Riders, thank Brian Russell of Britek Tire and Rubber for this amazing design—the Energy Return Wheel. Great, now why are we thanking him and what exactly is so impressive about it besides the fancy name? Well, glad you asked; these tires don’t need air—which means no flats! The wheels feature a new technology comprised of rubber stretched over a series of carbon nano tube reinforced composite rods that give the same feel of an air-filled tire—technical I know, but the main point is NO MORE FLATS. The Energy Return Wheel is currently still a prototype, so save riding over a bed of nails for later.
