Make flats a thing of the past with Protek Max Inner Tubes.

Michelin has achieved a new level of puncture resistance thanks to a unique "square" shape and textured surface. This innovative design actually causes the tube to compress, rather than expand, when pieced by a sharp object. A sealant has also been added to increase the "self-plugging" effect at the origin of the puncture.

As an added bonus, the square design also eliminates twisting during installation and holds pressure twice as a long as a traditional round tube, so you can spend less time at the bike pump, and more time riding.

This version of the Protek Max tube is sized for 26x1.85-2.30 inch mountain bike tires (47/58-559 ISO) and features a 34mm schrader or 40mm threaded Presta valve (removable core). 349g (tube weights may vary).

Not worth the effort

The tube comes with a very small valve to add air, which was not clear to me when ordering the tubes. These do not take a regular air pump to fill the tire. The tube does not come with any adapter to allow filling the tube from a traditional pump. I went to a local bike shop. They had what I needed and would not even take the tubes - free - for someone who may want them. They are filled with anti-leak material and they said that no one wants these. I donated them to habitat. The effort to return these to Bike Tires Direct .com was not worth the effort. These tubes are way to expensive.

BikeTiresDirect.com Comments
Hi, I'm sorry about the confusion with valve options on those tubes. We offer tubes with either the schrader or presta valve. Schrader valves are what you would see on a car tire and often require a different pump than a presta valve. Most bike pumps can do either. If you have a presta valve and wanted a schrader you can either exchange the tube or use an adapter to fill it up with air. The adapter, made by Genuine Innovations, allows you to pump your tube up with either type of pump head. Let us know if we can help you any further! Jeremy

Great Tube!!

This is a great Mtn bike tube for areas with goat head thorns. So far I have ridden 200 miles with out a flat puncture. I have never done that with any other sealants in tubes. I have tried them all !!! I'll post again as the summer months begin.

Beefy tubings!

I use these on the day I went mountain biking and they lasted. I like how it felt heavy duty as I placed them in and no need for extra attachments to pump air into them. They are great, bought them 5 weeks ago and are still good.
