Mostly satisfied

These are pretty much risk free in spite of their weight. I rarely flat. Every once in a while, a tube will burst during inflation after installation. Probably user error...

Great tubes for a reasonable price

The Continental Race Light Road tube is a fantastic tube and at BikeTiresDirect they are a very reasonable price. The Continental tubes are well made and long lasting for light weight tubes. Multiple rolling resistance tests show that the lightweight butyl tubes are within 2-3 watts as latex, but a lot less expensive. And, butyl tubes are safer to use in carbon clinchers due to their higher heat tolerance. The pressure loss of the Continental Race Light tubes is much better than any latex tube. The Continental Race Light tubes offer a great option for fast riding when the limitations of latex aren't worth the benefits.

Light and reliable.

Been using this tube for years mostly with Vittoria Rubino Pro's with a fairly high PSI (110-120). I get pretty good milage out of these on my road bike, commuter bike, and track bike.

A good quailty light race tube.

Use these tubes in a racing or training application. They have a great feel, and conti makes their tubes without seams which makes patching a breeze.

Found a winner ... keep buying it

Have used these Continental Race light tubes in 700x25 (Michelin) racing and training tires for several years. No problems. Stems work well with screw-on, shop and bike-mounted, pumps (Lezyne.) Sometimes I deflate slightly after ride, sometimes I just leave them at 110 psi. Doesn't seem to make any difference. (Although I still feel, from the old sew-days, that stretched rubber should be allowed to rest after a ride.) I would give it 5-stars except can't see calling any plain-ol' bike tube awesome and a steal. ,-

.66 miles until it blew at the seam

I purchased 2 of these tubes. 1 burst at only .66 miles into my ride and sounded like a firecracker! Seam split. The other held up for the ride but I may remove it. They leak air like crazy 20lbs over night. I will not buy these again.

Pinch flat prone

I got these this year since I've started racing as well as doing more high climb centuries (9000 - 11,000 ft) to save weight. However, I'm switching back to Tour 700s because I've been having so many pinch flats during training rides. The rural roads around here have plenty of potholes, rocks, debris, etc. and I got stranded 50 miles from home yesterday with two pinch flats (one on my rear tire and then another on my spare).

Light, reasonably priced but only 5050 on quality

Purchased two (2) Continental Race Light road tubes to go with two new Michelin Pro4 Endurance 25mm tires. Happy with the pricing and delivery. Unfortunately, from the get-go, one of the tubes' valve leaks if not screwed in... which makes inflation to a precise pressure a challenge. I'll be changing it out soon - too much fidgeting for my tastes.

I'm happy you had the size tube & tires needed for my Handcycle.

My Handcycle manufactured by Top End - Invacare requires 26 x 78 tires and they are sometimes very difficult to find. Local bicycle shops do not carry them on hand.
