Christian Lembacher (material science engineer) and Akos Kertesz (mechanical engineer) are the founders of Tubolito. In their previous job, the enthusiastic mountain bikers, were developing loudspeakers for mobile phones. Working on new high-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.
