If you’ve ever ridden over nails or glass, or taken a particularly harsh curb with your bike, you know what a hassle it is to have a flat tire. Either get yourself covered in bike grease replacing it, or lug your bike to the nearest repair shop. Bridgestone, better known for car tires, has a new option that may skip the need for inflation, and avoid punctures altogether. Their Air Free Bicycle Tire concept utilizes a system of inner flexible spokes that doesn’t inflate at all. They claim the tire uses much less rubber to make, as well.  The tire looks pretty cool, too. Added bonus. Via Uncrate:
