Insert for tubeless road tires
- Run-flat capability
- Tubeless bead lock protection
- Retains supple tire feel
Air-Liner Road is the re-usable insert designed to enhance and optimize the performance and safety of tubeless-ready road bicycle tires. Air-Liner Road increases the safety of tubeless-ready tires by locking the bead of the tire into the rim, reducing the likelihood of burping at the bead. It also cushions the tire and wheel from impacts, while providing an additional tubeless set-up seal.
Air-Liner Road completes the Vittoria tire insert range across mountain bike, gravel and now road categories. Unlike the mountain bike and the gravel version, Air-Liner Road uses a complete hoop as well as a hexagonal cross-section shape both of which are designed to lock into a 700c road wheel and provide a very positive bead lock on tubeless tires.
The foam of Air-Liner Road is soft and is designed to collapse inside the pressure of a road tire. That allows for the expansion of the foam in the event of a flat tire. In fact, the foam fills the volume inside the tire and allow for a run-flat solution to get you home. In addition, Air-Liner Road allows running lower air pressure, as it provides additional protection and enhances the seal of the tire. The insert increases riding comfort without negatively impacting rolling resistance.
Made specifically for tubeless tire applications, the Vittoria Air-Liner Road system is compatible with all tubeless road tires on the market, and will offer the same benefits regardless of brand. The lightweight material absorbs no sealant, ensuring that punctures are sealed as normal, and extending the useful life of the insert. The proprietary Vittoria tubeless Multiway Valve uses multiple large holes within the tire chamber, eliminating valve clogging, and providing ease of use while adjusting air-pressure.
