If you’ve ever been biking and wished you had skinnier or thicker tires to match the uphill ride or downhill terrain, then you’re in luck. reTyre lets bikers instantly swap out their tire treads to match their current terrain conditions.
The reTyre Modular System consists of two parts in order to make tire changing as easy as zipping up your coat. First, reTyre One functions as the base tire with integrated zippers that are attached to the sidewall. Next, the reTyre Skins are interchangeable surfaces that are equipped to ride for different road and weather conditions. The skins meld with reTyre One, and the tight fit ensures the tire fulfills its riding duties. A new skin can be attached whenever needed.
Additionally, the reTyre Trail X Skin offers tread pattern protection when riding on mud, soft ground, trails and mountain terrain, while the multipurpose skin is designed for gravel or wet environments. The reTyre urban winter allows avid bikers to continue their passion into the frigid cold season, with 156 lightweight carbide studs to ensure safe grip on icy roads.
This zipper system is recreating bikes to be completely versatile.
