What do you do if you’re halfway home on your bike, and it starts snowing? You could throw your bike in a cab, or carry on cycling, hoping you’re not going to slide out and hurt yourself. Or, you could stop and grab the studded tire skins you keep in your pannier, quickly zip them over your bike tires, and then continue on your way safely. That’s the genius of reTyre! It’s a new product that launched on KickStarter last year, and is now doing well. reTyres is a modular tire system that lets you quickly adapt your bike tires to meet changing conditions, such as off-road cycling, or snow. Here’s a video that shows how they work. Note that this video was made for KickStarter, but the KickStarter is over – the company has been successfully funded.
We recently ran a competition to win a set of these reTyres, and now we are happy to announce the winner: Kevin Crawley from Iowa City, Iowa.
