Product Description

Slime Lite tubes are a brilliant way of repairing and preventing punctures. The sealant magically seeks out and seals punctures when they happen so you can ride safe in the knowledge that you'll be able to get home. The slime seals punctures up to 3mm and is available for presta or schrader valves for 26"" or 700c wheels.

Slime is non-toxic, non-hazardous and water soluble, so you can use it on the move without the need for gloves. It won't freeze or dry up and will last for up to two years.

Occasionally, without notice, manufacturers change product design and/or specifications.

No more numb fingered tube changing!!

Great product with no real weight penalties. No punctures as yet so must be doing the job. Definitely recommend if you ride over the winter months when most punctures seem to happen (Always when fingers are frozen!!!!).

Grief Free Rides

I bought a pair of Slime Lite tubes to try as my existing self sealing tubes were quite a bit heavier, but these Lites don't seem any heavier than standard ones. Hassle free rides are worth paying a small premium for these tubes!

Slimelite tubes

Hardly any heavier than a std continental inner tube, rode down a long Blackthorn hedged lane just after it had been cut, no punctures. So pleased I bought another set for my other bike. Oh! and service from Tredz....quicker than Wiggle!!!

Great product

These really don't weigh any more than the continental spare I have been carrying. After 2 punctures in 2 rides it's worth a try.

Great insurance!

Havent used a road bike for years but having bought a new Specialized Roubaix from Tredz thought I should avoid puncture accident risks from the Autumn blackthorn hedge trimmings by fitting these excellent lightweight tubes... The alternative DIY gunge would have added as much weight so no contest & easypeazy swap!!

Inner Tubes Guide

 

Inner Tubes Guide

 

How To Choose The Right Inner Tubes For You

It's inevitable you'll get a puncture at some point. When you do you'll need a spare bike inner tube with you. Use our simple bicycle inner tube guide to discover the right type for your bike.


Wheel size diameter on tyre sidewall for correct inner tube sizing

What Size Inner Tube Do I Need?

Before buying a new bicycle inner tube, you'll want to make sure it will fit your wheel rims. The easiest way to do this is by looking at the tyres on your bike. On the sidewall you'll see a combination of digits such as:

700x28c (road wheel) or 27.5x2.2 (mountain bike wheel)

The first figure is the diameter of your wheel, the latter is the width of your tyre.

Inner tubes will fit just one wheel size, so you'll need to match your new tube to your wheel diameter. However, inner tubes will cover a range of tyre widths.

On a product page you'll find inner tubes are labelled with a series of digits:

  • 700 x 23-28c (for road bike tubes)
  • 29 x 1.75-2.4" (for mountain bike tubes)

The first figure is your wheel diameter while the second two figures are the tyre widths the inner tube can be used with. As long as you match your wheel diameter, and your tyre width falls within the range stated, the tube will fit.



ETRTO bike tyre sizing can be found on tyre sidewall

ETRTO Sizing

When looking at the side wall of your tyre you may see a combination of digits such as 54-559 or 23-622.

This is ETRTO sizing but we recommend you use the Imperial/Metric sizing above as most cycle inner tubes we stock use this standard.

Here is a comparrison chart for traditional and ETRTO sizing to help you choose the correct tyre size.

Schrader & Presta Valve Compatibility

The easiest way to determine if you need a Presta or Schrader inner tube valve is to again look at your current bike inner tube.

Schrader Valve

Schrader Valve

Easily identified by the 'car type' stubby profile. These valves are often found on entry-level bikes which run on lower tyre pressures such as mountain bikes.

Presta Valve

Presta Valve

Have a long and narrow profile. They have a central core you unscrew before inflating the tube.

Presta valves are often used on road bikes which run at higher tyre pressures. These valves come in a range of lengths. Longer valves are designed for use with deep section aero rims.

The Benefits Of Self-Sealing Inner Tubes

Punctures are inevitable. Instead of having to lug around spare inner tubes with you, you can opt for a self-sealing inner tube. These bike inner tubes are delivered with tube sealant already inside. When you get a puncture the sealant will plug the gap so you can keep riding.
