    Works butylfully.

    The Continental Race Light Tube is the company’s lightest non-latex offering, making it ideal for those of us who compete in longer races, or who would rather not pump up our tires every few days. If you’re running high-end race tires on lightweight wheels, the Continental Race Light Tube completes the trifecta.

    These might make good balloon animals!

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

    I haven't had a flat tire on my road bike in the past 1000 miles or so, but I thought to myself, I'd better buy a couple of tubes just in case. What do you know! Two days after I got these in from Backcountry I caught a flat 9 miles into a ride. Good thing I bought two of these Continental Race Light Tubes! Right? Nope! I replaced my flat with and brand new Continental tube, that immediately went flat! Okay, maybe it was just user error. Maybe I pinched it flat when popping the bead back on the rim. On to tube number two! Pop it in the tire, air it up, and ride 46 mores miles with no problems...until the very next morning when I'm greeted by another flat. That's two Continental Race Light Tubes in 24 hours, and 46 miles.
    These things are absolute trash! You'd be better off untying balloon animals and stuffing those in your wheels than using these.
    I am riding in Arizona and the roads do come with a bit a debris from time to time, but two tubes in 24 hours!?!? I won't be buying Conti's again. Ever.

    Perfect tube to carry during races

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I carry this tube mainly for my long distance triathlon races and while haven't actually had to use it yet, it is a great lightweight option for when things turn for the worse. Replaceable valve also allows for easy addition of extenders.

    long lasting tube

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I'm not a pro. I followed someone's instructions on youtube and put baby powder on the tube before I install it. These are in my road bike's wheel set and I have rode them for 1800 miles. Durability seems pretty solid. 42mm is too short for 30mm section wheels, better choice is 60mm.

    pretty good

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I ran these on my fixed gear for a while and was happy with them. I'm pretty hard on tires and recommend thicker tube if you are too. These are very light weight and perfect for racers wanting to shed weight.

    So much air

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Great tubes. Just your standard. Even if you 28mm wide tires you can still run these tubes. They will stretch just fine. Even though it say 18-25mm. I've been running these on 28mm wide tires for years.

    Tubes...

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I love these Conti tubes, and have used them for many years. I use them with my carbon clincher wheels and matched with Vittoria tires.
    They are light and they work, enough said.

    Perfect

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These are in the wheels and in the spare kit. Light yet solid enough to be my go-to tube, and they fold down tight enough to fit a flat kit into the storage box on a Felt IA.

    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.

      Two in my tires, two in my bag

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have these in my tires and in my saddle bag. Occasionally I'll go to a superlight tube, but always seem to come back to the standard.

      Light weight with no fuss

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I've been running the race lights for the last two seasons and absolutely love them. This first thing I make sure is stocked in my saddle bag, and they pack really efficiently for those who like to use a smaller bag.

      Unanswered Question

      Is there any special continental tube that should be use with GatorSheld 700x 28C?
