Lightweight & Tough Inner Tubes For Today's Road Cyclist

Continental's Race Road Tubes are everything you want from an inner tube: lightweight, durable, and reliable. While a lighter tube may not seem like it makes a difference, it actually takes away from the overall rotational weight of the wheel, which makes a huge impact on both long rides and punchy sprints. The Continental Race Road Tubes are made from standard weight butyl and feature removable Presta valve cores, so you can inject sealant for additional puncture protection.

Due to their compact size and lightweight, the Continental Race Road Tubes are excellent for stashing away in a saddle bag or jersey pocket. With their 60mm Presta valve, these tubes are compatible with most regular rim depths.

The Continental Race Road Tubes are now available in 700c x 20-25mm and 700c x 25-32mm sizes with 60mm Presta valves. Stocking up on tubes is never a bad idea, especially if you ride with friends who may not carry their own spares!

Features

  • Average weight per tube: 104-135 grams.
  • 60mm threaded Presta valve with removable core
  • Compact and lightweight
  • Avaliable in 700c x 20-25mm and 700c x 25-32mm sizes
  • Made of standard weight butyl

  • B-Stock - This product has one or more B-Stock units available. These units can be purchased at a discount (see option select). B-Stock units were returned from other customers and may have missing or damaged packaging materials. These units are otherwise as new. The full manufacturer warranty applies.

    Good tubes are worth the money

    I use these tires for my road bike. I have purchased cheap tubes in the past and have paid the price for it. Continental tubes cost a bit more, but seem to hold up, help avoid pinch flats, have better valves and in general give confindence.

    those removable valve cores are an absolute nightmare

    When they say "removable valve core" they mean "core outer gage of the exact same thread and diameter as the valve stem". have not managed to refill them without disconnecting the valve core and causing a decompression (sometimes with the fun side effect of shooting the damn core out) once, either with a threaded pump or even just unscrewing the valve cap. incredibly frustrating to use, regardless of tube quality.

    Can't go wrong

    Continental provides a repeatable good experience with their high quality products. I'm sure there is lighter or cheaper tubes available. I'm also sure I want a good product for a good price. That said, I don't have to think twice about purchasing these tubes. As a "normal guy" rider they'll do everything I need them to do. Biketiresdirect provides quick delivery and great price. I'll continue to use this product and will purchase them from Biketiresdirect.

    Continental Road Race tubes are high quality.

    The Continental Road Race tubes are a high quality product for road cycling both training and racing. I use them with my Continental Grand Prix 4000 S II tires. One of the best things about the tubes is that they come in a variety of stem lengths. I have two sets of deep rim carbon fiber wheels on my road bikes and being able to get the longer stem is a key feature of this product. The tubes are long lasting and are great when paired with almost any wheel tire combination you have. Highly recommended.

    My favorite tube

    Waited about 2 months for these to return to stock since I like these tubes. I use these on a Seven tandem with 700x28 tires and find that running a slightly larger tube in the 28mm tire gives excellent performance. I do not like to over over inflate a smaller diameter tube. Of course, I coat the outside of the tube with talcum powder and always powder the inside of the tire. I find that this gives extra slip when inflating the tube and prevents creases or folds that can cause an air leak or a heavy spot on the tire.

    Excellent balance between weight and durability

    This is my go-to inner tube. It's not too heavy, a good compromise between strength and performance.

    The seams are not raised like some, so it's easier to patch. A note of caution Be sure the removable valve core is properly seated. We were bothered by a slow leak from a slightly loose core. The price from BTD is always good.

    Holds air better than any other light weight tube I've tried!

    I bought a couple of these tubes to use in an old school single walled 27 wheel. I liked the stem size. At 42mm instead of 48mm (too long) or 32mm (too short), these were the goldilocks size, just right.

    But what impressed me most is that they held air pressure better than most any other light weight tube I've used. So I tried them in my 26er and had the same results. Before I knew it was was switching my 700C wheels as well.

    I know many will say a tube is a tube and only as good as the tire that surrounds it. But for me, the light weight, perfect stem size and proven less air lose makes this my choice for tubes going forward.

    Nothing Special

    I've been using the Continental brand for years...Normally nothing wrong with them... I usually only have problems with innertubes when there's a tire problem..ie puncture, something imbedded in the rubber or a hole in the tire that causes the innertube to protrude and pop. I have to use a 60 mm valve stem so the expense is more but I stock up when I catch them on sale.

    Good Dependable Tube

    The Continental Race Road Tube has been my go to for years. They are a combination of durable and light weight. I guess it could change itself, but given that they last so long, that's not really an issue.

    Great tube but you may need to tighten the stem

    These are good tubes. I've run them exclusively for the past two years. No blowouts. Precious few flats. When I first started using them I thought roughly 1 in 4 were defective since 25% had a very slow leak. What I figured out is the valve assembly is not always fully tightened into the stem. Check each one before you mount it with a small adjustable wrench. Do not over tighten.. Assuming it's tight, tube is great.

    Tubular, dude.

    Sure, it is just a tube. But have you ever really considered the gravity of your decision when selecting a tube for your bike? Some tubes are made from crappy parts or fall apart. I cannot count the number of times that Kenda-made tubes have had valve stems which bend/break or generally deform. Continental tubes cost a bit extra money because they are quality parts. These are not high end frou frou race tubes which need to be treated with extreme care and cuddled throughout your ride. These tubes are for when you want your tire to stay round, not break valve stems, and generally be the last thing you worry about. This is not to say that there are not downsides to this tube. If you run over a thorn, some improperly disposed glass beer bottles, or if a youth decides to slash your tire with a butterfly knife, then it is likely that your wheel may go flat. This is after all just a bicycle tube, not an indestructible ring of fury and speed. But, I am confident that this is the tube for me, possibly for you. When in stock, it is the first place I go.

    TL,DR - Quality tube at decent price, won't fall apart.
