Good-bye inner tube … Hello solid!

Here is a game-changing technology that may well render the primitive status quo of tires obsolete. These are featherweight tires with no tubes, using a revolutionary compound to make repairing or replacing inner tubes a thing of the past! Imagine, no more flats no matter what you encounter out there!

  1. I put one on my back wheel of my Green Speed trike. That is the difficult wheel to change a tube on ,especially as mine is E Assit.

  2. Their website says that they are only available in the 700 size. I wonder how they wear … how many miles they last.

    Steve, if you cycle through the page with the direction arrows the other types & sizes of these tires are visible.

    What psi do the different hardnesses correspond to?

    Old tech, just revisited… It didn’t go over well then, and it won’t go over now… There were a lot of reasons why we did not embrace this technology the last time around, and it had a lot to do with it being a pain in the dairyair as you will see in the video that was mentioned on how to install these old tech revisited wheels… They are far from what you would expect them to be, and I really wish this could have been the end

    Sorry…! the end of a nuisances problem that has inflicted itself among every cyclist since the very first tubed wheels…! They also wear out very quickly as there is no, or less give in the tire which means that the tire is in contact with the road more than the inflated tire as you will find out quickly when riding these.. Sorry to burst anyone’s bubble, but these will not be the end of the tire dilemma….

    I had an early iteration of these, and the companies keep trying to produce an acceptable tire. I’d be interested (as would most of us) in a candid appraisal from an actual couple of users.
