Christian Lembacher (material science engineer) and Akos Kertesz (mechanical engineer) are the founders of Tubolito. In their previous job, the enthusiastic mountainbikers, were developing loudspeakers for mobile phones. Working on new hight-tech materials as a membrane material for loudspeakers, which needs to be very light and robust, the idea came up to revolutionize the 100 year old bike tubes made of rubber.
Using a new high-tech thermoplastic elastomer and combined with a unique manufacturing technology Tubolito is capable of delivering very light, robust and reliable bike tubes to their customers.
We love biking and want to make the cycling experience even greater – whether in the woods or on the road, with muscle power or supported by an electric motor. As engineers it is our ambition to offer high-end and high-quality products. We are constantly working on optimizing our tubes and developing new product ranges. We, as passionate tube engineers, are convinced that this is only the beginning of a fascinating journey. The use of new technologies and high-tech materials will further revolutionize the bike tube industry.
