A Compact, Lightweight Tube Designed For MTBs
The Scorpion SmarTUBE is a mountain bike-specific inner tube that blends the innovative features of TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane) — a specific formulation for the riders looking for the best balance between puncture protection, weight, and volume.
The SmarTUBE is a one-of-a-kind inner tube: low weight and volume are combined with a high level of reliability. These qualities are not present in an equivalent butyl tube.
It is the perfect solution for marathon racers and trail riders who are looking for a lightweight, resistant, and compact spare tube.
- The folded-up volume of the SmarTUBE is up to 50% less than an equivalent butyl tube
- Made of TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane)
- Easily stored in a back pocket or strapped to the frame
- Availiable in 27.5" & 29" wheel sizes
- Weights: 75g for the 29" & 95g for the 27.5"
- Not compatible with rim brakes
