Why We Like The Air-Liner Road Tire Insert

Flats are no fun, period. Vittoria has a solution with the Air-Liner Road Tire Insert. This reusable insert enhances the performance of tubeless road tires by locking the bead of the tire to the rim, reducing the likelihood of burping at the bead— all the while cushioning from impacts.

  • A light and durable insert for preventing flats
  • Sits against the bead to prevent burping your tire
  • Provides cushion to prevent pinches from impacts
  • Hexagonal shape helps keep the insert locked in place

Can’t install, needs special valve

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The other reviews are spot on… nearly impossible to install with the airliner in place. I say nearly, because with great determination and after breaking a tire mounting tool, I finally got the tire on the rim with this thing in place. That’s when I discovered the reason they supply a (special) replacement stem, since the air liner will block the air inlet on a normal tubeless stem. Air can get in, but good luck injecting your sealant. That’s when I then discovered that i could not DISMOUNT my tire, as I couldn’t get the tire tool under the bead. Well that sucks. Interesting concept, got it for the safety aspect, but the execution is unacceptable.

Great concept but impossible to use

Planned to change from tubes to tubeless. Having never used tubeless i wanted a backup system for a catastrophic failure. This seemed like a great idea. Spent nearly 2 hours with a friend trying to mount my tire with the air liner. It is absolutely impossible to get the tire over the rim with the air liner installed. The vittoria video instructions make it look so easy. Dont be fooled it is impossible. Its like trying to install a tire with a fully inflated tube. Good luck with that. Will call tomorrow to return it and the vittoria tool that is made for this. That too doesn’t work. If you’re going tubeless stay away from this. Great idea if one can actually get it installed. I could not.

Purchased the road liner and was excited to use on my 62mm front wheel. Unfortunately, the special valve stems supplied (side port opening to let sealant enter tire around the liner) don't have enough thread length to put on a threaded valve extender & the stem nut. Vittoria shows longer stems on their U.S. website but are not available to order. A deeper rim should allow a valve extender to be used without the threading issue.
