Tyre tipping gets a makeover with Escape’s TiyR

Escape has launched its new TiyR product, available from January 2014. Developed around the idea of flipping tyres for fitness, the TiyR is soft but heavy and has handles to add lift exercises. It has a small diameter but is still challenging to lift at 40kg, 60kg or 80kg and lands flat when pushed over for added safety. The TiyR is made from layers of polymer foam and steel shot to ensure the weight is evenly distributed. The centre and all the internal edges are smooth so it provides a safe platform to jump on, off and into.
