Aerothan 29inch — the High-End Alternative to the Basic Bicycle Tube
The Schwalbe Aerothan is a material that completely redefines bicycle tubes: extremely light, with maximum puncture protection and designed for minimum rolling resistance.
Aerothan tubes consist of 100% thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), including the valve, and are therefore fully recyclable. This next generation of bike tubes sets an impressive standard for weight, puncture protection, ride feel, effortless installation, and the dimensions of packaging.
Specifically made for road bikes, MTBs, and all-round purposes, Schwalbe's innovative high-end 29 inch mountain bike tube tube combines seemingly opposing features — the lowest weight with the high level of puncture protection.
The Aerothan is the result of the Schwalbe innovation hub redesigning material compositions and construction principles, to make entirely new products. Developed in cooperation with BASF and with experts from the German plastic manufacturing industry, the Aerothan tube emerged to not only meet all the requirements of a high-end bicycle tube, but to exceed them.
Features of the Wonder Material — Aerothan:
Fully light-weight, right to the valve - about 40% less weight than a comparable Schwalbe extra light tube
Puncture protection newly defined - the material itself prevents sudden air loss
Minimal rolling resistance - maximum riding dynamics
Extremely heat resistant - certified for rim brakes
A stable ride - even with low air pressures
Easy installation - without slipping or pinching
Made in Germany
Note: While these tubes are the latest in technology, there is still no guarantee against puncture or failure. Aerothan products do not qualify for a refund or replacement.
