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'?

    Easy to install!

    So far so good! Installation was easy and my 1st ride was great, it does feel a little more supple than the previous tubes I had.

    Latex Tubes + Speed Shield are the best option

    After dealing with nonremovable core Vittoria tubes, I went to Silca. The extender process was easier, has a better seal, and the speed shield looks dope. Recommend big time.

    Good tube

    There's just enough talc to make install a breeze. It seems to hold air a bit longer than most latex tubes. I was hestitant to go back to latex from light butyl, but the marginal gains claims are better than I thought they would be. FYI I'm running Vittoria Corsa G+ 25mm (27 meas) on Bora One 35 wheels. The valve stem is just long enough.
