      Has anyone ever heard of reTyre? The launched this product that I describe as a tire skin. I talked about it to my friends and they say nobody will be interested in it. I think that’s BS so I want to prove it’s kind of cool.

      Anyone heard of this? What’re your thoughts on it?

      That’s a really interesting solution, but I can’t imagine it’s much less expensive than just buying a dedicated set of spiked tires. And in terms of ease of installation, I’d say it would be slightly easier/quicker to swap tires than to install zippers on both sides & zip up the covering. Not to mention I’d be concerned about the skins coming off mid-ride or causing an issue with the tire bead (will this even work with tubeless tires?).
