light and packs tight

    I use this as my spare tube in my saddle bag. It is light and packs in tightly. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to bring along that spare flat insurance, yet stay minimal on the weight!

    Great Tube

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Continental is the only company I use when it comes to the rubber on my bike. These tubes last and are easy to repair should you get a puncture. I highly recommend these tubes.

    dont let "race" scare you off

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    i bought these because they were on sale but was a little hesitant thinking that they would be thin and not as protective but they have held up very well through spring riding.

    Ol' Reliable

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Good solid tube with a bit more to it than the "Race Light" designation. When weight isn't a concern, these are as solid as they come.

    Great all around tubes.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These lightweight tubes are very durable with removable cores at a good price... what else can you ask for.

    Great tubes

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These tubes are light, simple and are a good bargain. I rarely flat and I'm assuming that these tubes are part of that luck.

    Great tubes for any use.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I use these tubes whether I'm racing or riding with my friends. I've used continental's tubes since I've been riding on the road and they have proved durable in any road or weather conditions. I will continue to buy these tubes.

    Best value for tubes around

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    these tubes are great. the right stem length and removable cores in case that is important to you. I know it is just a tube, but conti makes them good consistently.

    Greatest Invention of All Time!?

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Amazing. Keeps air in the tire and holds pressure while you're riding!!! I wish I had invented these.

    These Tubes are Garbage

      Sorry, nothing good to say about these Continental tubes, I recently purchased 3. The first two both held air until the stress of riding, the first went flat after 15 miles, the second went flat after 8 miles. Both developed holes on a seam opposite the valve. Not even going to try using the third one.

      Sorry for your experiences ! Have 3500 miles on mine . The best tube for the money .

      where are these tubes made?

      where are these tubes made?

      John,



      Most of the tubes made are manufactured in China, Malaysia, Indonesia, Taiwan, and various other places. They are good tubes and I have never had a problem with them, if you need any more help or you have any other questions about anything else you can contact me directly at ececala@backcountry.com



      Thanks,

      Enrico

      The ones I have of this specific model are made in China and were ordered last year. This is a higher quality tube than most regardless of the country of origin. I feel this is a better tube for the money than Maxxis, Kenda, Giant, Bontrager or Specialized at this price point. Good seams and very consistent fitment, plus a very good valve.

      Light and solid

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I have been using these tubes since I started commuting daily, and I am very happy with how well they work. The stem is very sturdy and does not torque and break under pressure like cheaper tubes, and the powder coating ensures that you are experiencing minimal tubular resistance due to the tube getting stuck.

      Whatever tube you use, you should always sprinkle talcum powder on it before installing. I even carry my spare in the saddle bag coated with powder and wrapped in a bandanna-makes installation out on the road much easier.

      Best tube for road use

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This is absolutely the best tube for lightweight clinchers if you want to keep weight down. I've been using for a couple of years and had no manufacturing flaws. It's thinner than most so you get a little air seepage, but you should pump up before each ride anyway.

      Awesome

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Note: These tubes feature removable valve cores.

      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
