CBoardman Super Light Innertube

Boardman

I recently thought I’d give these innertubes a go as they were advertised as ‘superlight’ and were £2 less than the Continental Supersonics.  When I was buying them I thought the box felt a bit heavy and when I got them home found that they weighed the same as my bog standard Continental inner tubes which I could have bought for £3.00 less.

I can’t tell you anything about them performance wise as I shoved them back in the box and went and swapped them for the Continental Supersonics.

What the others say…

A quick search doesn’t bring up any independent website reviews.  Across the reviews on the Halfords site, the Boardman Super light innertube range don’t score above 2  due to various issues.

Verdict

I’m not a weight weenie but advertising something as superlight when it clearly isn’t doesn’t score high with me.  Additionally, other reviews suggest there’s flaws with the product itself.
