Michelin A1 AirComp Latex Road Tube

The natural elasticity of latex actually reduces rolling resistance, and the Aircomp Latex weighs just 75 grams, making it one of the lightest inner tubes available.

From local criteriums to the grand classics and the Tour de France, professional riders demonstrate the Aircomp Latex's superiority throughout the season. It's the ultimate accessory for today's high-performance wheels and tyres.

As with any high-performance product, latex tubes require regular maintenance; be sure to check your air pressure before every ride.

Specifications:

  • Weight: 75g
  • Size: 18-20c or 22-23c
  • Valve: Presta

Rated 5 out of 5 by Specs incomplete Please be advised. These tubes are fitted with 60mm valves, although it's not listed in the specs. Unless you have deep aero rims these will just add weight and look odd. 21 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable n Fasssst low weight, Much Much More Comfortable Ride yet Faster than normal tubes - lower rolling resistance and higher a resistance to punctures -compared to even high quality Butyl inner tubes I ride on rough road surfaces regularly, my butt used to suffer but now I'm always looking forward to the next ride. 31 October 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Light, durable alternative to butyl tubes A little bit expensive, maybe you will need to check the pressure more often... BUT COMPLETELY RECOMMENDABLE PRODUCT... I do not care about checking the pressure everyday... if you do long rides you should do it anyway Very, very nice product made by Michelin 15 September 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent alternative to Butyl tubes. Excellent, classic tried & tested inner-tube material. For example, latex tubes are what are fitted in higher quality tubular tyres -contributes to their renowned ride quality. These tubes (for Clincher tyres) are low weight, give a noticeably supplier ride quality (higher vibration absorption) lower rolling resistance and higher a resistance to punctures -compared to even high quality Butyl inner tubes I definitely recommend using Latex inners', if you use up to 25mm width tyres, low spoke count factory made wheels, ride on rough road surfaces regularly. Some people on web' forums, make a big deal of the more regular need for tube inflation with Latex, but it is not as regular as made out. With either Michelin or Vittoria Latex inners' quality, problems don't arise. Lastly, availability in the UK, of Latex inners for 28mm width / 700c tyres is really bad. 09 August 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Latex Tubes! This is my first time using Latex Tubes. I previously ran Airwave Road Tubes With Schwalbe Ultremo DD 25c. I Hit a pothole so hard that it blew the tube and screwed my tyre. I decided to change tyre supplier from schwalbe as the sidewalls started to crack which was concerning. I am now running Michelin Pro 4 Endurance 23c with these latex tubes. So far I can say they are very strong as the pro 4 has strong sidewalls and during fitting I caught the tube on the rims several times and it did not puncture! Then on my very first ride on them I hit a sunken drain at around 20mph the sound was horrible but my tyre tube and rim were unharmed to my amazement. They roll really nice and plush. (the only downside to latex tubes is they lose air more regular than rubber, but less punctures is better in my opinion) 12 November 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by unreliable Don't do it...They don't roll any better than race lights,aren't any more comfortable,are 10g lighter- big woop,and you have to pump them up every day...I also had one blow on me.It blew a 2cm hole in my tyre.Manufacured poorly,the valve stem came away from the tube.And yes fitted correctly and 115psi.So dunno if it's worth the hassle. 05 October 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent ! I endorse & fully agree with all the positive comments here. (The need to check tyre pressure more often is a very small price to pay for the performance benefit you will quickly notice) 18 August 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lightweight. Great rolling resistance. Comfortable. I never had a puncture on the last 4,000 kms on these latex tubes with Ultremo ZX clinchers. Very pliant ride. Comfortable and feels like on tubular. With a lightweight wheel and tyres these latex gives you the tubular advantage without the inconvenience and cost of a tubular. 21 March 2012

Answer: 
If you find yourself on either side of the available tube sizes, I find the best option is often to go for the larger of the two (it's better to have the extra tube material to work with, although some riders would prefer to go for the smaller size to help keep the weight as low as possible). In practice, with a 21c tyre you could use either of these tubes.
