non-pneumatic . . .how's the ride? Id imagine pretty rough. The new material would need to provide a lot of cushioning effect.

I keep hoping someone will bring this concept to production. But, I sincerely hope they don't stick with the Applesque iFlex name, ewwww.

The Apple iFlex?

It sounds like something Apple would make. :D

With those colors, one could get one to match the color of the car?

I wonder how they look when dirty or old/worn. Maybe there's a reason why tires are black, and nobody buys whitewalls anymore? But just add a rope, and they'd make a nice swing.

i've had airless inner tubes on my bike for a decade (No-Mor-Flats), it's a 30 year old 12 speed touring bike (26x1-3/8), also have a pair of 16x1.75 tubes that are not on anything, want to put on my Strida folding bike, that has 16x1.5 Kendas. we'll just have to wait and see.

Hankook’s airless car tires should hit the market very, very soon

Inhabitat.
I like how this looks.

I think this is an improvement over the original post.

Sorry to say, but the 2nd article (from inhabitat) is only 4 days newer than the July 15th article (from Gizmag). In any case, someone advise them to change the product's name, please!
