Staun II
The Staun II Dual Internal Pneumatic Beadlock from Coyote Enterprises is an internal-beadlock system that divides the tire’s air chamber into two parts. The idea is that the Staun II will stay at a high-pressure of 55 psi to secure both inner beads to the wheel. Since the Staun II has its own separate valve stem, the design is said to allow you to safely deflate the tire into single digits, without fear of losing a bead. The internal-pneumatic beadlock is also said to serve as an added level of cushion and wheel protection after a hard landing or severe tire compression. The Staun II is available for 15-, 16-, and 17-inch wheel diameters.
