Marginal Gains In A Minimal Package

You probably don't think much about the tubes you put inside your tires, but with Vittoria's Competition Latex Road Tubes, you'll have a slight advantage when it comes to speed. In testing, latex tubes are smooth enough to reduce rolling resistance by a few watts. And while a few watts may not seem like much, when you consider that switching to latex saves nearly 75g, the seemingly innocuous tube starts to make a dent in your results. The lighter tubes mean quicker accelerations and the lower rolling resistance means you'll stay at speed for longer. In addition to being faster, latex tubes are also more elastic to increase puncture resistance to pinch flats.

See? All that together makes a difference.

Features:

  • A cycling inner tube for race-day or everyday
  • Latex tubes are lighter and more supple than butyl
  • Removable valve cores for extenders and sealant
  • 48mm smooth Presta valves
  • Available in 700 x 19/24mm, 25/28mm, 30/38mm options

Perhaps I've written this review before, but I'll say it again that these tubes will bring a lively feel to your tired wheelset. Pairing these with a low rolling resistant tire will are the easiest cheapest energy savings you can find on the bike. Being careful during installation should go without saying. Don't be frightened off by their delicate reputation.

Ditch your rock-hard butyl tubes - these latex tubes sing like high-quality tubulars.

This is the cheapest and highest-impact improvement you can make on ride quality as long as you are willing to put a little air in your tires before you go out. A longtime user of latex-tubed sew-ups, I recently switched bikes and found myself on factory-issue clinchers. They rode like rocks. It's getting really hard to find tubular rims these days, so I did the next best (and cheaper) thing and got these latex tubes along with good-quality tires (Continental GP5000). Latex installs just like any other tube, there's nothing complicated here. And the difference is enormous. Yes, you will have to top up the pressure from day to day, that's just how latex works. But you'll never go back, guaranteed.

I bought these latex tubes after reading many of the reviews of the product. They are what all the reviews say they are. Light, supple and fragile. I got 667 miles out of the front tube before it went flat. On removal of the tube the hole was located at the base of the stem where the two ends of the tube are joined. After spending a few minutes inspecting the hole and the area around the hole, it looked like the tube may have been rubbing either on the rim tape or some irregularity in the wheel, even though I couldn't feel any irregularity that seemed sharp enough to cause the proble. The wheel is a DT Swiss R470db. I used an idea I got from the LBS some years ago and cut out a piece of butyl tube about 2.25 inches by 1 inch. I punched a hole in the piece and slide it over the stem to give that area of the tube a little more protection. Time will tell if this was a good fix or not. The last point about the tubes is Vittoria claims they may decrease the rolling resistance of the tire assemble by as much as 5.5 watts. Again this is something I can't personally verify but assuming it may be true, that works out to about $3.00 per watt of decreased rolling resistance. I think that is a bargain.

Bought these tubes to go with my Vittoria Corsa 2.0's and I haven't looked back. The only draw backs are that you must pump air into the tire daily. Since latex tires are pricey I buy in bulk to offset the sticker shock. Overall a good tube for your tires.

I switched to the Vittoria Latex road tubes a year ago and could not be happier. I have compared race butyl tubes to the Vitorria latex tubes in Vittoria Open Corsa and Veloflex Corsa Clinchers and in both cases I immediately felt the difference in ride quality and handling. The benefits of the tires quality construction and materials are maximized and noticeable the moment I put the latex tubes in. Most enjoyable thought is the supple ride feel, it's just so satisfying on the flats, downhill, as well as climbing. I have also put these in my Continental 4000 IIs tires which I was not happy with until I replaced the tubes. Compared to the other two tires, the Conti's are stiff and provided a much rougher ride, and I did not feel confident on a quick downhill turn but the switch to the latex tube has greatly improved ride quality as well as my confidence with the tire. Aside from one blowout from a chunk of glass in the center of the Conti, I have not had a flat in about 2000 miles.

Economical way to save watts

Vittoria claims these tubes can save in excess of 5watts per wheel. If that is true and the do feel faster than butyl tubes, then you can get one watt of energy savings for little more than $3 per watt. I can't think of a cheaper price for a watt saved.

The Vittoria Latex tube is a performance inner tube, best paired with supple performance clincher. I like the fact that there is no seam. You will need to add air before each ride, but that is a small inconvenience compared to the improved feel and performance achieved with this latex tube.

It maybe a placebo effect, but compared to the butyl it replaced, these latex tubes make it feel like I have a tail wind. I've maybe 400 miles on them now, on disc brake rims, with no troubles. I used lots of talc.

Love these tubes! Yes. You can feel the difference. Just a nicer feel than butyl tubes. And they have less rolling resistance. They loose air pressure more quickly, but they are NOT more delicate or more puncture prone than standard butyl tubes.

If you ride top level high thread count tires, latex tubes are the best bet to get the most out our your tire investment. They do lose air more rapidly between rides than butyl tubes but it's a small inconvenience compared to the benefits of a smooth supple ride. The higher price is the only downside but from a performance perspective they are 5 star tubes.

Noticable ride improvement over Butyl tubes.

Compared to butyl tubes these are lighter, better riding, and have improved puncture resistance. They do tend to leak air faster that butyl, so you need to top-off air each ride.

I got the larger size tube (28-32?) to fit my oversize tires and keep the tube from stretching too thin. Make sure the tube is all the way up in the tire before inflation to keep it from wanting to poke out of the tire when inflating to full pressure.

Seems sturdy and rides more comfortably than butyl.

Use Vittoria tires and the latex work better for me with mounting, tires go on hard and tubes easier to install properly.

The knock before I switched to latex was they dont hold air pressure over a longer period, check my pressure before every ride and run 110psi....no big deal
