If there’s one thing that’s plagued cyclists since the invention of the pneumatic tire, it’s the dreaded puncture. Enter METL, the revolutionary solution that’s redefining the way we think about bike tires. This game-changer hails from the SMART Tire Company, utilizing NASA-developed technology to bring us the future of cycling. Say goodbye to flat tires and hello to the world’s first re-treadable bicycle tire.
METL is not your run-of-the-mill airless tire; it’s made from Nitinol, an advanced alloy that combines the flexibility of rubber with the durability of titanium. SMART, which fittingly stands for Shape Memory Alloy Radial Technology, reduces rubber usage by 50%, making it environmentally conscious and efficient. Currently, METL is gaining momentum on Kickstarter, with nearly $140,000 pledged. Prepare to ride the future with METL and watch as cutting-edge technology transforms your cycling experience.
