Made from a very special Micro Closed Cell Polymer Resin “Aither”, Tannus tire uses a foaming technology. And, it may look similar to that used in many lightweight sports shoes, but it is totally different from any other foaming technology both in terms of its process or the condition. It is made from the one-and-only material “Aithercompound” with a very unique foaming process.
Aither1.1 has much enhanced elasticity than Aither1.0, ensuring a better feel whilst riding and good grip performance. Furthermore, Aither1.1 is performing at a much lower rolling resistance –approximately 15% less. It now has the rolling resistance rate that closely matches premium pneumatic city bike tyres, taking this a step closer to ideal bike tyre.
This is no more an “Evolution”,but is a “Revolution”!
In 2009 the core technology of the airless tyre "Locking Pin System" was patented.
This system ensures that your tyre will stay on your rim while riding and cornering. It also guarantees there will be no slipping on the rim.
