    Two tubes, two failures

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Perhaps these tubes are not intended for heavier riders. I am 201 pounds and within 12 kilometers of use one tube failed to hold air any longer and the other had a complete blowout.

    No more generic crap

      Will never walk into LBS again to buy inner tubes, those generic stuff just won't last and I'm a light guy. Got 4 of these bad boys to do a complete swap and spares. Paired it with a set of Vredestein Comp Race, rode ~75 mi and been very happy with the set.

      Exploded

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      Might just be that one off manufacture defect, but brand new with new tires, it exploded at 100psi. Shredded along the seam. Probably best to buy stuff like this at your LBS if you can so you can skip the ear ringing and salty dogs.

      great back up tube

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      bought as a back up tube, but ive been running with one for a few months now. holds the air great, and have not had any issues with them. I also carry one as a back up, and it takes up no room, and is super light, i cant even tell its in there.

      Great News!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Note: These tubes feature removable valve cores. Great for adding slime or stem extensions.

      On some websites cyclists are complaining that when using a screw on pump the removable valve core shoots off the stem when they unscrew the pump. That's because when installing the tube (fresh out of the box) the removable core is factory installed only finger tight. You will need a 4.5 mm metric wrench (or presta valve core tool) to tighten the core for the first time. This will allow for your plastic valve cap, or your screw on pump to be taken off your stem without the core flying off.

      NOTE: When tightening the core in the stem, hold the stem firmly and be careful not to twist or damage the stem base connection to the tube.

      Ride Safe . . Have Fun

      Mmmmm, Bit disappointed

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      The tubes run well in the tire, but I have to admit, that they have been a little fragile when changing them out. Ive ripped a couple when doing so, and that very well might be how Im changing the tubes out, but I have never had that problem before and Ive change many tubes BUT.... they do run well for a clincher wheel

      For what it's worth, I've had exactly the same experience when installing these tubes (especially with new tires). While I'm 100% willing to believe it's my error, it's not something that has ever happened to me with other tubes. They do pack well, but I've switched to other tubes as a rip during installation is not something I'd like by the side of the road.

      Great tubes

        These are a bit lighter than some other brands, though probably not by a huge margin. They do have removable valve cores, which is not that common. You can use a sealant like Stans in tubes too. Your tire may still flat, but you might only have to re-inflate rather than replace the tube. I have also bent the little core stem on other tubes and had to replace the whole tube. Could have just replace the core on these. I find they hold pressure pretty well, maybe a loss of 10psi or so over a few days. You should check your tire pressure before every ride anyway.

        Do these tubes have a removable valve...

        Do these tubes have a removable valve core?
