This Victoria Airliner is one of the best things I've ever bought for my bike. I'm using the inserts since August 2022. I admit, it was a little chore to install it. But once I had it all together, and put the sealant in it was all smooth sailing after that. I still ride 200 miles a week and since I put the inserts in, I didn't get a puncture. I lowered the tire pressure by 5 pounds per wheel. I was afraid that the performance of the bike will decline. But I was wrong. The ride is now nice and smooth. I am an older rider. That's why I'm looking for a comfortable ride. I would recommend this Victoria Airliner to everybody, especially to older riders.
I bought a pair of these for a 24hr time trial. Used with 700x25 Conti GP5000s the ride was noticeably cushier and seemed to have less rolling resistance.
Won the race and set a course record. Guess they worked
I bought these instead of the Rubino Pros I wouldï¿½ve normally chosen because money was tight. Although, as I expected, the Rubinos still feel a little faster, I was pleasantly surprised by the excellent feel and responsiveness of these tires. The rolling resistance seems very low and the tires feel secure and reliable on the road. They take a higher pressure than any tire Iï¿½ve used previously, but I donï¿½t mind it. I am eager to see how the graphene affects longevity; my previous Vittoria tires were pre-graphene and I was quite happy even with those. Eagerly recommended for training.
Overall I really like the air-liner on my road bike. on the road bike it is primarily for safety so that if a tire tears and the sealant can't fix it, I don't get stuck or lose control (hopefully). These were really challenging to put on. Don't bother taking a spare inner tube because you won't get the tire off in a reasonable way without the included tool. they only add a few grams of weight but are worth the extra $ and grams because of the margin of safety they add.
