The Continental Road Race tubes are a high quality product for road cycling both training and racing. I use them with my Continental Grand Prix 4000 S II tires. One of the best things about the tubes is that they come in a variety of stem lengths. I have two sets of deep rim carbon fiber wheels on my road bikes and being able to get the longer stem is a key feature of this product. The tubes are long lasting and are great when paired with almost any wheel tire combination you have. Highly recommended.
These tubes always prove to be reliable and lightweight. I would recommend something thickerheftier for rough roads or serious commuting, but that's only because that use isn't really what these tubes are intended for.
I used to buy the cheapest tubes but after buying these a few years ago I never looked back. For my type of road riding (back country road), they hold up better than what I used in the past. I highly recommend these tubes over others.
I purchased the long stem tubes. The tubes are high quality and fit well into the well of the tire. The valve insert will come out if your pump grips it as mine did. I finally put an adapter on the valve stem and that seemed to do the trick - not ideal if you have to change a flat on the side of the road.
This is a super lightweight tube with really thin walls. I tore it on the install so I cannot review its durability if one were to succeed in installing it. I will say that I have installed plenty of other tubes without incident, so while it could have just been bad luck, I'm sure this was not the first time I've caught some of a tube with my tire lever. I won't be trying again with this tube.
This is my go-to inner tube. It's not too heavy, a good compromise between strength and performance.
The seams are not raised like some, so it's easier to patch. A note of caution Be sure the removable valve core is properly seated. We were bothered by a slow leak from a slightly loose core. The price from BTD is always good.
Not much to say, it is a bicycle tube. It is not puncture proof and won't prevent a pinch flat if you don't install it properly. All that being said, it is a very good tube and a good value for the money. I carry an extra one and when I get a flat I check to make sure what caused it is still not in the tire, put the new tube in, inflate it and continue with my ride. I have NEVER had a problem with one of these that was quality related so that's a big plus to me.
As I mentioned, these tubes are light, fast, and as puncture-proof as any light latex tube can be.
Pleasantly very surprised, but after new Pro4 Endurance on the back and Power tires on the front, and using these tubes, I haven't had my usual flat every 2-3 weeks. These have changed my mind about all tubes being the same. Apparently not. Very impressed.
