Made from a very special Micro Closed Cell Polymer Resin “Aither”, Tannus tyre uses a foaming technology. Adn, it may look similar to that used in many lightweight sports shoes, but it is totally different from any other foaming technology both in terms of its process or the condition. It is made from the one-and-only material “Aithercompound” with a very unique foaming process.

THE CELL (under microscope)

Aither1.1 had much enhanced elasticity than Aither1.0, ensuring a better feel whilst riding and good grip performance.Furthermore, Aither1.1 is performing at a much lower rolling resistance-approximately 15% less. It now has the rolling resistance rate that closely matches premium pneumatic city bike tyres, taking this a step closer to ideal bike tyre.

This is no more an “Evolution”, but is a “Revolution”!


How easy are they to fit?

It all depends on the individual, but it should take 10 to 15 minutes per tyre. Once they are on, you do not need to take them off. Also, we recommend that you get them fitted from an authorised Tannus dealer, (please see the Tannus Tyres website for the nearest stockist or distributor).

What's the ride like?

It rides like a normal pneumatic tyre and will feel like they are pumped up at all times.

How many grades are there?

… 700 x 23 and 28 only.

How long do they last?

Depending on the rider, the Tannus tyres lasts up to 10000Km (6000miles).

How do I take it off?

There would be no need for the tyres to be removed once fitted. However they will only need to be removed to replace a broken spoke and we recommend that if this occurs, that you take the wheel to an authorised Tannus dealer.

How are they in the wet?

They perform and behave the same as a normal pneumatic tyre.

What weight they can take?

The Tannus tyres can withstand the weight of 150kg (75kg for each tyre).

Whats the weight of the Tyre?

The Tannus tyre is extremely light; its weight may surprise you. (For example; the 700 x 23c is 380g). Lighter than most tyre and tube combinations.

Whats the equivalent Psi (tyre pressure) On the 700 x 23 or 28?

It’s about 100 PSI on the Tannus regular grade. (Some people do complain that it is a harsh ride; however that is because they are riding on constantly pumped tyres). There are approximately 75% of the cyclist population that don’t even bother looking at their tyres unless there is a problem, thereafter end up riding on only 40-50 PSI.

What is the rolling resistance like for road racing and triathlon?

Even though the Tannus tyre is 1-2 km per/hr slower than the fastest road tyres, these would be perfect for all forms or road users doing long distance events.


Tannus Tyres has a reputation on its durability. We guarantee only 1.5mm of wear after riding 9000km. This is accomplished by the unique structure of our compound.


This is gripping stuff! The Tannus Tyre will be faithful, its durability and reliability has got validation from the most reputable German testing organisation TÜV (Technischer Überwachungsverein/Technical Inspection Association).


You don’t have to change the rim. If you have the existing clincher type rim, it can be retrofitted right away regardless of its size. Due to our development of the Locking Pin System, you can use Tannus Tyres on your own bicycle easily and safely.


Since our tyres contain no air in the conventional way, there is no need to carry pumps, tyres, inner tubes, tools & leavers. Our Micro Closed-Cell Polymer Foam Material, Aither, is a highly stable and independent material.
