How do I choose the size of my Banger?

In the MTB'wolrd there are dozens of tire manufacturers and thousands of types of tires, compound and chasing.
In this vast and not-standard world we have tried to develop a product that would ensure the best fit from XC to PLUS.
Obviously there are exceptions, and of course the set up may not always be extremly simple. To ensure a fast set up and incredible performance we have created this board which, considering the main manufacturers, helps to choose the best Banger for your tire.

The basic rule for non-reinforced tires is this:

From 1.9” to 2.25” declared → Banger Xcountry
From 2.3” to 2.4”   declared → Banger Enduro
From 2.5” a 2.6”    declared → Banger Mid-Plus
From 2.8” a 3.0”    declared → Banger PLUS

In the case of reinforced tires with DualPly / DH chasing, it is necessary to drop 1 or even 2 sizes:

From 2.3” to 2.4”   declared → Banger XCountry
From 2.5” a 2.6”    declared → Banger Enduro/XCountry

The "truth test" we suggest to do before the set up is:

  • insert the Banger inside the tire (not mounted on the rim);

  • approach the flaps of the rubber to get them touched;

  • if the flaps touch, or the space is less than 10 / 15mm the size is correct;

  • if the flaps remain at a distance of more than 20mm (for rims from 20mm to 30mm) or 30mm (for PLUS rims with inner channel 30 / 35mm) the size is definitely wrong and we invite you to replace it with a lower size or a tire with a more generous section.

Proceeding anyway with the set up in most cases leads to damaging the cells or the outer surface of the Banger with the result of a premature degradation of the system and reduction of lifetime.
Set up a Banger with a "lower size" does not mean having lower performance, but simply a correct product for the tire you are using.
