Schwalbe has entered the airless tyre segment with a new €89 puncture proof system based around an air free thermoplastic polyurethane paired with an inner Airless ring.
Consisting of an outer tyre paired with an inner portion, the new Airless system is said to be able to cope with high-speed and electric bike use, delivering a 10,000 kilometre lifecycle if used normally.
Initially available in Germany and Holland, UK rollout is to be confirmed, according to Dave Taylor of Schwalbe UK.
He told CI.N: “The UK SRP will be similar to the Euro SRP converted at current FX rate and it will absolutely be IBD only. At present we’ll produce 622 size moulds which will be available only until such time as sufficient demand comes from 559 or 349, for example.”
