wonder what the weight of them would be when there filled with thick sticky stinking mud and grass with the odd stick jamed in there as well :wink:
great idea though if it could be sorted out for the countrys where most of the year your going to come across mud and s**t at some point !!

Mick :D

Stick a thin flexible skin over the sidewalls to keep the mud/rocks/mice and general countryside out and it would be a sounder idea. Why cant designers spot the flaw your average punter spots within the first 10 seconds :roll: :lol:

and add some air pressure so you can very the ride characteristics, bingo a wonderful product that doesn't mind if all the air escapes.

It says in the comments that they will be with a transparent skin to keep the look. So to be fair - it does seem like they thought of it already.
