Everything in life is a compromise, including bicycle inner tubes. For the past years, your choice was: Either get a standard tube made of butyl with decent puncture resistance or try to save some weight by getting the “superlight” version. Basically, these are thinner butyl tubes that offer less strength. The odd choice was latex, which is puncture resistant but has issues with air retention.
Enter the stage: Tubolito
Made of a high-tech material called TPU, Tubolitos are a completely new approach to the inner tube. While offering weight saving up to 80 % compared to standard tubes, Tubos also offer double puncture resistance. Even the extra light S-Tubo models are still as robust as classic butyl tubes.
At Tubolito, we consider ourselves as tube engineers. Puncture resistance is tested scientifically with needle puncture tests, but also in real life testing like driving over thorns, glass shards and nails.
Although we have already achieved a lot with our Tubo and S-Tubo line, we set ourselves a further goal: We wanted to create an even more robust inner tube so that punctures are finally a thing of the past. In 2021 we launched the X-Tubo series that can withstand nails up to 20 mm.
Tubolito is so confident in the robustness of X-Tubos that we offer a one-year warranty covering all kinds of flats.
Whatever you need, there is a right Tubolito for you. So next time you’re in your local bike shop, ask if they have the orange tubes.
