Strengths:    slightly lighter than Nokian downhill tube

More stretch than Nokian tube


Weaknesses:    build quality

I was pumping it to round before installing the new tube when I felt a bit of wind on my arm. The tube had a section about 1cm long that was supper thin with a small hole near one end of the thin section.


Bottom Line:   
It looked promising but the tube turned out to be faulty. I didn't even get the wrinkles out and it was leaking air.

This was the first tube I have ever inflated to find it had a hole before I have even ridden it. I could patch it but I would rather trade it for a new one which I can inflate and check for thin areas.


I am giving 4 chilis for value since it was fairly inexpensive for a wide tube, but only 1 chili overall because it failed to preform its one and only task, hold air.
