Get to know your valves

Presta

  • Lower weight
  • Needs no cap
  • Built for higher pressures
  • Will not clog with mud
  • Skinny and Light

Schrader

  • Heavy
  • Fills with mud
  • can leak air
  • needs no adapter for old pumps or filling station pump
  • Fat and Heavy

Basically we would always run a Presta valve if given a chance. On a road bike it really is the only game in town. On a Mt. bike it is more common on bikes above $500.
