    Just a heads up that contrary to what they say in the video about the puncture resistance of tubes is incorrect. A tube is designed to hold air only and has exactly zero structure to resist a sharp object (that is what the tire is designed for).

    In addition, a rim hit that will puncture a tube, will puncture a tube of any reasonable thickness. Again, for the same reason – the tube is designed to hold air only.

    This has been shown to be true in the real world in mountain biking and the previous use of thicker “DH” tubes that is no longer used as they provided no benefits.
