Self-Healing Bike Tires
The Michelin ProTek Max Inner Tubes Make Flats a Thing of the Past

By: Meghan Young (Superstar) Apr 16, 11

Bike-riding season is officially upon us, and I wouldn’t be surprised if many cyclists out there are cursing the all the debris that is still on the roads, causing potential flat tires at every turn; enter the Michelin ProTek Max inner tubes. With this exciting new bicycle technology, flats will be a thing of the past.

The Michelin ProTek Max inner tubes feature compression dimples that change the distribution of pressure across the tube’s surface. If a puncture happens, unlike traditional tires that eventually expand the hole, the Michelin ProTek Max inner tube actually causes the inner air pressure to squeeze a hole shut.

The Michelin ProTek Max inner tube also boasts a square cross section for super-easy installation.
