Tannus FAQ

TANNUS ARMOUR


Tannus Armour is an insert that sits underneath the tire and over the tube. It offers puncture resistance, comfort, and enhanced riding capabilities.

Each insert is $40. So a set will cost $80.

The insert has a 5,000 mile warranty on them but they can be ridden much longer.

ARMOUR SIZE ARMOUR WEIGHT

26”x1.6-1.9” 260g
700x44-47c 290g

27.5”x1.95-2.5”< 310g
29”x1.95-2.5” 320g

We recommend not running the armour in a tubeless set-up. By using a tube you get improved puncture resistance and the full benefits of a smoother ride and no-hassle that you don’t get with tubeless.

You can find it here: Tannus Tubes or pick them up at your local bike shop.

Tannus Armour is made of a patented material called Aither. It’s a high quality foam-like polymer that offers vibration damping, a smoother ride, and puncture resistance.


One of the great features of the Tannus Armour is that if you get a flat during the ride you can ride a few miles without hurting your rim. However, if you do get a flat please avoid rougher terrain.

The armour will compress some after it’s installed depending on the pressure of the tire. The higher the psi the more condensed the Armour will become. If you wish to keep the Armour as thick as possible then maintain a lower psi. You may also deflate your tire if you’re not going to be riding for a longer period. This allows the Armour to rebound back to its original size.

While they were designed for mountain bikes and gravel bikes, they are great for your commuter and road bikes. They will help with the puncture resistance and overall comfort.

TANNUS TIRES


Tannus Tires are not insert. They are an actual tire.

Keep your wheelset but you won’t need your rim strip, tube or tire. If you want to order a complete wheelset with Tannus Tires already installed please click here.

Some of our tires come with "Soft" options and some have "Hard" options. If the option is available for the size you're buying, we recommend riders over 200lbs going for the "Hard" compound, riders between 120lbs & 200lbs riding the "Regular" compound, and riders below 120lbs going for the "Soft" compound. If the tire you're looking for doesn't have a hardness option, don't sweat it! The difference is most notable on the road sizes.

Unlike other solid tires, Tannus has made technological advances that make the tires lightweight, comfortable and durable. Most people don’t notice a difference when they switch except they don’t get flats or have to worry about psi.

Tannus Tires are for road. If you’re looking for an off road option check out Tannus Armour

While they can last longer they have a 5,000 mile guarantee.

Most of the tires come in three different densities: soft, regular, and hard. View Specifications

You can buy them through us but we also encourage you buying them through your local bike shop. For a list of shops in your area click here. Tannus Dealers
