Tube recommendations for Clement X'PLOR MSO 700x40mm tires

Got a gravel bike ordered with the subject-mentioned tires, and was wondering what tubes would be ideal to have on hand.

Basically any tube that will fit and has the correct length valve is good.

These are lighter than typical tubes and come in gravel tire widths.

These are absurdly light and claim to be stronger than burly tubes. Not inexpensive though.

In addition to the above, I might suggest tubes with a removable valve core, just in case you want to put sealant inside. It won't work as well as true tubeless setup but it's successfully gotten me home after some small punctures.

If you're running disc brakes, I'd recommend Latex tubes. I think they hold up better for gravel riding. Challenge makes some larger width ones for Gravel.

Tubeless if compatible.

+1 for tubeless, 30psi on 40mm tires is fantastic.
