Bridgestone unveiled next-generation bicycle tire, designed using “Air Free Concept.”
This new tire will be available in market by 2019.
The “Air Free Concept” is a technology that eliminates the need for tires to be inflated with air to support the weight, using a unique structure of spokes stretching along the inner sides of tires. In addition, the resins that are used in the spokes and rubbers help realize more efficient use of resources.
The high flexibility for design granted by resin has also enabled proposals of next-generation bicycles which have never been seen before.
