hutchinson serenity no flat tire system 204x300   Hutchinson Serenity No Flat Tire System

Hutchinson tires unveils the Serenity, an airless tire system which boasts of a flat-proof ride. Developed together with Biron Engineering, the Serenity is not one solid rubber tire. Instead, it is made with a microcell foam that is a light, strong and durable composite structure with 50psi.

The new Serenity tires means no more air pressure maintenance because the tires don’t have air in them. It has low rolling resistance and has no rim beads.

Hutchinson also reduces waste materials with the Serenity and provides you the option to mix and match the treads to your desired composite structures. There is also a wide range of colors to choose from and although a 700c version is still in development, there are now 20, 24 and 26 inch versions of the tire.

The new changes of this product is the shape of it’s bead-cross section.
