The Inner Tube That Truly Holds Its Breath
The Schwalbe Air Plus delivers four big advantages over conventional inner tubes.
Higher Air Retention
Due to the high proportion of pure butyl rubber, the Schwalbe Air Plus tube retains air significantly longer than conventional bicycle tubes. Therefore you have to inflate less often.
More Puncture Protection
With around 70% greater wall thickness, the Schwalbe Air Plus is particularly robust - and so it's well protected against pinch and penetrating punctures.
Better For The Planet, Better For You
If the Schwalbe Air Plus ever needs to be replaced, it is — like all other Schwalbe tubes — 100% recyclable.
Ideal For E-Bikes & Cargo Bikes
The Schwalbe Air Plus bicycle tube is made for any cyclist who simply wants to cycle and inflate less often. Thanks to its properties it is particularly suitable for bicycles that carry heavier loads.
- Available in six standard sizes, from 20 to 29 inches
- Approximately 70% higher wall thickness
- High proportion of pure butyl rubber
- High pressure stable valve seal
- 100% recyclable

If it lasts a long time and continues to hold rideable tire pressure for a couple of weeks between pump-ups, I'll give it 5 stars
