worked for a while

They appear to have worked great for a while.I live in new mexico and deal with goatheads. They have helped greatly with that problem. The issue is that the liner appears to have dryrotted in the tire. It has a zig zag crack down the middle which after being compressed for a long time has a sharp and hard edge. This appears to have begun causing flats. The tubes cannot hold up to the sharp edge of the rotted liner.

They worked great for a while but a little pricey and if the ruin a good tire, can't remove the liner after it rots, they are not worth the money.

Won't ride without them.

Used to get periodic flats, always at the worse time. Put these in the tires of my touring bike and my road bike. Have gone hundreds of miles, without a single flat.

Gotta Have it.

I bought this product for my back tire because I kept getting a flat but did not get for my front tire until now. I also got new tires that have some Kevlar protection but wanted to make sure by getting the liner for the front as well. I feel more confident that I will reduce the amount of inner tubes I need to purchase for my bike. Have not gotten for my mountain bike but will be considering as a future purchase.

Jury is out....

I'm got a pair of these and am going to give them a try. However I can tell you that if (out of the tire), you stick them with a nail or the point of a knife, it goes right through. The knife will only stick a little way through but plenty to puncture a tube. A pin won't even slow down as it passes through. By comparison I also got some slime liners and puncturing those suckers is brutal. The plastic will deform arount the point of a nail but not let it through. I am not going to use those, however, as there are just too many comments about the liner itself cutting the tube to ignore. The above does not inspire confidence but I will put them to the test. After riding these for a while I will repost.

The best combination of flat protection and light weight I've found.

I use the Panaracer tire liners in all my training tires. They add very little weight, and they don't stiffen the flex of high performance tires. In New Mexico it's critical to have protection from the ever-present goatheads. These liners will not deflect every thorn, but they prevent most flats while retaining the handling characteristics of high performance tires.

2300 miles and still rolling

I too was looking for a impenetrable solution for my tires. I read about this product and was not disappointed. I trained with the liners all this winter with some serious damage to the rubber. But most importantly no flats.

now if that was not enough... i also rolled in the Paris roubax challenge and tour of Flanders sportif. 19 sections of cobbles was not and issue.

I and still rolling strong and its mid june.

This is now a mandatory addition to my build.

Great price. Great purchase.

I could not understand why I kept on getting flats. Ride after ride, tube after tube, patch after patch. Until I got ahold of this precious lil' wonder. Haven't had a flat since!

Invisible Armor

They weigh almost nothing but they ended all flats cold, on my Vittoria Open Corsa Evo CX tires. Combined with Latex tubes, you'll never notice they are even inside your tire...the rolling resistance and smoothness is not compromised one bit. I had a small finishing nail puncture the tire - but make a u-turn out the same side! Now, that's bulletproof...

Looks like felt and feels like felt, but hell if I could poke a hole in it!

I hate changing flats while on a ride, so I try to make my tires as bullet proof as possible. For my new bike, I bought Vredestein fortezza TriComps tires and lined them with the Flat Away kevlar liners. Before I placed the liners in the tires I tried to poke a hole in one with a sharp knife, I could not get the tip of the knife trough the liner. For only an extra 25 grams per liner, I can't think of a better liner to use. No flats yet. TriComps and these liner may not be quite as bullet proof as Armadillo Tires, but they are close as roll a lot faster!
