Tweel – Airless Tyres Taking the Auto Industry by Storm



With every passing day, the number of vehicles on the roads are increasing at a fast pace. This has not been observed in a certain location. In fact, it is common across the globe. It’s really sad to see that even the excellent looking vehicles or those personalized with private number plates are involved in accidents.

Did you know?

As many as 1.3 million people are killed in road accidents every year. And in many cases, it’s the car to blame for this problem. It is the tire of the car that remains in touch with the ground. And in many cases, the accident occurs when the tire bursts or there is low air inside it.

To reduce the number of accidents on the roads, companies have been looking to improve car design. And many of them have come up with ways to achieve it. Several innovative techniques have been introduced. One such innovation is the introduction of airless tyres.

Accidents Caused by Flat Tires

Malfunctioning of the tyres is surely one of the major causes of road accidents that happen all over the world on a regular basis. And one of the most common occurrences  is tyre blow out.  When blow out happens, the driver tends to lose control of the vehicle. As a result, it can lead to serious accidents.

How can This Problem be Solved?

Most of the companies were wary of this problem of flat tyres causing accidents. So, a question was doing the rounds: how can this be solved?

Experts have wondered about this and come up with a unique plan. They have introduced tyres for cars, which are not inflated with air. Airless Tyres – this is what these tyres are. And the concept of this type of tyre was named Tweel, a blend of tyre and wheel, way back in 2005 by the French tyre company Michelin.

So, how is Tweel likely to come in handy for the riders?

This type of airless tyre is going to make the ride better than ever before. It will ensure that you don’t have to experience a bumpy ride, no matter what the condition of the road is. So, the ride becomes comfortable and you can enjoy it to the fullest.

How is Tweel Made?

Tweel is manufactured in such a way that it can function as a tyre without any air.

How does it perform that way?

Tweel has spokes, which are manufactured in a special way. These spokes are able to absorb the impact of the bumpy ride. This task is performed with ease in pneumatic tyres by the air pressure, which is present in the tubes. In this type of tyre, the tread and shear bands usually get deformed temporarily when the spike bends due to the pressure on hitting the ground. But they soon return to their original shape. Thus, they function in a perfect way to give the experience of normal tyres to the riders without even having the air inside them.

When it comes to the durability and the performance of the tyres, the tension of the spokes play a major role. This is true in case of Tweels as well. These airless tyres are made from spokes of different types of tensions. So, they can be used under various circumstances. The varied tensions of the spokes help to manage the stress of various levels, thus making it easier for the riders to move in cars that have those tyres.

Expected to Become Affordable Soon

It has not been long since Tweel Airless Tyres have been introduced. And like any other new innovations, its price is on the high side. However, this is expected to change soon, as these airless tyres are being manufactured by a lot of companies. And they are likely to be integrated in a large number of cars pretty soon. So, the prices are also expected to come down to a certain extent.

So, you can now expect to go for cars with tweels or airless tyres. They can decorate these cars with personalised number plates and hit the road with those. These cars are experiencing increased popularity and are expected to become widespread in near future.
