Fast and smooth.

Michelin brings these superb Aircomp Ultralight Presta Tubes from France. They're a fantastic choice for lightweight builds if you'd prefer butyl over latex inner tubes. Where latex is permeable enough to require you to reach for your floor pump nearly every ride, butyl rubber is far more airtight. And that these Michelin Aircomp Ultralight Tubes tickle the scales at less than 80 grams while still offering the durability you want out on the open road is a big plus. They're available in your choice of valve length -- 40mm, 52mm or 60mm.

  • More airtight than latex
  • Lightweight
  • Durable
  • Three stem lengths

Looking for better than these.

    I like the smooth valve stems. That's about it. Had one split on the [very pronounced] seam right after installing it. Could be that 25C tires may be extending the size range a bit too far? These tubes do seem a bit sloppy though. Mavic tubes that came with a set of wheels are very clean and almost seamless. They also have nice black, smooth valves that look nice and are easy to inflate. C.C. does not carry the Mavic tubes in sizes that I need. Latex tubes are a pain, [Costly, Leaky, valve lengths, cannot patch them.] I have some Panaracer R-Air tubes on order and will give them a try when they come in. I would really like to find a good all-around tube. It seems that such a thing does not exist.

    Excellent Inner Tubes

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I run these Tubes on my ZIPP 303’s excellent Inner tubes. I’m very happy with my purchase Thank you Competitive Cyclist for advising me on purchasing these tubes

    good but pricey

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    really they have not felt any better than any other tube I have used. They work just fine and I have not had more or less punctures nor have they deflated any faster than a standard rubber q tube.

    These say they are for 18-23mm sizes / Will these work with a HED Ardennes Plus SL fitted with a 25mm tire (which swells to maybe 27-28)?

    Howard,



    Using these with 25mm tires and wide wheels will open yourself up to problems. It may work but is not ideal. Any benefit from these awesome tubes will be negated by flat problems.

    Has anyone used these with 25mm tires?

    Best Answer

    You should be just fine to use these tubes with 25mm tires.

    Hey Matt, thanks for your answer.



    I actually went ahead and I tried this tube with 25mm tires(GP 4000S II). I have about 50 miles with the tube, so far so good!

    It is a good tube

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Have used these for many years. I appreciate the non-threaded, smooth valve stems (more aero? haha). They weigh in just fine. Never had any issues.

    I like em.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Consistent high quality. Non-threaded stem. Light weight. 75 gm actual for 40mm stems for the most recent ones I got. Compact in the saddle bag or jersey pocket. Not significantly more prone to flatting than heavier tubes IMO. I wish they still made them with 35mm stems. They usually have nickle plated stems but I have gotten some with plain brass (as in the current picture), which turns dark and mottled. Nickle is nicer.

    good tube

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These are good tubes-dependable with 3 different size options. They pack very easily in a saddle bag as well.

    Decent if you need a Long Stem

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    The biggest advantage to these tubes is that they come in a 60mm stem length. This means if you have deep v wheels or aero spokes it should provide enough length to be able to put air into the tube! Decent tube but I have had better luck with Vittoria's tubes.

    Weighs more than they say...

      Granted I have the 60mm valve length the weight comes in at 82g.

      May seem insignificant bu when you are playing the weight game with bikes and you are getting to the point of paying 1$ per gram saved then it may be a little more susbstantial. Operationally I have had no issues.

      What size tube do I need for my SRAM 60...

      What size tube do I need for my SRAM 60 wheels? 700x23 but I guess I need an extended stem length .......?

      I use 80mm. I guess 70mm is good, too.

      Are you going to stock these tubes again?...

      Are you going to stock these tubes again? These are the only ones I'll buy, and I'd rather buy from you guys than some other outfit.

      Highly Recommended

        I love these tubes. What originally sold me on them was the non-threaded stem. I prefer the smooth exterior of this stem for my Silca floor pump. The air chuck will hang on to a threaded stem and sometimes pull the stem out of the tube.
