The ultra-lightweight Vredestein Race Latex Road Tube is compatible with 700c x 20-25mm tires (20/25-622 ISO). Available with a 36mm or 48mm smooth Presta valve (removable valve core) only. Just 49 grams. Latex tubes do not hold pressure as long as butyl tubes, so you will need to pump up your tires before each ride.

Note: Vredestein measures and labels their valves by including the valve core and needle, so the actual length of the valve shaft may be shorter than marked on the box. We have described the valve lengths to better represent their true lengths. Please keep this in mind when ordering.

 

Application: Road Racing 

 

Tube Type: Latex 

 

Valve Stem: 48 mm Presta 

 

ISO (ETRTO) Size: 18/25-622 mm

I guess I missed the other reviews and purchased a couple of these latex tubes for my race wheels. Turns out that the stem is not 48mm, but rather 60mm! Counter to WesternBikeWorks' reply to another review, stem length is important with disc and HED3 wheels where the value opening is about 60mm that makes these tubes useless for my race wheels. I may just use them for my training wheels. Still disappointing as I specifically purchased these tubes for the 48mm stem.

Smooth out the road ahead with Latex.

After making the switch from the butyl to latex rubber it was a noticeable difference in ride quality. The latex is also much lighter in weight which has advantages. No increase in flats over butyl but I would imagine the latex would not offer a durability advantage of the butyl rubber. I use the latex tubes on race day only with a race wheel set and tires. Not worth the flat risk on training rides.

Superior tube - removable valve cores are a plus for my deep carbon clinchers, making these tubes great for both low profile wheels and deep profile wheels. Over 1000 miles on the without a flat, or any issues. Best tube and a great price at Westernbikeworks -)

Good lightweight tube

To the best of my knowledge this (along with Continental Supersonic) is the lightest road tube you can buy. The light weight is appreciated, however I haven't been able to discern any change in supplenessride quality compared to lightweight butyl tubes. They appear and feel fragile, but I haven't had a single problem or flat yet in nearly a thousand miles of PNW winter riding. I did use an abundance of caution in mounting them (extra talc, very careful alignment, inflate to 30ish psi then deflate before inflating all the way). I had to remove the rear tire and tube when I broke a spoke, and the tube looked horrible (discolored and uneven stretching) but I remounted and it's still working just fine. Also, I am using them in 25mm Schwalbe tires with no problems even though I was a little concerned since other retailers are selling what I believe to be the exact same tube, but recommending a max 23mm tire width.
