What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Changing tires is time-consuming   

But imagine if changing your bike tire was as quick and easy as zipping on your jacket. Without any need to take off the tire or using extra tools.   

We are proud to introduce the reTyre Modular System. The system consists of two parts. 

  • reTyre ONE; our base tire with integrated zippers attached to the sidewall
  • reTyre Skins; interchangeable surfaces that are suitable for different road and weather conditions. The Skins match reTyre One perfectly, and the tight fit ensures that the skin acts and feels like a normal tire.
         

Better than a normal tire

  • reTyre is similar to your normal, old, boring tire, but has a reinforced zipper system with a smooth signature blue line - and if you want to add it, a reflective stripe for increased safety. 
  • With our base tyre - reTyre One - you're ready to roll! And if you experience other road conditions than asphalt and concrete, where you might wish you had better grip, you'll have reTyre Skins. Just choose the skin you prefer, zip it on in less than a minute and you’re all set!

Well tested and verified

  • We have rigorously tested and improved the reTyre System all around the world. Over the past year, more than 4,500 units of the alpha version have been sold and tested.   
  • reTyre is the only tire that allows you to change the tire surface to match any condition you face. Whether it’s snow or ice, the bike trail, downhill, off-road, or pure asphalt, with reTyre you’re always ready for what comes next. Support us today and join in the future development of the reTyre system.

Don’t waste more time on unnecessary tire changes, or spend your money in a shop that will change your tire for you, pledge today and take advantage of these MASSIVE discounts.  

In 2015, we set out to find an easier way to change the bike tire, to account for the shifting weather and winter conditions in Norway. Two years of development and testing later, we were able to launch a successful alpha version of our product last year, of which we sold more than 4500 tires in Norway and Sweden. We even had several of the largest Sports chains selling our product.

Through this process, we gained invaluable experience and knowledge in the team. This has enabled us to develop the next version of reTyre. 

We celebrate the arrival of the first reTyre Alpha products.

Our own factory

We have set up our own production and assembly facilities with great care and with the help of our experienced partners. We personally make sure that every aspect of the production meets the highest requirements for quality, environmental and working conditions. 

Our factories meet and exceed all environmental production standards. reTyre alpha version was successfully produced here last fall. We now need your help to increase production speed and capacity.

Risks and challenges

We have a full team dedicated to bringing this to life. With the success of the first-generation tire system, we are confident in our team, manufacturing partners and supply chain. We will do our very best to communicate frequent and transparently about the progress and status.

As with all physical products it is a challenge to get everything right simultaneously and there will always be a possibility of delays. We are always operating ahead of problems and try to anticipate everything that could cause a delay, and act on that before it happens. We are conservative when setting deadlines and respect that things take time. That said, we are regularly on the production site in person to ensure that we have the best progression possible.

Quality control is of critical importance for us, and every product shipped goes through a thorough quality checklist.
