NitroMousse Motocross Mousse for the Front Tyre - NitroMousse at Dirtbikexpress
NitroMousse from Nuetech has put more than a decade of research and development into improving the less than desirable aspects of a mousse. In general, mousses are known to be a compromise in performance on some level, but Nitromousse dramatically enhances the positives while greatly reducing the negatives.
Nitromousse combines a high concentration of nitrogen into an incredibly tough micro-matrix of proprietary elastomers. This eliminates the 'dead feel' and provides a much more lively, lighter and traction enhanced feel from the very first ride, as they do not need a break-in period. Additionally, our proprietary formula and manufacturing process provides a mousse that will last up to twice as long at a much lower cost.
What is a Mousse?
A "Mousse" - (“mousse” is French for foam), simply put is just a solid foam inner tube. They were originally introduced to the off-road motorcycle market in 1984 by the French tire company Michelin. There are several companies over the years that have created different formulations of a mousse, however, the composition and nature of the foam can have a huge impact on performance and longevity, so not all mousses are equal.
Pros & Cons of a Mousse
In general, a mousse is known to do one thing very well, NOT go flat. However, they are also known to have several downsides, such as having a slow rebounding or non-progressive effect in their rideability. In the industry, this is often referred to as a “DEAD” feel. This loose or unstable feeling can affect the motorcycles handling and traction applications and unfortunately, you just have to live with it because they are not adjustable (Like pneumatic systems or inner tubes), other than that they do adjust themselves as they diminish and wear.Being a solid foam unit, mousses are generally heavier than most tubes, and the dead feeling only contributes to this effect and feel. Other negatives can be their short life span, made worse by their high cost (Nitromousse is a big improvement compared to past mousses).
