Puncture resistant tube

I tried to follow the very limited instructions on the box which involved a partial pressure of 0.5 bar before installing in the tyre. Having installed successful I tried to pump to the recommended 3.5 bar but I couldn't get a reading from the gauge. I pumped until it was firm but I did not like the uncertainty of not knowing the pressure. I tried several times with the pump gauge and also with a separate digital gauge with no success. I eventually decided to deflate and replace with a standard tube. Disappointing

Would benefit from into on packaging

I had a puncture from a thick nail that did not repair. I assumed it was too large to do so. Only by looking up reviews here and seeing the company's replies did I find that it works for small punctures AND you need to keep cycling as the motion makes the repair work. This is critical information that needs to be included in the box when you but it.

Haven't had any problems with these they do what they say.

Failed to self-seal

Punctured on only my second use (on not particularly rough roads/tracks). Self repair failed to work and I had to walk home and resort to the good old puncture repair kit.

I'm sorry to read that the innertube did not seal itself. Holes made by thorns, small pieces of flint or small pinch flats should seal up with no issue as long as you keep on riding (important not to stop riding), the motion of the wheels spinning plugs the hole. If you continued to ride and the puncture persisted, the hole may have been too large.
If you believe the item to be faulty then please feel free to return it to us for a refund or an exchange.

Bad quality valve

I used it for the first time and as soon as I left home, after 5 minutes cycling the tyre was flat. I checked it and there did not seem to be any problem so I inflated the tyre again but the same happened. I checked the valve and it tourns aout that after pumping air, when I pressed a little bit with my hand I could hear air coming out. This is not fine, I read some comments of people having problems with the valve of this product. I think perhaps some are OK but I would not risk to but it knowing that it is a recurrent problem. Unfortunately, it's been more than a month I bought it so I don;t think I can claim my money back but hopefully it will help other people to take a good decision.

Inner tube

Self sealing inner tube, working great

icon-circle-checkmark verified purchase
Nice idea...

So I thought I would replace my old inner tubes with self sealing ones.... nice idea. So first outing, great ride out of about 10 miles just to check everything OK. Second outing my front tyre was a bit soft so when to inflate... unfortunately it appears the valve has broken and the sealant has filled up the valve and sealed it completely... unable to put any air in but on the upside will not deflate any more. Downside is .... in order to fit a new innertube I have had to slash the self healing one to get it out ... so the incentive lasted one ride - not really value for money then.

It sounds as if the valve is blocked. It can occasionally happen to self sealing innertubes from all brands. A valve can be removed and cleaned and replaced. Alternatively you can return it to us for a replacement.

it works

got flat on my way to work but still made it all the way to my work-place. I left my bike for a couple of hrs and when I got back to check on it the tyre was completley flat. I took the wheel off for repair but then I decided to pump some air in and see how it holds. At first it was losing air but then after giving it a spin it sealed itself :) Just to make sure I left it for a few more hours to see if it was going to be fine and it was. Thus there was no need to fix my tyre (inner tube) and I got back home with no issue.

does not work at all

next to useless the bike guy at the shop said it would work fine yet i have a flat tire. avoid at all cost

I'm sorry to read that you have a flat tyre.
I'm very interested to hear more about your puncture and why it did not remain inflated when you were riding. I want to feed this back to b'Twin as it will be very useful information to understand what went wrong. Would you mind replying to me?

not so self sealing

I bought these after a spate of punctures and with a new tyre, set off confident on my commute, 15 miles in and a saftey pin had gone through the side wall. Never mind I thought i'll pull it out and my brand new self sealing inner tube can shine, spin the wheel still going down , put more air in still going down spin the wheel with more air still no joy spent as long trying to get it to seal as it did to change. Got home and part inflated it and the goo bubbled out of a small hole I left it hanging with the hole at the bottom hoping it might work. After a week and still not sealed I binned it, complete waste of time and money.

Hi Darren,

Thank you for taking your time to review the self healing inner tube.
It is strange that the sealant did not work as it should, you have done everything correct in regards to keeping the wheel spinning etc to get the sealant into the hole. The only thing I can think of is that the hole was bigger than the 3mm that it will seal up to. I have been using the road version on my bike and it worked well after riding over some glass.

I'd return the tube to your local store for an exchange/refund as it has not done the job it is designed for.

26X1.7-2.2 ATC INNER TUBE

Two inner tubes in a year - 1st one replaced after bad puncture ( which auto filled so I was able to cycle 5 miles to get home) 2nd tube I still have in and nice to know you do not need to stress about getting puncture. Recently bought two tubes for my son who has had numerous punctures- been puncture free for two months

Dear Pavan,

not worth buying

not even 10days usage , already the tube got punctured once. NO SELF HEALING. Blindly dont believe this product

icon-circle-checkmark verified purchase
Hello Punith,

Thank you for taking the time to give us your review. The inner tube usually heals staple pins and smaller punctures. It may not be able to heal nail piercings. I suggest you try a tire liner to reduce the number of punctures.  I remain available for more questions.

Additional Product Information

Composition

How to choose your inner tube

Check the information indicated on the sidewall of the tire (diameter and width). For example, 26 x 2.00 means your tire is 26 inches in diameter and 2.00 inches in width. On the sidewall, you will also find the dimensions in mm in international ETRTO measurements. For example 50-559 means the tire is 50 mm wide with an inner diameter of 559 mm (or 26 x 2.00).

Removing an inner tube

Remove the old inner tube using B'Twin tire levers.

What to check before installing your new inner tube

Check the condition of your tire and replace it if necessary. Make sure no objects are lodged in the tire. Check the condition of your tire rim strip. A rim strip that is even slightly bent can cause punctures. Check that your rim does not have any other issues that could damage your inner tube.

Fitting your inner tube

Watch our video before you start. Pre-inflate the inner tube slightly to avoid pinching. Insert the valve, making sure you are using the correct valve for your rim. Put the inner tube entirely inside the tire so that it fits inside the rim. Take care not to pinch the inner tube when fitting.

Mounting the tire

Start by mounting the tire onto the wheel on the opposite side to the valve. Finish mounting the tire at the valve to avoid pinching the inner tube. Never mount your tire with a screwdriver or a tire lever, as you risk pinching and puncturing the inner tube.

Inflating the tire

Inflate your tire carefully, to the pressure recommended by the manufacturer (visible on the tire sidewall in PSI or bars, 1 bar = 14.51 PSI). Regularly check that your tire is in the correct position as you inflate it.

Tip from the pros

To prevent any puncture from pinching and to achieve the best performance, we recommend checking and, if necessary, pumping up your front tire before each ride.
