Every now and again someone will ask me what is the difference between a Presta Valve and a French Valve on a bicycle tube. The answer is very simple: nothing! Some companies prefer to call them French valves, we prefer to call the Presta valves but it doesn’t matter too much – they’re 100% the same thing.

All of our tubes are available for purchase on our online store.
