Bridgestone develops airless bicycle tyre

Bridgestone has developed an airless bicycle tyre as part of its “air free concept” technology.

The company will advance feasibility studies and seek to make this new tyre available in the market by 2019.

Bridgestone did not give details on the materials used in the concept, but said it uses plastics in the spokes.

Bridgestone’s “air free concept” uses a structure of spokes stretching along the inner sides of tyres eliminating the need to inflate tyres with air to support the weight.
