Details

    Tube Saddle® is a new insert solution that solves the problem of pinch flats when you’re running low tire pressures between 8 and 12 psi. With a specialized shape and material construction, Tube Saddle® is used along with your regular tire and tube—sitting between the two and filling the space where a tube would normally get pinched against the tire or rim. Since the possibility of pinch flats is virtually eliminated with Tube Saddle® it’s perfect for all types of riding like motocross, enduro, and cross country racing.

    Several benefits distinguish tube saddle from competing products. When compared to a "solid foam insert", the Tube Saddle offers a much more customizable setup. Since it uses a traditional tube you can adjust the psi at will instead of being locked into a specific psi equivalent. Additionally since Tube Saddle uses a regular tire and tube, installation is similar to mounting a regular tubed tire. No lube required.

    Compared to a "tube-less" system, Tube Saddle provides several of the same benefits but at a much more affordable price. Psi can be adjusted to suit your preference, installation is simple, and you’re free to mount tube saddle with used tires even if the bead is kinked or stretched. More importantly, with Tube Saddle® you don’t need to worry about damaging an inner liner or high pressure area and ruining your investment.

    Combined with the facts that Tube Saddle® can be serviced anywhere—including on the trail—and it can last through multiple tire changes, there are plenty of reasons why Tube Saddle® belongs on your bike.

    Specs:
  • Eliminate pinch flats at lower psi (8-12 psi)
  • Sold as front and rear set
  • Enables better traction at low psi
  • Longer tire life resulting from running lower tire pressure
  • Better traction even when your tires are worn
  • Eliminate installation pinch flats incurred by tire irons
  • Eliminate duct taping the spokes of your rim or using the rim rubber band
  • Tube Saddle® seals your wheel assembly from water and debris
  • A lighter wheel assembly when running Tube Saddle® with a standard inner tube compared to using heavy duty inner tubes
  • Installs similarly to mounting just a tube and tire
  • Can be used with old/used tires and kinked or stretched beads
  • Serviceable on the trail or in your garage
  • Tire pressure can still be adjusted with Tube Saddle® installed
  • Can last through multiple tire changes

Might be the best choice in terms of performance and flat protection. They work.
Race AVet off road in Northern California, and weight 215lbs.

Switched from UHD tubes for years to 2 seasons on Nitro Mousses, and then to Tube Saddles this year. After 10 hours, a few tire changes, and a few races I really like the Tube Saddles and might not go back to Mousses soon.

Proof they work? I recently raced with them in Toulon, NV, at high speed with tons of whoops, and a few rim rocking shots to the rear wheel, and came away flat free.

In terms of Mousses vs Tube Saddles, here’s my take, Tube Saddle and Mousses each have their place, and each have their benefits. Both are 5 star products, depending on what you want.

If you never, ever want to get a flat, or you want tons of traction (and tire roll) in the rear with no chance of a flat, go mousses. But, they’re going to be heavy and when they get the best traction (softest) they take the biggest toll on your rims and may come apart from heat. They’re easier to install than people realize but messy.

If you want light feeling, more responsive wheels (turning, jumping, etc) that help your suspension, are more compliant, aren’t messy, and might never get you a flat, go Tube Saddles. But, you’ll still have to fool with air pressure and you can flat. They also will wear our more quickly than a super well maintained mousse.

For me, the protection, added comfort, light weight and lack of needed maintenance (mousse lube...) make Saddles good for me at this point.

Also, they’re really not that hard to mount (use 4 tire irons, take small bites, use bead buddies), and they protect you from pinching the tubes with your tire irons.

They are hard to install, but they do work. but they also wear out, just keep that in mind.

Watch Tube Saddle home site video
I've run both the Tube Saddle and Tubliss systems and both add great low pressure traction. The Tube Saddle however is extremely difficult to initially install and changing tubes is also very difficult and time consuming. If you have a machine like the one in the Rocky Mountain video then no problem, but I'd recommend you go to the Tube Saddle web site and watch him attempt to install without a machine--the same way you probably will. He doesn't even complete the last and most difficult part of the install stating "I'm not going to show the rest of the install..." Why?:?? Because it's extremely difficult.

Tube Saddles Make Tire Mounting Easier.
I just completed my first two knobby changes in over 30 years today. I have no idea if they help avoid pinch flats on the trail, but they sure keep the tube out of the way of the tire irons and up in the tire while you're grunting & straining to get the bead on the rim! :)

-m-1974 SUZUKI TM250--
Work the tire onto the rim as usual with the tire irons; a bead buddy really helps the process:
pull the valve portion back out and start the stem retaining nut a few threads.
Squeeze the tube and tube saddle into the tire.
Pop the tube onto the tube saddle, pull the valve core so the tube doesn't fight mounting.
Letting everything get good an warm in the sun really helps

Great product
Three races on them so far and no problems. I was getting pinch flats excessively and this took care of it. I would recommend this set up to anyone. It does make tire installation a bit difficult but there is always a price to pay for something that works.

Work great so far!
I have about 700 miles on these tube saddles with no flats. I have had some good rock bashes that have left a rubber mark on the rim from the tire rolling over and zero pinch flats. I'm sold on these as far as pinch flat / snake bites go.

Prevents pinched tubes
It was a bit of a PITA to install, but I was able to run much less air pressure in my front tire and took a couple sharp sidewall hits with no flats. Cheaper than running tubeless or bibs. Will continue to run these on my enduro bike.

Tube Saddles are great!
We started using tube saddles this last season and have not had a pinch flat issue ever since. They can be a bit of a bugger to install, but follow the instructions and they are not that tough. I recommend them highly!

Install takes longer but it's worth it.
I now have these in all 3 of my bikes and my niece and nephews mini's. I've been using them for 1 1/2 seasons (50 hours) in the first bike I put them in and they're holding up great after 2 front tires and 3 rear tires (the second rear still has 10-15 hours left but I swapped it for a mud tire for upcoming events.

The install is definitely more time consuming but I still insist on heavy tubes so a lot of that is my own doing. I do use the Baja No Pinch tool which is awesome and plenty of tire mounting grease that I got at the local automotive parts store.

One word of caution. Pay VERY close attention to the orientation of the valve stem because the first several installs it was cocked way over to the side. I now start the the install and do a few bites to the left of the valve then a few bites to the right and just work to the opposite side of the stem evenly and it works fine now.

Yea, they seem spendy but I've gone down as far as 8 psi when I was sweeping at a Hare Scramble and they still worked as advertised. They are an investment and much cheaper and easier to install and live with than Mousses and Tire Balls. Also much more failure resistant than the Tubbliss....I've had that system fail twice on me....once an hour after install and then again after about 15 hours on a second fresh tire. NO MORE of that.

Do these have holes for rim locks?
Paul C on Dec 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, they sit on top of the rim lock. They are between the tube and rim lock. It's one of the advantages that these have over the Tubeless system. I use to get pinch flats in my tire from the Tubeless rim lock.
How long does it last before u have to replace it?
Ghent T on Sep 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Everything I've read is that it gets replaced with every tire and tube change. I run a adhesive back strip under it over the spoke nipples as well as ride-on. Never a flat of pinched tube even at 8lb front tire. 701 Husky.
Can RMATV create listing to sell front rear separately?
Mark W on Feb 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, at this time we only carry these as a front and rear kit. We are unable to break this kit apart for individual sell. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.
