Tube Pro™ rubber inner tubes are specifically designed for river and recreational tubing applications and are manufactured with our Tube Pro™ brand. Our butyl rubber tubes are reinforced with thicker sidewalls and utilize a small 1” (2.5 cm) rubberized valve stem that is offset and angled downward. Tubes can be used with and without covers. Tube Pro™ river tube covers are constructed from heavy-duty 600 denier polyester canvas with urethane coating for additional strength. Cover bottom designs allow water to easily circulate in and throughout the cover for stability. Polyester is famous for the ability to retain its original color while enduring maximum sunlight exposure. For superior durability and abrasion resistance upgrade to our 19 oz. PVC coated 1000 denier fabric material as the strongest option.
Tube Pro™ inner tubes and river tube covers are designed for commercial river tubing applications. Forty-four inches (110 cm) in outer diameter, the river tube is capable of maintaining buoyancy while supporting a large person. All river tube covers feature canvas bottoms which are excellent for smaller children and cooler transport. All Tube Pro river tube covers are made in North America.
REINFORCED RUBBER INNER TUBES
Our carbon based "butyl" rubber tube inside the cover is reinforced with thicker sidewalls for added protection. Our inner tubes are specifically designed for river and snow tubing applications. Tubes can be purchased and used with and without covers. Our standard R20 is 41" - 44" (102.5 - 110 cm) and smaller R15 is 31" - 33" (77.5 - 82.5 cm) in diameter are made with reinforced rubber sidewalls and complete with our stock 1" (2.5 cm) rubber valve stem.
Heavy-Duty River Tube Covers
Tube Pro river tube covers are constructed from heavy-duty 600 denier polyester canvas. This material is mildew and water resistant, as well as UV protected. Polyester is famous for the ability to retain its original color while enduring maximum sunlight exposure. Polyester does not stick to the skin like some vinyl or plastics, enabling the user to experience maximum comfort.
R20 Rubber Inner Tube Canvas Cover Top features sewn comfort skirt & seat belt webbing support handles for increased rider comfort & tube longevity.
Grommet Bottom Canvas Cover features full canvas bottom with 4 black plastic drainage grommets allows water circulation for rider stability and to contain personal items to minimize river garbage. Most common cover style and is suitable for all river conditions.
Seven Inch Hole Bottom Canvas Cover features full canvas bottom with 7” (17.5 cm) diameter hole enables quick drainage when pulled from the water. This cover style most commonly used when transporting tubes with a pole or canoe trailer. Custom sized holes and hole placement are available upon request.
Our river tube cover skirts are the perfect feature to enhance rider comfort. The fabric creates an ideal barrier to keep the rubber inner tube cool, alleviates bare skin contact with the rubber tube and decrease chaffing. All river tube cover styles are available with or without skirting.
Fully Enclosed Zippered Cover features our zipper seal design completely encases our R20 rubber inner tube for full coverage protection, instant drainage and rider
comfort. Designed for use with standard Tube Pro™ R20 only. Great for those who want the traditional river tube shape but a fully enclosed cover for complete protection. This encased river tube cover model is for the traditional tubing enthusiast. With this conventional "donut" shape river tube cover there is no need for special drainage; it is great to easily get out and repeat rapids and is less likely to get hung up on rocks. The canvas river tube cover protects the rubber inner tube from UV light, to improve tube longevity. The fully enclosed river tube cover encases the rubber inner tube creating a constant pressure environment to decrease inner tube deformities and create a more uniform shape.
Rider support handles on our river tube covers are made from heavy-duty automotive seat belt webbing, and the "W" stitch pattern on our handles is one of the strongest invented. Our durable handles can hold up to being yanked, pulled and linked to other river tubes, Tube Pro™ Cooler Carrier or canoes.
