In-race tire pressure ‘management system’ to be used at Paris-Roubaix by Team DSM

Team DSM have confirmed that its riders will be using built-in management systems for tire pressure at Paris-Roubaix, meaning riders will be able to adjust pressure from controls on their handlebars during the course of the race.

Earlier today the UCI officially authorized the technology, in a press release that confirmed that a specific product – the Scope Atmoz – will be permitted in road racing.

Dutch company Scope developed the technology, in collaboration with Team DSM, to allow riders to adjust their tire pressure motion while riding, both inflating and deflating pressure.

This is done using an air reservoir housed within the hub, which is then linked via mechanical valves and a hose to the rim, and tubeless tire. Via controls on the handlebar, tire pressure can be controlled electronically, and tracked in real time directly from a bike computer.
