    Never heard of 'em. I'd consider something like that for a commuter but no way I'd use it on my road bikes.

    Inventors have been claiming various run-flat bicycle tire successes for the last 100 years or so. Each and every one has been a failure: lousy ride, heavy, expensive, etc. But I'm sure THIS time they have solved all those issues. Right?

    I always want to believe, since for utilitarian purposes it'd be great.

    This one dies for me with their material of choice, Nexell polymer. Plastic tires in the rain and snow? I don't think so.

    It's also used to make these:
