In the last three months, however, I've suffered multiple punctures and all bar one display the same symptoms. The inner tubes have cuts running for two/three inches which, of course, weakens them until they eventually give way. A close inspection of the tyre liners shows that they have a number of splits of a similar length. I have come to the conclusion that the splits in the liners have caused the cuts in the inner tube. This appears to be supported by other reviewers' comments, and not only on this website. Within three days of putting in a new inner tube this week, same problem - no external damage to the tyre - 2-3" cuts on the inner tube - weakened inner tube - puncture!
I don't know why the tyre liners should have split; maybe they degrade over time?
I just wish I could have come to this conclusion some weeks ago; I'd have saved myself a lot of money on replacement inner tubes! The splits were always too long to effect a proper repair.
For weeks now this has been doing my head in; I've been varying the route I take on the daily commute believing I must be cycling over something long and sharp!
So, in conclusion, I shall not be using these tyre liners again and will opt for the Panaracer flataway tyre protection tape.
To start with, getting the liners to fit properly was very difficult and time-consuming. Worse was that, having fitted them to my road bike, I then got 3 punctures within the first week of use. And, since a slight impression of the edge of the liner could be seen on the inner tube, each puncture was undoubtedly CAUSED BY the liners themselves, probably as the tyre flexed going over bumps in the road. Needless to say, the liners were binned - and I've not had a puncture since.
My advice? Save your money - or perhaps spend it on a tyre with a puncture-resistant layer built in.
Haven't had a puncture since fitting them eight months ago - even when pieces of glass have cut through the tyre casing.
Difficult to fit.
They make the tyre heavier, rolling resistance is noticeably worse.
The sales brochure does recommends 700c 28-35 size. Therefore using it on sizes under 28 x 622 could be a whole different dynamic as a strip for 28-35 (intended to protect the rolling surface not the sides) will go most of the way around the inner circumference of any tyre smaller than 25 and the constant flexing of the side walls (and the strip) will cause damage to the tube.

It does seem to be more effective then having none at all, but by no means puncture resistant.Published 9 months ago by s

Not impressed, liner has to sit in precisely the right position or it will eventually rub the inner tube and puncture.Published 17 months ago by C A Waite
Unless you keep your tyres pumped up to the max this will pinch the inner tube and cause a puncture.
Better off buying a puncture proof tyre instead.
