The Flataway tire liner is a lightweight strip of Aramid fiber that protects against external punctures. It is excellent for touring or urban applications. Place it between your casing and your tube and ride with more security.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bullit Never had a flat since.
I ride 50km a day on the cycle paths covered in broken glass. Never had a flat since. Lighter than thorn resistant tubes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gwala They works. You cannot transfer from a tire to another.
I was used to got flat a lot. Then I used these for 3000 Km. I think I never had a puncture. Be aware, you can hardly transfer them from a tire to another (you can try, but probably you will snatch them because of the glue-film they have). I will buy these again. I give 4 stars. If price was lower I would give 5.

Rated 5 out of 5 Excellent bit of kit
I've been using these liners for a number of years now and just bought a new set (two liners) for my new dry season tyres. I ride over seriously rough, flint and thorn covered trails on South Downs and technical trails around North Downs. ONE PUNCTURE IN THE PAST TWO YEARS. Before I fitted these liners I was getting punctures every couple of weeks. Ignore other reviewer's who say "these liners don't work". Bottom line is, they add insignificant weight - an empty bottle of water weighs more :), but they add considerable protection. Very easy to fit. Fitting advice: make sure the inside of the tyre is clean, dry and grit free; take your time; peel the backing paper off as you go, centre the liner and only stick the liner a bit at a time to make sure you keep it centred; don't overlap when you reach the other end; and make a clean cut (blunt scissors wont cut the liner so use a decent scalpel or sharp blade). Easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Worth the Money, Easy to install
I Have used this one two bikes, a 29er & a 26 Inch. Had them in since November & I am still yet to have a P##ncture. The only downside to this is that if you replace/blow a tyre is isn't removable. but for under £10.00, I mean I'm sure people have paid that for a Taxi home after getting a flat!
I am going to purchase some more for my DH Bike.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous not fit for use
I fitted them because I was getting punctures from thorns. I was actually getting more punctures whilst having them fitted because the thorns were hiding in the strips. when on the road/trail side fixing punctures it was hard to feel the thorns as they seemed to hide in the fabric. I have since removed and thrown them out.

Купил эту ленту осенью,покатался 4 месяца,лента вся рваная внутри колеса,как решето.Пока она была новая,то немного спасала от проколов,сейчас толку от неё никакого.Лучше покупайте хорошие антипрокольные покрышки!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous For £10 I assumed it would do 2 tyres i was wrong. It seems to have worked on a panaracer front fire mtb tyre that was sufferring ongoing thorn punctures but £10/tyre is way to expensive compared to Dr Sludge liquid.
