No complains, working well after a few thousand miles. At a price barely higher than butyl tubes, I don't see a reason to not use these for daily riding. I still carry a butyl tube for a spare on rides as they are a little easier to mount. Mounting is not very difficult if there is a sufficient amount of talc/baby powder on the tube to allow it to move more freely. Some people may have to add additional rim tape when switching to latex. I did not find this to be an issue.
Latex generally are tricky to install, easy to damage while installing or removing a tire, and cannot be repaired quickly. But the advantages are considerable. Less rolling resistance (3-5 watts, supposedly), difficult to puncture, and when it does puncture the leak is very slow. I use latex all the time--these and Vittorias. My only gripe about these tubes is the fact that the valve core isn't removable. The Vittoria latex valve core can be removed, however.
These are great tubes for performance minded riders. They are light and shown to decrease rolling resistance but don't hold air as well and rubber tubes.
Love these with vittoria and veloflex tires. Roll beautifully. Latex tubes lose pressure faster than butyl so need to be inflated more frequently. No big deal. Just something to know.
Just a nice, high quality product from a respected manufacturer for a decent price. Hard to complain.
These really do have a fantastic feel IF you use them on a high end, supple and light tire. I am using them on Michelin Pro 4s and I can feel a difference. I would not spend the extra on my commuter bike
These are nice tubes. Light and supple, they pair well with the Vittoria Open Corsa CX tires I picked up here. What else can I say; They are tubes and hold air well. Don't bleed off air too fast or too much when they sit.
Occasionally I buy latex tubes, but they are more expensive, but they do ride smoother and the bike handles better. These tubes are high quality and I expect lots of miles on them
Great tubes. Lighter better ride and in my experience more durable than butyl tubes. More expensive but worth it.
After reading about latex tubes and the more comfortable ride they promise, I purchased these Michelin latex tubes from PBK. I am a convert. Aside from the need to inflate the tires with each ride, they deliver a more compliant ride at the same pressure as a butyle tube. I use these tubes with conti 4000s clinchers on Reynolds carbon wheels. PBK has great pricing and the Michelin latex tubes are high quality.
I have found that a combination of good latex tubes, 25mm tires, slightly lower pressure (90-95 psi) and talcing the inside of the tires, is, knock on wood, the answer to pinch flats. From 2 or 3 pinch flats a year on normal paved roads, to zero in the past 18 months, and riding more and more on dirt roads, i haven't suffered a single flat. More than 3000 miles; the slight inconvenience of adding air daily is nothing compared to changing tires at the side of the road on a cold rainy day. These tubes have worked perfectly. You do have to be careful of any roughness around the valve stem hole in your rims, as I have noted signs of wear here.
A smooth and sublime ride. These inner tubes provide a supremely soft road feel and brilliant puncture resistance. A bit quick on air loss, but check your tires every day and, no worries. Fine feel and good performance at an unbeatable price.
I've been riding butyl tubes for years! And I finally tried these latex tubes (as per my coach) and they were amazing! The ride feel is much smoother and there is definitely less rolling resistance. The only downside was that these are more difficult to install than butyl tubes because they can flop around a bit - it wasn't an issue when I installed but if you are changing a flat during a race, I would stick with butyl.
