Pressure Point Tire
Inspirations - Outer appearance has a three dimensional outlook. The operation was inspired by pressure point hospital beds that prevent bedsores.
Operation - The pressure from when the tire rotates puts pressure on spring attachments that flex a steel band that sits between two molds. The attachment is attached to the rim with a pin allowing the attachment to move inward and out. This allows the tire to be airless preventing flats and fast wear.
