So this is the second time it’s happened to me, but basically, I’ll start riding, and out of nowhere, my tube will press out of the tire and rim, and suddenly all the air inflates the top and the tube explodes... anyone know what causes this, and how to fix it?

Wtf?

That's weird... I'm not sure why it'd do that...

I don't crash, I do random gravity checks...

Take your tire off and inspect around where it sits in the rim, You could just have seated it wrong but most likely the rubber could have ripped from the steel wire bead, causing a big bubble of the tube to shoot out whenever it gets some pressure.

Also post a picture if you can that'd help us a lot.

Yep, could be that the bead is now a bit iffy. Could also be the rim though :/

It’s hard to take a pic cuz as soon as I see it, the tire just randomly explodes lol, but sometimes the tube will just press out of the tire and I have to deflate it and push it back in

It's a shit tire . I had the same happen to Kenda Kontacts when I was learning 360s . Even just riding around it would do that . Throw the tire out and get a good one .

In my experience it tends to happen most when the bead is loose. Is the tyre really easy to put on and remove from the rim?

It goes on easily, but it doesn’t usually come out easily
