Tubeless tires have been a part of the cycling industry for over a decade. While they have been used primarily in the off-road market the application to drop-bar bikes is beginning to come around as gravel and adventure riding become more mainstream. Vittoria is pushing the market with a road specific tubeless liner designed for 25-30mm tires. The inserts will allow riders to utilize lower pressure on the road to increase compliance and add the ability to run a flat tire for up to 30 miles in the worst case scenario. Check out what we had to say about the recent gravel version.
