Regular readers of this site will know that I was born with two left hands. I am incapable of doing anything mechanical on my motorcycle, and that involves changing tires. For example when the winter arrives, I would love to continue riding, but that would mean putting on studded tires, and that means travelling 200 kms to the closest dealer, something I will not do either.

Ideally I would have a James Bond style tire; push a button and out comes the studs. Why not? Well, that what Finnish tire maker Nokian Open Nokian link in a new window thought as well.

They have developed a tire that by the press of a button deploys the tire's studs. What's more, since it's activated electronically, you can place some intelligence behind it. Like having a smartphone monitor the weather and road conditions, and if it starts freezing, automatically deploy the studs.

So far, it's a concept, a study. But hopefully we'll see this technology reach our motorcycle shortly. You can click here to read more about the automatic studded tires from Nokian. Open You can click here to read more about the automatic studded tires from Nokian. link in a new window
