Pros & Cons

Pros & Cons

  • Schwalbe's Aerothan Race is the ultimate lightweight inner tube (only 41 grams) for road bikes.
  • Thanks to the elastic material the Aerothan inner tube is highly puncture and snakebite resistant.
  • The Aerothan Race, including the valve, is made from 100% recyclable plastic.
  • Compared to a butyl inner tube, the Aerothan Race is much smaller and will fit perfectly in a back pocket or saddle bag!
  • Due to its outstanding heat resistance this inner tube can be used both with rim and disc brakes.
  • Important: Do not inflate further than 0.3 bar outside the tyre as deformations may develop.

Description

Description

The Schwalbe Aerothan redefines the inner tube! By using a completely new type of plastic, Schwalbe has brought together the most opposite characteristics of an inner tube: low rolling resistance, low weight and high puncture resistance. To summarize: The Aerothan combines the puncture resistance of butyl tubes with the rolling resistance and weight of latex tubes.

The Schwalbe Aerothan Race is designed for use on road bikes and for road bike riders for whom every second and every gram count. With two Aerothan Race inner tubes you can easily save 100 grams compared to butyl tubes without sacrificing puncture resistance. You can also rely on the Aerothan Race in extreme conditions. Thanks to its excellent heat resistance, it will give everything on fast and long descents to get you safely, and as quickly as possible, to the bottom of the mountain, even when you have rim brakes.

Compact size
The Aerothan Race is not only much lighter than comparable butyl tubes, but also much more compact because the material is less thick than butyl. This makes the Aerothan a very handy product to be taken as a spare in a saddle bag or back pocket of your jersey. If you want to bring even less with you, you can also repair the Aerothan on the road with Schwalbe Glueless Patches, which you simply stick on the Aerothan without sanding it first. Do make sure the inner tube is clean before applying the patch.

100% recyclable
An Aerothan inner tube is 100% recyclable. Not only the tube itself is made of thermoplastic polyurethane, but so is the valve, from the cap to the valve core. As such, the whole product can be recycled. However, an Aerothan inner tube cannot be reused as an inner tube, but it can be used as an insulating material, for example. So, when you choose Aerothan, you choose durability!

Technology

Thermoplastic polyurethane: Aerothan
Schwalbe, in co-operation with BASF, has completely revised the Aerothan to meet all the specific requirements of an inner tube. For example, this thermoplastic polyurethane now has excellent heat resistance, which means that it can be used with rim brakes without any problems. The elasticity and durability of the material also make this inner tube very puncture resistant. Thanks to its high resilience and unique tensile strength, the Aerothan will stretch when meeting a sharp object, which reduces the chance of penetration significantly. Another great property of the Aerothan is that it cannot burst during cycling. Thus, you will never lose control of your bike because all the air suddenly escapes from your tyre. Rather, the Aerothan deflates slowly so that you can stop safely.

Use: Road
Designation: SV20E
Wheel size: 28 inch
ETRTO: 23-622 - 28-622

Compatibility

The Aerothan Race is suitable for 28 inch tyres with widths between 23 and 28 mm. It weighs a mere 41 grams.
As the Presta valve is 40 mm long, you will have to use a valve extender for high rims. This is possible thanks to the removable valve core.

Despite the few EUR more, the Aerothan hose is absolutely worth the money and pays for itself in the long run

- Heinz 5 July 2024

With the Schwalbe Aerothan inner tube, my bike is a bit faster than with normal inner tubes. With the Aerothan tubes I've probably had one more flat tyre in 2 years. Unlike with the normal inner tubes. I had to change the inner tube every few weeks because of a flat tyre.

Disappointed

- Kevin 27 May 2024

After reading some reviews, my curiosity was piqued, so I decided to order! Fitting the inner tubes went very smoothly. The main question: what is it like to ride with them? In all honesty, the difference is only small. Acceleration is slightly better and while riding you notice more clearly that you are riding "tubeless". What I am not satisfied with, however, are the valves. By the third ride, air was already escaping from one of the valves, and that for a tube costing more than €20. They should not have skimped on the weight of the valves. Conclusion: nice to test once, but I switched back to "regular" inner tubes, as they are more reliable and cheaper in the long run!

Excellent inner tube!

- EJ 15 May 2024

Excellent tyre. Lower rolling resistance vs higher puncture risk. In addition, puncture resistance depends largely on your outer tyre.

Pros & Cons

Low rolling resistance
Supplied valves leak

They're great.

- Jérôme 23 April 2024

I've been riding Schwalbe Aerothan race tubes for nearly 4 years now. They're the best! They're light and very comfortable over very long distances.
