Why We Like The S-Tubo Road Tube

Tubes are the first step in having a fun and safe ride, so we take our tubes seriously and install the Tubolito S-Tubo Road in our fast road wheels. The S-Tubo is only 23g, or about 75% lighter than our regular rubber tubes, and rolls much smoother. This tube is the closest we're getting to tubeless without the need for messy sealant and tubeless specific tires.


  • An ultra-light, ultra-compact road bike inner tube
  • Specifically designed to be carried as a spare
  • Packed size is 78% smaller than standard tubes
  • Offers comparable puncture resistance to standard tubes

I went to pump it up after I installed it and it popped right near the valve close to the seam where the plastic was thin. I want my money back.

Much better options

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

I have used vittoria and ridenow TPU tubes. These seem to be more difficult to install and don’t retain air at all. Put a pair on my bike. One held air for 24 hours the other went flat in 3 days. Bad product. Vittoria and ridenow are great and ridenow is very reasonably priced!!

S-Tubo Road tube 42mm valve, pair review

I've used it several times

Hmm, Guess I should have read better. The MTB S-Tubo apparently have removable stems, the "road" version clearly states it does not on the "tech details". I missed that, I run 404's that require a valve extender. I did actually unscrew the valve stem and use a extender, but I'm 100% I voided any warranty etc. in doing so. MY BAD. Having said that, I blew air in with my mouth, mounted everything and it was "easy", no problems. They seem to actually hold air better than my previous lightweight racing butyl tubes, so that's a positive. I haven't had a puncture, but that was never an issue for me, so I'm not a good judge of puncture protection. I'm not supposed to mount to "rim brakes" and ride hills, but per my infrared thermometer and testing, I haven't demonstrated any temperatures of concern for myself. I certainly cannot endorse, nor recommend, but I'm simply stating, I measured mine in my local area with a infrared thermometer after riding hills. I wasn't concerned with the data my thermometer provided to me, so I'll continue using. They are soft and the ride is nice in conti'5000's on zipp 404's with a standard carbon road bike. Happy riding, may your PR's seem easy and your chamois comfortable.
