In the MTB'wolrd there are dozens of tire manufacturers and thousands of types of tires, compound and casing.
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 Small
From 2.3” to 2.4” declared → Banger Medium
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 casing, it is necessary to drop 1 or even 2 sizes:
From 2.3” to 2.4” declared → Banger Small
From 2.5” a 2.6” declared → Banger Medium/Small
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.
Above you can fin a scheme with the most used brands and casing:
|Casing||EXO / TR||DoubleDown||DH CASING|
|till a 3"||PLUS||-||-|
Banger is compatible with all tyre sealant.
