How many road bike or mountain bike rides have been ruined by a flat? Regardless of whether it’s a puncture or a pinched flat, the cyclist’s hopes for the day’s outing are dashed. Repairing or changing an inner tube is never easy, even for an experienced rider. Many users have lost their patience given the many steps involved in repairing a flat tire. As a result, the inner tube has become the Achilles’ heel of cycling… or at least it was until Michelin’s advanced research programs decided to tackle the problem. With the launch of the new Protek Max inner tube, Michelin has found an efficient, speedy, groundbreaking solution. Flat tires and all the unpleasant aspects of changing an inner tube are now part of the past. The Protek Max delivers in three key areas: it is highly resistant, easy to mount and maintains tire pressure longer.
The Protek Max is virtually airtight. While a traditional inner tube like the Michelin Air Stop needs to be re-inflated at regular intervals, the new Michelin Protek Max requires inflation only half as often.
The problem of twisting – so common with traditional tubes – has been effectively eliminated. In addition to being an innovative product that saves time and energy, the Protek Max is also an attractive example of contemporary design thanks to its square shape. Thus for the first time, an inner tube combines advanced technology and an equally innovative aesthetic appeal.

Qualità ottima, "calzabilità" eccellente, ottimo il fatto che si autoripara (anche se spero di non provare prossimamente ;-) , unico neo è un pò pesante

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gazzz Seems pretty good.
Have not been running it for long but so far no flats. It does have some liquid sealant inside but not heaps like a slime tube so it is not too heavy. I found it to be probably one of the easiest tubes to install because of the square shape. Also seems like it would be difficult to get it pinched between the tyre and rim while installing.

Жидкость от проколов работает, проверил. И работает хорошо. А вот ниппели слабые, по крайней мере преста. Одно неаккуратное движение насосом, он чуть гнётся и начинает травить. Исправить так и не вышло на двух камерах(!)

Good rubber , seals puntures as well as no tubes systems .Quality valve .Easy to fit .I can vouch for the claim of airtightness.
Compared to a slime tube these are far superior .If like me you run light unprotected tyres these are a cheap and effective insurance against thorns etc .

Very tough rubber , odd design of a tube but engineering of it works impressively .After recently getting large thorns stuck in my tyre the speed and efficiency of the "goo" was well worth the money .Instant seal , no loss of pressure .As far as air tightness goes they do need pumped up less in comparison to the slime tube I run on the rear .
