Panaracer Flataway Puncture Proof Strip

(2 reviews)
A puncture-proof tyre liner that's light & supple and it works
700C£12.99In Stock

Flataway is a Kevlar liner that goes between the tyre and tube. (The NYPD's bulletproof vests are Kevlar.) Kevlar actually feels supple and felt-like so, unlike a urethane liner, Flataway doesn't deaden the 'feel' of a quality lightweight tyre. Weight: around 40g per strip. Available in 26" ATB and 700c road sizes.

Used this tape previously on my "old bike" as I suffered three punctures within a fortnight. After fitting the tape, I only had one in several years (>5) and that was because the intrusion was through the unprotected sidewall! Got a new bike and managed to pick up a tack that punctured me. Decided to fit the tape. My tyres are 700 x 45C. No problems with the tape not sticking but probably helped by the fact my tyres are newish and the surface was clean. Only problem I got was that the tape is about 1/2" short---doesn't overlap. The box says it is 2150mm x 30mm. Measuring the backing tape, one length was 2175 and the other was 2184 so that meets the spec. I definitely had to cut the previous tape when I fitted it but it was obviously a different size tyre. Would definitely recommend this tape though and am just hoping any puncture material doesn't find my weak spot.

The sticky backing was very weak and I couldn't fit the strip as it just kept moving about and falling off.
Ask a question
Q. Given that one of your reviews points out that the 700cc strip is half an inch short for his tyres (even though it's slightly longer than advertised), should I order the 700cc strip for my 26 inch tyres to get enough strip to cover the whole tyre? Is it easy to cut if necessary?
A. It would really depend on the size profile of the 700c tyre. I think the previous reviewer was using 700x45c so they are fairly 'big' tyres which is why the tape probably came up slightly short. The 26" sized tape should be fine for most 26" tyres as far as we know however it is easy to cut so you could order the 700c tape if you would feel more comfortable.
Q. Are these a pair of strips (for 2 tyres) or just one?
A. The Panaracer Flataway strips are sold singly. As an alternative we do have in stock Zefal tyre liners which are sold as a pair.
