Its a simple question, what tubes are the best to run on your downhill bike in regards to weight and reliability?

I have been running tubeless for the last two years and have decided to make the switch back to tubes just because I'm starting to travel more and tubeless has become a hassle.

I'm thinking Maxxis Welter Weight Tubes as they seem to be a good middle ground.

Suggestions?

I use Maxxis DH tubes. Ive been using them for about 5 years and never had a flat. weight isnt an issue.

run good tires (dual or 1.5 ply) and half sensible pressures then the type of tube shoudn't matter, i use whatever i have, xc stuff mostly and very rarely puncture. Weight does matter, on the wheels more than anywhere Razz
