Challenge Brand Latex tubes are some of the finest tubes money can buy. At 57g average (23c tube), they are also some of the lightest. Latex tubes are more resistant to pinch flats and punctures, and roll faster and smoother than their butyl counterparts. Perfect for the racer and performance enthusiast. Also ideal for cyclocross usage when paired with a quality tire.

  • Highest Quality Latex Tube
  • Removable Valve Cores
  • 57g approx.
  • Lower Rolling Resistance for best ride quality
  • Offered in two sizes to match your tires
  • Please note that natural latex tubes will bleed around 10-20 PSI a day.

    Comments about Challenge SL Latex Tube:

    Latex tubes have gotten a bad rep for being not worth it... That's so wrong!! I tried these out for the first time with some open tubulars and WOW... the difference in ride quality and cornering is almost frightening. SO much more supple, lightweight and comfortable. Going back to regular butyl tubes will be difficult after riding these. They're worth the hassle. I didn't flat a single time riding these tubes, but I ruined one while trying to mount it. The trickiness is in the installation.

    Do NOT ride these unless you are 100% sure you installed the tube properly and didn't pinch it between the tire and the rim. Your tires must have no cuts or holes in the casing and your rim tape job has to be perfect.

    Paired with some high-end tires these are probably the closest you'll come to that elusive tubular ride quality. Granted I have ridden tubulars and they feel completely different, but nice tires with these are closer than anything else.
