The FLEXEL puncture proof system is an extruded natural rubber compound that replaces the air-filled inner tube in a tyre. As it is a cellular compound and utilises a conventional pneumatic tyre, FLEXEL is capable of offering virtually the same ride characteristics as a fully inflated pneumatic tyre.
The need to constantly check tyre pressures is eliminated, and as the tyre is always at the correct ‘pressure’ optimum tyre wear is guaranteed. The patented manufacturing system also enables a high degree of control as to how soft or hard a tyre should be, by the amount of rubber compound that is put into the tyre.
The FLEXEL puncture proof system is unique and excellent value for money so it makes sense to switch to our fully puncture proof system for total peace of mind.
Note: if your rims are two-piece, it's easy to fit these at home. If your wheels are one piece (most common) it's required that you have experience in fitting these. We do not recommend undertaking this task without a solid know-how of what you're doing.
"We have developed into the “One Stop Shop” for the mobility industry, selling everything from tyres, batteries and castors to solid tyres, ramps and wheels. With the opening of Flexel Europe Ltd in 2009, we now sell to over 1500 customers in 10 countries, and are continuing to grow. Our workforce is now 20, with a lot of the original team still part of the Flexel family."
