Fair price, high quality tube

At first I worried about puncture risk given light weight, but have had no problems. Quality tube at a good price.

Love these tubes. I don't worry about flat based on the tubes I use, tires should be the line of defense for flats. I love how light they are and hold pressure well. I usually have to top off the pressure every third ride or so. I usually wait until they go on sale.

My Everyday Tube For Years

Been using these consistently for years. The quality out of the box is reliable - didn't find that to be the case with others. When bought in quantity on sale, the price premium is negligible.

Use them in my race wheels.
by todd026
Competitive Racer

I use these tubes in my race wheels (Zipp 404 front, 808 rear w/ extender). Only ever had one issue in 2019 IMLP when I ran over a piece of wire in the road that flatted both front and rear leaving a nice sized indication in both tires (thankfully I was at mile 101). I don't think any tube would have survived that. These are dependable tubes that have served me well for many years and races,

Only tube that works

I have Zipp 404 NSW wheels. These are the only tubes that fit without valve extenders. I ordered the the 80mm length and they work great with my 58mm rims.

I had been an exclusive Michelin tube person but their longest tube is 60 mm and it doesnt work with my 404s.

It is really nice not to have to bother with valve extenders.

Great tube for the price.

I like lighter tubes and I run wider tires on my road bike. I have had trouble with latex tubes, so I stick to the regular rubber tubes. I just don't have any issues with these tubes and their reliability.

Weight Savings not worth the Risk you are taking using them!
by mootsrider

Campbell. CA
3 of 3 customers found this review helpful.

Have been using these tubes for few years and now have had 3 of them just blow when riding which blows the tire off the rim when this happens. Two days ago I had just put new tires on my bike and 8 miles into the ride on a steep hill descending the front tube blew instantly. Bang it went at 20 mph I was on the ground in a flash on my left side. After a visit to ER room and multiple stitches in left knee and right hand I took a look at the bike to see if I could tell what happened. Tire bead was good and no damage on it. Rim OK no damage. Tube had 6 inch slit in a straight line were it blew. It was not twisted when installed. So my advice is the weight savings is not worth the risk of these blowing and causing a crash. I now have a lot of damage to my 10,000 bike to repair besides months off the bike recovering. I see other riders had the tubes blow also on a ride. I would not trust this product!

Ok, but stem lengths vary

They are good tubes & decent quality. Oddly, the stem lengths vary up to 5mm. If this matters, suggest you account for it.

Use these tubes in a racing or training application. They have a great feel, and conti makes their tubes without seams which makes patching a breeze.

Best light weight tube
by Tom

While not the lightest tube, the Race Light, has the advantages of weighing less than standard tubes, and, this is crucial, seems to hold air pressure as well as or better than standard tubes.

My favorite tubes, and best value upgrade
by BikeLA
Cycling Enthusiast
Los Angeles, CA

Compared to standard tubes (e.g., Conti Race) the Lights save 30g and about 1 watt per wheel (per bicyclerollingresistance.com). All for a couple of bucks extra. That's amazing value for money. I am using Conti Lights on both my road bikes, paired with 25mm GP4000 SII and GP5000 tires. I find the Lights to be very reliable, and not noticeably more prone to flats than standard weight tubes. I do always check to make sure the core is securely installed - I have had a couple of flats, with other tubes, caused by removable cores that weren't tight and leaked.
