Smooth riding inner tubes
If you buy ' GOOD ' clinchers & want a smooth, fast ride look no further. Yes they're a bit more expensive than butyl tubes, yes you need to be careful when fitting ( cover the tube in talc is a smart move ), & yes you'll need to pump them up before every ride. But if you can put up with that faff, & find the rite tyre pressure for yourself, you'll have a much smoother enjoyable ride.
Really good value product, noticeably improves rolling resistance. No issues with punctures (so far), you do have to check the tyre pressures each day as they do seem to lose pressure slowly. Added bonus with them being green/blue it is easier to ensure you don't nip them when changing tubes! recommend this product.
Been using these for years, they give a more comfortable ride, and no more likely to puncture than butyl tubes. If you do puncture and temporarily replace with a butyl tube you can instantly feel the difference in ride quality. Yes, they need to be pumped up more often, but still well worth it. They are supposed to be faster as well- I need every help I can get so stick with these ! At the time of purchase probikekit had the best price and excellent fast delivery, so top marks to probikekit as well.
Be carefull with installation
These tubes don't seem to be as elastic as their black-butyl counterparts. Initially when uninflated they are larger so extra care has to be taken when installing them. I've managed to puncture the first one because I apparently somehow managed to squeeze it between tyre and rim even though I was extremely cautious. The best way to install it is to slightly inflate it and then go around the rim on both sides using your hands to displace tyre so you can see between rim and tyre that there is no tube in between. If everything's fine, inflate afterwards. Apart from that installation and regular inflation annoyance they feel softer at same pressure as butyl tubes. And they also seem to offer more comfortable ride on uneven surface. But this is all very subjective.
Latex really does feel good. You will notice the difference but just take care putting it on as it can easily get trapped "unnoticeably" between rim and tyre bead.... bang!
These ride nicely, softer feel than butyl, lighter, more comfortable and probably roll better- save you a couple of watts. They may be less puncture prone- I've done about 1000 miles with no punctures but I tend not to get many anyway. They look very well made and the valves look smarter on your wheels. On the minus side they lose about 10psi in 24 hours and are more difficult to fit being very floppy, also more expensive.
No good for heavy braking down hill I fact I would say dangerous
Purchased these inner tubes for the Etape Du Tour for the light weight going UP hill and they were great until you have to come down the other side. Two high speed blow outs because of over heating rims due to heavy braking , in short they just can't handle that kind of ride but would be fine for any other event that doesn't require lots of braking.
I bought the product having read the reviews and I must say I am disappointed. The ride does not feel smoother than my previous bontrager tube I had in wheels and they were half the price from action bikes.
An easy inexpensive way to improve ride quality
FACT! latex tubes improve ride quality compared to butyl tubes. For a few pounds more you can trade up to a better ride - well worth the spend. Yes it's true they may be slightly trickier to fit than a heavier butyl tube - be careful not to pinch puncture them on installation. Yes - they do deflate with time, but so what - surely you let pressure out of your best wheels after a ride, then pump them up before next going out with your track pump? Show your riding mates you know what you're doing - buy a pair and give them a try - you won't be sorry
