High quality butyl tube ideally suited for Racing. This Light version is thinner than the standard Race 26 tube so keeping them inflated to the correct pressure will help prevent the risk of pinch flats. Unsurprisingly it also saves you rotational weight, helping to increase your speed that little bit extra.

Rated 3 out of 5 by redcap Too fragile for overall cycling.
Nice and light but, as it says on the box it's a race tube, not designed for the rigours of commuting and touring. My tube developed a leak where it contacted the rim tape afte 4 days.
Some of the longer (threadless) presta valves are difficult to top up when the air pressure is high because the valve seems to stick shut, even after depressing the valve a couple of times by hand. It's easier to delflate the tube to around 40 psi and reinflate.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous Poor Quality
Front inner tube failed at 90psi on fitting and was irreparable (went in bin). Rear tube got pinch flat after 11 miles at 85psi and could not be fixed. Paid extra for the light weight, but obviously at the expense of robustness and quality. I ran these with Continental Grand Prix MTB Folding tyres. Disappointed at quality of inner tubes from such a renowned German manufacturer and also disappointed that my complete order from CR took three months to arrive
