Illegal, defective or under-inflated tyres contributed to 2,288 reported car accidents on British roads between 2014 and 2018, according to the latest statistics from the Department for Transport – more than any other vehicle defect. Ahead of Road Safety Week (18-24 November), British technology firm Fit2Go TPMS, a Michelin licensee and best known for its tyre pressure monitoring systems, says its handy Michelin Pressure Checker gadget could help to significantly cut those figures.
The Michelin Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) – Bike has been crowned the winner of the Innovation & Use of Technology Award at The TyreSafe Awards ceremony. Designed by Global Michelin licensee Fit2Go TPMS, the product was launched onto the European market in January 2019 – introducing new levels of safety for riders, for whom tyre condition is critical.
British technology firm Fit2Go TPMS, a global licensee for Michelin, has launched its first tyre pressure monitoring system for motorcycles, mopeds and scooters – introducing new levels of safety for riders for whom tyre condition is critical. The Michelin TPMS – Bike is a ‘plug & play’ retrofit kit that comes as standard with a magnetic display mount, inductive charger and two sensors, replacing the original valve caps. It brings the same direct TPMS technology already launched for the passenger car and commercial vehicle markets to two-wheels for the first time.
