Silca Latex Inner Tube With Extender & Speed Shield
Silca bring you the ultimate in high-performance inner tubes. Why Latex?  Compared to standard bicycle inner tubes which are made of butyl rubber, Latex is significantly more elastic (10x elongation compared to 2-3x), but more importantly, Latex Rubber has significantly lower coefficient of damping which means that when latex rubber is stretched or flexed, it returns to shape faster and with fewer energy losses.
What does this mean for an inner tube?  Latex inner tubes are generally 2-5 Watts (per tyre) more efficient at 30mph than tubes made of other materials, are harder to pinch-flat, and offer superior suppleness and road feel, especially when combined with supple, low rolling resistance tyre.
This tube has been sized to fit tires measuring 24-30mm, which will equate to 23-28mm tyres used on modern wider rims.  Valve stem length is 42mm and will work in all modern disc wheels.
Inner Tube Features
  • Premium Latex
  • Optimised for tires measuring: 24-30MM (Tires marked 22-28mm when used on wide rims, or tyres marked 24-30mm used on older narrow rims)
  • 42mm valve stem, works in all modern disc wheels
  • Removable Presta valve core
  • 85 grams
Extender & Speed Sheild Features
  • High precision CNC machined Aluminum Valve Extenders with full external threads
  • Ideal valve extender for use on Carbon Rims
  • Compatible with both Tubeless AND Standard RVC valve stems
  • Less than half the weight of brass valve extenders
  • SpeedShield Improves wheel aerodynamics up to 0.5 Watts at 30mph
  • Spherical nut eliminates bending forces on valve stem for improved strength
  • Silences Valve Rattle in Deep Carbon Rims while protecting carbon rim surfaces
Mr JohnstonVery good indeed! Light of course and no issues with punctures that I half expected. Air loss is not that bad at all either. Nice that it comes with the speedshield.
Mr WoodmanMakes a big difference and the speed shield is very useful for protecting the valve area when pumping up
Mr VoukelatosVery good quality of inner tube. From the first rode I feel the rolling resistance difference compare with normal tubes. Highly recommend.
