It's come again another Kickstarter that you should probably avoid. The wonderful GIF above was lifted from their Kickstarter page. I was interested in checking out this new tire product. I have a dream of an air free tire but so far they have been pretty much crap. Either super squish, needing special rims and wheels. So of course I check almost every post on the subject hoping one day my dream will come true.
This is not that day( #fucktrump )Didn't like the design the holes will collect dirt and mud and requires you purchase their wheels with the tire installed. But hey they have a second option call the Nexxo! You can mount them on your own rims and ride pump free and they are available in a bunch of colors. Then I saw their launch schedule and realized they will be shipping in January and then it struck me how familiar these things looked.
They were familiar because they are already a product on the market and funny enough uses the same name. So its a kickstarter for a bike shop to order some tires from Taiwan. I know the Silca Allen keys are made by PB Swiss and I own a set. But at least they came with a nifty box and some additional bits(for less than the cost of the bare set from PB swiss). So yeah this is a 100% crap product get some Gator Skins or Armadillos if you want puncture protection but you will still need a pump.
