Getting a flat is never fun, and while there are plenty of remedies, Kenda Tube Protectors might be another to consider. This tire liner is made of durable yet lightweight polyurethane that is meant to be inserted between the bike tire and the tubes, and thus provides an extra protective layer between road hazards and the inner tube. This can help protect from thorns, glass and other objects that could leave you walking home.
Unlike rubber this material is actually lighter, thus adding little extra weight to the bicycle and is reportedly 97 percent effective in preventing flats from road debris.

As we’ve often said a flat tire can be annoying. While it won’t ruin the day, it can ruin a bike ride. But @cme is a new brand that is looking to solve an old and all too common problem. The company, which was founded by bicycle industry veteran Steve Boehmke, looks to solve the flat tire problem.
Currently in a Kickstarter campaign to raise funding, Boehmke’s concept is aimed at causal riders who might be turned off from riding because of flats. The company developed and introduced its no-flat tire system. The catch is that the system works on very specific sized rims and are a bit difficult to install. The tires also weigh more than most traditional tires too, but the tire is rated to last 3000 miles and the company can build the wheels, pre-mount the tires and ship them to users for use on the rider’s bikes.
