PINK ON THE INSIDE
5 5

Ok so, I did much reading regarding the benefits of latex with added watts and better roll resistance. With all the Voodoo in this industry, I'm always a bit skeptical with product claims but, I'm happy to report that latex is the way to go. Ride quality is noticeably more supple and I had a slight increase in my avg speed on my first ride. I've used Conti GP 4000s for years and I paired these tubes with Vittoria Corsa G+ if for no other reason than I wanted to break out of the box and make a change.
On the downside: I envisioned Vittoria tubes/tires, an age old Italian company, to be made by loving hands in a moderately sized factory next to a pastry shop somewhere in Milan but, to my disappointment is stamped on the bottom of the packaging, "Made In Thailand." My fantasy got its ass smacked. Oh well! Despite this quality control isn't sacrificed. Also, latex tubes come standard with a 51 mm stem. Why? Variable lengths would make life simpler. Are you listening, Vittoria?

Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is so easy to use that I'm surprised Lezyne doesn't supply this chuck with their floor pumps exclusively. Much easier than the 'screw type' chuck and it won't slip off. I use this with my Alloy Drive Floor Pump.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

It's a thing of beauty and durable. Cast aluminum base with a CNC machined barrel that is SOLID! This pump is one of those items that you don't know whether to display on a mantle shelf or use it....and it effectively does what it's supposed to do. Large accurate gauge and good build quality. I bought the polished aluminum version because I prefer blonds. Absolutely no cons.
