Just a couple of years ago we had news of a new anti-puncture system that promised to end punctures in mountain bikes. A rubber cylinder inserted inside the tubeless wheel in a very simple way. At first it caused some doubts, but a large group of bikers have already tested it and their conclusion is unanimous: the anti-puncture SmartMousse system works.

This SmartMousse has been used for a long time in enduro and motocross bikes and it's an irreplaceable standard.


Advantages of the anti-puncture SmartMousse 

The tubeless system was imposed on the wheels of mountain bikes using the reasoning that less is more, but that was because there were no better alternatives for the air tubes. Everything has changed with a very simple system that compensates the minimun weight gain that it supposes.


Avoids 90 % of punctures

If the tubeless system was already an anti-flat tyre safety device, the SmartMousse is even more so. When you install it on your wheels, the anti-puncture liquid remains, so that the small punctures are still covered while protecting against big impacts, rips and tears. In general, for all brands, it is maintained that the SmartMousse installed on tubeless wheels eliminates 90% of the punctures.

Currently it is the only solution for a split tyre

With tubeless wheels, small punctures are solved with the sealing liquid alone. But what happens if a misplaced stone tears the tryre? Until now there was no solution other than changing the tyre, but now the SmartMousse allows you to ride home without the danger of breaking the tyre.

BEWARE that not all brands allow you to ride directly on the SmartMousse, it depends on its density, for example with ZERO CUC by ZEROFLATS, you can.

Offers more comfort and traction

Installing an anti-puncture SmartMousse system offers the possibility to lower the pressure of the wheels without fear of undercutting. This translates into greater riding comfort and more traction in sensitive areas.


Protect the tyres

In addition to avoiding punctures the SmartMousse system is an insurance for your tyres. The SmartMousse absorbs the impacts, preventing the tyres from bearing more stress than they already receive. This advantage is sure to be very much appreciated by all those who have carbon wheels.


As you can see, the advantages are enough to at least decide to install one of these anti-puncture SmartMousse systems on your mountain bike and give it a try. We have tried several of them and ZERO CUC by ZEROFLATS is the best value for money. A SmartMousse that has been thoroughly tested in the World Cup.
