Ritchey Superlight Butyl Tube Tube

Superlight Butyl Tube

If you still hammer the trails on your 26-inch hardtail, the Ritchey Superlight Butyl Tube will help you stay as fast as you've always been, and even more dismissive of those newfangled 'big wheels' everyone seems to be riding these days. The Superlight tube weighs in at only 140 grams, making sure you'll still out-climb those overgrown mutants.

Wieght

Weakness:

Ability to hold air

Worked acceptable in front tire, but wasn't an option for the rears as it would only hold air for <1 ride.

Strength:

Has a threaded valve stem to avoid pull thru which was why I bought them over other lights.

Weakness:

The entire tube!

These got holes in them the first week. Not pinch flats and not punctures - I even checked the rim strip. Just plain mystery holes and these tubes just plain suck.

Strength:

Light weight, includes Schraeder adapters as valve caps, supposed to weigh 120 grams (didn't weigh them to check -- who has a scale to weigh such things except scientists and drug dealers?

Weakness:

Extremely susceptible to pinch flats, weighs 120 grams.

These babys blow! I mean that in every way. They just plain suck. They kept popping, while riding on pavement no less, at anywhere from 60-80 psi. What the hello is up with that? The ONLY way to keep these babies inflated is to prep them by slicing the tube, spraying in some goo, patching them up, and letting the slime do its thing. I would not recommend these tires toanyone for any reason.
