And need these Vittoria ones to extend it.

They have removable cores which is cool. Want something in black though. Any idea what would work with Vittorias? Need them for 58mm rims.
Quite surprised, I thought, getting myself Paves recently with "normal" valves, that they abandoned this funny valve.
Use some ptfe tape on the threads to limit some of the airloss.
Don't bother with the topeak type extenders that lock the valve; ive had the rubber insert come out and then you're buggered as the extender wont seal as you try to blow it up.
If you're desperate for black, then get some heatshrink and fit it to the extenders. It'll stop them rattling in the rim too
@jekyll, so I unscrew the valve bit (done, see pic) then I screw in something like:

and then I screw the valve bit I removed into the extension? So if I flat I can just remove the valve bit form the extension and fill with sealant..?
My God, who designs this crap. Just make different length valves on tubs!
You just need any extender with removable core. I find Silca ones quite cool with their anti rattling rubber sleeve.

Was trying to screw the top end of the Zipp valve extender directly onto the valve core bit before
Such a div! But means I can go a whole day without buying anything bike related. Yes!
I've a few of the red valves and had no issues. Most of the people i know with them have no issues either.
One guy has loads of issues, but then again he'd struggle to understand how a stick works.
