Description

Air-Liner Tire Insert

Developed in collaboration with Deaneasy, the Vittoria Air-Liner Tire Insert is the ultimate tire accessory for mountain bike tires. This innovative foam-based tubular insert for tubeless tires is a breeze to install, and does its job exceptionally well of protecting the rim, enhancing overall grip, and preventing punctures on some of the roughest and rowdiest trails.

Made from a new-generation polymer, the technical foam Air-Liner allows for lower tire pressures, prevents burping and bead-breaking, and and absorbs high-frequency vibrations for a smoother ride. While this polymer is slightly dense, it more than makes up for extra weight with incredible resistance to rocks and trail debris. Two continuous carvings—one on the top and one on the bottom—run the length of the Air-Liner to make room for the air and sealant within, and to better support the tire. Plus, installation is exceptionally easy thanks to the included zip ties and smooth cut-ability of the foam.

  • Technical foam tire insert for added protection on the trail
  • Made for tubeless and tubeless-ready tires with sealant
  • Air-Liner adds grip, protection, and allows for lower PSI
  • Prevents burping effect and bead breaking
  • Cut edges of the tube according to size of your rim

Better Traction and Rim Protection.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Well worth it!! Running lower pressures allows significantly way more traction. Added benefit is carbon rim protection when I blasting through a chunky-ass rock garden or bike parks.

Extra traction and protection!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've used these with 2.6 inch tires and they have allowed running lower pressures, getting more traction, and preventing rim strikes. The ease of install is much better than the cushcore system, though cushcore does ride great as well.
Only complaint is that I've had issue with the valve getting blocked by the insert and have had to remove the valve core and press the insert out of the way. This happened both to myself and my buddy that has a set. A set of the cushcore valves would fix this.

Gotta Have It

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I just added a hardtail to my MTB quiver, and I have no intention of riding it any softer than I do my full suspension bikes. When rallying hard through rock gardens, or coming off drops / jumps without good landings, you need a little extra piece of mind that you are not about to blow up your $$$ rear wheel. This liner (while admittedly is a pretty expensive pool noodle looking piece of foam) provides that peace of mind, and offers additional damping on the rear tire that air alone can't provide. Should you flat, you can also ride out on this thing and not have to walk home.

200% worth the extra cost for the item, especially if you are pushing the limits of low PSI on a hardtail. You spent a bunch of money on those wheels, you can probably swing another 100 to make sure you don't wreck them.

As Clayton mentioned, not difficult to install. A bit of a bear to get the tire bead seated fully when working around the liner, but by no means a show stopper. Probably took an extra 5-7 minutes vs set up of a normal tubeless tire.

Hi Craig, Can you provide the wieght of these inserts for a 29er in the medium size

Are these sold in pair or individually?

Hey Jeff,



These are sold individually. Please let us know if we can help with anything else!

What size do I need for 28 mm rim width and 2.5" tires?

2.5”... Match the Tire WIDTH you require... They Are "Too Long" (to fit ALL Rim Diameters {622mm 584mm 559mm} WithOUT ridiculous inventory hassles)... be careful not to cut too much off when you insert the foam into tire, and trim the extra (it should fit without a gap and without buckling, slightly too long is better than slightly too short, yet it might not be an issue when you get to 'slightly')... CushCore is much harder to install and remove, yet is noticeably better while Riding, yet AirLiner is definitely Very Good... I am just an Engineer that failed to design something better than these inserts such that I will BUY vs. trying to compete in this niche market...

Perfect

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These tire insert are awesome. They are easy to install unlike a Cush Core and weight a lot less. Perfect for that little extra protection. Well worth it.

Hello Clayton, Would you run these over the huck norris's? Do they offer the same or maybe more protection than the huck norris's?
Are these as protective as the cushcores and if not, are they alot less protective?
Thank you and happy trails,
Kelly
