The new ContiTube bicycle tube program makes it easier for you to find the ideal tube for your cycling demands. The user-friendly tube system is suitable for any size, length, design, type of valve & perfect for any tyre dimension & riding occasion. Varying tube types can affect your tyres’ handling characteristics: the Standard tube, available in all dimensions is the best choice for everyday cycling whilst Light & Supersonic varieties give racers the option of lower rotating weight, therefore increasing speed. The lightweight tubes have a lower thickness & so it is imperative that inflation pressures are maintained to prevent the risk of pinch flats.
For worry free cycling, we recommend the Hermetic Plus tube. Its improved formula is lighter & more compact, which renders it very puncture resistant in the presence of higher butyl amounts & greater wall thickness. Since it retains air longer, it’s a favourite among bicycle rental agencies. Our Freeride & Downhill tubes are especially strong & bulky, which make it one of our favourites, since their extra wall thickness effectively protects against punctures.
