Tweel®, our airless radial tyre technology in one single fitted unit
MICHELIN® TWEEL® is a complete wheel + airless radial tyre fitted unit: can in certain applications replace the conventional wheel and tyre assembly.
The key components of this innovative solution are:
• Tread optimised for the intended use.
• High-resistance poly-resin spokes which support weight and absorb impacts, helping make the ride smoother, and provide an energy transfer that reduces tyre bounce.
• A two-piece reinforced steel hub.
There is no need for complex wheel/tyre mounting equipment. Once fitted, there is no air pressure to maintain. In some specific applications, our tweel tyres can perform the same tasks as a traditional pneumatic tyre, but without the inconveniences and downtime associated with punctures.
