The need for air is eliminated with a revolutionary structure capable of supporting the vehicle, while also delivering a safe, comfortable ride. This is a technological challenge that Michelin's R&D teams have been able to meet, thanks in particular to the Group's high level of expertise in high-tech materials. The Group intends to take advantage of this expertise acquired over more than 130 years to accelerate the development of new fields beyond tires.
