Our tubes are high quality Schwalbe tubes. Be careful of buying unbranded tubes as you may suffer loss of pressure and more regular valve failures or punctures.
The valves are all metal, not part rubber like some others. Part rubber valves can split easily and are more vulnerable to impacts.
A tube is not just a tube
Airtightness. Apart from the quality of the ingredients, the purity of the rubber mixture is crucial to the quality of the tube. The base material is therefore sieved at enormous pressure through seven filters before being extruded. All tubes are inserted into a mould and inflated for vulcanization to ensure constant wall thickness and high air pressure retention.
Reliability. All tubes are inflated and stored for 24 hours in order to test for air pressure retention. Afterwards each, individual tube undergoes a careful visual inspection. This special quality control helps prevent unpleasant surprises and is why, over many years, Schwalbe tubes have become highly respected for outstanding reliability by bicycle dealers.
Group tube system. Only high elasticity and good quality allows a tube to cover very many tire sizes.
Valve. All valves are nickel plated and threaded and valve inserts are replaceable. Also Schwalbe tubes with the classic bicycle valve are capable of pressure testing thanks to a high pressure valve seal. And it is plain to see as each tube is crowned with a transparent polycarbonate dust cap.

Item not arrived?
Most of our items are sent through EVRI and DHL. Generally speaking they will leave a note if they have called to deliver and you were not at home. However, we know of several cases where this has not happened, so please ring your local delivery office first to see whether the item is there.
Please wait for the appropriate delivery time to pass before contacting us about an item which has not arrived.
If your item does not arrive within the specified times then it is our responsibility to find your item. Please contact us so we can track the shipment and make the necessary arrangements with the couriers. When the item is more expensive additional insurance will be included in your price.
Damaged or lost item/s?
If your package arrives damaged or has missing items it is imperative that it is either signed for as damaged or photos are taken of the damaged package. We need the evidence to be able to claim against the couriers and without it we cannot issue a refund or replacement to you.
