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.

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.

Not good for road bikes.

True you don't get flats. But you will loose air pressure and your ride will be very difficult. Just get a good patch kit and learn to fix a flat on the road.

Self-sealing bicycle tube hasn't been any more flat-free than standard tube.

Heavy, self-sealing tube seems like the answer to a flat-free ride, but my experience shows it about the same as a standard tube. I prefer Hardcase tires that already have flat-protection built in, and bought these self-sealing tubes to decrease the chance of getting a flat. The are very difficult to patch because the slime runs out of the whole and contaminates the area during patch preparation. The valve stem on one failed, so the tube became useless.

Pros You may be able to simple pump up the tire and continue your ride.

Cons Heavy, difficult to patch, slime sprays out of stem when attempting to re-inflate.

Bottom line I will NOT buy them again. They have TOO much slime in them and don't work as well as tubes I have manually added slime to.

I ride 700x23c at 110psi. The high psi may be a problem. On my folding bike with 65psi tires, the slimed tubes work great!

Gimmick not worth the extra cost or weight

Does not do what it claims. Heavy. Caught a puncture flat within one day of installation. Save your dough and buy a regular tube & patch kit.

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.

Does NOT prevent flats!!

This tube went flat before I even had it out on the road. I installed it the same as any other tube. It hissed out air while I was inflating it for the first time. I pulled it out and found the pin prick sized leak. It oozed out green slime but it did not self seal. Upon closer examination of the rim and tire, I could find nothing that would have caused the leak. So, I patched the tube, thinking that might help, but it still wouldn't hold air.

The tube itself seems pretty lousy and the green slime is worthless. Don't bother!!

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.

Hype

Used inside relatively wide 26 inch Kenda Small Block 8's. I ride on pavement, packed gravel, and grass. Flatted after 3 rides. I inspected the tube and found a pin size hisser. Took the tube out and massaged the slime around. Inflated and still no seal. The green slime just oozes out with no effect at all. This product is poor quality and mostly marketing. Do not use.
