Strength:

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

Weakness:

* 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
*

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.

Similar Products Used: The only reason the IRC is here is because it is a tube, rendering it similar.
* IRC DH tube (NEVER BUY UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!!!)
* Specialized

Strength:

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

Weakness:

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

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).

Strength:

No pinchflats, can run lower air pressure

Weakness:

HEAVY!!!!!!!

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.

ivan   Downhiller [Jan 24, 2002]
Strength:

thick rubber

Weakness:

weight

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

Get these tubes if you want no more flats. I've been running these in dmr moto 26*2.4 wide and had no problems.

Jon Sillito   Weekend Warrior [Apr 21, 2006]
Strength:

REALLY think, hard as nails.

Weakness:

Heavy!

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!
