We've all felt this burning desire to go out riding: we grab our favourite cycling apparel, put our shoes on... and here we are, ready to embark on a new adventure...until we notice an unpleasant surprise just after opening the garage door: a flat tyre! We have no option but to remove the wheel and change the inner tube. Quite often this component is neglected and doesn't have the importance it deserves. Yet, the reliability of our bike is closely linked to the inner tube's quality and performance which allows a race with no mishap nor emergency road-side maintenance. To avoid these hitches and ensure high resistance, there are latex tubes with specific puncture proof profile or self sealing tubes which automatically repair small holes and snake bites. The cyclists who are looking for extreme lightweight should pay attention to the superlight tube range, produced by most of the famous brands, which combine a quite good resistance with light and ultra-thin sidewalls. And for occasional cyclists who don't need flawless performances, there is a great selection of traditional butyl tubes to meet their requirements in terms of size, length and valve type.
