CushCore tubeless air valves are specially designed to work with a CushCore insert. The air passageway is T-shaped, rather than a simple through-hole, which prevents the insert from obstructing air flow through the valve. The valve body is CNC machined from 6061 T-6 anodized aluminum, with a tapered rubber collar permanently bonded at the sealing interface. The valve core can be removed to add tire sealant. A locknut with o-ring seal and valve cap and valve core tool are included.
