Default Go Proline LOL

Well.....the 1st big one came in a package of foams by them selves.....so i called them up and they sent me out another big one....DESPITE me telling them the one that was Out was Loose as a goose on the rim....so what did they send me....Another Loose as a goose foam.....

Lets try this again Proline.



Somewhat Baffled at how such a size difference there can be.....i asked and they said there is a Shrink/expending % that is allowable...but how the Heck do these get past quality control.

ya i think im gonna ask for 4 of the same next time that way they cant possibly screw it up ....ill ask nicely to have them double check them before shipping and maybe think twice about how they are checking for defect's and flaw's in the future.

Do the EVO foams have the ribs cut out? Can you only use proline tires with those types of foams, i mean whos to say all the different tires manufactues have the ribs in same location on the carcass. Some tires dont have ribs at all..

they appear to have the line as well....i have yet to get any of the V2 in hand....im Trying to get a 2nd set of V1's together



I think it boils down to preference if you want to run a proline tire on a AKA foam which wont have the cut out's....Obviously you swap that around and use AKA's on the proline's i don't see any thing bad about that but the other way is the concern when you have a 2-3mm patch of nothingness due to the tire having a rib and the foam not.

I believe they are working on this for a future foam package.

Future AKA foams will have ribs.

However it's not so they will fit Proline tires.

We have found a way to "soften" the insert without changing the long lasting compound and no longer have to run them 2-3 times to break them in.


Still the best insert in the industry.
