Tubolito Tubo CX/Gravel Tube

While many gravel and cyclocross riders have migrated strictly to tubeless tire use, some still prefer tubes. Most of these riders also carry a tube as an emergency option for a tubeless tire blowout and Tubolito makes a perfect option for both scenarios. Light, compact, and 2x more resistant to punctures, the Tubolito Tubo CX/Gravel Tube is not only orange, it's special.

Using a new high-tech thermoplastic elastomer (polyurethane/TPU)and combined with a unique manufacturing technology Tubolito is capable of delivering very light, robust and reliable bike tubes to their customers. Besides being lightweight with greater durability, the material also offer inherent damping properties- an area in which we all seek some enhancement. The team at Tubolito believe the use of new technologies and high-tech materials will further revolutionize the bike tube industry. The Tubo CX/Gravel can be used with 700c tires sized from 30-40mm, and is a distinctive orange color, as is the valve. There are several key features and considerations for using a Tubolito tube, and we have added these in the detail section below. Please read them carefully. These are specifications, not limitations and if you are road cyclist considering a tube upgrade these will most likely be acceptable or welcome to you as you gain performance and protection at significant weight reduction in a most unlikely place- the inner tube.

Made for tire widths from 30mm to 40mm and ready for rim brakes and disc brakes Tubo-CX/Gravel is twice as robust as standard tubes. At the same time, due to its low weight of 54 grams, it guarantees agile, responsive rides. The 50% smaller packed size makes it also a spare tube which fits in every pocket.

Features

  • Remarkable inner tube upgrade suitable for CX/Gravel bikes with disc or rim brakes
  • At 54 grams is at least 2/3 lighter than most butyl tubes, save almost 70g of rotating weight per wheel
  • 2x more resistant to punctures than a standard butyl tube
  • Overall size is much more compact (about 50%) than a butyl tube, takes up less storage space
  • Achieves light weight/durability by combining new material with an in-house developed production technology
  • Manufactured with thermoplastic elastomer- TPU
  • Material is known for its durability and excellent damping abilities
  • Substantially lower environmental footprint to manufacture than butyl tubes
  • Air retention/loss is similar to a butyl tube
  • Pinch flat protection is essentially the same as any standard tube
  • If you pre-inflate for shape before installing, then do not exceed 7psi (which is plenty) as the tube can deform
  • Inflate when installed within tire's listed pressure range
  • Only reuse in same tire size/rim configuration due to the way the material stretches
  • Valve cores of all Tubolito tube products are glued in and therefore not removable
  • Sealant will not repair a hole in a Tubolito tube, but will not damage one if used in a tire that had sealant inside
  • Note: can only be safely/properly patched with Tubo-Flix-Kit
  • All components/materials sourced in Europe, then manufactured in Europe
  • Color: Orange, with orange threadless valve
  • Valve lengths: 42mm, 60mm
  • Size: 700x30-40
  • Weight: 54 grams
