Cheaper than Continental and with reduced weight for less rotational inertia. It also nicely matches carbon rims with their all-black stem. With Conti tubes you also have to be careful not to select the variant with a smooth stem, which does not allow a knurl screw to be mounted and makes it difficult to engage a pump. Your inner tube can be a Schwalbe, even if you ride Conti tires!
Really nice, well made, light tubes. Watch the removable valve core for looseness (I did like others and added Loctite) to avoid surprises.
Purchased 3. One for each wheel & a spare. Unfortunately there were weak spots in one that I mounted which resulted in leaks when inflated. Pulled it off, patched it & now it's the spare. Not real happy, but so far things are holding up fine.
Use this tube both as a rear tire for my road racing recumbent, and to help with tubeless installation. For tubeless installation I first install a tubeless ready tire with this tube, inflate and go for a short ride to properly seal the rim tape. Then I take out the tube, install a valve, reseat the tire and add sealant
The tube fails at the seams. Came as OEM (original equipment manufacturer) with my Canyon bike. Replaced with same with the same result.
I have used these tubes for some time unfortunately the last batch ordered had leaky valves. Will consider other brands
Very light and durable sadly the last batch I ordered had a leaking valve and I had to replace them adding to the cost. All 6 tubes I ordered had the same issue.
After a couple hundred miles 100 psi is a Schwalbe tire the saddle whee the stem connects to the rest of the tube separated. Disappointing for me as I just changed over from another brand to Schwalbe.
I have had good luck with these, and be sure to watch out for the removable valve core coming loose. Light and hold air well
These tubes are very light and durable. They hold up as well as any on the market and hold air better than most for such a thin tube. Have used them for two years and happy with their performance. One more plus, they have dark valve stems and look great with black carbon rims!
The Schwalbe Extra Lite's were exactly what I was looking for when I set up my carbon wheel set. In addition, the tubes have removable stems which allow you to add an extension if needed.
