Details

    The Michelin Bib Mousse is a foam insert that replaces and eliminates the need for a conventional tube inside of your tire. With the Bib Mousse’s solid construction taking the place of your tube, you’ll no longer have to deal with pulled stems, lost pressure, punctures, pinched tubes, or flats of any kind related to traditional pneumatic tubes. The Bib Mousse is ideal for off-road use where it can be taken up to 80 mph and has the pressure equivalent of 13 psi, making it great for all sorts of terrain. And with its long 6 month lifespan, you won’t have to worry about flats for a while.

    Specs:
  • Eliminates flats and pinched tubes
  • Replaces conventional tube
  • Works with stock rims and tires
  • Foam density creates firmness equal to 13 psi
  • Estimated service life is 6 months after installation, depending upon severity of use.
  • For off-road use only
  • Maximum speed of 80 mph and 20 mph on hard surfaces
  • Sizing equivalents:

    100/100x18 = 120/90x18 Michelin M18
    110-120/100x18 = 140/80x18 Michelin M14
    100/90x19 = 120/80x19 Michelin M12
    110/90x19 = 130/70x19 Michelin M199
    140/80x18 = Michelin M02
    80/100x21 = 90/90x21 Michelin M15
    90/100x21 = Michelin M16

Wrong size
The M16 Bib Mousse WILL NOT fit into the Michelin Desert Race Front Tire 90/90x21. A RM ATV/MC rep told me that they would fit together, and in their defense, the sheet provided by Michelin with the mousse states that the two should fit on a 1.65 rim. I failed to install it on my own and took it to a shop that regularly installs Bib Mousse, and they failed as well. "If we tried any harder, something would've broke." We ended up installing a M15. I can't speak for the performance as of yet, but I wanted to warn prospective buyers of the sizing issue.

I just went for the first ride of my life during which I didn't spend one solitary second worrying whether or not I just pinched my tube. The area around St. George, UT is covered with rocks. Rocks or every size, color, shape and composition. Rocks rocks rocks. It was fantastic to concentrate on execution and not slowing down and shifting weight because of a square edged rock. The traction is excellent too. So much more enjoyable than tubes!

GO BIBS!!!
All we ride is nasty stuff that most wouldn't even want to hike! After 2 flats way out in the back hills of WV I finally decided to spend the $ on bibs and I couldn't be happier!!! At first they seemed pretty solid like a full 12+ lbs of air but after 15 ish hours they started getting broke in and now 40 hours later I just love it and will never run tubes again (by choice). If you don't run rocks or ride fast then a good tube is just fine but if your racing or running the bike like you know what your doing then I highly recommend them. Bibs are cheap compared to what a flat may cost ya in hospital bills/missed work and that's priceless in my opinion. Not to mention trying to get a flat tire outa the woods when ya have 30+ miles of nasty single track ahead of ya!

Great foam insert, no more flats on long rides or flats on the first lap of a race. Cost is more up front but it’s a little insurance if racing or riding far from a place that a flat could be fixed.

I hear that the bigger size you install, it feels like more pressure in the tire. Is this true?
Barton M on Sep 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes - mostly. I'd suggest you go with the Michelin recommended size mousse for the Michelin tyre you plan to use. They have a table you can use, and tells you the right mousse / tyre combination. Once you've tried that, then you can play around with them a bit - cut some out for a flatter feel (less mousse filling the void), or cut the mousse and add more in for a fuller feel. The more you stuff in though, the harder it is to mount the tyre to the rim - the right technique is really important. And as the things wear out (they shrink - mostly I think because the mousse starts to lose its inherent 'volume') you can keep adding more in to fill them out again. One more thing - if you choose a mouse that's too big for the tyre / rim combo, you'll never get it to fit. Don't be thinking you can put the desert 140 mousse into a standard 140 tyre. Hope that helps a bit.
how many hours will they last?
BRANDON T on Dec 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They last about 6 months with regular use before they start deteriorating.
Does the bib come with lube?
Paul A on Dec 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, 1 tube. The rears need about a tube and a half when new, use a paintbrush to spread it around, room temp is good. Too warm or cold and it drips or clumps. The nitro mousee lube is bigger and half the price and works just as well
Hi, I ride extreme enduros and I would like to ride lower pressure than 13 psi feeling using a M14 mousse. Now I was wondering if I install a M18 mousse on my 120 tire it would be too small and not hold the bead on place?Thank you
RODRIGO L on Mar 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Dear Rodrigo I have actually placed a M18 Mousse into a 130 Michelin tyre S12 and it all worked out and yes it did feel like it had a lower pressure in it.

