Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I just added a hardtail to my MTB quiver, and I have no intention of riding it any softer than I do my full suspension bikes. When rallying hard through rock gardens, or coming off drops / jumps without good landings, you need a little extra piece of mind that you are not about to blow up your $$$ rear wheel. This liner (while admittedly is a pretty expensive pool noodle looking piece of foam) provides that piece of mind, and offers additional damping on the rear tire that air alone can't provide. Should you flat, you can also ride out on this thing and not have to walk home.

200% worth the extra cost for the item, especially if you are pushing the limits of low PSI on a hardtail. You spent a bunch of money on those wheels, you can probably swing another 100 to make sure you don't wreck them.

As Clayton mentioned, not difficult to install. A bit of a bear to get the tire bead seated fully when working around the liner, but by no means a show stopper. Probably took an extra 5-7 minutes vs set up of a normal tubeless tire.

For what it is, its pretty cool. The design is pretty clever, and attaches securely without any zip ties, straps, etc. The one thing is, because it sits on your seat, if your a long legged human who has a seat that sits 2 feet above their rear tire, these might not be that effective. If you're not a giant then this may work well for you!

the idea of having a chain ring bolt with an allen head on one side and an insane slot on the other is just dumb. These are kind of bonkers expensive, but they are the only chainring bolts I have seen that are not dumb. Pick up a set and throw your chainring bolt wrench out.

Its no secret at this point that you can't go wrong with a DHR DHF set up. Pretty much the standard against which other tires are measured, these roll reasonably well, and grip like mad. Threw these on a 27+ hardtail and I am a big fan. Also a true 2.8 here, no 2.6 masquerading as a plus tire.

As others have mentioned, the jersey fabric is a little thicker than normal, but its thicker in a good way. Probably wouldn't be my go to on a 100 degree day, but for most conditions its a very nice weight. Its a soft stretchy fabric, and because its slightly thicker it does feel like you could take a little digger and not shred it.

FIt wise, pretty dialed as well. I went with the Large for a slightly more "sporty" fit. Also for sizing reference I am 6'5 and 210 pounds, There is also extra fabric in the back which helps keep the whole thing in the right place while you are seated on your bike.

Overall would 10/10 recommend.
