Reliable, light, compact in saddle bag

I've been using these tubes now for about 2 years. They are light and no less reliable than any other butyl tube I've run. They are also quite compact and I can fit 3 of these where only 2 would fit of a bulkier tube. When on sale the value is good.

Light Weight and Long Lasting

Over the years I've tried many different brands of tubes and tube materials. Found the Continental Race Light Road Tube to be the best value for durability, weight and ease of patching should the need arise with multiple flats, caused by road debris, while out on a long ride.

Great lightweight tube

I am using my Race Light tubes with the Conti Grand Prix 4-season Vectran tire on Shimano RS-11 rims. This is not a particularly light weight set up, nor is it fragile. The tubes are well protected so I am not worried about damaging them.

My goto light weight tube

Buy a handful of these when they go on sale. Light weight tube for easy riding or racing. Carry a spare and run these in all my bikes. If you get a thorn or flat these are ok to patch.

Absolutely the best tubes

After ordering these tubes I did lots of reading about how lightweight race tubes are horribly unreliable & require daily inflation. Nothing could be more untrue about these contis I got them as a set with Ultra Sport II Folding tires & I ride every day. The rim has bottoms out sometimes twice a day, and I dread a pinch flat each time it happens, but so far the tubes have held up lovely. I've begun stocking up on tubes & conti tires bc I think they have the best product & reputation in the sector.

Great tube for the money, no issues with it.

I use this tube on an old Softride Firestorm converted to a trailroad bike on Spinergy rims. Lots of gravel and road debri. No issues so far.

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.

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...

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.
