Best tubeless sealant 2023: keep your tyres turning

Prevent punctures and seal snakebites with the best tubeless sealant

Effetto Mariposa Caffelatex
Best for fast sealing of small holes

+ Foaming system gets to a puncture fast
+ Non-toxic and non-corrosive making it useable for tubular tyres as well
+ Customisable puncture protection with purchase of sealant additive
- Won’t plug the largest holes

What makes the Effetto Mariposa Caffelatex special is that it foams up and coats the inside of the tyre, and as the tyre rotates, this constant action of foaming keeps the sealant from sitting in one spot at the bottom of the tyre. This means small punctures will seal faster and you'll never have to stop. The obvious downside is that it only works with small punctures, so it’s perfect for race day situations where the road is smooth and it's unlikely you'll encounter a large puncture.
