Those are the only ones I know of. I don't know why you'd want anything else though, cost-weight ratio is about the best out there and I haven't read a bad experience with them. Make sure you get the right size though.

I have them on my wheels and they are good. The only additional recommendation I'll give is to use a piece of rim tape over the valve hole, I learnt the hard way by going through a few latex tubes. Since I've put a small piece of rim tape over the valve hole with a small hole cut for the valve to stick through I've had no more flats.
