Valve Extension Compatability

Does the CX Chrono Tubular have a removable valve similar to the new 320TPI Corsa CX that I bought from you recently (so I can use the extenders that I already have)?
Thanks
Ken
Best answer
They do NOT have the red removable valve as on the Evo CX corsa but the valve core can be unscrewed.
