Shave precious grams on race day with Vittoria Latex Tubes. When weight matters most, latex tubes are the best choice. Available in two sizes: 700c x 19-23mm (19/23-622 ISO; 70g) and 700c x 25-28mm (25/28-622 ISO; 85g). Smooth Presta 48mm valve (with removable valve core) only. Latex tubes do not hold pressure as long as butyl; you will need to pump them up before each ride.

Light, Supple

I don't find these lose air any faster than a light weight butyl tube. I do find they are less prone to flats and the ride quality is great. They feel like they make tires roll faster, but that could be placebo effect. A bit pricey, hence 4 stars for value.

Easy and smooth

First latex tubes. Ride like I'm on a cloud (paired with 33mm supple tires).

Treated them like fine crystal during install, no issues. Did the typical inflate/deflate every 20 psi and thoroughly checked for pinches in the bead each step. Just a quick check and pump before each ride, so far so good!

Tubeless Challenged

OK, yes, it is 2021. Us dinosaurs are hard to change, and with the rolling resistance studies confirming these are the top rated (along with the appropriate tire of course), why go 2021? Tubeless vs. tube? I will take these 10 of 10 times....

Better ride feel, lower pressures, better flat protection than butyl

My 150-lb self runs these on road bikes, 25c to 28c tires.

For 25c inflate to 70psi for training rides, 80psi for races.

For 28c tires inflate to 55psi (no racing on these).

Better grip. road feel, pinch-flat protection.

I once neglected to check pressure before a race, double-flatted on a pothole, but neither tire went flat immediately like a butyl tube would have. I was able to safely come to a stop even while bombing downhill after the pothole.

Highly recommend this product.

Check tire pressure before each ride though, because latex does leak air.

Loving Latex

I stayed away from Latex inner tubes thinking they were too delicate, but this has not proven to be the case. And since I always pump my tires before every ride, I don't mind that they loose pressure overnight. The feel is noticeable, and combined with a 300+ TPI cotton tire, the ride is incredible. Unless I'm riding a lot of crappy chip-seal or bad pavement, I prefer 25c tires over 28c tires. The latex tubes gives the 25c tire about the same feel as a high quality 28c with butyl tubes, but the 25 provides more road feel without the marshmellowy, "are my tires flat" feel.

Terrible Quality

2 out of 3 of these tubes failed immediately or very early in their expected lifespans. They failed at seams near the valve stem. Never again.

BikeTiresDirect gets 5 stars - they replaced the first tube the blew out. I'm not even going to bother with the second because I no longer trust these.

Supple and nice!

These tubes are well made and I've found them to be quite durable. Ride quality is nearly as smooth as tubeless. I have them in the larger size for 32mm tires and I run them at 60lbs, so I haven't had to pump them up every day like the 110lb folks. Every few days a couple of pumps and we're good to go.

Light but fragile

I used it for 100 miles and was happy with the weight reduction. Then moved the tire and tube to a different wheel. The tube had developed some brittle spots where it expanded into spoke-hole divots in the first rim. One of these quickly developed a crack rendering the tube useless. Won't buy again, but if you're the type who never moves tires around the weight drop is nice.

Like butter

Since these were on sale, I bought them to satisfy my curiosity. They are wonderful. I was scared I would immediately have flats, but not so far. I air up my tires for every ride anyway, so the criticism that they lose air quickly doesn't matter to me.

To each its own

I am not sure if I can tell the difference in ride quality but I do like the pink color. It is much easier to see if you are pinching your tube when it is pink. I like the fact that it is light but not that much lighter than the Michelin tubes that I was using.

Love these latex tubes

I know some don't like latex tubes. For me these have been a god-send. I reduced my flat frequency to basically zero once I got these and the rolling resistance is obviously lower (perceptibly so). Running them in Conti GP 4000 SIIs on both road bikes I ride. I was getting many more flats on the same roads with butyl tubes - so surprisingly latex ends up more comfortable, faster, and cheaper to operate than butyl. Not to mention getting to avoid roadside tube changes. Yes, you got to pump before every ride, but to me that's worth it to not flat.

Latex tubes are great

I have been using latex tubes for years.

They make the ride much smoother.

I believe they are less prone to flats.

They are easy to install just like any other tube.

Yes you must pump up with air before any ride just like any other tube.

They are more expensive than regular tubes but they are worth it.

BIKETIRESDIRECT gives you a discount on multiple purchases. However I am hoping prices drop when more people go to these tubes.

Great stuff, just need to be careful when installing.

No flats after more than 2000 miles on both front and rear tubes... I pinched one while installing and patched it. It�s still rolling...

Bike tires direct was lowest price by far.

Nice Riding Tubes

This is my second set of latex tubes, they work great with the Conti 4000 tires I have. The last set was a different brand which also worked well. With those I had two flats, both caused by my rim, slipped rim strip in one case and the other by a small hole in the rim covered by a sticker which gave way when I replaced the rim strip with Veloplugs. I was able to repair both holes with standard tube patches, however the holes are impossible to find roadside without a tank of water to put the tube into. The tubes get stretched out over time and need to be replaced probably annually, or when you replace your tires if you avoid flats. The ride is worth it though.

Smoother ride and more fun

Vittoria latex tubes are a quick and relatively cheap way to improve your bike's ride quality. Paired with a high thread count tire, the setup feels close to tubulars. Latex also reduces tires' rolling resistance, so you theoretically should get a little more speed for your power vs. butyl tubes. The latex tubes do bleed a little air overnight, so they're not great for commuting,. But if you want to spice up your racing or fun bike, these will do it.

Feels softer than Michelin latex, weight about the same, Michelin flatted on install, these are rolling.

I use these on my Cannondale CAAD 10 with Zipp 202 Firecrest clincher wheels. I figured it was down to Michelin's or these. One Michelin flatted on install. I'm using the 24-28mm tubes with my 23mm Continental 4000S II's, and they feel great. Only 8g. difference between 19-23mm (70g) and 24-28mm (78g) tubes. Michelin 23mm were 80g. I weigh 145, these feel great with only 90 psi, but feel slow, fill to 115 min for speed. Always a trade off, comfort or speed, take your pick, but you can do both with these tubes.
