Limited Warranty

SILCA LIMITED WARRANTY 

Parts covered by SILCA Limited Warranty are considered to be subject to wear through normal use or are consumable subject to degradation through the course of their daily use.  SILCA guarantees the life of these items to be at least 2 years from the date of original purchase.

    Compared to standard butyl rubber bicycle inner tubes, latex tubes are considerably more elastic (10x elongation compared to 2-3x). More importantly, Latex Rubber has significantly lower coefficient of damping which means that when latex rubber is stretched or flexed, it returns to shape faster and with less energy loss.

    What does this mean for an inner tube?  Latex inner tubes are generally 2-5 Watts (per tire) more efficient at 30mph than tubes made of other materials. They are harder to pinch-flat and offer superior ride quality, especially when combined with supple, low rolling resistance tires. This tube has been sized to fit tires measuring 24-30mm, which will equate to 23-28mm tires used on modern wider rims.  Valve stem length is 42mm and will work in all modern disc wheels.

     

    So why did Josh call this the 'Biggest Bang For Your Buck'?

    I use the Silca Latex Inner Tube now for 7000km commuting, granfondos etc. without any breakdowns in combination with a Specialiced Turbo cotton. Love it.

    Best Tube Ever

    Rolls fast for ROLLFAST... I love these tubes. I originally bought them for my TT bike to compete in the 6hr World Championship race. After I put them on that bike I immediately felt the speed increase and put them on both of my Factor o2 road bikes. At the right pressure (90psi for me), I know I'm going faster!

    Perfect

    First time latex tube user, so consider the source. I was pleasantly surprised by how easily the valve extender was attached using the included wrench tool. Tube went in easily, and holds air much better than I expected. I didn’t test rolling resistance before and after, but I beat my expected race time by 1.5% so they didn’t hurt. Last, I hit a couple of horrible road cracks that hammered my tires. I expected a pinch flat, but no damage. Couldn’t be more satisfied.
