Title: MOUNTED ASSEMBLY FOR BICYCLE
Abstract:
The invention concerns a mounted assembly (1) for a two-wheeled vehicle, comprising a non-pneumatic tyre (2) mounted on a rim (3) and a wire clamping insert (5) applied to the entire radially inner circumference of the closed toroidal cavity (4) of the non-pneumatic tyre (2). The clamping insert (5) comprises clamping means (6) applying a prestressing force that clamps the radially inner portion (22) of the non-pneumatic tyre (2) onto the rim (3) by compression. The aim of the invention is to facilitate the mounting and clamping of the non-pneumatic tyre onto the rim and to offer flexibility in terms of mounting the tyre. According to the invention, the non-pneumatic tyre (2) comprises at least one circumferential discontinuity (7) passing through same, the radially inner portion (22) of the non-pneumatic tyre (2) comprises two deformable beads (23) that adapt geometrically to the rim (3) under the action of the clamping by compression, and the clamping insert (5) passes radially inwardly, in succession, through the radially inner portion (22) of the non-pneumatic tyre (2) and a hole in the rim, such that the clamping means (6) are positioned radially inside the rim (3).
