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 4 out of 5 by OK Подкачивать приходится перед каждой поездкой, за неделю спускает полностью. 25 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Using good tyres? - Use good tubes as well Latex tubes give a better quality ride than butyl tubes, in good quality tyres. May be slightly more tricky to fit (ensure you talc them), and they do deflate with time due to the permeability of latex vs butyl tubes. This is only a very minor drawback in comparison to the performance on the road. Apparently latex tubes are also less prone to punctures. Weighs around 75 to 80g. The only tubes lighter in my experience are continental gp supersonic tubes, at about 50g - another good tube, but you need to be extremely carefull fitting the supersonics not to pinch puncture them as they have very thin walls. Given the relatively small price increment over normal tubes, it's madness not to buy these 09 July 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not recommended Air is leaking very fast. Goes flat after around one week if not inflated. Hard to fit. First burst straight after fitting. Second one burst couple months later on the road. 04 June 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 Not a good choice I think too soft to fit in to rims, even the bike shop workers broken one of them when they fitting in, very easy to blast off, i have ride 120KM and it blast off already. and also break my outer tyres, that was a Michelin Pro4 Comp!!! another cons is air leak very fast, i pumped to 110psi, after 3hr ride it gone down to 100 put it there two or three day, it drops to 40-60psi but the only good is light weight, and it got a good, soft, riding feelings. i would never use it again 29 May 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Smooth, light weight and reasonable value for weight Have been buying these for many years. I use the latex version on my race bike and the butyl version on my normal road/training bike. I use them with Conti 4000S tyres. Lovely rolling. If you do not like the way that they loose air you should buy the butyl version. 26 May 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not light This actually weigh 83g without the valve cap. Not worth spending the money since you can get lightweight butyl tubes that weigh significantly less. 04 May 2014
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

Answer: 
No - Use a valve extender such as Zipp (permament), or Mavic (screw in, inflate, then remove) to inflate in deep section wheels

Answer: 
no, they are usually standard presta. Why would you want to do that? If you want to add puncture sealant you are buying the wrong tube. Buy a heavier butyl tube instead.

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.
