Revolutionary Airless Tires using NASA Technology, METL is now available to the public

The award-winning SMART Tire has a patented load-bearing design that takes advantage of the unique properties of shape memory alloys. These special metals can expand, contract, bend or unbend at a very rapid rate (like rubber) and with so much force that it can move heavy objects. Even with extreme deformation, the tire regains 100% of its shape through phase transitions at the molecular level.

METL Tire Compare to conventional tire.

The first commercial product will be a new kind of airless bicycle tire, METL™. Soon, tires will become a permanent part of vehicles, outlasting other equipment without the need for regular maintenance. A light, flexible, space-age metal that never goes flat, but still rides smooth, will be a critical component in the future of transportation (i.e. electric & autonomous vehicles).
The METL airless bike tire won two CES 2023 Innovation Awards as Honorees in two different categories, Vehicle Tech & Advanced Mobility and Sustainability, Eco-Design & Smart Energy. Want to see and feel our innovative products in-person? The SMART Tire Company will be exhibitors at the 2023 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the largest consumer/tech expo in the world, taking place in Las Vegas.

The estimated price for the METL™ bicycle tire is $100-$150 at launch, or competitively priced as an integrated high-end wheelset. METL airless tires will be available to order Q1 2023.
