Heavy Duty Motorsports offers NITROTYRE High Purity Nitrogen for your tyres.
NITROTYRE is a high purity nitrogen gas, free of oxygen and moisture, with a molecular size FOUR TIMES larger than that of regular compressed air. A motorcyle tyre filled with regular compressed air loses between 1 and 6 psi per month, whereas a motorcycle tyre filled with NITROTYRE loses 2 psi in 6 months! In addition, the oxygen in plain old compressed air causes your motorcycle tyre pressure to continuously change. Tyre pressure remains constant with NITROTYRE irrespective of any temperature change within the tyre. Fill and maintain your tyres today with NITROTYRE for:
Is filling tyres with Nitrogen harmful to the environment?
NO. Nitrogen is a natural, inert gas that makes up 78% of the air we breathe. Using Nitrogen to fill tyres supports a better environment by saving fuel and reducing the number of tyres to be disposed of in land fills annually. We can all make a difference.
Is nitrogen explosive or a hazard?
NO. Nitrogen is an inert, non-combustible, non-flammable, non-corrosive gas. Nitrogen is very safe!
Do I still need to check tyre pressure?
YES. But, you should find the tyre pressure to be more consistent. While nitrogen will help you maintain proper pressure, you should still check your tyre
pressure on a regular basis as recommended by the tyre manufacturer.
How does it work?
Plain old compressed air is composed of:
Because of their large size, nitrogen molecules are the least permeable and stay in your tyre longer. It’s not about the nitrogen. It’s about reducing oxygen, water vapor and other gases. By reducing the percentage of oxygen, water vapor and other gases in your tyres from 22% to 5% or lower, your tyres will
maintain proper pressure longer than if you use “plain old air.” It has been used for decades on commercial and military aircraft, NASCAR, Formula 1 and Indy race cars as well as heavy mining and construction vehicles.
What if I need to add air at some point and don’t have access to nitrogen?
Not a problem. Just top off with air from any compressor. You may lose a little of the benefit of the nitrogen, but once you get back home just stop by Heavy Duty Motorcycles and we will re-purge your motorcycle tyres for you free of charge.
Do I pay every time that I get new Nitrogen added?
No. The only time you have to pay again is when you have a new tyre or tube installed.
I have heard that Nitrogen actually helps maintain my motorcycle tyre pressures longer. Is that true?
Yes. A Nitrogen molecule is much bigger than Oxygen. The reason tyres loose pressure is because the oxygen molecules actually seep through the rubber and out into the air. Because Nitrogen molecules are bigger they cannot penetrate the rubber as quickly. On average tyre pressures maintain about 3-4 times longer with Nitrogen the regular air.
