  • Found on castors but it is possible to get without


  • Has the capacity to be pumped with more or less air giving lenience on sizing
  • Ideal for going over tough obstacles


  • Has the capability to pop if from a poor manufacturer or defective tire
  • Needs to be maintained and checked for air pressure in between matches
