          One of the lightest butyl rubber tubes you can purchase. Good puncture resistance.

            I have been using these tubes for about 10 years. They are one of the lightest butyl rubber tubes you can find. I also find these very puncture resistant. I put 3-4K miles per year and some years never flat.

                Comments about Michelin Ultra-light 700c Road Tube:

                Great way to save rotational weight, and the cost per gram's savings is minimal compared to what it costs to shave grams elsewhere. I've been riding on these for a few years now and haven't had many problems with punctures. This season 2 flats in over 3000 miles, both at the juncture of the valve stem and tube, so this might be the tube's weak point.

                I use the Ultra-Light in combination with Conti-SuSo tires and my bike rides like a dream. The Michelin tube is subtle enough to smooth out the road but durable enough to take most hits. I did flat Two but I didn't see some road debris and it was my fault.

                I put in a Bicycle Shop brand until my order came in from Nashbar and Oh the difference was noticeable. The next best thing to Latex tubes.

                  Comments about Michelin Ultra-light 700c Road Tube:

                  The only time I got a flat in one of these tubes, there was a staple stuck right through the sidewall of my tire. They last a long time and the 52 mm valves are a perfect length for my higher profile rims, and have no silly threading.

                    Comments about Michelin Ultra-light 700c Road Tube:

                    In most cases, a tube is a tube. But I've been using the Michelin Ultra Lights for many years without a single flat on them. They are light for a reliable butyl tube, but not really "ultra-light" in comparison to the latex offerings which don't have as good air retention.
                    One of the best features is the smooth valve stem. The pump slips on and off so easily without the grab of threaded stems. This really makes a huge difference. the tube is also allowed to seat itself naturally at the valve stem, instead of possibly being pulled too hard into the rim or too far away but a threaded nut. In some cases depending on the rim you may have rattling of the stem with no retention nut, but its solved in 2 seconds with a piece of electrical tape wrapped around the stem where it goes through the rim.
