The New Slick is made using patented puncture proof resin called Aither 1.1 that allows the New Slick design to replicate the weight and resistance of a standard tire and be the only airless bicycle tire to weigh the same as the standard tire, tube, and rim-strip combination. In addition to the minimal weight and resistance, the Slick repels the elements and provides a guaranteed 5000 miles of flat proof riding. The New Slick even excels in wet conditions with increased grip and also offers no stretching in the heat.
Without the worry for flats, the New sllick can be used for today’s wider rims accommodating a wider size than other Tannus tires. It’s perfect for commuting over pesky cobblestones in Roubaix and glass shards in New York back-alleys. It has been hailed by our racers as the best handling tire of all the Tannus tires. This is the perfect training tire for those aspiring road racers who want to push themselves harder without ever having to pump up their tires again.
