Michelin Protek Max: the bike inner tube that makes flat tires child?s play
Maintaining tire pressure in all situations requires a truly revolutionary solution.
The new MICHELIN Protek Max inner tube for city and mountain bikes seals itself after a puncture, considerably reduces pressure loss when the bike is not in use and is incredibly easy to mount. In this way, it responds to bike users? three top priorities.
With its textured surface and square shape, the MICHELIN Protek Max represents a totally new approach to the inner tube. When designing the product, Michelin research and development teams deployed three technological solutions:
A textured surface
Unlike a traditional inner tube, in which a hole tends to get bigger, the MICHELIN Protek Max responds to a puncture by compressing. The hole therefore naturally seals itself through the combined effect of the tube?s textured surface and the injection of a preventive sealant that reinforces the self-sealing process.
A square shape
The MICHELIN Protek Max clings to the tire rim, while eliminating the problem of twisting. This makes the tube easy to mount.
In addition, the right component mix enables the tube to maintain maximum tire pressure when the bike is not in use.
The MICHELIN Protek Max inner tube will go on sale in January 2011.
