Eurobike 2014: Schwalbe Procore Dual Chamber Tyre

by 11

Schwalbe has developed a MTB tyre that features dual air chambers that it claims pretty much eliminates both pinches and burps.

The outer chamber is filled with blue stuff only for demo purposes. That's the tubeless low pressure chamber.

It works by having a smaller air chamber that sits in the well of the rim with the space between that and the tyre being used as a conventional tubeless system. The inner chamber is designed to be inflated to a pinch-preventing high pressure while allowing the outer chamber to work as a low pressure tubeless system for lots of grip.

So impressed were the folks with the powers at Eurobike that it won an award for being really quite a neat idea.
