Go Green with Ride-On and reduce your carbon footprint

Go Green

Ride-On does more than simply protect against flat tires. Ride-On’s unique qualities also help to protect the environment! A vehicle equipped with Ride-On not only profits form a safe and comfortable ride, but also a reduced fuel consumption and increased tire life. The secret? Sealing and balancing.

By sealing the tire Ride-On decreases the porosity by 500%. This causes the tire to lose less air over the course of time and retain proper pressure much longer. Balancing makes the tires less wobbly. These qualities combined decrease the rolling resistance of the tire on the road, resulting in less tire wear and less fuel consumption. The US Department of Transportation has calculated the potential fuel savings if everyone were to keep their tires at proper pressure: more than 5,4 million liters of fuel per day. That would be no different in Europe. 


What’s so important about maintaining proper tire pressure?

Fuel consumption and tire wear increase noticeably when a tire loses pressure. By keeping the tire pressure optimal, Ride-On helps to limit this: fuel consumption decreases by 3% and tires last 25% longer.


This longer tire lifespan makes less tires end up in landfills, which also requires less tires to be replaced. Maybe not fun for tire manufacturers. But certainly beneficial to the consumer and the environment.

Think about it:

Approximately 22 liters of oil are required for the manufacture of one single truck tire. In Europe alone 260 million tires per year are discarded. We can all contribute to reduce this burden for the environment by 25%.

Moreover, a wearing tire produces rubber fine dust that ends up in the air, surface waters, soil and our bodies. For anyone who’s sensitive to it this can have detrimental effects on their health. 




Sustainable and responsible driving

Transporters, companies and governmental institutions find it increasingly important for their vehicle fleets to drive sustainably and environmentally friendly. They choose Ride-On to achieve their goals. But individuals as well choose more safety on the road, less burden for the environment and a benefit for their wallet.
