Hi, from Denmark.
Any tips for 26" super-light tubes in the 1.30"-1.50" range ?
I have the Schwalbe 12A at around 123gr. -and they work fine!
Are there any lighter ones ?

Hi,
I use the 12A as well and can confirm that weight.
Not tried any other!

Try a 650 road tube. Maxxis Fly weight probably ~50g and I think it will work fine.

Hi. Gregorio.
650 tubes.. Maxxis Fly ! I must try these.
I already uses Continental 650x18/25 for My slimmest 1.10" set-up (they are also sub 50gr)
Thanks for the fine tip.. Now I must search for Maxxis Fly !

-I have just been on Maxxis homepage.
I couldn't find the 650's mentioned.
They produces the Fly MTB version at around 100gr. (for slightly bigger tires),
and the 700X18/25C Black Presta at around 50gr.
Where can I find these 650's, that will fit in my 26" Race Wheels ?

I am sorry for the confusion. I thought you were looking for 700c / 29er wheels. I am not positive they make 650 tubes and not sure a 650 tube will work in a 26" rim.

I have used 26" mtb tubes on a 29er but not visa versa.
"Maxxis Fly Weight" 700c road tubes weigh in at 52g or so
