If there is a draw back to Pit Stop
it is that the propellant and compressed gas is propane
making it extremely flammable. You can not put Vittoria
Pit Stop in any baggage taken onto an aircraft. It is
both pressurized and explosive. Pit Stop is safe to
carry on a bike but should never be exposed to excessive
heat and the canister should never be punctured.
It’s possible that Vittoria Pit Stop may replace
the kit of equipment cyclists traditionally carry with
them to fix a flat. No flat remedy is 100% effective
except replacing a punctured tire or inner tube with
a new one, but Vittoria Pit Stop is nearly as effective
and much faster, more convenient and even less expensive.
One canister of Vittoria Pit Stop, enough for one flat
tire, costs around $10.
While there may still be situations where Vittoria
Pit Stop may not repair a flat tire 100%, such as a
very large puncture or tear, it is reliable enough to
use as a stand-alone emergency flat repair system. Perhaps
more importantly, if you aren’t comfortable with
removing bike wheels on the road and replacing an inner
tube or tubular tire, Vittoria Pit Stop is the answer
