The 700x23c Aither Solid Bicycle Tire
Newson’s is proud to be the first bikes shop in Canada to bring you the game changing Aither Airless Bicycle Tire by Tannus. These tires have been tested globally for 10 years, they are perfect for all kinds of cycling, but whatever, and however you ride, you will never catch a flat ever again.
The Aither is made from a nano porous hi-tech foam that withstands staining by chemicals, any environmental extremes on the planet, yet has amazing riding characteristics.
What sets Tannus apart from any competition in the bicycle industry is the RIDE. Years of real life testing, in all possible extremes, have resulted in the perfect tire. A prefect mix of grip and comfort.
The 23mm (23c) tire is the go-to road bike airless tire. Compatible with ALU clincher rims with an ETRTO of 13-15mm.
The 700x23c R-grade Tannus Solid Tyre, the most modern solid tyre in the world. Aither 1.1 R-Grade: The perfect hardness (100psi equivalent), incredible grip and extremely low rolling resistance, finally offers 1 compound for all riders.
The Nano Technology Foam “Aither” patented by Tannus is engineered to provide maximum comfort, minimum rolling resistance and extreme durability. All Tannus tyres are rigorously tested to survive at least 6000 miles, but we have seen them do much more. Once installed, the tyres do not require any attention, no pump as they never go flat, they never change pressure, and always guarantee uniform performance on all surface conditions throughout their life span. Ride Tannus Solid Tyres like you would any other tyre, wet or dry, fast or slow, on a light bike, or fully weighed down on a cycling tour, the Tannus tyres can do it all, without any bad surprises.
Unlike ANY other bicycle tyre in the world, Tannus Solid Tyres are TÜV Safety certified meaning they offer what no other tire can, 100% reliability, and Safety. The patented Locking Pin System ensures the tyre will always stay on the rim, and the nano tech Aither guarantees incredible traction and shock absorption.
The 700x23c Aither 1.1 is compatible with most modern road and city bicycles with 28” wheels and ETRTO (inner rim width) of 13-15mm. For other rim widths please check the other tyre sizes. (Be sure to check you rim width before purchase)
The 23c is a perfect upgrade for any modern “road bike”, and weighing in at 380gr. (less than most air tyre+tube), it might just shave a few grams off your bicycle, not to mention the pump, tyre levers and spare tube you can now leave at home forever.
Each Tannus tyre comes with all necessary tools and fitting instructions for home installation, however it is recommended that it be fitted by a licensed Tannus fitting service to guarantee safety and performance. If you do decide to fit them yourself make sure your wheel is trued, in proper working order, with all spokes properly tensioned and, if necessary repair the wheel before fitting. Make sure to follow the provided instructions very carefully.
It is important to make sure that the Tannus tire you want will fit your rim.
Check for Locking Pin sizes that will fit your rim.
The width of your rim is one of the most important factors when determining which Tannus tire is right for you. Each Tannus tire model and size comes with different sets of locking pins for mounting the tire to the rim. Below is a chart of the locking pin sizes that come with each tire. Select a tire that comes with locking pins that are approximately 3.5 mm wider (give or take 1mm) than the INNER width of your bike rim.
Check the tire size.
Matching the tire size to what is currently on your bike is a good place to start, but you may need to select a Tannus tire that is slightly wider or narrower to fit your rim. When in doubt, go with the narrower tire since it will be easier to install.
Tires generally have their size listed in two formats on the sidewall. First is the size in inches or cm, second is the ISO or ETRTO size. Using the ETRTO size number from your tire tends to be more accurate and less confusing. A tire with an ETRTO size marked 37-622 indicates the width of 37 mm and the tire inner diameter of 622 mm. This designation is clear and allows an unequivocal match with the corresponding rim size.
A Tannus tire needs to fit snugly into your rim to ensure a safe ride and proper mounting.
If your rim looks like it will use the smallest locking pins that comes with the tire, it will be more difficult to install. This is because the bottom part of the tire that gets pressed into the rim is a fixed width, and the narrower the rim the more work you will have to do to “tuck” the tire in under the clincher part of your rim. For narrower rims, we recommend purchasing the Installation Pliers ( P-Tool) if you are planning to do the install yourself. This tool helps to apply more pressure to the Locking Pins with less hand strength.