As for the bead holding a couple of points the 130 tyre needs to have its beads fully out and not squashed up when the tyre is new they need to be fully apart as the tyre sits on its own along with fitting a new Mousse

Note this is only with Michelin Mouses with Michelin tyres I would not try any other set up only use Michelin mousses to Michelin Tyre made for each other hope this helps you out. go onto the Michelin web page and they do list all of the appropriate mouse sizes to the relative Michelin tyre sizes have a look it is worth it

does the bib mouse work well for dual sport bikes- XR650L?
A shopper on Aug 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I ride a KTM 500 EXC 2016. Most of my riding is off-road in the Mojave Desert; hot, dry, hard packed along with sand. I brutalize my tires, and ride over sharp rocks, Cactus thorns and broken glass. I never fear getting a flat tire. That's the good news. The other side of the equation is that in order to get that protection, there are some drawbacks. The Bibs are heavier than inner tubes. That's "unsprung" weight working against your suspension. Additionally, the Bibs are not designed to exceed 75 miles per hour, and lets face it, we like to brake the law every now and again. They are expensive and don't last forever. I have mine installed, and that can cost up to $35.00 per tire or more. Add that to the cost of the product. And finally, the bike does handle a little differently, so there is a small learning curve to manage. All in all, I cannot live without the fact that I will never get a flat just like I did with a tube tire in the middle of the desert when it 106 degrees out. I love them and will probably continue to use them as long as I off-road ride.
should replacement be determined by time installed or miles ridden? i have heard that a good recommendation is to replace the bib when replacing the tire? But my bib has been installed for a year or two but ridden only 5-6 times. thoughts?
DAVID B on Feb 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I replace by feel, when it gets too soft I replace it. I re-lube a couple times a year to keep it from breaking down. Life will depend on miles and conditions so time is hard to put a metric to. They do degrade over time without riding on them as well. I think feel the best way to determine when it’s time to replace it.
Can you tell me what Mousses I should run in the new Michelin enduro Medium tires? I found Michelins list but it doesnt show the new type enduro tire.
A shopper on Feb 20, 2019
BEST ANSWER: What size are the tires you are trying to use? A Michelin mousse fits a Michelin tire fairly true to size. The biggest issue with the Michelin mousse sizing is when you use other brands of tires along with the Michelin mousses. I use an M-15 front mouse with a Bridgestone m-59 front because I like soft tires. I have friends that use the larger M-16 in the same m-59 tire. Their combo last longer due to the tire being harder. Most 110/120 rear tires other than Michelin I use an M-14. I don't have a lot of experience using Michelin tires with Michelin mousses. I hope this helps out and does not confuse you more. Good luck.
I have the GoldenTyre GT333 120/100/18 rear and the conversion here says I should purchase the M14 mousse but this is definitely not fitting and no where close to going on...even with an additional pair of hands. Not sure whats going on here, but this isn't the right size. What size should I purchase? (already installed the front no issues).
Sean R on May 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You have the right size mousse for that tire, sometimes the tires just really put up a fight.
Don't be tempted to go to the smaller mousse, the smaller Mousse will be too loose, generate too much heat and degrade much faster than it should.
I would recommend finding a mechanical means of forcing the opposite side of the bead down into the well while you're working the bead on, my Tusk tire changer has tabs that i can hook 2 levers under to do this(always wear eye protection, levers can fly) but you can use anything like a a series of g-clamps or big welding vice grips.
Hope this helps
What size bib do I need for my Kenda Washogal tire size 110-80-19?
Eric C on Apr 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: M199 most likely, the M22 will be to small. It may be a tight fit since the mousse is a 90 aspect ratio and your tire is 80 aspect ratio. It should go though.
Is war dependent more upon miles ridden or days installed ? I mean I have these installed for a year but have only had a few rides . Do they deteriorate with time or just with riding ? I have been told they typically last as long as the tire. Change the tire and change the bib at the same time
A shopper on Feb 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: You'll need to re lube it (Murphy's tire soap works well), but usually you can get multiple tires out of a mousse. When they wear it's that they heat up and get soft. Replace it when it's too soft for your preference. Since heat breaks them down, the slower you ride and the more frequent you re lube, the longer they last.
What bib would i need for a 120/90-18 tire?
ZECH S on Jan 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This is a tough question to answer. I would recommend buying the size specified on the bib if you are using Michelin tires. If you are using another brand I would go a size down on the bib. Of course the comparable tire pressure you are going for will also impact the recommended bib. Sometimes your first few purchases are trial & error. For example, I use the M18 with a 110/100-18 AT81 and I use the M14 with the 140/80-18 Shinko. I have used the M14 with the MX32 110/100-18. I have friends who get the biggest possible bib then drill it out until it fits. At least you have some ideas to start with now.
What size do I need for a perelli mt43 trials tire? 4.00 x 18
Edward H on Jul 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would try the 110-120/100x18 mousse bib. The 4.00x18 compares to the 110-100x18. Good luck
How much does this tube weight?
A shopper on Apr 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: For the 140/80-18 it weighed in at 5lbs 6oz
Which mousse will fit better a Mitas EF 07 140/80-18 or 130/90-18 ? The M14 or the M02? Because the m14 is listed as 140/80-18 as the m02. Im a bit confused there.
Rayner M on Mar 15, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The M14 is for the enduro tires...I run it in a 120 wide Dunlop AT81RC in a 2.15" wide stock EXC rim. The M02 is the desert race/rally tube for events like Dakar. I run it in a 140 wide Motoz Desert H/T on my 950 SE in the stock 2.5" wide rim. It will not fit with the 120 wide tire in a 2.15" rim without major persuasion...
