The X-Guard belt with high penetration resistance enables a tubeless tire to increase its puncture resistance without compromising the comfortable ride or low rolling resistance. In addition to a normal puncture-resistant ply, these tires are layered with an extra 40x40 tpi mesh puncture guard, boosting puncture resistance by 47%.

NR-TEX(NATURAL RUBBER) INNER AIR SEAL SYSTEMTo bring the advantages of a latex tube to a tubeless tire, IRC developed a new high-elasticity tire liner based on natural rubber which offers lower energy loss, reinforced with silica. Despite being slightly poorer at retaining air than the butyl rubber used for typical liners, air retention is sufficient, especially for tubeless construction.
