Latex....What a great ride!

4

So far so good. I air up the tires before every ride, so air migration is no issue. Love the supple feel latex gives to Conti Grand Prix 4000s II's. Lower rolling resistance with an already a fast tire........Good Combination.

Because of he reviews on latex tubes I bought them with Michelin Pro4 Endurance V2 tires. Since I changed tires and tubes I'm not sure which products get the kudos. The ride is very nice and fast. Cons: because they are very soft; it helps to give them a little air when installing and the generous use of talc. They do lose air faster than butyl tubes. I check and air up daily. Butyl lost about 15-20 PSI and the latex 30-35 PSI. This can be seen as a plus because it would encourage checking tire pressure often. As one of the other reviewers posted I carry a butyl spare.

great tubes

Excellent tubes- really an upgrade to your ride quality, even if they do lose pressure more quickly.

Great so far

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.

Good tubes

4

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.

Nice Tubes

4

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.

Excellent 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.

Great if......

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
