Mr Arnold You can feel the ride quality improvment with a latex tube. These come in the 60mm lenght that is perfect for a 45mm rim.
John V Been using these for years. A great ride on my older clinchers.
Carboman Lighter than expected. Loses pressure after one day. Good rolling resistance.
Mr barella One failed before the TT, the other one worked well...
colin Never used latex tubes before. They do make a difference in ride and good for bigger riders with pinch flats
Mr Ryding These feel high quality, I have to top up my pressure weekly, but I am happy with them, Merlin’s service was great
Mr Lineham Light but durable tubes. These were replacements for existing tubes that are 4+ years old.
Mr Lopez Light weight and good puncture resistance but you just have to be prepared to pump your tyres up every day. Not a big deal with a track pump.
MARK Time and care needed in first fitting them but seem to be worth it as combined with Schwalbe One tyres the ride is smooth and fast, top them up before every ride which is no issue.
Mr Dominguez Once I made the change from butyl to latex this are the ones for me
Andy Add plenty of talc when fitting and no problems. Light weight and ride well. I’m a convert to latex tubes because of these.
ReesH Expensive as tubes go but worth it for the reduction in rolling resistance and plusher ride. Sound good too. Take care when fitting, like any latex tube they're easy to pinch if your tyres are tricky to get on the rim.
scott Haven't mounted these yet but they are extremely light.
Mr Pirsoomi Really light tube,durable, makes my ride a lot more easier and adds a huge amount to ride comfort! Fast delivery.
Joe P. Adds comfort to your ride. YES, you have to inflate daily. Comes with the territory. Wished it had replaceable valves.
Mr Bergsteinsson Excellent tubes . Yes you need to pump.them up every day. Just Excellent! !!
Jamie Fitted with GP Supersonic clinchers at 120psi for track training use. Expensive but worth it for the noticeable difference in compliance felt over a butyl tube.
Mr Keeley More fiddly to fit than butyl and you have to be more careful but good price.
A.M. Well made tubes which offer a little more road feel than the butyl tubes.
Cycling superhero I really felt the difference in rolling resistance and performance after changing to these... worth the value and totally recommended
Soo hyun Been using vittioria's latex tube for years, but quality is not that great, in terms of durability. Aircomp looks more durable but need to be tested. One down side is that you can't disassemble valve cores.
Mr Bergsteinsson Absolutely love these tubes. The sound they make is worth the price of admission. You save two watts per tube so that's a bonus and they`re lighter than regular tubes. One of mine weighed in at 82 grams. I am really glad Merlins is stocking these now! Yes you need to pump them up every day mine lose 20 psi in 24 hours but I still love these great tubes. Totally a cheap and cool upgrade!
Mr Jones Great inner tubes for racing, more puncture resistant than butyl and much faster when it comes to racing
Mr BIHARI +I guessed that is the best what is available beside of the pricey Silca tubes :( +Decent tube quality, I trust in Michelin rather than Vittoria/Geax. (+)Relatively thick. During 24 h pressure drops from 8 bar to 5,5 bar. --The valve core isn't removable. You cannot change it if the valve core is bended. You cannot inject sealant easily into it. - - -Have a freaky tendency to leaking air if start to tighten the cap until full turn in (the cores are actually not bended).
Rozza Used these for the last three-four years (Summer & Winter) with Conti 4000II S (23mm & 25mm). Extremely comfortable, very reliable and zero punctures in all that time. Make sure to order the correct valve length as the core is NOT removable. Oh, of course, being Latex don't forget to pump 'em up every ride - but you do that anyway don't you ;-)
Mr David The Michelin Aircomp Latex tubes are a good price and have valve lengths in just the right sizes - great latex tubes
Mr Lambert Decent set of latex tubes. Bought them for the 60mm valve. Heavier than some light butyl tubes, but still latex. All the air loss issues are known detractors of the tubes, but use these for my criterium wheel set, so am not bothered by having to pump them up from time to time.
andrew Great tubes for a really good price. Hard to find 60mm stem in latex so quite happy to have found these. Using with Zipp 303 and they work great.
Shaw Good quality tube which I use mostly for racing. They are a great inner tube.
Mr Larsson Fast rolling, good feel. A bit hard to fit.
Badger Lower rolling resistance at the cost of pumping tyres up each ride (which I did anyway with butyl tubes). Easy to repair with glueless patches, be careful when installing as easy to pinch flat with tyre lever. Fit fine in 700x25 mm tyre.
