Invented by Michelin®, Michelin Bib-Mousse® has an unparalleled number of victories and championships: 26 victories in the Dakar Rally-Raid since 1983, 22 Enduro World Championship and 7 Motocross World Championships!

Michelin's Bib-Mousse® is a foam core insert which replaces a standard rubber inner tube in off-road motorcycle tires. It is a sponge-like circle of butyl honeycomb foam whose tiny cells are charged with nitrogen. Lighter than a heavy duty tube, Michelin Bib-Mousse® offers an equivalent pressure of 13 PSI (0.9 bar) and removes the inconvenience from a puncture. The smooth molded outer skin is designed to help it slip into its specified size of off-road motorcycle tire (Michelin tires ONLY). Developed by Michelin for expert racers who must finish each and every race. When you cannot tolerate a DNF, get Bib-Mousse!

Must have

if you are racing off-road. They are a pain to install and don't last that long, but you won't dnf from a flat.

NO FLATS!!

I finally decided to run the bib mousse tubes towards the end of the 2011 GNCC Racing season when I was leading a race in Pennsylvania, 8 hours from my home in Germanton, NC. Soon after, I switched to the bib mousse tubes and no longer have to worry about flats.

Michelin Bib Mousse

pays for its self, i ride almost 4 hours every weekend on trails that are miles from civilization and knowing that my tire is going to hold up puts my mind at ease because those of you who have had to run a rim off a bike or push one for more than a mile up and down hills will know what i mean. the only draw back to the insert is how difficult to install it was, try changing a tire with a fully inflated tube....

Great!

I race motocross and this is the way to go runs about 8 to 10 psi gives tire a good squat to hook up. i hate changing tubes so i tried this and will never run tubes again! alot of pro motocross riders like chard reed run this. so its great for woods or track. the harder you ride the faster it wears out and there somewhat of a pain to get in but well worth it in my opinion. i run it in a dunlop mx51 so you DONT have to get a michelin tire will work in alot of big company tires!!

The only way to go !

In the front tire the mouse is awesome ! I've tried heavy tubes , tubliss system, this is the way to go. Both my dual sport and race bike run mouse in the front and tubliss in the rear. I can adjust the rear pressure in the air chamber for different conditions and not worry about the front ever. best system I've used.

For the 110/100-18 tire you would need the M14 Bib Mousse which would be the 140/80-18. Feel free to give us a call at 888-676-8853 and we would be happy to help you out with your order.

How much maintenance is necessary ?
My new bike is coming with a bib in the front tire. I hate maintenance and heard you have to take the tires off and relube bibs. I know myself and will not be doing this. Should I just take the thing out now or just run the rocky mts trails as usual ? Not a racer.

For the longevity of the Bib moose it is recommended that you periodically remove the Bib to clean and re-lube it. If this is not done the Bib will start to dry out creating heat and begin to deteriorate. Depending on how much you ride and the conditions (temperature) you ride in would determine how often this needs to be done. Depending on how much life you have left in your tire I would probably run it till your next tire change and then swap it out for a heavy duty tube.

By replicating 13psi of tire pressure will running these inserts have a negative effect on handling where I would normally run higher pressures?

if like more than 13psi in your tires then you may not like these. its a matter of personal preference.
