Armour Care and Performance Tips
Tannus Armour inserts can compress over time. Compression will vary depending on the rider’s weight, psi, and the riding environment.
Here are a few tips for increasing the longevity and performance of Tannus
• Deflate your tires when not in use to allow the Armour compound to rebound.
• Keeping your bike or Armour in a warmer area will help with uncompressing your Armour’s shape.
• Run your tires at a lower pressure to ensure maximum grip and performance.
• Running at a higher pressure
will increase the chances of
compressing the Armour.
