THE COMPONENTS OF NOMOUSSE ARE SIMPLE AND ROBUST
HOW IT WORKS
When inflating nomOusse to 60 psi, it presses against the off-road tire inner edge in a 10mm wide surface, with a force equivalent to 3,300 lbs. This produces the sealing between both and a firm fastening of the off-road tire to the rim. And it acts as a barrier against rim impacts and as emergency rolling support.
Being tubeless, there is no chance for pinching the inner tube. This allows to ride with less pressure in the tire. Less pressure means more contact surface and less wear. A flat tire is easily repaired with a tubeless repair kit. The lock ring has been removed, being this the weakest point of other systems. In 2,200 miles, the wheel spins around 1 million times and the chances of hitting the lock ring and breaking it are higher.
0.55 lbs. weight reduction compared to a reinforced tube + lock ring, 0.31 lbs. if the tube is standard. Compared to Mousse + lock ring, weight reduction is around 1.9 lbs. in 18 ” wheels. Moreover, being this load reduction at end of the swingarm, it results in a considerable improvement of the suspension performance.
Tire surface can easily bend to better adapt to the terrain. Maximum adaptation. The “touch” improves over the use of an inner tube, even higher when compared to Mousses.
DESIGNED BY TWO ENGINEERS AND ENDURO RIDERS. GREATEST CARE HAS BEEN TAKEN TO ENSURE THE BEST QUALITY
The lower pressure (1), lightness (2) and flexibility (3) result in a very remarkable increase in traction. Also in less rebounds and more ride comfort. Pressure is adjusted to your needs.
The nomOusse system is simple and its price is lower than Mousse or other systems. Is reusable many times without degradation, and it increases the lifespan of the tire.
NO RIM LOCK
Between rim and off-road tire there are no other elements than the nomOusse and its inner tube. Nothing hinders the perfect fit. The fastening of the tire to the rim is safe and tight all over the wheel, even from 29 psi pressure -50 to 58 psi is recommended-. As a reference, trail motorbikes run at 1.7 bar without lock ring, despite having much more weight and torque. Even with zero pressure in the off-road tire, rolling is continuous, nomOusse works as emergency rolling support. Typical bounces when a standard tire is pinched do not occur and the rim is not damaged.
TESTS OF THOUSANDS KM HAVE BEEN PERFORMED SHOWING SURPRISING RESULTS
NO NEED TO DRILL THE RIM
Lock ring hole is used for the second valve. In addition, rim is kept clean and mud-free inside, thanks to the perfect sealing against the tire.
Wheel grips more and scratches less. nomOusse Reduces the amount of rubber, and it is Reusable and Recyclable -the three R’s of ecology-.
nomOusse firmly fastens the tire preventing it from displacing inside the rim, and thus preventing rim abrasion produced by dust or mud (with the typical color of aluminum powder). In addition, nomOusse protrudes 0.8 in over the rim edges all around, thanks to the absence of a lock ring, absorbing shocks against steps or sharp edges, protecting the rim and the inflation valve from being hit. Spokes nuts are kept fastened longer.
IN SEARCH OF THE PERFECT GRIP AND THE MOST ADAPTIVE SYSTEM
*This new off-road “tubeless” system, has been designed by two engineers and enduro riders*
"The main problem we have at enduro is to crush the rear tube, having to interrupt our journey of fun. After having a look at the solutions offered by the market and testing each of them, we were not satisfied. Thus, we decided to build our own system. After several tests, we realized that we had found the solution. " NomOusse fastens the tire all over the rim. NomOusse acts as a barrier against rim impacts. Also, nomOusse acts as an emergency support when the main tire pinches and allows the rider to drive to a safe location.
