Tannus Aither 1.1 Solid Structure Tire..

The Aither 1.1 should be able to last for 9.000 km of riding without losing as much as 1.5 mm of tread. The main feature of any solid structure tire is that they can’t go flat but there is a certain issue when it comes to them. As they are solid, they can add more resistance to your cycling and no one wants to experience that. The Aither 1.1 aims to eliminate this factor entirely with the material which is used in its production. This solid tire is made from micro closed cell polymer resin, which is basically a type of foam. It is  thanks to this material that the tire is extremely light, as it weighs almost as a pneumatic tire.

Toothbrush to the Bicycle Tire - Sarah Kay

A Love Letter from the Toothbrush to the Bicycle Tire

They told me that I was meant for the cleaner life
That you would drag me through the mud
They said that you would tread all over me
That they could see right through you
That you were full of hot air
That I would always be chasing
Always watching you disappear after sleeker models
That it would be a vicious cycle
But I know better
I know about your rough edges
And I have seen your perfect curves
I will fit into whatever spaces you let me
If loving you means getting dirty
Bring on the grime
I will leave this porcelain home behind
I’m used to twice a day relationships
But with you, I’ll take all the time
And I know that we live in different worlds
And we’re always really busy
But in my dreams
You spin around me so fast
I always wake up dizzy
So, maybe one day
You’ll grow tired of the road
And roll on back to me
And when I blink my eyes into morning
Your smile will be the only one I see.

Love Letter From Toothbrush to Bicycle Tire

They told me that I was meant for the cleaner life, that you would drag me through the mud. They said that you would tread all over me, that they could see right through you, that you were full of hot air, that I would always be chasing, always watching you disappear after sleeker models, that it would be a vicious cycle.

But I know better. I know about your rough edges and I have seen your perfect curves, and I will fit into any spaces you let me. If loving you means getting dirty, bring on the grime, I will leave this porcelain home behind. I’m used to twice a day relationships, but with you, I’ll take all the time. And I know, we live in different world and we’re always really busy.

But in my dreams, you spin around me so fast I always wake up dizzy. So maybe one day you’ll grow tired of the road and roll on back to me. And when I blink my eyes into the morning, your smile will be the only thing I see.
