – 2.2 inch tyres 45 – 50mm for Gravel
Gnarly Blue fits 2.3 – 2.5 inch tyres

What are they made of?
At Gnarly, we never take the easy trail. For our products to work perfectly we choose the right materials that can be engineered seamlessly into our Gnarly designs, nothing is left to chance. Gnarly Inserts are manufactured from a specially formulated and engineered closed cell EPE foam system. The better part of two years R&D and real world testing went into the design; some things just can’t be rushed.

Our high density EPE inserts are both incredibly durable and extremely light weight, they absorb impacts effortlessly and are impervious to sealant. Gnarly.

How do they work?
Just like your bikes suspension, Gnarly inserts absorb trail vibration and impacts, which gives you more control and reduces fatigue. The mechanics are completely different but the result is the same. The EPE system has progressive dampening, which means the harder the impact (the more the insert is compressed), the more they absorb.

Gnarly inserts also reduce tyre squirm. They do this by creating friction at the contact interface (the point where the tyre touches the ground) countering lateral forces. The benefit of this system is two fold, it improves grip when cornering hard and riding off camber and helps prolong the life of your tyres.
