It's All About That Valve

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

      It's getting harder to find tubes that don't have threaded valves. I find that threaded valves wear out the chuck/grommet on my pumps so I try to avoid them. This tube has the valve style and length I like. Thought I'd give it a try. It's touted as a tough product as opposed to light weight which is what I'm looking for. The negatives... They're expensive and you really need to pump them up for every ride. Air seeps out quickly. I'm not sorry I bought them but if a butyl tube had all the positives of this one I'd go with butyl next time.

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

        I ride daily, from 14 to 20 miles, depending on errands.
        Of the five tubes I've received (Three purchased, two replacements), one holds pressure for more than a day. Of the other four, I finally found one which hold for two to three days. The other three don't hold pressure for more than two hours, making the possibility of a metric century ride out of the question.
        I would like to know why, if you wouldn't want Presta valves in your car or truck, does the bicycle industry insist on foisting them on us?

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

            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.

                    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.
