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.

Good tubes - ride different

I'd never tried latex tubes before, but am using these with Vittoria Corsa tires and my Cannondale SuperSix frame, and have found them to ride differently than the typical butyl tube. A little more bounce, absorb shock well. I would recommend riders try these. The ride feel is different, not neccesarily better. And, be ready to pump them up each time you ride. They lose PSI overnight.

Best way to improve clincher tire ride

I installed the 25-28 versions in Schwalbe Ones, 25mm. They just fit, although they will seem too big when you first put them in. The good thing about doing it this is way that they are not stretched, so they have room to give, which helps prevent punctures.

They make for a noticibly smoother ride, and you can even use slightly lower pressures, which helps, of course.

I am a former pro mechanic and would recommend latex always. If done correctly, it is always better.

The problem I find is sourcing high quality latex tubes like these Vittoria, in larger sizes, for 28-32, or larger.

Bike Tire Direct, if you find such tubes, I will buy them from you.

Great Tubes Require Daily Pressure Checking

If you can catch these tubes on sale, they are a fantastic deal! Very fast with my Vittoria Corsa Speed G tires. I have yet to have a flat. although I tend to look for clean roads to ride. Definitely a must for TT courses!

Great ride, but not durable

I am a big fan of latex inner tubes. I used (and still do) to ride Italian-made Vittoria tubulars and the only way to get ride quality even remotely resembling that with modern clinchers is to use latex inner tubes. These Vittoria latex tubes do provide nice ride feel, but they are not durable. Something is funky with the formulation of the latex rubber. The part of the tube that comes in contact with the rim tapestrip weakens over time, eventually leading to spontaneous failure. This has happened to me repeated and to my buddies who bought the tubes based on my initial recommendation. I do not have the same problem with the Vredestein brand latex tubes (they have other issues). My guess is that these latext inner tubes are exactly the same ones they put inside their tubulars. In a tubular tire, however, the latex is not exposed to rim tapestrip and therefore will not have the same problem. If these latex tubes are to be sold for use with clincher tires, Vittoria needs to test their formulation a bit more.

Comfy ride

Running latex created a very different feel in my bike's ride quality and handling. I paired these with a 320 TPI tire, and I'd agree with others who say this is combo is very close to a tubular setup...Latex tubes do slowly bleed air, but not dramatically. You should always check tire pressure before riding, and you may find that you need to top off the latex tubes by 5-10 PSI every 1-2 days.

For Century rides they can't be beat

I know this sounds strange when everyone else is talking about using them for racing, but I switched two years ago and they've become my everyday tube. First I've never had a flat since switching over. Even when I decided to replace a Vittoria tire due to mulitple deep cuts, the tube was still fine and went into the new tire. Most importantly on 100 mile rides with 25mm tires they make a huge difference in comfort, I can run a little less air without fear of a pinch flat and not feel all beat up from hours of riding over broken asphalt (the comfort thing is just part of getting older but I still ride at a strenuous pace, I'm not a leisure rider)

Yes they lose air quickly and I have had a valve stem tear away, but I've had that happen a couple of times with Continental butyl tubes. Lastly, I do carry a butyl tube in case I ever do get a flat as it would be easy to install on the side of the road.

For me they've really been worth the money as I haven't had to buy them far less often that butyl tubes.

Fragile, but smooth ride and low rolling resistance

These are top latex tubes. They share the pros and cons of all latex tubes. They leak air faster than butyl tubes, so one has to make sure that the tires are re-inflated every time they are used. They are not as resistant to puncture as butyl. But they are much lighter and the smoothness of the ride is unmistakable plus they also have lower rolling resistance, which makes them ideal for race day. They are patchable, although the process is not as easy as with butyl. A patch can be cut out of old latex gloves (biology labs and physician's offices discard tons of these everyday).

Love these tubes

I love latex tubes in my Vittoria tires. I've tried some other, lighter latex tubes but had reliability problems. These are a little heavier, but they are reliable and don't sacrifice the great feeling of a latex tube. I pair mine with Vittoria Pave's or Open Corsa CX for the closest feeling to riding a tubular I have found. (A little bit less so with the Pave's, but with Open Corsa CX and a latex tube wow! Simply a great tire/tube combo. Fast, grippy, with great road feel. I love 'em.

Smooth, but leaky

Latex inner-tubes reduce rolling resistance and are also lighter than butyl ones. They are also more fragile when mounting a tire and it is more difficult (but not impossible) to patch them. Also, they leak air out much faster than a butyl inner-tube. You definitely have to put some air in before every ride. For all these reasons, I train on butyl inner-tubes, but put these Vittoria latex ones on race days. But the ride on latex is definitely worth the additional price. Smooooooth!

I use these tubes primarily for racing. It is a nice change to put these in with race specific tires. Whether placebo effect or not, they definitely feel like they roll better than a butyl tube!

Wow, what an improvement!

I rode latex tubes on my mtn bike for 4 years on very technical and rocky terrain. We rode quite fast, with long, vicious downhills, and I only put in 22 lbs of air - I got 4 years and thousands of miles out of 1 single set of these tubes and not a single flat!!!

Fast forward to now, and my mtn bike experience made it an easy decision to put latex tubes on my carbon road bike. Like nearly all the other reviewers, I noticed a significant improvement in ride quality over butyl tubes, I saved about 1 ounce per rim, and I have yet to get a flat after 15 months and more than 3,000 miles of rides on poorly maintained city and country roads. Truth in advertising: I weigh 145 lbs.

So I'm not a heavyweight, but my cousin is a Clydesdale for sure. He checks in at 6'2 and 225 lbs, and he would get at least one flat EVERY ride we took, what a pain! A few months after I got my latex tubes, he made the switch and rode flat-free for 10 months before getting a flat from a pot-hole. Needless to say, he's a convert too, in fact, our whole 90-person cycling club is going to make the switch.

Talk them up and lay down the miles!

It's an okay tube, it does ride very smooth. However it loses pressure after about 3 days, so I'm constantly pumping it back up.

a no brainer when riding high end clinchers, latex tubes are a must

it's not a myth, it's a fact. latex tubes paired with high tpi count clinchers enhance the ride experience. gotta say, not all latex tubes are made equal. vittoria tubes are reliable and deliver the goods. i have total confidence in them.

The best latex tube better than Michelin

The best latex tube bar none. Far superior quality to Michelin in both the latex material and valve sturdiness. In combination with Veloflex tires or Vittoria open corsa it's the greatest ride quality comparable to a tubular.

Good quality latex tubes

Tried these after numerous failures with Michelin latex tubes. So far so good. All Michelins that I bought for the same or higher price failed where the tube is spliced together. They overlap a short section and at the end of the overlap they would get a tear, as if weakened by the joining process. Has not happened yet with the Vittorias. These are quite thin. I have run in CX tires but not sure if they would be good in larger sizes. Nice valve stems.
