New Tubes From Michelin.

          The good folks at Michelin recently added a new tube to the line-up and this is not just another round piece of rubber but a completely new, very profiled design with a square shape to the top and raised sections. It is designed, apparently, so that instead of the rubber being pulled apart it is compressed. This makes a big difference in the event of a puncture, the pressure works with the tube to help seal the hole. Add some sealant to the design and you are good to go, in theory. In practice I have not had much feedback yet but it sounds like a good idea for a trail tube to me.
