Bicycle inner tubes
Inner tubes for MTBs, road bikes, BMX bikes, touring and travel bikes
The tubes of a wheel's tyre are usually made of butyl or rubber. Tubes that are made of butyl do not heat up easily. Moreover, they are very solid against air pressure and can be produced at low cost. Latex tubes lose air more rapidly. They are lighter and have less rolling resistance, but when braking with rim brakes, they represent a potential risk because they heat up fast. There are several robust tubes for BMX, MTB, racing and trekking. Race bike tubes should be preferably lightweight, tubes for mountain biking in uneven terrain should be particularly resistant.
