    Latex is much lighter than butyl and gives one a crisp feel on the road. Acceleration/ climbing is enhanced.

      Comments about Vittoria Latex Presta Valve Road Tube - 51mm:

      Read many reviews about going latex. I was not able to feel any discernible difference from my butyl tubes, and that is what I was going for. I can't even say the gains are minimal since I was not able to experience any gains. But, I'm still glad I have them and perhaps I will note the benefits. I ride a Cervelo R3 with Continental Grand Prix 4000 S tires.

      Comments about Vittoria Latex Presta Valve Road Tube - 51mm:

      No local shops carry latex tubes so I ordered online. It really made a difference in the behavior of the tire on the road. For me it felt like dropping 20 lbs of pressure out of the tire to give a smoother ride that does not beat you up. Anyone purchasing latex tubes should go into it understanding they will need to add air daily because of it leaking out thru the tube. I air my tires up each day I go for a ride so its not much of an issue. If you only ride a few times a year you would do yourself a favor in staying away from latex tubes. Installation seems to be the worst part of installing in possibly damaging.

        Installed on road bike with 28mm Gatorskin tires. Able to run with low pressure, 75psi (155 lb rider). Low rolling resistance and comfortable ride with less vibration. Tubes do lose air by next day so pressure needs to be pumped up more frequently.

        Comments about Vittoria Latex Presta Valve Road Tube - 51mm:

        I have experienced one major advantage over butyl tubes, and that is significantly decreased rolling resistance. In my experience, I get only slightly fewer punctures with these tubes than with butyl tubes of similar weight. I like using these tubes for all purposes that use clincher tires that they fit because of reduced rolling resistance. The one downside is that latex is not as airtight as butyl, so tires need to be topped off every couple days.

            No overwhelming difference in ride quality. Hope I never get a puncture to find out if the tire is torn to shreds. Of course I now have an elevated sense of elitism, knowing that I riding on the very best tubes available, but excuse me, I am required to pull over to the side of the road and relieve myself.

              Comments about Vittoria Latex Presta Valve Road Tube - 51mm:

              Have these in Vittoria Diamante Pro and Continental tires on my road bikes, they improve the ride considerably. Have had no flats despite running through the unavoidable glass shards at the side of the road.

              Put about 700+ miles on them collectively so far with no problems. They're a bit pricey, but for the improvement in the ride, I'm fine with it.

              I weigh about 150-155 lbs, so I'm not sure how they would stand up to a heavier rider.

              Difficult for me to compare with butyl as far as comfort or performance. But I accept the experts results. Never had a flat even riding on the bad roads of the NE. Minor annoyance...they lose air quicker than butyl. So need to be checked before every ride and pumped up every 3-4 days.

              In my experience, this tubes greatly improve ride quality an decrease road vibration.

              I find them to be a great complement to a low weigh wheel.

              Currently, I have them on 3 different bikes and not had any problems.
