A flat tire is a bummer, especially on a long bike trip, but you can now put those dreary days behind you thanks to Nexo, a new airless bike tires.
The Nexo Tires comes in two different shapes: one that can be mounted on existing wheels with a lifespan of 3,100 miles and a separate wheelset that will last up to 5,000 miles.
The wheels are the product of polymer, a recyclable material that’s strong enough to combat the elements of whatever terrain you’re biking on.
Another great incentive to using the airless tires is that they’re manufactured in an eco-friendly process that will prevent billions of tires from polluting landfills.
Users can mount them on their wheels or purchase entirely new wheel sets
Cyclists can ride these airless bike tires for up to 5,000 miles
