These new airless tires, will never need to be inflated or the air pressure maintained, and you will never get a flat tyre from running over a nail.
MICHELIN Uptis (Unique Puncture-Proof Tire System) is an airless mobility solution for passenger vehicles, which eliminates the dangerous risk of flat tires and blowouts that result from punctures or road hazards.
Uptis features ground-breaking improvements in architecture and composite materials, which enable Uptis to bear the car’s weight at road-going speeds. These innovations combine to eliminate compressed air to support the vehicle’s load, and result in extraordinary environmental savings: approximately 200 million tires worldwide are scrapped prematurely every year as a result of punctures, damage from road hazards or improper air pressure that causes uneven wear
The Uptis Prototype represents a major advancement toward achieving Michelin’s VISION concept, which was presented at the Movin’On Summit in 2017 as an illustration of Michelin’s strategy for research and development in sustainable mobility.
The VISION concept introduced four main pillars of innovation: airless, connected, 3D-printed and 100% sustainable (entirely renewable or bio-sourced materials).
Thanks for watching.
