WHAT IS A BICYCLE TUBE MADE OF?
WHICH SPECIAL FEATURES DOES A SCHWALBE TUBE OFFER?
Besides the quality of the ingredients, the purity of the rubber compound is decisive for the quality of the tube. Before extrusion, the basic material is forced through a total of seven filters under enormous pressure. All tubes are inserted and inflated into a mold for the vulcanization process. Only this ensures an even wall thickness and high air retention.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF LATEX TUBES?
Tubes made out of latex are more elastic than normal butyl tubes. This makes them roll a little more easily. Their greatest advantage lies in the high level of puncture protection. The highly elastic latex material is very difficult to puncture.
