Latex Tubes

5

I was a little skeptical at first to try these tubes. After my first ride on them I am impressed by the decreased rolling resistance, the more supple ride, and the increased grip, and reactivity of my tyres. Now I am really impressed by these tubes. They work well for me.

Latex???

4

Pros These tubes are great when you get a flat they go down very slowly and lots of time to stop. I got a puncher in one tube butyl and was flat in seconds by the time I had changed the tube I noticed the other tube also had a flat but still had air in it (latex). Both holes where snake bits and at the same time. Can be reparied the same as normal tubes Light and ride well Cons These tubes leak air so I have to pump them up every 3 or 4 day to maintain pressure. If you have a hole in the side of your tyre a normal tube will hold latex will not. They easly pop out and burst. Larger and more snake like. Hard to squash down and get two in the saddle bag.

Innishmere

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.

AMAZING FEEL

5

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.

great tubes!!!

5

I live in CO where we have goathead thorns. The first ride out I flatted both tires using racing butyl tubes. I switched to these Michelin latex tubes and did not have any other flats the whole year after about 1,000 miles. Some complain about the loss of air overnight but I let some air out after each ride to reduce the pressure on the tire and pump back up before each ride. I use Conti 4000s tires. I do group fun rides, group training rides, racing (TT, crit, & road), and go indoors on rollers and a trainer. So far these are great!

Much better than expected

5

I wasn't expecting much, but after riding several miles, the increase in comfort was very apparent. It made my Caad10 (aluminum) road bike very comfortable on long rides. Any more plush, and I would be falling asleep :-)

Very comfortable

5

I bought only one tube to test on my front wheel to see if it really made any sort of difference in comfort. After riding just a few blocks, I noticed something, and after 40 miles, the difference in comfort was significant.

Smooth ride.

5

I purchased this product and now have it on my bike. The ride does feel much more smoother. I've only taken this to a 60 mile ride and so far have not flatted. It does however lose air about 10 to 15 psi overnight. Overall I now prefer this over butyl.

Great ride quality

5

Outstanding ride quality when paired with a supple tire like a Michelin Pro. I've also had zero flats since switching out to latex tubes, where usually I get two or three flats per year. Worth every penny.

Latex inner tube review

4

I found these latex inner tubes easy to install and pump up, compared to the standard inner tubes.The ride is very comfortable smooth and fast. The only down side is the loss of air over night. I would recommend these inner tubes.
