Flat Tire Defender to sponsor Madison Saracen and Danny Hart

Flat Tire Defender has announced that it is a new official sponsor to Madison Saracen and double world champion Danny Hart for the 2019 downhill mountain bike season.

Flat Tire Defender is made of ‘High Density’ foam material and provides an impact resistance ‘Bump Stop’ protection layer between the tyre sidewall and rim edge, which can minimise sidewall cuts, pinch flats and rim damage. The foam inserts for mountain bike tyres are a ‘firm favourite’ among mountain bikers including Aaron Gwin and Tracey Moseley.

Hart said: “I am really enjoying using the Flat Tire Defender, I have only started using it this off season. I first tested it at Fort William and I loved it straight away, the thing I like the most about it is that it really deadens the track. Fort William was a great place for me to test it as it is one of the roughest tracks around. It allowed me to push in sections where I was a little nervous in the past. I don’t use this system for extra rim protection, however that is always a benefit!”

The World Cup season kicks off this weekend in Maribor. Flat Tire Defender products are available to book now on or for more information speak to your local sales agent. Madison announced the distribution of Flat Tire Defender in the UK last year.
