MICHELIN Protek Max / Puncture resistant inner tube

MICHELIN Protek Max

EUROBIKE AWARD

EUROBIKE AWARD

Ultra resistant to punctures
Thanks to its uneven design, the Protek Max inner tube has a compression reaction in the event of piercing (the hole closes up naturally) whereas a classic inner tube has an extension reaction (balloon effect). The self-plugging effect is increased by the built-in sealant which is added during the manufacturing process.
Easy to fit
Thanks to its square profile, the Protek Max inner tube is naturally positioned in the rim well and does not twist, unlike a completely tubular classic inner tube.
Excellent pressure maintenance
Protek Max needs to be inflated two times less often than a classic MICHELIN Airstop.
