Nexo Ever Airless Bike Tires Will Never Go Flat

The problem with tires is of course, that they will go flat – especially those high pressure ones on bicycles. The best way to make sure your tires never deflate is to never inflate them in the first place. It’s the only way that a tire really can work better. Well, Nexo Ever Tires feature an airless, puncture-proof design and promise to deliver on that.

They use a unique polymer blend and the design features holes to provide a¬†comfortable ride. Apparently they are as smooth as air-filled tires, but much more durable. The material they’re made of is said to be just as light, if not lighter than traditional tubes, and a patented technology holds them firmly into your rims. Their maker estimates they should last about 5,000 miles, so you won’t have to change them any time soon if you’re a casual biker.

If you’re wondering how they install on your rims, you can check out the video below. It looks just a little more complex than a regular tire, but you won’t be doing it with any regularity:

You can get in on the action for a $75(USD) pledge on Kickstarter, with the first tires shipping as soon as January 2017. Cyclists are going to love these tires.
