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.

Coming from a poor experience with latex tubes, I wasn't sure if these would repeat the problems of air loss and fragility in the pursuit of light weight. Happily I have been very suprised with their performance.
Sensibly light, yet robust. I've yet to have a puncture that I wouldn't have thought any other tube would have suffered. They don't lose air, don't stick to tyres and don't appear to have any obvious downsides other than being a bit pricier than other tubes.
Also come with nifty yellow valve caps, if that's your thing. I'm even considering using these on my commuting bike as well as my cross country race bike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Absolutely brilliant!
I've been using these tubes on my dirt/street bike with schwalbe table tops 2,25 with 5bar pressure - And I'm simply amazed. I haven't had a single puncture within two years, and I've been driving park, dirt and street. My first puncture came when I was moving to another town and accidentally bent the valve while loading my bike on top of all my furniture and other gear on a trailer. The tube got torn right next from the valve :( But anyhow a great tube, I highly recommend ;)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Nice tubes but not as light as 100g
Got these to save weight be they are at least 25g heavier than claimed, but not all bad they are great quality and have not let me down yet.
