MTB inner tubes
Inner tubes for mountain bikes: butyl and latex, Presta and Schrader valve, 26" and 29"
Wheels and tyres of a mountain bike ridden on uneven and rocky roads are exposed to extreme strains. This refers to the outer tyre and to the inner tube as well. Both have to be very resistant. Due to the fact that the tyre pressure has to be adjusted according to the road conditions, tumbling frictions occur. That is why tubes for mountain bikes require special production processes, which take these particular strains into account. With regard to the material used and to their sizes, the tube types offered in this category are specially designed for mountain bike tyres.

Classic butyl tubes weigh around 200 grams per tube, while light versions can take a few grams off the scales. Latex tubes are slightly lighter and, what’s more, they also improve rolling resistance. However, if you want to reduce the weight even further, you have to go for the more expensive thermoplastic tube. In the light version, it even beats tubeless systems in terms of weight and it also provides the best puncture protection among inner tubes.
