- adapt to any rim profile with the included conic adapter
- light, reliable aluminum body
- come in 40, 70 and 100 mm lengths
Thanks to the provided conic adapter, Caffélatex Tubeless Valve works on both Presta and Schrader-drilled rims:
- on Presta-drilled rims (valve hole diameter: 6,5 mm): depending on the rim shape the flat rubber valve base might ensure a perfect air-tightness, without any additional adapter, or the conic adapter might be needed;
- on Presta-drilled with a wider (> 6,5 mm) inside hole, or when used on Schrader drilled rims (valve hole diameter: 8,5 mm):
we recommend fitting the conic adapter on the valve before inserting it into the rim.
Generally speaking, the conic adapter makes life a lot easier with the various rim profiles, as in some cases a flat-base works better than a conic base, and vice-versa. With Effetto Mariposa valves, the conic adapter allows to pass from flat to conic in a breeze.
Light and reliable
We opted for an aluminum alloy that will bend before breaking, adding reliability to the lightness required by modern rims.
Effetto Mariposa valves come with a red-anodized aluminum cap, to underline their quality and make them easily recognizable even when mounted.
Removable valve core
This feature allows easy mechanism replacement and the fitting of our tubeless-specific Caffélatex Valve Extensions.
