But smashing into sh*t is way more than half the fun ;)
I think a lot of it does come down to riding style, terrain, aggression and last but certainly not least, rider weight. I lost count of how many times I pinch flatted (tubeless) while going full speed down Ned's on Seymour before I went ProCore. I even destroyed a carbon rim with a side wall impact. Since then (almost 3 years on) I now get maybe one impact related flat per year. Interestingly enough, I have actually pinch flatted the inner ProCore tube and been able to ride it out because my tire still held air. I only noticed the next day when I checked the pressure and both inner and outer chambers had the same pressure.
Inserts are a major PITA though. If someone ever comes up with a tire or even tire and tube combination that allows good compliance and traction under all conditions and still provides pinch flat / snake bite protection (that does not weigh a ton), I'll be lining up with everyone else to buy these.
