Replacing standard rim tape or rim strip, Caffélatex Tubeless Tape makes rims air-tight, sealing spoke holes. It allows tubeless conversion of most bicycle wheels, using Tubeless or Tubeless-Ready tires, Caffélatex Tubeless Valve, and Caffélatex sealant.
Easy to Use
Replacing standard rim tape or rim strip, Caffélatex Tubeless Tape makes rims air-tight, sealing spoke holes. It easily adapts to rim internal profiles and, thanks to its low memory, it doesn’t ‘spring back’ once put down in the rim channel, for increased stability. Its adhesion is state-of-the-art.
Caffélatex Tubeless Tape is not your average “multi-purpose” tape. Relying on polyester instead of common PVC material, Caffélatex Tubeless Tape is light, thin, and highly resistant to damage and pressure. Its special adhesive doesn’t have the immediate tack of natural rubber glues used in cheaper tapes, but develops a stronger bonding over time and is much more tolerant to temperature and humidity changes and aging.
At Effetto Mariposa we are not obsessed with lightness, but we certainly like light parts. Caffélatex Tubeless Tape has gained the reputation for being the perfect complement to featherweight wheels: in size M, it adds only 5,5 g to a 29” mountain bike wheel!
Before gluing Caffélatex Tubeless Tape inside the rim, carefully clean the rim channel with a degreaser and a clean cloth, removing any trace of grease or lubricant. Remove any eventual trace of dried-up degreaser with a dry, clean cloth.
Use a sharp spike or a screwdriver to make a round Caffélatex Tubeless Tape at the valve hole. Avoid using a cutter knife and doing an “X” cut: that might prevent proper air-tightness at the valve base.
Caffélatex Tubeless Tape is available in six widths:
Each width (S, M, L, Plus S, Plus M, Plus L) is available in two length options, 8 m, and 50 m Shop rolls. To preserve the tape properties over time, each tape can be stored inside its re-sealable bag.
Made in Italy.
