iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2017

Since it is difficult to measure from the outside, most cyclists rarely check the tire pressure before their ride which may cause safety concerns during cycling. SPIO is a smart tire pressure stabilizer, combining tire pressure detection system with wind driven compressor. It allows cyclists to reinflate the tire automatically when the pressure is low. Lacking tire pressure causes a fatigue cycling experience, also has a chance of leading to wheel rim deformation and even results in injuries from falling. The design provides cyclists a comfortable and safe cycling experience.

If this works from the technological point of view, it's a very smart idea.
