Product Information

The Mitas Tube AV48 26 x 1.75-2.45 is a bicycle inner tube designed for a specific range of tire sizes on 26-inch wheels. Here’s a breakdown of its key features:

  • Size: Fits 26-inch diameter wheels with tires ranging from 1.75 inches to 2.45 inches in width.
  • Valve type: AV valve (also known as Schrader valve) – This is the most common type of valve for bicycle inner tubes. It has a wider base and uses a pin to inflate.
  • Valve stem length: While not explicitly stated, most Mitas AV tubes come with a standard 40mm valve stem length, which should be compatible with most 26-inch rims.
  • Material: Likely butyl rubber – Butyl rubber is the industry standard for inner tubes due to its air retention and durability.

Potential Uses:

  • Mountain bikes: This size is common for many mountain bike tires, especially those used for trail riding or cross-country riding.
  • Hybrid bikes: Some hybrid bikes might have 26-inch wheels and benefit from this inner tube size.
  • Cruiser bikes: Some larger cruiser bikes might use 26-inch wheels with wider tires compatible with this inner tube.

Here are some additional things to consider when buying a Mitas Tube AV48 26 x 1.75-2.45:

  • Existing tire size: Ensure your bike tire size falls within the 1.75-2.45-inch width range. This information is usually printed on the sidewall of your tire.
  • Valve hole size: Make sure the valve hole on your rim is large enough for the AV valve stem.
  • Puncture resistance: If you get frequent flats, consider Mitas’ puncture-resistant inner tube options for added protection.

Mitas AV48 vs. Mitas AV40:

The numbers (40 vs. 48) likely indicate a difference in the wall thickness or material composition of the inner tube. Mitas doesn’t provide detailed specifications on their website, but here are some general assumptions:

  • Mitas AV40: Likely a standard inner tube, ideal for everyday use.
  • Mitas AV48: Might be a slightly heavier duty or thicker inner tube, potentially offering better puncture resistance or accommodating higher tire pressures.

Since the Mitas website lacks specifics, it’s difficult to say for certain. If puncture resistance is a major concern, reaching out to Mitas or a retailer might be helpful to confirm details about the AV48 compared to the AV40.

Overall, the Mitas Tube AV48 26 x 1.75-2.45 is a good option for replacing inner tubes on various 26-inch wheeled bikes with compatible tire sizes. If puncture resistance is a priority, consider researching the AV48’s specifications or opting for a known puncture-resistant Mitas inner tube.
