For years and periodically tubeless tires have been proposed for all vehicles: their adoption is struggling to reach its fulfillment (perhaps for the interests of manufacturers to have more wear on this product to favor faster replacement: thinking badly makes you sin, but sometimes you guess).
Perhaps for bikes, however, it is time to say goodbye to annoying punctures and more or less makeshift remedies for inflating punctured tires.
