Sponsor for these 2019 Events/Teams:

Flat Tire Defender® is happy to be back again as the official ‘Foam Insert’ of the US Open Mountain Biking event. We’ll be there to showcase our product, answer questions, provide service and have fun!

The US Open of Mountain Biking has been held on the east coast since its inception in 2003, and 2019 marks a new chapter in US Open history as it takes place on the west coast for the first time. Fans and racers can expect the same thrilling open class downhill racing and new for this year, the Fox US Open will also be the final stop of the EWS North American Enduro Series.

team project logoTeam PROJECT

Team Project was founded in 2011 in order to help young aspiring Swiss downhill athletes to be able to race at National and International levels. Starting with the iXS Swiss and European Cup and now the ‘elite’ ranks racing World Cup events.  With consistence results, two young rockets in the junior class, we’re determined to race a majority of the World Cups in 2018.

“We are blown away by the positive affects which Flat Tire Defender brings.  We can go fully committed into ‘rock gardens’ without hesitating about our rims, riding with less tire pressure and it doesn’t even feel spongy in berms and of course less arm-pump because it feels like a third suspension!”
