I have gone through four of these in four training sessions , ran a puncture everytime.
Used them for long distance training on rough gravel roads in Sweden. I never had any problems with the "normal" conti mtb tubes.
Now if i want to save weight i´d rather invest in a pair of lighter wheels.
And the little time you would save in a race with the supersonic simply wont make up the time for a puncture. Because the puncture will definetely happen!

Rated 5 out of 5 by mevnet Great Light Tube
Aside from the lower weight I did not feel anything different. They hold the pressure very well, wish they were a bit cheaper. Great alternative to tubeless.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Good lightweight tube
I've been trialling a few tubes, this and the Maxis Flyweight seem to be the lightest around. They're about the same weight, the Maxis comes with a rim strip, which turned out to be handy when I discovered my rim tape had come unstuck exposing the rough edges of the spoke holes in the wheel. But other than that, there's not much to separate them. If you want a light tube, you're probably going to have a slightly higher risk of puncture, I imagine it's best to run them at high pressure. They're more than twice the price of a regular tube, but half the weight. I'm not usually much of a weight weenie, but have to admit, the bike feels a bit more zippy with these. Have lost a race due to a palm thorn puncture in the Flyweight, but that would've happened with any tube - only tubeless could've prevented that one that one I suspect.
In summary, if you want a lightweight tube setup, this will do the job well. But then, so will the Maxis Flyweight. And after a bit of testing, I'm thinking tubeless is probably the more sensible option anyway.

I've been using the road and MTB versions of these tubes for years now with no problems. They are as light as claimed but you do have to be careful on installation as they are very thin. I've never had a puncture with one. This is probably due to the fact that i use sensible mid-weight tires. Don't marry these with ultra light tires as you will get plenty of punctures as one of my mates found out.
Yes they are expensive but for £6 over a regular tube your saving 50g at the rim. Thats a pretty good return when compared to the weight saving from other components.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous It has blown at 50 psi, I didnt even put back the wheel on the bike. There is a 3 centimetres hole in it. brand new never ridden. Honestly for more objective review i should try the other one which is still in the box but i will not,somehow i dont feel confident in using them. The worst twenty euros i have ever spent on the bike:):):) Featherlite but weak.
