CushCore is based on a new concept: Tire Suspension. Any suspension system has a spring and a damper, and with CushCore, pressurized air in the tyre is the spring and the CushCore tyre insert is the damper.
Also like traditional suspension, a constant damping force wouldn’t work. It has to be dynamic. Suspension should be supple on small bumps but firm on big hits.
CushCore responds differently depending on the tire loading scenario. The more the tyre flexes, the more damping it provides.
