Good tubes but a bit heavy

My main goal when purchasing these tubes was to ride puncture free. So far, after riding 500 miles (on new GP4000S tires), I still have not had any flats. So goal accomplished :-)

The one thing that surprised me a bit was the weight of the tubes - they felt noticeably heavier then the tubes I was using before (not sure about the brand). So if you are trying to shave every single gram off of your bike, you may want to consider a different tube - or drink one less beer the night before the ride, that will do the same thing :-)

Anyway, a good tube, no noise (from the valve stem), no flats so far.

Awesome, but beware CO2

Superior tube for the price. The matte black shaft of the threadless stem provides a satisfying visual. Easy engagement and release of pump heads. Very good pressure retention.

However, I did experience an explosive failure six hours after topping the tire pressure up using a CO2 inflator. The failure was at a mold seam near the pad up for the stem. I suspect the coldness resulting from using CO2 may have reduced flexibility long enough to start a tear. Time to failure was verified as it blew out in our hotel room at 4am. I imagine may tube materials could have this susceptibility so I can't condemn this product and I'm much more deliberate when using CO2 now to avoid freezing up the stem area.

Good product, quality issues

Same as previous reviewer had an issue with a new tube developing a leak at the seam. I bought at least 8 of these tubes and at least 2 of them developed a leak at the seam so I had to go back to generic, slightly heavier tubes. At least they are more reliable. Otherwise great product that works great with my Mavic wheel set.

Must have been bad batches

Have purchased 4 of these as I wanted new tubes in new tires. Had not flatted in almost two years. One blew a seam during inflation to 115. Gave one to a friend and a within two weeks he had a flat. Today, I flatted and could find no source in the tire....there was a tiny hole on the seam. Good news is that I went flat before a fast decent...so, not thrilled with the durability of these. Do like the smooth black presta though.

Great tube for the money.

Great tube with a smooth stem. You don't have to worry about pulling out the stem after pumping up the tire.

Tubes may be tubes, but these are great.

Some people say tubes are tubes, but I have tried several brands and have settled on these Mavics. It's a combination of good price, reliability (i have had fewer pinch flats with these than some other brands I have tried), and the well constructed stem. Not much else I can say about a tube, but I will be brand loyal to these as long as they remained priced essentially as they are now.

Excellent Tube!

I love these tubes. They are very durable. 2000 miles on my front tube (with a Mavic tire) and no flats.

Awesome tube!

Quality and lightweight tube. Unthreaded stem stays in place and seats perfectly in rim, so no unwanted vibration or noise when riding. Stems are good quality and easy to get pump head on them to fill with air. They work great with Continental Grad Prix 4000s tires. Ridden them for over 400 miles over gravely and debis filled roads, and no pinch flats! Highly recommend this tube.

Very neat black valve stems

What can you say about tubes. These have black smooth valve stems. Look really great with dark colored bikes and new wheels. Why buy ordinary tubes when you can get something out of the ordinary!
