Excellent product which will minimise your chances of a puncture
The product quality
Price is on the higher side
Please make the slime liquid available. I have heard it works well for 2 to 3 months and doesnt make the ride heavier
so far so good
After enduring punctures from thorns and small bits of Flint I looked at winter tyres and thought, expensive.
I installed these strips relatively easily and I haven't had a puncture yet.
Slightly harder feel to the wheels but they work ok, so I'm happy and its relatively cheap.
I recently got a puncture on my road bike which slashed my road tyres and when shopping for new tyres I saw this product on the shelf. Im a commuter and thought it would save me some bike maintenance if i had these in my tyres.
How wrong I was.
I fitted them correctly with no overlap or gap and after no more than 5 days (40 miles) the inner tube received a puncture from the ends pinching the top of the innertube. After taking them out in frustration I then noticed how better the ride was. Without the strips its a lot more smoother and comfortable ride. With them in the bike feels very solid, heavy and is in all alot more effort to pedal.
I normally love BTWIN products but don't buy this you'll be wasting time and money.
Pinches inner tubes, uncomfortable ride
I will forward your experience on to the product manger at b'Twin.
I have had previously received similar feedback from a couple of customers. I can understand why the product would make the ride a little harder but why it creates additional punctures sound somewhat self defeating.
I had a quick read of the french website and they mention the use of an adhesive to join the two ends once cut.
I will await the product manager's reply.

Avoid avoid avoid !!! Go for slime tubes instead
There are none
The overlap pinches the tubes
I'm sorry to read that the b'Twin anti puncture trips have not worked as expected.
As long as the strips are cut to the correct length and there is no overlap, you should not encounter any issues. It may be worth checking this.
The product managers at b'Twin will pick up on this review and will check the product.
If you want to return the product to store for a refund, please don't hesitate. Even without your receipt, it would not not be a problem.
