VITTORIA AIR LINER
Vittoria presents Air-Liner, the ultimate tyre accessory for mountain bike tyres. Air-Liner is a foam-based tubular insert for tubeless tires designed to protect the rim, enhance grip and prevent punctures.
Air-Liner is developed by Vittoria in collaboration with Deaneasy, and it is made in Italy. This technical foam is made up by a new-generation polymer, and the entire tube comes through coring process. Differently from printing and extrusion – cheaper production processes used for equivalent products available in the market – coring does not alter the chemical structure of the polymer. As a matter of fact, the added value of Air-Liner lays in its high-quality production process.
Air-Liner is designed considering all the demands of each mountain bike discipline:
Size S – Cross-Country / Marathon – from 1.9” to 2.2”
Size M – All Mountain / Enduro – from 2.25” to 2.5”
Size L – Enduro / Plus – from 2.5” to 2.7”
Size XL – Plus / Fat – from 2.7” to 4.0”
Air-Liner can be used on both standard wheels and tubeless-ready wheels, with both tubeless and tubeless-ready tires, and with any type of sealant – preferably without ammonia. In addition, it fits any type of valve for tubeless.
Air-Liner advantages are countless:
More grip, in both climbing and descent
Enhanced rim protection
Allows for lower tire pressures
Prevents burping effect
Prevents bead breaking
Absorbs high-frequence vibrations. Comfort increased.
Allows for tires with lighter casing
Although Air-Liner polymer is slightly dense, it is very resistant. This particular structure provides the insert with light weight without compromising on resistance and duration: Air-Liner weight goes from 160 g to 220 g according to the size, and the product life cycle is 2,000 hours in normal conditions or one-hour runflat – calculation based on a rider of 80 kg of weight.
Air Liners are sold individually
