Continental Light 42mm Presta Valve Tube
- These Conti’s are great – the presta valve does not stick (as in some cheaper tubes), they are easy to “pre-inflate” when changing a tire and they last.
- I’m into endurance cycling and ride about 165 miles a week on all types of roads, including gravel.
- Your tube’s ability to resist punctures depends greatly on the quality of the tires that encases it.
- I’d rather make up the extra weight of a bullet proof tire on a quality light tube than spend my time changing one on the side of the road in 100° heat.
- Biggest risk of a flat with these is going to be a pinch if you are running lower air pressures otherwise, a very dependable tube.
- Continental’s website shows these Race 28 Lights should weigh 60g, but they’re definitely heavier than 60g.
- I had an old set of Kenda tubes that weighed 88g, and I see a lot of comparable tubes in this size range weigh about the same with exceptions for latex or super light tubes.
- I was having issues with a less expensive tube brand and needed something that would hold up to the horrible road conditions in the Northeast.
- These have lasted longer riding the same roads with the the same tires/wheels.
- I have not gotten a pinch flat since I switched the Continentals.
- One thing i like is that the rubber doesn’t stick together as you unroll them.
- They seem to have a powder or film that keeps them from sticking.
- I think this helps keep them from sticking to the tire during road side repairs.
- Actually they are the most protective lights I have ever ridden on, and when a rider does suffer a flat, they are very compatible with glue and patch kits.
- I road on one tube which had suffered three flats with glued on patches for over a thousand miles of riding until a chunk of jagged marble countertop pierced through my gatorskin tire and gashed it big time!
- Made the mistake of buying a pair of cheap tubes at a bicycle shop at an out of town race and the cheap tube lasted no time at all.
- They are light weight and fold up nicely in a saddle pack.
- I really like the smooth stem which makes getting the pump off very easy.
- I ride Continental 4000S tires which I think protect them very well.
- You can get cheaper tubes, but these are worth the bit extra in my opinion, especially if you shop around or get them on sale.
- When you unscrew the plastic valve cover the entire valve assembly unscrews .
- And the tube exploded on the first time I tried to pump air.
- Conti makes a reliable, fairly puncture-resistant tube.
Continental Light 60mm Presta Valve Tube
- If you’re running high-end race tires on lightweight wheels, the Continental Race Light Tube completes the trifecta.
- It’s for road bike, and it fits 700×18-25cc, presta valve.
- Continental tubes are nice and thin so they are easier to install than some of the more generic brand tubes.
- I’ve had nothing but good luck using these and think they’re worth the extra bucks.
- Besides the weight it’s hard to tell if it was worth spending the extra money.
- I tried using cheaper alternatives for my spares but they didn’t last long.
- While I find I have to be more conscious of pinches when installing the lights as long as I pay attention I’ve had no issues.
- I think these tubes are great, BUT the quality control is, ahem, somewhat lacking.
- I bought two of these and both tubes blew out when inflating for the first time (80 psi)!
- Both went on without any problem but within minutes of pumping to 100psi, one let go!
