Nitromousse’s All-Terrain Tire Tubes Can Withstand Sticks, Stones, Bullets

You can shoot these tires. With a gun.

Ah, the ole “good luck destroying this” marketing ploy. 

If you’re committing to it, make sure the result is more 2019 Sierra Denali (GMC hacked away at the tailgate with a bunch of a battle axes) than Uncle Rico and Kip’s tupperware (c’mon Kip). 

Here’s one for the books: Nitromousse’s solid foam tire tubes, built for all manner of motorcross and off-road bikes, which aren’t just flat-proof, but bullet-proof.

Backed by a decade of research and testing, Nitromousse claims to have “combined a high concentration of nitrogen into an incredibly tough micro-matrix of proprietary elastomers.”

Sure. Translation? Once the tube is installed, you won’t feel like you’re dragging a wheel clamp around the circuit. This mousse is a bruiser and will stomach uneven ground with aplomb. And, yes, they say it can actually take a bullet. But the tubes are also light and lively, saving off-road riders from a “dead” riding feel. Find your tire size (they fit all of them) and get used to having ’em around. They last twice as long as most mousse models. 

And in case none of the above did it for you, here’s a video of a scantily clad young woman trying hopelessly to cut through a Nitromousse with a chainsaw. More info on ordering the tires here.
