    dont let "race" scare you off

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    i bought these because they were on sale but was a little hesitant thinking that they would be thin and not as protective but they have held up very well through spring riding.

    Great tubes for any use.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I use these tubes whether I'm racing or riding with my friends. I've used continental's tubes since I've been riding on the road and they have proved durable in any road or weather conditions. I will continue to buy these tubes.

    These Tubes are Garbage

      Sorry, nothing good to say about these Continental tubes, I recently purchased 3. The first two both held air until the stress of riding, the first went flat after 15 miles, the second went flat after 8 miles. Both developed holes on a seam opposite the valve. Not even going to try using the third one.

      Light and solid

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I have been using these tubes since I started commuting daily, and I am very happy with how well they work. The stem is very sturdy and does not torque and break under pressure like cheaper tubes, and the powder coating ensures that you are experiencing minimal tubular resistance due to the tube getting stuck.

      Best tube for road use

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This is absolutely the best tube for lightweight clinchers if you want to keep weight down. I've been using for a couple of years and had no manufacturing flaws. It's thinner than most so you get a little air seepage, but you should pump up before each ride anyway.

      Awesome

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Note: These tubes feature removable valve cores.

      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

      "Tube Steak"

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This is a great tube

      1st. it is a 20-25mm size so it will work for 23 & 25mm tires.

      2nd. It's a standard weight tube, durable and ideal for training rides.

      3rd. The best reason for my purchase, It has a removable valve core, a necessity for the new improved stem extenders (see ENVE brand) available on this website.

      4th. Now instead of buying tubes with 80mm. stems (@ $10.99 ea.) to fit my 60mm carbon wheel set. I can buy this tube with a 42mm stem at $6.00 ea.



      Quality Tube, Fair Price

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Use it mostly for training as a high quality, but less expensive option from conti. I really see no need to spend more on a lighter tube. Save the extra bucks for your pre-ride coffee, this is all you need.

      where are these tubes made?

      where are these tubes made?

      John,



      Most of the tubes made are manufactured in China, Malaysia, Indonesia, Taiwan, and various other places. They are good tubes and I have never had a problem with them, if you need any more help or you have any other questions about anything else you can contact me directly at ececala@backcountry.com



      Thanks,

      Enrico

      The ones I have of this specific model are made in China and were ordered last year. This is a higher quality tube than most regardless of the country of origin. I feel this is a better tube for the money than Maxxis, Kenda, Giant, Bontrager or Specialized at this price point. Good seams and very consistent fitment, plus a very good valve.
