I also have two of the "tubo road" tubes for a spare for my TT bike and they are TINY and weigh nothing. That is, honestly probably the best use for it. Two tubes, a multi-tool, two CO2s, and inflator fit in the draft box of my Speed Concept with tons of room to spare. Thinking about making a foam cutout of some sort to organize all of it. Right now I just stuff a pair of socks in there to keep it all from rattling.
the normal one (38 gr) is ok for rim brakes. i am using the latter since a year now and no issues so far. no flat yet. seems to hold air better then a light butyl
cannot comment on RR but does not "feel" different then a thin butyl.
The only benefit I see in them, as others have said, is to have it in a flat kit due to their size. Race with latex.
Basically you can also use S-Tubo-Road as your daily tube. While Tubo-Road is twice as robust against punctures as standard tubes, S-Tubo-Road is still as robust as standard tubes. To see how we test that you can watch following video:
I hope that answer helps.
Please do not hesitate to come back to me with any questions."
So seeing as the S-tubo can be used as an every day tube, and the rolling resistance, particularly at lower pressures, is in line with latex, does that change your opinion? From what I'm seeing, the cost is the only downside.
