Nukeproof Advanced Rim Protection!
Most tyres now have inbuilt protective casing and are better than ever! However it only takes one awkward rock or spike to cause pinch flats, rim dings, tyre burps etc. The last thing you want is a hole in your tyre when your in the middle of the night! Most tyre manufacturers add heavier casing to their tyres which adds weight that riders don’t want to carry, never mind the spare tubes, tyre plugs and patches in your backpack. This can also lose the feel and natural cushioning in the tyres hence why plus sand fat tyres are so popular! Over the past few years engineers have been looking at ways to develop protective systems to help eliminate the chances of punctures.
Current offerings can be up to 4 times as expensive and can be way more challenging to fit! The closest competitor is the flat tyre defender which I have fitted to one of my rear wheels. It is the lightest offering and sold a similar price point as the A.R.D. It is easy to cut and fit but doesn’t offer the same level of dampening.
Enter stage, Nukeproof A.R.D. The ARD has an unusual shape to act as a bump stop between the rim and tyre. This deflects the energy and minimises the opportunity for pinch flats. The “wings” of the ARD protect the rim from dents and dings whilst also allowing the tyres to be seated easily. The insert slides easily into the tyre when one side of the tyre is already fitted.
PEDAL TO PROGRESSION – CHILREN’S MTB CAMPS GRADING
We’ve updated our Children’s Mountain Bike Camps to offer an even better experience for your child!
Our MTB camps will be categorised based on ability using a scale similar to how trails are graded.
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS.
- Each coaching camp is graded based on rider skill and fitness level required!
- It allows your child to ride with children of a similar ability.
- This means more time spent riding during the their sessions!
- Your child can also progress to the next level when they are ready.
We advise underestimating your child’s abilities if they are attending their first Pedal To Progression mountain bike camp. We are more than happy to invite them to try a harder graded session if they are exceeding the criteria for the session they are booked onto.
To see which category best suits your child read our criteria below.. Read more about Pedal To Progression Children’s Camps MTB Grading …
