Light, but slower than Conti Race Lights

I have been reluctant to try road tubeless as it's a bit of a hassle to get set up, whereas tubes are inexpensive and require no special equipment.

But, as one to always try to eek out a small performance benefit, I wanted to see if I could approach the watt savings of road tubeless without having to pump up daily like w/latex and save a few grams while doing so too.

However, these tubes are slower and (significantly) more expensive than Conti Race Lights in my testing although they do weigh less. So, going back to the ~$9 tube that's easier to patch and a smidge faster.

Worth a try

I bought this to replace a similar product from Schwalbe. The Schwalbe tube also performs well, but I nicked one of them when rotating tires and eventually a leak formed. I decided to give the Pirelli product a try.

The ride is similarly great, and the Pirelli tube seems a little smaller which is good when you're trying to avoid pinching it while installing the tire.

Credit Pirelli with being honest regarding serviceability of these tubes. They come right out and tell you that the tube cannot be repaired if you experience a puncture. Schwalbe tells you that you need to use their patch kit, but I have never been able to locate it online or in a LBS. Two attempts to fix my Schwalbe tube with what I believe is a similar and maybe identical Park patch kit were futile. The patches would not adhere to the tube.

But if you're careful with installations/rotations, I think you can get a lot of miles out of these. I currently have about 4500 miles on my Schwalbe tube with no issues of any kind.

Stem is fixed, so these are unusable with deep rims.

This is the best way to shed weight without the maintenance of tubeless. Size and weight are awesome. Been riding for months with no issues/flats and they hold air longer that butyl. Highly recommended, it’s a no brainer, reducing rotational mass, especially if you run 25mm tires or larger!

These are working great with the P-Zero tires. I wanted tubeless but nothing was available at the time. I bought these tubes to go with the tires to cut the weight down. I will however go back to tubeless when these wear out.
