The Airstop is not the lightest inner tube on the market but by no means the heaviest. It has a consistent and decent amount of rubber in the wall to give you confidence whilst out on the road. I've never had an issue with tearing around base of the valve or a randon rupture of the tube itself.
I typically run these at 110-115psi.
The valve stem will corrode a little with long term use in the wet so you need to keep the cap on. Also like any inner tube, over time the valve can bind a little requiring you to pop the valve first before adding additional air.
The tube holds pressure well on par with the similar offering from Schwalbe or Continental.
I only tend to throw these tubes out if they have so many patches on them they reasemble a pin cushion, or they have coped a non-repairable puncture

Great so far. Replaced Continental tubes with Michelin.
These tubes don't use screw in valves. Screw in valves are a problem for my pump, which tends to unscrew the valve as you remove the pump head.
Great tube to suit clincher tyres in the country roads in SA. Able to hold air at higher pressures for a reasonable time. 1-2 weeks averaging 200+kms week.
buy these all the time perfect
the plastic valve stem left me a bit cold. But it has not failed me yet. Next time I would buy a tube with a metal valve stem
These are a little more expensive than ordinary rubber tubes, but are much more resistant to tearing and puncture. I love them for my weekly ride.
I have used these tubes before. they are generally free of defects and trustworthy. Its good to pull one out of the kit when you have a flat and know it will get you home!
good product,speedy delivery.
Good quality tube
Non-threaded valve stem which I prefer
Rubber feels more substantial than some of the cheaper tubes out there
Tried several brands and Michelin are one of the better ones in my opinion
Was recomended by P.Bundy bike shop. Much tougher & better than Schwalbe in every aspect. Michelin is the best.
Hi, Service was great and the product appears top quality, unfortunately I can't use them as the won't work with my bike's wheels. I didn't realise from the listing on your web page that the valves were short , and therefore won't extend far enough past the rim for a pump to fasten on to.
I've now purchased a replacement tube from the local bike retailer and will see if any local riders may need one/some of my purchase.
Thanks for the service, I'll just have to be more careful next time,
