Date Reviewed: April 29, 2007

Strengths:    No pinchflats, can run lower air pressure

Weaknesses:    HEAVY!!!!!!!

Bottom Line:   
WAY to heavy for my taste. I run reg tubes from performance 2.3-2.5 so much lighter. The key is once you find the right air pressure you dont need DH tubes.

Submitted by Jon Sillito a Weekend Warrior from Manchester, UK

Date Reviewed: April 21, 2006

Strengths:    REALLY think, hard as nails.

Weaknesses:    Heavy!

Bottom Line:   
Just took it out riding to test my new bashring, and have nailed it really hard off every square edge I can find. They were the kind of hits where I fully expected a burst tube/taco'd rim, but no, they still held up strong, and I was using Spesh DH tubes before! This is a MONSTROUS tube!

Date Reviewed: October 13, 2003

Strengths:    -No flats in 1 year
-do not lose air even if not use for a long time


Weaknesses:    - a bit heavy, but not an issue if you go DH

Bottom Line:   
Does it's job well.
I used it with 2.7 Mobsters and the combination lasted me a year of weekend riding. Although their a bit heavy for XC use(which is not its intended use).

Submitted by chris kerr a Downhiller from Wellington new zealand

Date Reviewed: June 20, 2003

Strengths:    * Tough
* Durable
* High pressure valves (thumbs up)
* BIG


Weaknesses:    * The valve on my rear tube split but i replaced with a higher quality one anyway so no love lost there.
* HEAVY AS A MOFO
* expensive
*


Bottom Line:   
A nice, heavy grunty tube i would recommend for anyone not on a budget, financial, weight or otherwise and who rides downhill like a speed demon. I recommend when you buy these, buy two spare valves just in case, the one on my back wheel serperated for no reason other than maxxis quality control.

Submitted by ivan a Downhiller from brooklyn

Date Reviewed: January 24, 2002

Strengths:    thick rubber

Weaknesses:    weight

Bottom Line:   
i'm not a weight weanie(usually), but if you run double wides, and gazza3.0, you start to noticethe extra weight.
i could ron 7 pounds of air in front, and 10 in the back, and do a 7 foot drop or slam my rear tore against a curb and nothing would happen, even tho sometimes i feel the tire hit the rim it still doesn't pinch flat, gazza's doublewides and these babies are a pefrect match for ant sick ba$tard like me or you, i give them five flamin' minkeys for their strength

Which is a better option in terms of runs and equipment rental for a 14 year old (and a 43 year old) with limited downhill ex ... Read More »

The atomic would be the much cheaper way to go but would the demo or session be that much of a better bike? A ... Read More »
