Description

Race on clinchers.

If you're like us, you find comfort on the middle path; far away from the polarities of the cycling world. To us, lightweight clinchers epitomize this ideology, and we applaud your choice of race wheels that can double as a training set. Your tubes should reflect this duality by providing both durable, puncture-resistance and a weight-savings that you can feel on race-day. Easier said than done. However, the Continental Race Light Tube meets both criteria. By strategically shaving 19g off of the Race Tube, the Race Light Tube will keep your rotational weight down without sacrificing the ability to defy the attacks of debris.

The Continental Race Light Tube is available in a 700c x 18-25mm size with the option of either a 42 or 60mm Presta valve. For your classic build, it's also being offered in a 27in x 1-3/4in size.

Do these tubes have a removable valve core?

Responded on

Hello,
Yes, these tubes do have a removable valve core.
If you have any other questions or if there is anything else you need, please let us know.

Great News!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Note: These tubes feature removable valve cores. Great for adding slime or stem extensions.
On some websites cyclists are complaining that when using a screw on pump the removable valve core shoots off the stem when they unscrew the pump. That's because when installing the tube (fresh out of the box) the removable core is factory installed only finger tight. You will need a 4.5 mm metric wrench (or presta valve core tool) to tighten the core for the first time. This will allow for your plastic valve cap, or your screw on pump to be taken off your stem without the core flying off.
NOTE: When tightening the core in the stem, hold the stem firmly and be careful not to twist or damage the stem base connection to the tube.
Ride Safe . . Have Fun

Mmmmm, Bit disappointed

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The tubes run well in the tire, but I have to admit, that they have been a little fragile when changing them out. Ive ripped a couple when doing so, and that very well might be how Im changing the tubes out, but I have never had that problem before and Ive change many tubes BUT.... they do run well for a clincher wheel

New tubes

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

While replacing my tires figured I'd swap the tubes as well. Lighter than what I was using before. Like the yellow caps too

Great tubes

These are a bit lighter than some other brands, though probably not by a huge margin. They do have removable valve cores, which is not that common. You can use a sealant like Stans in tubes too. Your tire may still flat, but you might only have to re-inflate rather than replace the tube. I have also bent the little core stem on other tubes and had to replace the whole tube. Could have just replace the core on these. I find they hold pressure pretty well, maybe a loss of 10psi or so over a few days. You should check your tire pressure before every ride anyway.

I don't understand why removable valve core is not an automatically listed attribute. Also the only types you can use with valve extenders
