Uptis (Unique Puncture-Proof Tire System) is an airless mobility solution for passenger vehicles, which eliminates the dangerous risk of flat tires and blowouts that result from punctures or road hazards.
Through Michelin’s expertise in high-tech materials, Uptis is a significant development in existing airless mobility technology. Uptis eliminates regular maintenance, such as pressure checks, and inspections for damage, such as punctures. This makes Uptis ideal for the vehicles of tomorrow, from self-driving shuttles to all-electric vehicles.
Uptis’s revolutionary design and materials will yield massive sustainability benefits, such as reducing the number of tires that are condemned to scrap and reducing overall raw materials and energy used in tire production.
