These are fine tubes. I've been riding latex exclusively for 10 years, and these for about 5. They have lower rolling resistance than butyl, and things like goathead thorns, staples, tacks, wires, etc will usually not penetrate. Stop and pull out the object and keep riding. Much more difficult to pinch flat also. Put enough air in them to give them shape. Powder the tube and inside of tire with talc. Check to make sure tube is fully inserted in the tire. Else the tube will get pinched and eventually push the bead off (boom!), possibly at a very bad time! Also make sure the stem is pulled out and the base of the stem is tight against the tire before inflating, else the base of the stem will eventually distort and fail. They lose pressure at ~1%/hr rate. Typical of latex.
The Good: hands down faster than butyl. Love them paired with Vittoria open corsas. The bad: a bit finnicky to install. Also needs to be pumped daily as the are prone to lose pressure but i rally dont mind that. The ugly: they look like intestines . I only wish they were sized to accommodate both 23-25 tyres instead of one size for 23 and another for 25
Nice tubes, but 2 out 3 failed at the base of the stems. Repair nicely and easily with with cut piece of latex tube, but they will eventually fail at the stems. Hate tossing a nice latex tube in the trash because they can't glue the stems in securely. Going michelin
I've tried two or three of these latex tubes before, and I generally like them. I had one blow up in my wheel while I was pumping it up, leading me to be much more careful when installing them to make sure they're evenly distributed, not twisted or kinked, or anything else like that. In fact, when I install a latex tube after that one incident I'll pump it up to maybe half the normal pressure, then let the air out again, and then pump it up to full. This gives it a chance to redistribute itself more evenly around the wheel so that when I pump it up it's not overly stressed in one part. What I really liked about the latex tubes is how they felt. The traditional black rubber that tubes are made from seems to absorb more energy as it deforms where the contact patch is of the tire on the road. The latex tube seems not to absorb as much energy. It seems closer to an ideal elastic than the traditional butyl rubber compounds. The only way I can describe how this feels is "lighter" in rolling. Not sure if I described this well, but that's how they feel to me. I'd use them again. I do think the latex tubes seem to age worse than the normal tubes. Leave a latex tube out in the garage for a few months and you can definitely see it. If you go through tubes fairly often I'm not sure if this has to be much of a factor though.
I like latex inner tubes in general, and these Vitoria latex inner tubes are a much appreciated compliment to my current wheels. I like the fact that the Vittoria product comes in two sizes - I use the larger size in the rear tire, and the smaller size in the front tire. I also appreciate the reddish color, as it makes it easy to see if a cut has gone through the casing. The 51mm valves are just long enough for my wheels and pump head.
I changed to these tubes when i installed my Ultegra Wheelset. Definitely rides better with the same Michelin Pro4 Endurance 25mm - feels like there is 15psi less in tires at same pressure 75-80psi No problems mounting, just used instructions off Velo News Feels faster, but also changed wheelset at same time.
The Vittoria latex inner tubes provide a supple, smooth and comfortable ride. Latex inner tubes are worth the price as they have a greater degree of puncture resistance. I highly recommend these inner tubes to anyone who prices performance over saving a few quid.
