Strength:

made for bigger wider tires over 2.3. Hold pressure pretty good and don't have to inflate them EVERYTIME you go out. I use IRC Kujo DH tires with the pinch resistant foam and so far have never had a pinch flat, and i abuse my wheels/tires pretty bad.

Strength:

Big and "burly"

Weakness:

It popped too soon.

This tube got pinch flats way too soon. Over simple rock gardens it went flat, and over small 6ft drops. For the weight I would have expected it to last longer

Strength:

fits tires

Weakness:

valve stem tears off; expensive

The valve stem tore away from tube rendering usless after a very short period of time. 2.75-3.00 x 21 motorcycle tubes work much better and are half the price.

Strength:

Thick and big, yet still fits in tire.

Weakness:

I have pinch flatted at least three of them, when I felt there was no reason to pinch flat.

Not much else out there that doesn't pop from thorns and stuff like that.

Strength:

I bourght this around 3 months ago, and i havent had A puncture yet! I can ride hard, with no problems, yet trust my back-end.

Weakness:

A bit heavy, but its a dh tube, not light xc.

Ive got an intense dh 2.35 tire f+b, whith this stuff by slime which goes inbetween the tire and the tube. it adds on a bit of weight but i aint no weak guy who needs a super light bike that feels like it could break under pedeling. If you do dh, trials or jumpind, and you want the best, go for these. You do get a lotta rubber for the money (and believe me, thats a lot of rubber).

Weakness:

little heavier than other brands but hey, its made for DH tires.

These are made for DH use so they are barely a little heavier. I've used them with IRC kujo tires for 3 months and no pinch flats at all with constant abuse.They hold tube pressure pretty well so you don't have to worry about refilling them EVERYTIME you go out for a ride. They are specifically designed for bigger/wide tires, 2.3-2.7. Trust me when i say they are worth it. My tires have the pinch resistant foam so that may explain the no flats but the tubes keep my tires hard and strong. Good investment. great for DH,DJ,FR and even XC.
