As soon as you arrive on the market, the Risemousse, produced in Italy, for enduro and cross, continue to amaze for their qualities and performance.
We were guests of Risemousse, distributed by Innovabox, for a truly in-depth test of their mousses, not only to experience first-hand the quality and technological innovation that had been anticipated, but to really try them in the field. To accompany us on this day we had with us Oscar Polli, multiple international champion of rally-raid, Cross and Enduro instructor, with over thirty years of experience in the field. There was also with him Lorenzo Piolini, fresh winner of the Rally of Algeria.
The test was organized in Chignolo Po, on the Cross course and on an adjacent enduro webbing, with a standard and an extreme stretch. We had at our disposal, in various displacements, the Honda both cross and enduro supplied by RedMoto, some Yamaha and Kawasaki crosses, and 3 Rally specials with MST kits.
We have tried practically all of them, in particular Oscar Polli, who, from his very long career and experience, brings back his own impressions:
"In theenduro two mousses were tested, la standard enduro with 0,7 / 0,8 front pressure and 0,6 / 0,7 rear pressure therefore suitable for an already demanding enduro. The feeling as soon as I got into the saddle, and the torsion in the corners, were excellent, especially on small displacements such as the 250cc 4t. On the other hand, they turned out to be a bit soft in displacements from 450cc upwards. The second enduro mousse, called X-edition, developed forextreme enduro and nicknamed the "mousse with balls", it certainly helps the rider to overcome all obstacles, but with a pressure at 0,4 / 0,5 rear and 0,5 / 0,6 front it is possible to use it only for very short fast stretches in order to avoid premature deterioration. "
"In cross we tested the dedicated mousses on various displacements of motorcycle with great feeling both in the straights and in the curves, the feedback in the jumps is also excellent with a good restart in the landing. The Risemouse in the Cross version is in my opinion an excellent mousse for the amateur motocross user who does not want to puncture. "
Positive final result for the feeling and confidence that you have as soon as you get on the bike and for their behavior; we of Moto Excape, accustomed to grinding more kilometers, than "extreme" obstacles we are waiting for a mouse for maxi motorcycles and / or over 450cc, for long journeys such as rally raids and for off-road events in general in which the puncture just does not we want it. In this direction, the front of the cross model has a pressure of 1,0 / 1,1 bar which is more in line with our needs.
The test was accompanied by a very quick assembly demonstration, ATS BIKE, thanks to the Star automatic machine created ad hoc. Let's remember the main features that distinguish the Risemousse mousse:
- It has no expiration date, it is not pulverized, it is not cut.
- It is produced with new compositions of technopolymers with nanotechnology that allows the mousse to guarantee maximum performance during its use, while maintaining a progressive memory of its density.
- The degree of softness of the product varies whether it is at rest or in use.
- Its maximum softness is reached after a few minutes of use, however, depending on the weather conditions, and resumes its rigidity when it is at rest.
They have an average duration of 60 hours in Enduro, 15-20 hours in Cross and a race with maximum performance in the case of the Extreme Enduro discipline.
The manufacturer recommends the use of stops tire and specific gel for their materials that is inside the package, while we at Moto Excape remember that use on roads open to the public is not permitted from Traffic Laws. To buy them visit the site innova-box.com.
