Tannus Armour tire insert for Radwagon 4
« on: January 02, 2021, 05:12:19 AM »

I touched base with Tannus to see if they plan on offering a new tire insert size for the Radwagon 4.   I was pleased to hear that they are working with Rad on this right now.   I was also pleased to hear that they have a size that will work today.   It requires a different size tube but you can find that size on Amazon.   The reply to my email is below.   Here is a link to that product he is talking about.  Sounds like Rad might offer this direct in a few months

BTW I did inquire that he was indeed talking about the new 22" x 3" tires and not the previous 24" size.   He did confirm that he is talking about the new 22" tires

We are actually working with Rad Power Bikes on this size right now.  We have a 24x1.95-2.5 that fits perfectly in this size. You will need to buy a new tube 22x1.75-2.3 should work fine for your needs (we don't sell this size on our site but you can get it on Amazon). Please let me know if you have any other questions.

All the best!

Well that's pretty interesting since that can solve the issue of having the buy the tubes from Rad if you are using the Tannus liners. I have a few sets of Tannus Armor en route to check out and will let everyone know what I think.

Any updates on how this insert is going? Iím also going from a mountain bike to the RW4 and feel pretty leery about taking it on the gravel paths and easy trails that would make my family riding life more fun!

I'm very intrigued by this information.  I'll wait until they are an OEM part...

I posted this somewhere else on the forum but thought I'd share it here just in case people were reading this thread still.

The Tannus kit for the RW4 comes as a 24" kit with instructions to cut it. My local bike shop said with a little extra effort they were able to use it as is and it fit just fine, no cutting required.
