Airwave MTB Tube - Super Value 10 Pack - 10 for 27 quid? Verging in disposable at that money.

Can only comment on personal experience I bought a box of these around 6 months back, the lot went straight in the bin after a month, every time I hit a knarly section or when things got bouncy they punctured and that was on three different bikes went back to conti's not one issue.

I also use the Airwave tubes on the DH bike and again I have very few punctures - none so far this season, maybe 2 on the DH bike last season and maybe 3 or 4 punctures on the XC/AM bike in the whole of last season.

As good as any, and red valve caps so you get added speed. I haven't had a puncture for years using any type tube so...
