Foss Environmentally Friendly Tubes
Foss Worldwide Inc. premiered at Taipei Cycle this year its environmentally friendly tubes (EFT).
The Foss tubes are made from a highly polymerized un-vulcanized rubber composite. When punctured, the material forms an air-tight seal around the nail or glass, retarding the leak speed, giving riders extra time to react.
With a density of only 0.88 g/cc, the EFT tubes are 30% lighter than traditional tubes. Made from modified thermoplastic elastomer compounds (TPE) the EFT tubes can be recycled with other TPE products, thus minimizing waste and protecting the environment. Made in Taiwan Foss tubes are available in 14 different sizes.
