I still have tires with tubes. (boo-hiss) I hope to go tubeless next year.
For local rides we have goat head thorns so I use slime tubes and my co-riders with tubeless wheels have to use lots of stans sealant. I don't pinch flat often and run about 32-35 psi in my front tire (2.4 mutano raptor race) and 35-40 psi in my rear tire (panaracer fire xc 2.1 tire).
For a non goat head thorn race, I am thinking of swapping the slime tubes and using regular light butyl or latex inner tubes.
I have used latex tubes for some road races with good performance, smoother ride and no flats.
Does anyone use latex tubes for their MTB races? Any issues..
