The latest tubes to step up to the challenge are these ones from Foss, who claim their tubes are not just puncture resistant but alsolighter and more environmentally friendly than your normal inner-tube, quite the triple whammy. Each one is a bold claim by itself, but the Foss website proudly proclaims they're "a unique, energetic, strong conqueror"
Explosion Proof Once pierced, the highly polymerized tube material will create an airtight seal around the object and prevent immediate perforation, giving runners more time to react.
The tube provides a superior quality of the elasticity of the material which can actually reduce the rolling resistance.
Light-Weight & Environmentally Friendly Material
The tubes are environmentally friendly because of the modified thermoplastic elastomer compounds (TPE) they are able to be recycled with other TPE products, thus minimizing waste & protecting the environment.
The material density is 0.88 g / cc. It is 30% lighter than traditional tubes. And it is a recycledEnvironmentally Friendly material.
These inner-tubes come with incredibly specific instructions for fitting, which makes it easier to get a better inner-tube reading. cold and dark, and rain. But we've got some of these blue tubes for the road bike and some for thecyclo-cross bike to hopefully put those demons to rest
