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.

    Smooth

    Great feeling, combined with 25mm GP5000 and the right preasure an awesome riding experience. My first latex tube after no good tubeless-roadtire experience. The floating feeling and vibration damping is really nice. Since i check tirepreasure before every ride anywas, the air loss doesn't bother me but it's deffinetly something to keep in mind. Will be hard to convince me to go tubeless on the road again. Maybe your sealant will do, i'll get it next year.

    Close to tubeless!

    Since my current wheels aren't ready for tubeless at the moment I decided to go with some Silca Latex tubes to try. I followed Silca's tire pressure calculator and have been amazed at how comfortable this setup is. Prior to these tubes I used some run of the mill tubes that came with my bike. I used to run the tire pressure in the high 80's thinking I want to prevent flats and go faster. After installing the tubes I've been running around 75psi and have been blown away at how comfortable I am now and seems to be just as fast if not faster. It does seem like they don't hold air as well as the older tubes but not excessively. I have had to top the pressure off just before every ride, losing around 8-10 psi.
