If your tires have a chronic, premature 'make explosion' problem, keep a 4 Pack of Cutter Wide Premium MTB Tubes for back up—you'll always have a rubber ready for long-lasting action. The super-fat 26x2.1-2.5 tubes provide plenty of fill for your DH machine's wide rubbers.
These tubes work as intended. I have ridden over many miles and some nasty stuff with these and they have held up well and seem to be pretty resistant to flats. I go on a couple rides a week when trials are free of snow around Utah and one 4-pack has lasted me well over a year. Plus at the sale price it's an easy way to stock up and always have spare tubes on hand.
These have held up pretty well for as cheap as they are and fit wider tires really well. At the sale price you can even afford to bring some along for when your buddies have a blow out and keep them from ruining your day.
Great tires, good price, but I would be weary of using them on big DH pursuits, I ride singletrack, but dont hit the big drops and obstacles, etc, so they work for me. Great for a around the town ripper.
I have never had an issue with these. I have gone through two sets in the last 1-2 years or so and they do the trick and no faulty ones thus far.
Tubes. Pretty simple. They aren't anything special, but for a 4-pack the sale price is great. Stock up! They fit wider tires well. The lifetime warranty from Cutter doesn't hurt wither.
Great tubs a touch heavier then normal tubes but last 3 times as long just make sure u tighten the removable stems or u will loose air
Yeah they go flat sometimes...just like every other tube I've ever used. So why pay more for something thats going to have the same result.
I used to think tubes were tubes. How could they mess up such a simple product? Why pay $5-10 for premium ones? Well, apparently, the process of making tubes is a delicate process and hasn't been perfected over the centuries by all. Cutter must've picked up a clueless start-up as a source, that or their rejects are being supplied.
I major design flaw is likely the unthreaded valves that don't screw down to be secure against the rim. 2 out of the 4 tubes developed slits right around the base of the valve, which cannot be patched. You can't even use the valves for ghetto tubeless, for when you get sick of flats with tubes, since they can't be tightened down to seal the valve hole. Also, if you inflate it outside of a tire, you will find some sections bulge out in a shape that looks like an muscular arm with big forearms and massive biceps--if that's any way to judge for poor quality, these would be a showcase winner. I think their best use is to simply act as big rubber bands.
To top it all off, these are more expensive than other generics. Don't waste your money. Try Q-tubes for some quality but inexpensive tubes.
don't touch these with a ten-foot pole, they're total garbage. the stems are so poorly constructed that when you try to unscrew the pump from them the whole stem comes apart! if i didn't have a multitool with pliers on it with me yesterday (to clamp it back down) i would have been totally stranded in the tahoe wilderness. save money elsewhere and buy good tubes, and if you ever meet Mr Cutter, please kick him in the nuts for me.
These don't deserve even one star. Flat after flat after flat. At best they have 2-3 hours of life to them. I bought two four-packs and the cheap price does not make up for the ruined rides and my frustrated friends who were stuck waiting for me. Not uncommon to go through three of these in a single day. Crap.
and may not buy another Cutter branded item based on these. They were marked ?Merrick? on the tubes. Are these just repackaged and sold under Cutter branding?
Had trouble with the stem tearing prematurely on one. Another wouldn't hold air more than a few days.
Only lasted a few weeks of riding then had a blow out for each tube I ran, but for a cheap tube, alright for the short term I guess.
I have been running these and the heavy duty version of them in my bikes all summer. Each tube weighs in around 229.5 Grams which is not light but for an affordable tube is not bad. So far I have only had 2 flats with these tubes, one pinch flat from a failed attempt at hoping up a 5 stair which also flattened my rim, the other from a goat head after riding through some brush. I cannot complain about these tubes and for the cost they are a great value. I would recommend these to anyone not concerned with weight. If you run a downhill rig I recommend a heavier duty tube. Stem length on this is 5 cm.
For the price these are great to have a round. Just throw a pack in the back of your car or in your tool box. They are a good quick fix but i have noticed that the seems tend to split and separate after not too many miles.
