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 them free from manufacturer defects for 2 years.

    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'?
    • SILCA Latex Inner Tube Upgrade (2 wheels): 4-10 Watts, $42
    • Full Wheelset Ceramic Bearing Upgrade (6 cartridges): 0.8-1 watt savings, $400-1000
    • Ceramic bearing derailleur pulleys: 1-3 Watts, $200-400
    • Newest Aero Road Helmet: 4-8 Watts, $300

    Final Sale Items may have damaged packaging, missing packaging, or very small cosmetic blemishes. They are still covered under our standard warranty, but are not eligible for returns.

      A great experiment

      These tubes just arrived and will go onto my Trek Emonda. I put them on a scale and they are a bit lighter than regular butyl tubes. Their increased strength and puncture resistance are the other big selling points. I really want to see if the ride is noticeably better.

      SILCA Latex Inner Tubes

      SILCA Latex Inner Tubes are superb. Low rolling resistance leads to a lot of freewheeling on a group ride. These things ought to be against the law. I absolutely love them..period!

      Great bit of kit

      The aero covers are great addition to regular latex tubes, it’s one of those little details that a good bike deserves.
