    What light tubes should I get for XC riding w/ a Hutch Mosquito Air light?

    I found out WTB stopped making the Duralight, so now I am looking into another option.

    What works for you?

    Before I converted to the wonderful world of tubeless I was running Michellin AirComps (the funky green latex ones). I never had a puncture or a pinch flat, and I was racing on a minotaur/wormdrive combo. They're pretty light, and have a much different feel than butyl tubes, much more supple as you're riding. Disadvantage is that you have to pump the damn things up every other night. It amazed me how fast they lost air. Oh, and you're hands will smell like a funky rubber after you install them. Just a warning in case the girlfriend asks.

    I've been using Maxxis Flyweights in the 1.5-1.75 size for a couple of years now. I've only had one go bye-bye, and that was due to a slow leak from a thorn puncture. They are very light, at around 80-85 grams, and not too awfully expensive.

    Maxxis Flyweights

    I`ve found these to be very good....have had them on the bike for 600kms, no flats (yet ), and mine weighed in at 92g each.
    Cheers

    Tubes

    The Maxxis flyweight and the Performance Lunar Lites are the same tubes. I have had no problems with them.

    Go tubeless

    Buy a tubless kit and ditch tubes for good.
