New Airless Bike Tires That Will Never Go Flat

Airless bike tires have actually existed for a while but they've all kinda sucked and maybe these ones will too or maybe they'll actually be better who knows only time will tell jk jk my Magic 8 Ball will tell 'Try Again Later', damn we just got dogged. These are Ever Tires' new airless bike tires. They weigh about a pound more than traditional tires, are rated for 5,000-miles of wear, and can never go flat because there's no inflatable inner tubes inside. They come in two varieties: a mountain bike style with holes through the entire tire to cut down on weight, and a solid road bike style. They cost around $100 a set. Personally, I like air in my tires. You know why? "Because you drive a monster truck." You're damn right I do. Now hop in and we'll hit up the nearest grocery store for an impromptu car crushing extravaganza. Bonus points for shopping carts and minivans.

Keep going for their Kickstarter video.

Thanks to Michael, who doesn't even need tires because he rides a hoverbike.

    Airless bike tyres? Like they haven't been available for at least 20 years.

    But will the holey ones soak up mud and take in stones and throw your wheels off balance.
    The Nexo tires would be better for that reason, but I think they look like, you have to sacrifice comfort and traction.

    I was going to say the same thing. You would definitely need to have fenders on your bike then to keep the dirt and water and rocks from flinging unpredictably at all parts of your body. I can't imagine the kinds of problems you would have with these.

    If you ride on mud and dirt, don't get these. The big appeal of pneumatic tires is the ability to increase or reduce pressure to adapt to terrain. Sure you have to stop and press the valve or pump up your tire. But you can't change it with a solid tire like this one (not "solid" but from the perspective of traction it's not adjustable).

    This seems to be intended for mild rides and commutes, for other purposes tubeless tires are a great deal.
