Strengths:    Nothing

Weaknesses:    Lots of flats because of the same reason: seam splits!

Bottom Line:   
Unless you are using it in a trainer, don't buy it! It's going to screw up your ride during a long ride in the heat! Piece of junk!

Got a flat in the rear tire 3 days and 150K after installation. The seam split. Replaced both with Axiom. Horrible product. If you have these on your new bike, change them immediately.

Strengths:    if you're not very good at changing tires, these will give you lots and lots of practice.

Weaknesses:    they don't hold air. this is a tube's SOLE FUNCTION. This is like a boat that doesn't float or a plane that doesn't fly.

Bottom Line:   
I have tried these tubes 3 times now, because, inexplicably, they are the only ones my LBS sells. On no occasion have these tubes held air for more than 24 hours, and I'm running them in Kenda tires! Thought it was my rim or my riding style or my terrain or in some way my fault, because it is absolutely inconceivable that a product this terrible would actually be marketed by a company of this reputation, but nope. I bought a whole mess of tubes from nashbar for less than $4 each and all but two of them are still sitting in my closet...because the two that i installed are still holding air several months and several hundred miles later.

Strengths:    NONE!

Weaknesses:    Everything. These tubes came with the bike I just bought, I've only ridden a few times - boom, flat. Patched and aired up - didn't even ride - another flat, fixed that - aired up - another flat. TERRIBLE TUBES. Going to review which tubes are better to have than these. I wouldn't use these tubes if I was sponsored by Kenda.

Bottom Line:   
SH to the ITTY!

Weaknesses:    I bought a new Mongoose Renegade 26 inch mountain bike. On the second ride, the real tube lost air. A test in water shows an invisible tiny leaking on the Kenda tube.

Date Reviewed: May 16, 2004

Strengths:    they are light

Weaknesses:    weakest thing ever, i could make a better tube from paper and glue

Bottom Line:   
crap, the only thing that is good is that they are light, but that makes no sence if they pop like gum. I have rid on theese for 6 days, and i got a flat on both tires! Unless you are stupid or theese came on your bike, they should never be inside your tire.

Date Reviewed: May 1, 2004

Strengths:    None

Weaknesses:    Popped on my second ride

Bottom Line:   
I was riding down an include and went over a rock. The rock was not sharp, nor did I hit it that hard. The tube popped right away.

I weigh 185 and have a rockshock duke fork (set on the softest setting). The fact is: The tube should not have popped.

These tubes are junk.

Strengths:    The tubes are very lightweight. The long valves are bonus when used with certain rims. Nicely packaged in twos. The way they are rolled is perfect for carring in a backpack.

Weaknesses:    Haven't found a problem yet.

Bottom Line:   
Good tube, great price, awesome weight. Exactly what a tube should be.

Date Reviewed: June 17, 2001

Strengths:    None. These things are junk. They are a good value, but cheap junk is still junk.

Weaknesses:    They lack the ability to hold air, which believe it or not is the main function of a tube.

Bottom Line:   
I purchased two Kenda tubes, put them on my bike, and filled them to 90 psi. The next day they had between 45 - 60 psi in them. So...I purchased two more Kenda tubes at a different bike shop, put them on, and the next morning they contained about 60 psi. It's a good thing Kenda doesn't make condoms.
