Air-Liner Road: The only insert for tubeless road tyres that takes you home
As road bikes continue to evolve, performance limits are pushed to new levels. Advancements in wheel, tyres, and brake systems mean that riders are going harder than ever before and expecting more from their equipment. The Vittoria Air-Liner Road is an integral part of this equation, providing increased safety to your tubeless set-up, unmatched bump compliance and impact protection while ensuring bead lock at lower pressures. In the event of air-loss, the Vittoria Air-Liner Road system is designed for run-flat use, to get you back home.
How it works
The Air-Liner Road is the re-usable insert designed to enhance and optimize the performance and safety of tubeless-ready road bicycle tyres. The Vittoria Air-Liner Road increases the safety of tubeless-ready tyres by locking the bead of the tyre into the rim, reducing the likelihood of burping at the bead. It also cushions the tyre and wheel from impacts, while providing an additional tubeless set-up seal.
Air-Liner Road completes the Vittoria tyre 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 tyre. The insert increases riding comfort without negatively impacting rolling resistance.
Made specifically for tubeless tyre applications, the Vittoria Air-Liner Road system is compatible with all tubeless road tyres 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 tyre chamber, eliminating valve clogging, and providing ease of use while adjusting air-pressure.

The invisible protector of the peloton
Air-Liner Road has been developed with the collaboration of EF Education-NIPPO riders and mechanics. Tested on World Tour courses, especially on the cobble-stone roads of the Northern Classics, Air-Liner road has quickly become the invisible protector of the peloton, collecting many other victories around the world.
Whether you are training, touring, exploring, or racing, the Vittoria Air-Liner Road system will provide peace of mind and protection.
