Weakness:

It's weak. It's hard to fit in place.

I used the 26" version.

It's the worst tube I ever had in my life. In normal times it takes me around 10min to fit my tire back in place without a wave in it...took me over 2h with this tube. On top of that it lasted me for only 7 days!!! All my previous tubes lasted me for YEARS!

Strength:

none...they're crap

Weakness:

ok, at first I thought that this was the greatest, strongest tube out there...WRONG! This thing is incredibly weak! I pinched flat by just going up a curb! These things are also heavy (who cares?), and they are hard as heel to put in (also, who cares?).

BTW: I used the 26 inch version not the 24.

They pinch flat, they are weak. Seriously...I thought that they were super strong...wrong.

Strength:

The best tube i have used to date, kicks thornproof tubes in the ass. The bolt thing on the valve is really usefull in keeping the valve up while trying to pump it.

Weakness:

Nothing really, maybe......weight? The valves are quite heavy as they are steel, but meh~~ I rather sacrifice a bit of weight for high quality tube.

Haven't pinched since I had this tube, i had one punctured from a thumb tack but thats not the tube's fault. I'm running a thin single ply tire and I give the rear wheel a bloody beating. I have felt the rim many times and never have I pinch flatted, this is due to the large size (takes up to a 3.0" tire!!!) and I install with heaps of baby powder. Oh and I run really low pressures (~25psi) and it still lives!!!!
Great tube! Go buy it!

Strength:

valve with screw! needed!

using this tube on a mountain unicycle. after blowing 6 different tubes this is the strongest I have used so far. no incident for 1 year! the good thing is that using a very low pressure tire (Nokian Gazzaloddi) I need a valve that can be fixed tightly to the rim! (otherwise the tube may slip and cut the valve off).

Strength:

Weakness:

This product is pretty weak. I got a flat with a regular IRC tube and then replaced it with the DH tube and after one month. Then i replaced it with the same DH tube and after a week, I got another flat. Complete crap. And I'm not going downhilling, just doing urban mainly. And I'm not running a really low PSI.

This product sucks. Do not buy it unless there is nothing else.
