Aerothan 700c — 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 700c tube combines seemingly opposing features — the lowest weight with the highest 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
  • 100% recyclable
  • Aerothan is compatible with the Schwalbe Glueless Patch Kit only

  • 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.

    Cool tubes

    Ordered a pair of these for road bike, 700x25 tires. They are lighter than latex and seem to not lose air as fast as latex do overnight or a day or so. Don't have too many miles with them yet, but they seem comparable to latex in ride quality, maybe not quite as supple. They make mounting tires easy with their small profile when just enough air is added to keep them from twisting when you are putting them in between the tire and rim. Can't speak on puncture resistance since I don't have many hours on them, but sos far so good. They are a bit pricey for tubes.

    Finally, some tube technology!

    I have these tubes installed on my new Giant Defy, running Schwalbe Pro ONE TLE tires. When you think about how much you pay to save weight, these tubes represent an excellent investment. As noted by another review, they hold air very well. They are MUCH lighter than conventional tubes, and saving weight that rotates really pays off. Installation was very easy, but I did need a valve extender (core is removable). At this point, I do not have lots of miles, but I will slowly add these tubes to all my bikes over time. I am sold!!

    Very Light, Great Ride Easy to Install

    Bought this on a whim after reading about the technology. First off, installation is actually easier than a regular tube. It easily slides in the tire casing without snagging and is very slippery. Pumped it up and was ready to ride in less than 5 minutes. My first thoughts when riding was you do feel a noticeable change in how the bike rides. The bike feels lighter more responsive smoother and faster. The tire also holds air for over a week without a change in air pressure. I have ridden only about a week or 100 miles so far but so far so good. Time will tell how puncture resistant these are. Yes $30 is a lot for tube but if you think about for $60 you can get a major change to your ride it makes it justifiable. Recommended!

    Incredible ride feel, flat resistance average

    These things ride smooth and I can tell the difference even against Continental supersonics. I purchased them for their flat avoidance claims first but was curious about ride quality.

    These tubes are expensive! For the price of one tube you can get 10 cheap, heavy, poorly constructed, flat prone, toxic chemical laden tubes straight from a Chinese sweat shop. So yeah, I paid more but my expectations were to avoid those issues.

    I was let down as I had a flat within 2 months of purchase and claims of patchability are poor (tpu does not repair the same as butyl). Simply finding special Schwalbe glueless patches are currently almost impossible. It's most likely this tube will be going in the trash, a shame as I can buy a tire at that cost.

    I was very surprised by the ride quality changes. I have 700x28 tires and run 70psi which probably helps. I have never tried latex, but I was able to pump these suckers up once a week with the pressure off only a couple psi.

    Even in light of the issues I will give them at least one more try. The ride that incurred the flat was a day after rains with roads still wet and that breeds flat inducing situations, this was not a pinch flat, no snake bite. These are also very space saving and keeping one as a spare may let you keep an additional inflator in your bag.

    Very light

    installed in a 42c gravel tire, one tube is holding air fine, the other leaks from the stem and is flat in 4 days. Very light, seems to allow the tire to squish and move on terrain in a comfortable mannerthat is slightly more noticeable compared to butyl tubes.

    OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE

    I purchased these tubes because they were touted as being puncture resistant. I've only done one ride on them, of about 70 miles. No punctures on the ride but that usually happens, fortunately, on most rides. So, I can't comment on the puncture resistance.

    What I can comment on, and what leads me to review them so soon, is how well they improve the performance of the bike. From the first pedal stroke, the bike felt quicker and more responsive. They won't move you from the rear of the peloton to the front, but you'll definitely notice an improvement in your performance.

    So, even if the prove to be only as puncture resistant as regular tubes, I'd still purchase them. They just ride better.

    I have only two negative comments about them: (1) They are expensive, especially for a tube; $30 for one tube is very high, even way higher than latex tubes. (2) They only come in one value-stem length. I needed to purchase separate valve-stem extenders to use them with my wheels. I don't know whether the price can be decreased but I am hopeful that Schwalbe will start offering them with longer valve stems.

    Exceeded early expectations!

    I decided to try these based on the description and because of my recent rash of flats. I really had no expectations for these tubes to change my cycling experience - but they have! The difference in rolling resistance is noticeable from the first rpm's. The bike is so much more responsive and comfortable. These tubes actually hold pressure even better than the race light butyl tubes I had used. After only a total of 45 miles though the jury is still out on puncture resistance/durability. But so far the Aerothan tubes are definitely game-changers.

    Terrific ultralight durable tube

    Lighter than latex, and it holds air better than butyl, with virtually no pressure loss between rides. Some reviewers have said they're hard to repair, but in my experience punctures are easily repaired using either the Schwalbe or Tubilito patch kits that are specifically made for thermoplastic tubes. They are great to carry in the flat kit since they are light weight and take up much less space than butyl or latex.

    Not sealant compatible

    I bought this to use as a spare on my tubeless gravel bike. However, the paperwork that comes with it says not to get it in contact with sealant. So, it is useless for my purposes. I bought lightweight tubes from another company that do not have this issue.
