[PRNewswire] Mobike launches new e-bike using tires made with solutions from

(SHANGHAI, Aug. 1, 2018 PRNewswire=연합뉴스) Mobike, one of the world's largest bike-sharing companies, is adding e-bikes to its fleet that use innovative foamed integrated tire solutions from The Dow Chemical Company.

The new e-bike featuring the tires launched at Mobike's Beijing headquarters on July 5. The tires are a result of a partnership between Dow and Hangzhou Zhongce Rubber to develop a tire solution based on mixing Dow's INFUSE™ Olefin Block Copolymer (OBC), ENGAGE™ Polyolefin Elastomers and NORDEL™ EPDM.

The Mobike E-bike is optimized for ease of riding, such that a rider can support the bike's weight with one foot when at a standstill. It also incorporates many user-friendly designs such as a mobile phone holder and an easily adjustable seat. These e-bikes have top speeds of 20 kilometers per hour which will help meet the travel needs of many residents that require travel distances of three to five kilometers.

"Compared with normal pneumatic or one-piece tires, the foamed integrated OBC tire can reduce tire weight by 20~30%, a significant contributor to the overall weight reduction efforts," said Xudong Huang, APAC Assoc. TS&D Director II of Elastomers and Infrastructure, Consumer, Transportation (ICT) for P&SP. "With its superior weather-ability performance, the OBC tire can endure a wide range of harsh climates while the good resilience brings better cushioning to ensure a more enjoyable riding experience."

The faster bicycle speed poses new challenges to tire durability including stricter tear and impact resistance performance, as well as better ageing performance to resist the heat generated during cycling.
