Flexup, is a tire that was designed to guarantee a comfortable and pleasant riding experience even in the terrible road conditions of crowded and narrow urban streets, a performance that cannot be achieved with existing tires. Utilizing the principle of divided treads being expanded and contracted makes it even possible for a vehicle equipped with Flexup to move through stairs easily. It is a futuristic single mobility solution, which makes use of the tilting principle used in skiing so that tires can freely corner on level ground.
