Rated 4 out of 5 Absolutely fine
good value for money, inflate well, roll nicely and maintain their psi. If you have problems with these inners then you'll have problems with all inner tubes.
In my opinion, it depends on the roads you ride on and the quality of your tyres. You can spend as much or as little as you want on an inner tube, but when something sharp penetrates your tyre, your going to get a flat.
Regardless of how much you spend on a tube, none are indestructible. Yes some are a fraction lighter, but we're not all riding the Tour de France. It just depends on whether you want to spend £3 or £10 every time you get a flat.
It's not about the bike, it's about who's riding it!

Two of these tubes changed in two weeks. bad luck? I don't think so. They are very poor quality and in both cases burst as a lateral fault rather than a cut. On top of that this morning I had a third, replacement one. Picture this: its raining, you cahnge your tube, congratulate yourself about how happy you've managed, start pumping and.... it wont' pump. That's right, the valve of the third of this 4-pack was blocked! So much for carrying around a spare, had to walk my bike to nearest shop and pay a fiver for a replacement tube... Now this may be very bad luck of course.... But I am not getting my money's worth here

I can't say they last any longer or shorter than any other tube. I have spent more on tubes for premium names and those ones only lasted days. it's down to the roads you ride and the state of your tyres. I'm ordering more. You can get months to days out of these.

Never had any issues with these tubes. Good quality, light weight and the longer valve is handy!

I have used these for several years due to low levels of income. i have ridden with 700x23 and in the last two years 700x32c. i have changed from Ribble training bike to just a cheap tourer. i have found these to be acceptable, im not expecting great things but i have not experienced any leaks from the valve or the point of connection to the tube like some of the other reviews. Thats not to say they are perfect, i have on occasion noticed the sound of air escaping from a confined space. Giving the pets a hard stare and trying not to breathe through my nose i then realise its coming from the bike. it has happened twice in the last few years. I assume it has something to do with rubber thickness and the tube perhaps sticking to the rim tape which is more a very large rubber band that came with the cheap wheels i got on my bike. All that said i am happy to use these and am just about to buy some more, and a 'sorry ' present for the pets.

I've replaced 5 x tubes in the last 2 weeks. They go flat even when I am not riding, and it's not the tyre or the Rim tape. They leak near the valve seem.
I bought a pack of 10. 5 leaked, 2 were ok. I've thrown the rest out.
Don't buy them, waste of money and effort.

These are a waste of material, time and money.
Unused tubes are already in the bin.
Back on the Schwalbe Road Tube, €6.49 from CRC.

Rated 1 out of 5 by CharlieB Valve delaminated immediately on first inflation
Until the manufacturer attaches the valves to the tube strongly enough, these tubes are useless. Do not buy.
