When you're riding your next 'cross race, the last thing you want to do is hop back on your bike after charging up a flight of slick stairs to discover you have a flat. We can't promise that Continental's Cross Tube is indestructible, but we can promise its seamless butyl construction is better insurance against flats than your basic bulk pack of tubes. This tube fits 700c tires and comes with a 42mm threaded Presta valve, and its butyl construction helps it stay more airtight than tubes made out of latex, so you won't have to reach for your pump every morning before taking it out on a ride.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Tubes are no fun to deal with. If you're rocking wider gravel/cross tires you should definitely go with these beefier tubes to hopefully mitigate future flats and not have to deal with tubes again for a while.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Stop using small diameter tubes if you are running gravel grinder width tires-38 to 40mm. Getting proper fitting tubes will decrease your chances for flats.
Do these valves have a removable core?
