Espresso

Espresso is an inflate & repair cartridge for the demanding cyclists and racers, both on and off-road.
Doesn't contain Ammonia or other aggressive chemicals.
The one and only functioning even on lenticular wheels!

EXCLUSIVE FEATURES:

  • works for road and XC tyres
  • the only cartridge functioning also on lenticular wheels
  • easy to use thanks to Presta-only silicone hose
  • doesn’t contain Ammonia

CHARACTERISTICS:

Multi-purpose:

it repairs punctures on tube-type, tubeless and tubular tyres.

Easy to use:

the flexible silicone tube of the nozzle fits directly on Presta valves, allowing the use of Espresso even with spokes close to the valve area or lenticular wheels (a unique feature!).
Thanks to the lack of adapters on the hose, the special repairing foam (Caffélatex based) goes straight into the tyre, without leaks.

Espresso è una bomboletta gonfia e ripara che risponde alle esigenze dei ciclisti più esigenti e degli agonisti, su strada e fuoristrada Non contiene ammoniaca o altre sostanze aggressive. La sola ed unica che funziona anche con ruote lenticolari!
The only inflate and repair cartridge for lenticular wheels!

Fast:

less than one minute is needed to inflate and repair tyres with sizes from road up to 29×2.20.

Ammonia-free:

puncture-sealing action is ensured by ammonia-free Caffélatex sealant, optimized for the pressurized application. Espresso doesn’t damage Caffélatex, if already present inside the tyre, but enhances its action.

Dosage:

one Espresso cartridge for one tire. Presta valve only.

Pressure:

it can inflate a road tyre up to 5 bar and an XC mountain bike tyre at over 2 bar. It’s possible to add more pressure after using Espresso cartridge.

Maximum repairable damage in a tube:

inner tubes stretch when inflated – being limited in their expansion only by the tyre – and punctures in a tube tend to change geometry and size depending on the inflating pressure.
As punctures in a tube grow in size increasing the pressure, the maximum damage a sealant can repair in a tubeless tyre (where the puncture size and geometry don’t change much with pressure) is bigger than that of an inner tube.
Espresso can generally repair punctures up to 1 mm in tubes, while it’s up to 4 or 5 times more in a tubeless tyre.

Size:

75 ml cartridge (155 mm x 35 mm diameter).

Like all our products, it’s made in Italy.

  1. Hello,
    i got a punctuated tubular and am interested if i have to change the tyre or is the reparation durable with the espresso repair kit?

    1. Hi Sven,
      the reparation is durable. If the puncture is repaired, all you have to do is inflate your tubular and ride. The sealant inside will remain liquid for at least a couple on months, providing a certain degree of puncture prevention. No worries for the (eventual) latex inner tube, as there’s no ammonia inside.

  2. Hi,

    I found a great way to mount a can of ‘Effetto Mariposa Espresso’ by using a Lezyne Nylon Bracket Mount For HV Pump! This bracket is for the mountain bike/high volume pump (not the pump for road bike).

    The nylon bracket/legs will stretch a bit to fit the can and the strap is long enough to secure it!

    1. Hi Alan,
      thanks, there’re indeed several mounts/holders that can be used to carry our Espresso. We still prefer our Espresso Strap and Espresso o.s.f.a. Clip! 🙂

  3. I can’t even buy the two bottle mount for my bike
    I have one more espresso cartridge and I’m hoping
    Stock returns to the U.S. But would still love to
    To get the frame mount that holds two cartridges

    1. Hi Isaac, we share your pain… hopefully waiting will be over soon, Espressos are on their way to the US.

    1. Quality Bicycle Products is soon receiving Espresso… most US bicycle shops will then be able to get the product in house fast!

  4. I’m Trying to get the Espresso Repair Cartridges and they seem to be out of stock everywhere? I would really like 75ml two pack with the clip if its possible to order directly.

    1. Hello Isaac,
      where are you based? If you’re in the US, I know most of our distributors are temporarely out of stock of Espresso (flammable, it has to be shipped by sea… it just takes longer) but the wait will soon be over.
