Nexo Tires Co-Founder Dave Ballard, one of three biking evangelists who has operated Utah’s Noble Cycling for seven years, says they’ve serviced “literally thousands of flat tires” at their bike store and they wanted to find a solution for their customers.

“Nothing ruins a bike ride or commute faster than a flat, and flats can cost between $15 and $30 to fix, so to save our customers money and the frustration of a flat, we created a better solution,” Ballard said. “We believe Ever Tires and Nexo Tires will be something every cyclist will want once they hear about them.”

Nexo Tires are rated for up to 5,000 kilometers and, developed for discerning bike enthusiasts who prefer hybrids, commuters, road bikes and folding bikes, are air-less and tube-less.

Ever Tires can be installed in five minutes or less, and are lighter than traditional tires, making them easier to handle and install.

Ballard said they created Nexo Tires, which can be added to existing rims, because “these riders are more particular about their equipment.” Nexo Tires are installed using a patented ‘T-bolt’ technology, and take about 15 minutes to secure.

Nexo Tires are available in 20″, 26″, 27.5″, 700 x 24c and 700 x 35c sizes.

Ballard notes that both puncture-proof products are also eco-friendly, using less material and creating less waste – and the long-lasting tires are easy to recycle, unlike common bike tires that sit in landfills for generations.

Ever/Nexo Tire backers are being offered early bird specials starting at just $75 during crowdfunding. For more information, visit the Ever Tires/Nexo Tires Campaign Page on Kickstarter.
