I recently purchased these latex tubes to use with my Zonda wheelset and they do in fact make a noticeable difference with respect to the feel of the ride. You do, though, have to be extremely careful in installation, making sure to check the full perimeter before inflating to full pressure. I made this mistake on two separate occasions, so learn from my errors. It is a little more work to make sure the tires are properly inflated since they do lose pressure fairly quickly but the difference in the ride is worth it. Ribble's price was excellent and delivery was reasonable. Thanks.

Love these tubes
So far these have been phenomenal tubes. I could immediately feel the difference between these and the standard butyl tubes with which I'm accustomed. The feeling is hard to articulate, but they seem more supple and feel faster. I'm a believer.

The best features of these is the smooth fast ride. They really make a difference, just like going from an alloy bike to carbon! Yes, they make that much difference. They are fast but... the down side is that they are delicate. Care needs to be taken not to pinch the tube when installing. Best not to be in a hurry when installing them.
They repair just like butyl tubes - easy! People often comment that they loose air very slowly, overnight, maybe 10psi or there abouts. Best to check tyre pressure daily. In my view, it is well worth it.
