Strength:

it´s michelin, so it should be good enough, light, It doesn´t get stick in the tire after some kms.

Weakness:

It can´t stand decent pressure with a tire liner

I have had one flat a month with those michelin inner tubes. I ride those in both wheels with maxxis detonators 26x1.50. As I use them for commuting is easy to find broken glasses everyday, so as an extra care, I put a mr tuffy band and the tube couldn´t resist a pressure of 60psi, because the edge of the band easely cut the rubber tube. Then a puted a slime band which is thinner and 45psi... the same story. By the way, only happens in my rear tube, no problems yet with the front one. I weight 70kg.
I´ve had a pair of conti tubes for ages (excelent tubes) but unfortunately not in this size, so I came back to my old ritchey innovaders (26x2)until I find decent tubes for my maxxis.
I don´t want to roll without tire liners. It give me more confidence.
