Oaxaca, Mexico

3 Day Mountain Bike Enduro Race

Tran Sierra Norte logo

Enduro racing has been a catalyst for some of the roughest terrain to test our products and used by World Champ, Tracy Moseley, Trek Factory Enduro, Katy Winton & Casey Brown; Canyon Racing, Justin Leov and other amazing Enduro riders world-wide. Flat Tire Defender® minimizes wheel vibration over rough terrain, allows lower tire pressure and protects tire pinch flat and rim damage, so it made perfect sense to sponsor the TransSierra Norte event. This 3-day backcountry ‘enduro’ race proves the fitness, riding and navigation skills of every rider and we’re excited to be part of the challenge.

You’ll find stock of Flat Tire Defender® product in BikeXtore or our on-line store!

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!”
