Why We Like The Tubo Road Tube
Light, strong, and compact are all features we like in a road tube. The Tubo Road Tube scores high in all three categories, saving almost 70g of weight per wheel compared to a standard butyl tube and is 2x more resistant to punctures with double the strength. This versatile tire is available in 42mm and 60mm valve length options, fits 18mm to 28mm tires, and is compatible with both rim and disc brakes.

I have these on 3 bikes and as a spare for a gravel race bike that runs tubeless. I do a lot of big mountains and I like the low weight. Puncture far less than rubber. I live in an agricultural area and metal is everywhere. A downside is that a patch requires 30 minutes to cure. But the patches hold. Over 5 years and thousands of miles I've patched some 2 or 3 times and use as spares. No patch has ever failed.

- I've used it several times
As a self-professed weight weenie, I enthusiastically swap out bits and pieces on my bikes for lighter and/or more exotic ones...which is why I so excited to try these tubes. Gram for gram, particularly for rotating mass, these seemed like a great upgrade. I purchased two tubes and a 5 patch kit, and six rides later I am out of patches and neither tube will hold air for long enough to be useful. Perhaps the most frustrating thing with these tubes is that they WILL hold air for hours when testing for leaks, but put them in a tire and go for a ride and within an hour they will randomly lose air. Incredibly frustrating, as there is no possible way to locate and patch such a slow leak when out on the road...not that the patches seem to reliably hold anyway. Gave them two stars because the are definitely lightweight, very compact, and they seem to hold air reasonably well until patched for the first time.
