Strength:

- weight (some tubes are really light-weigt)
- price (in Germany these tubes are really cheap)

Weakness:

- flats
- the valves are weak

I used the Schwalbe tubes since 1996 - now i ride UST tubeless. the light-version is (as the name says) about 130g a good device to tune the acceleration of your bike. in combination with a light tire it's a good working system . . . till you left the raod and try to have fun on some tracks. the skinny tires don't resist against any thorns or nails or what's ever hidden in the dirt. I had sometimes 2 flats on one tour. it sucks. many of my friend make jokes like it would be better to put a valve on a condom . . . but thats the past . . . and now it's tubeless-time . . . not without a reason!

Strength:

Lightweight
easy rolling
Very good valve
Cheap

Weakness:

Relatively easy to be pointed
likely to get snakebited

This tube, a product of my German home country, is a good performing one at a reasonable price (10 German Marks). I like it fine, because it is easy rolling and quite light - ok not so light like a Panaracer Greenlite - but reasonable enough to use it in hobby races.
