Our era have seen two, four wheeler’s tyres to get replaced with tubeless tyres. So, the doubt still comes in mind, which one is better tube or tubeless tyre. And also what the difference between tube and tubeless bike tires. Your every doubt about tube and tubeless tyre will be clear.
What is a tube tyre?
A tube tire(American English) or tyre(British English) is used earlier, even it is used today only in some of the bikes. In tube tyre as the name suggest tube, there is a tube inside the tyre where air is inflated. This tube tyre have served us for a long time. The problem with this tyre is that in case of puncture the whole air get release at the same time. So, in the middle of the road if your tyre gets puncture nothing to do, you have to take your bike by walking, or if you carry air filler and puncture kit you have to open tyre for that. Only this can be done if you have found out where the puncture occur. This repairing is not easy task in the middle of the road.
What is tubeless tyre and how it works?
A tubeless tyre is a tyre without tube, i.e, the air is inflated directly into the tyre. The nozzle of the tubeless tyre is big and the the mouth of the nozzle inlet(the part from where air is inflated into the tyre) is small. The tubeless tyre is made in such a way that it can hold air, normal tube tyre can’t hold air. After puncture you can easily ride your vehicle 30-50 Km and get your puncture mix by mechanics. Thus, it is more reliable. Also, the puncture repairing time is less than the tube tire. In tubeless tyre, the wheel is not needed to take out to fix puncture like that of tube tyre.
So, now lets us study difference between tube and tubeless bike tires.
Difference Between Tube and Tubeless tyre(Advanatages/Disvantages):
|TUBE TYRE||TUBELESS TYRE|
|In case of Puncture the whole air get out at the same time,||In case of Puncture the air comes out slowly, so you can ride 30-50 Kms more with puncture tubeless tyre|
|As, the air pressure when releasing is too high the tyre can burst.||Tyre may brust when its get too much old but not problem of burst while puncture|
|Tube tyres weigh more because of the extra tube it have.||Generally, lesser in weight than tube tyre|
|Tube Tyre are more prone to Puncture||Tubeless tyre are less prone to Puncture.|
|Tube tyre are time consumer in repairing puncture||Tubeless tyre take less time in repairing|
|In case of Puncture you have to take out the whole wheel and fix.||That is not the case with tubeless tyre.|
|Tube tyres are cheaper than tubeless tyres||Tubeless tyres are more costlier than tube tyre|
|The shock absorbing is better in tube tyre as compared to tubeless tyre. But in general you will not feel that||The shock absorbing is less in tubeless tyre with compared to tube tyre.|
|The durability is less in tube tyre.||The durability is more in tubeless tyre.|
|The air fill is less required. You can pump your tyres and the pressure is maintained longer.||As, compared to tube tyre the pressure get decreased fast, so after 10-15 days you have to pump it again.|
Tubeless tyre are more reliable than tube tyre.
