  • Claimed 2-3 longer life compared to pneumatic tires [1]
  • Resistance higher due to higher contact patch - [2]
  • Current conclusion: too much resistance. OSE solution: 3D printed, with needle-fillable high-T silicone rubber eyelets (self-sealing caps) used for filling air pockets. Multiple air pockets exist, and tire is rideable with numerous punctures. This is silicone or butyl-rubber Septum.
