Tannus Co.,Ltd. launched the New Version Collection of their maintenance-free Next Generation Bike Tire “Tannus” to the global market. This new collection of tires will be available in the market from March, 2015. Exact dates of sales start differs by country and market, due to delivery time difference and market conditions.
Tannus is a global bike tire brand producing and providing the SOLID Structure bike tires since 2011. Tannus has spent over a decade perfecting the compound polymer before introducing these revolutionary tires to the global market. Tannus tires not only replicate the weight but also the performance of a traditional pneumatic tire.
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 “Aither compound” with a very unique foaming process.
Aither compound is extremely light weight and the tire produced with this material weighs just about the same as pneumatic tires, which volume is mostly air.
(700 x 23C Tannus tire weigh only 430g)
Aither compound has very strong independence, and is extremely durable against any chemical attack from the outside. Thus, the products never be hydrolyzed, aged, degraded, nor show any color fade-outs.
Tannus products made from Aither compound is totally different from all other solid bike tires, no-flat bike tires, and are the “Bike Tire of the Next Generation”.
For the first time, at the London Bike Show (February 12th ~ 15th , 2015), Tannus unveiled its brand new collection for 2015 with the new version compound, Aither 1.1.
The existing tire range has been renewed, not only with the lighter and more flexible compound, but also with new tread patterns and the size balance.
Characteristics of “Aither1.1 Compound”
Aither 1.1 has much enhanced elasticity than Aither 1.0, 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 tires, taking this a step closer to ideal bike tire.
This is no more an “Evolution”, but is a “Revolution” !
As well as having qualities such as similar weight, grip performance, ride durability, similar rolling resistance rate, and similar Price Point as pneumatic tires, with this new compound upgrade, the Tannus Aither1.1 version can withstand the commuting and training – supporting the cyclists of the world by terminating the biggest headache of bikes – punctures.
