Tired of flat tires? If you ride in an area where the roads are often covered with glass, wire, or small thorns, Slime Self-Sealing Tubes may be for you. The butyl rubber tube is filled with green colored "Slime" sealant. The sealant seeps out any small hole and solidifies to seal the hole as you're riding. You often won't even know you had a flat. Presta valves are threaded 36mm or 48mm.

Works well but you can save money by sliming your own standard tubes

No mess is nice but they are a bit pricey. They work great for small punctures and always get me home!

Always make it home

Is there anything more frustrating than changing tubes mid-ride? Not for me. This is a great product that got me through the last 16 miles of the bike on my recent 70.3 when I picked up a tack but was able to finish the race.

I've used them for years bu this one failed

I have used Slime tubes for years with great success. I have ridden in thorn and cactus infested areas for hundreds of thousands of mile. Not to mention the hundreds of small sealups,I once had a gnarly 4 inch thorn go thru the tread and out the sidewall, I pulled it out spun the tire and watched the green wonder goo seal it up. I never changed that tube until the tire went bald, several hundred miles later.

I was dissapointed though when this last tube I used separated at the stem rubber connection at initial fillup. Too much of a pain in the ass to send it back so I ate it.

Even given that, these tubes are worth their weight in thorns.

Nice tube at a great price if you are not worried about weight.

I use the slime tubes on my mountain bike and they work great. I decided to buy these for my road bike for training to minimize the possibility of a tube swap during a ride. These tubes do hold up and will typically allow you to finish a ride before the leak forces a tube swap. I did get a pinched tube with one of these and it did not stop the leak, so for that reason I gave 4 stars.

Great Tubes!

These tubes are great. We live in an area where there are tons of thorns. I did nothing but patch tires. Haven't had to do one repair since putting these on.

Seem to be working.

The tubes seem to be heavier then regular tubes but that should be an easy offset for not getting flats.

No flats since installing this tube.

After having flat tires once a week for 19 weeks, I am happy to report no more flats. I have been using this in conjunction with a Kevlar tire. Satisfied customer.

I like the thicker tube and slime combo.

I almost always remove the tube that comes with the bike and replace them with the slime tube. Its just better to prepare for the worst by buying the best.

Good for low speed flat protection.

the sealing goo has a tendency to flat spot when the tire sits, presumably at the lowest pt, a little disturbing initially, seems to distribute more equally after a mile or so. If it does puncture, the escaped goo makes it difficult to adhere a patch

in the field. has saved several rides for me, and that it very good.

Hate Flats? Get These.

I REALLY hate flats. Wouldn't use anything else. Adds a little weight, but.....

A little messy when you inflate your tires, but if you have your stem between 11 and 1 (clock positions) it is really minimal.

Does what it says - which is good and bad

Works great at sealing small punctures from thorns. Unfortunately, it also seals up when it gets into the valve. I have replaced a couple of tubes because when putting air into the tubes, some slime inevitably got into the valve. Gummed it up so that it slowly lost air. I don't know that this is a reason to NOT use this product. If you get lots of thorns anyway, this will probably keep you from changing tubes two or three times a month - the valve issue causes me to replace the tube once every three months. Personally, I think it saves me money and hassle.

Still a fan

As a commuter cyclist, flats are a deterrent. With Slime inner tubes, I have gone over a year without a flat. That does not mean I have gone over a year without issues. Slime Presta valves clog and fail. Take care to read all instructions on the back of the box. Near the bottom you will see how to clean them.

I though I could avoid Slimes by buying extreme flat resistant tires. I bought Specialized Armadillos. Two flats in a month.

Slimes are only part of the solution. Even with Slimes, I got many flats after my Serfas Secas (flat resistant tires) had over 1500 miles. So you still have to keep your tires up to snuff.

works as advertised, but it is heavy and the Slime tends to collect at the bottom of the wheel.

This tube works as advertised, no flats yet despite riding around and through a lot of Blackberry bushes (ouch!). It is heavy and the Slime tends to collect at the bottom of the wheel. Make sure you let it redistribute evenly before jumping to high speed on trainers or rollers!

Seem to work but FOLLOW DIRECTIONS!

We pick up lots of what the locals call goat-heads, which are a thorn that lays on the paths and results in flat tires. We tried using the heavy tubes which helped a little but not much. After becoming much too proficient at fixing flats, I decided to try these slime tubes. On the original adding air, I didn't keep the valve at the top of the tire and some of the slime migrated into the valve core. I couldn't get air either in or out of the tube. I ended unscrewing the valve core and still couldn't get the core out. I ended up using needle-nose pliars to pull the core out and since there was some air in the tube, the slime blew out all over me, the bike and everything else! Follow directions!
