FORT Flex Lite - NEW Puncture Free Tyre

Since the invention of the pneumatic tyre in 1845, wheeled vehicles have enjoyed the benefits of an air cushion between the machine and the surface on which it runs. A flexible pneumatic tyre offers better grip on the ground and a smoother, more comfortable ride. For years, the pneumatic tyre was the only form of shock absorbtion available and whilst the benefits of this are plain to see, all  pneumatic tyres are susceptible to punctures, the repair of which can be time-consuming and costly. Motor vehicles have the capacity to carry a spare tyre, but few users of wheelbarrows or warehouse trolleys have a spare wheel on hand when they encounter a flat tyre!

There are many solid rubber or polymer-based alternatives available, but none of these offer the same functioning characteristics of the pneumatic tyre.

Environmentally Friendly
The FORT Flex Lite wheel is 100% compliant with REACH as well as the whole product (the PU tyre and the PP wheel part) does not have any PAH´s (Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons).For over 150 years the puncture has been an unavoidable risk for any wheeled application that demands comfort and flexibility. 4 years ago, FORT introduced their first innovation for a puncture free tyre – FORT Flex. Now they introduce a new product in the line, the puncture free wheel.


The latest innovation is named FORT Flex Lite.

The characteristics and performance of FORT Flex Lite are comparable to those of a pneumatic tyre and are suitable for many wheelbarrows.

Whereas the original FORT Flex is for heavy requirements - mainly for the professional users - the FORT Flex Lite now offers an alternative for domestic use, as well as for less demanding professional use.

The FORT Flex Lite - as its pneumatic counterpart – has a mechanical load and stress distribution profile which offers the optimal footprint under load; large enough to bear the load and ensure excellent contact with the ground, but small enough to maintain steering precision and avoid unnecessary stress to the tread surface. This results in a tyre that handles well on sand and gravel.
