Tannus: Aither (puncture-proof, solid bike tyre)
Tired of punctures? You’re not alone! The team over at Tannus have just released the world’s first accessible, puncture-proof tyres.
Read the review on The Telegraph here.
Formed from a unique polymer with 10 micrometer-wide air bubbles inside a robust mesh of protective walling, the Aither is almost as efficient as a conventional tyre and tube combo. In tests, it managed 29Mph for the effort required of it’s competitor, which reached 30Mph. The test environment assumes that the inflated tyre has the optimum pressure at all times, which of course is where the Aither becomes the tortoise to it’s air-filled hare: as soon as a regular tyre loses pressure, it’s becomes sluggish whereas the Aither will not.
Yes, they still look ‘normal’
