So Far So Great

I was an early adopter to tubeless for road and off road, but for me tubeless is getting old. I can see the value in MTB where very low pressures might be needed for some situations, but for road and gravel not so much.

Enter TPU SmartTubes. Easy to set up on wide rims. High quality feel. Lightweight, compact - easy to carry a spare. Pinch flat resistant even at lower pressures. Hold pressure - little to no need for topping off.

I don't have many miles on them yet so will update a thousand miles in. So far I'm happy.

These tubes are expensive - we will just get that out of the way.

I ride a Quintana Roo tri bike and the tool compartment above the back wheel is limited in space, so this was the only tube I could find that would fit in there. During a race I ran over glass and blew out my tire. I put this tube in and inflated it only to see it was bulging out the tire - I didn't do a very good job looking for cuts. I had a choice - take the tire back off (and do what I should have done initially) and put a dollar bill inside to keep the tube from bulging, or roll the dice and go for it. Since the cut was kinda' on the side I figured I'd got for it. This got me back to transition (about 15 miles)! At the end of the day I found the tire to be flat, but that was okay. I bought a couple more of these super tubes

Lighter than latex, packs smaller than latex for extra spare.

I love this tube. I have tires set up tubeless, latex, and one bike with these. They are super light and have not yet punctured so far so good. They hold air better than latex, not as good as standard butyl but close. They are perfect road or gravel tubes and maybe the best use is as a back up spare if you run tubeless.

Not worth the cost

I purchased these tubes along with a brand new set of Schwalbe Pro One 28mm tires. I have ridden less than 200 miles and have encountered a slow leak from the tube installed on my front tire. I had higher expectations since these are built for gravel. Not worth it - I should have invested in a tubeless setup. I've learned my lesson

Very light weight!

Compared to a lightweight butyl tube this is even half the weight. Between a pair of wheels the weight savings by using these tubes could be equivalent to a couple hundred bucks! The weight savings are where they matter, at the periphery of the wheel. Physics alone tells you your rotational acceleration will be faster.
