Michelin C6 Inner Tube Review

Michelin C6 Inner Tube Review - Intro

A review for an inner tube. Don't be daft. Well it is worth saying that these tube are very much worth getting if you are running fat tires. On swapping from 2.0" Schwalbe Big Apples (with Kevlar Guard), to 2.35" Schwalbe Big Apple (with Race Guard), I immediately began getting punctures, I put this down to race guard being worse than kevlar guard, but I think it was because I was using tubes designed for narrower tires.

Since fitting these tires 3 months ago I have not had one puncture despite lots of cycling over hedge trimming from hawthorn and blackthorn bushes. This is unavoidable where I live owing to the country / green lane riding I often do, and the use of mechanised hedge trimmers which splinter wood fragments all over the road.

Michelin C6 Inner Tube Review -In and Out of the Box

The tubes are noticeably heavy than any other I have owned, but I expected this, I am not concerned about the weight of my bike, I just want it to work every time I get on it. These tires are designed for use with up to 2.8" tires and so at 2.35" my Big Apples were at the lower end of the width spectrum.

Michelin C6 Inner Tube Review - Verdict

If you are running wider tires, then really you should run the correct tubes. These tubes would be a good choice as far as I am concerned.
