Worth the expense?

No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Lightweight
Cons: Poor quality, Expensive
Decided to see for myself if latex tubes are actually the best you can buy...
Not the best first impressions as one ruptured on inflation - before I even got to 80psi. Tyres and wheels were perfect, no levers, thumbs only. Looked like an imperfection in the moulding, Evans agreed and refunded.
Still have one installed on the rear and no punctures as yet. Can't notice any difference in the ride, tbh. They don't seem to lose pressure as quickly as people seem to suggest - I only lost 5psi in 24hrs.
At this price, I think I'll stick with butyl in future.

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight
Cons: Expensive
I've always used another brand of latex tube, but have had problems with punctures recently so thought would give these a bash. No complaints so far!
