EXCLUSIVE FEATURES:

  • adapt to any rim profile with the included conic adapter
  • light, reliable aluminum body
  • come in 40, 70 and 100 mm lengths

CHARACTERISTICS:

Adaptable

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.

Great look

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.

Available sizes

  • 40 mm length for rim profiles between 10 and 30 mm
  • 70 mm length for rim profiles between 31 and 60 mm
  • 100 mm length for rim profiles between 61 and 90 mm

These plus our 35 mm or 45 mm Caffélatex Valve Extensions allow to fit virtually any rim in the market.

Caffélatex, valves and inner tubes

Being a synthetic latex, Caffélatex is not as intrinsically “sticky” as natural latex sealants, showing a lower tendency to clog valves and valve mechanisms.

Caffélatex and tubulars

No aggressive chemicals: its complete lack of ammonia or aggressive chemicals make Caffélatex benign even with very sensitive latex inner-tubes (like those found on professional level cyclocross tubulars, for example). Caffélatex is perfectly compatible with tubulars with butyl tubes or tubeless-tubulars construction (like Tufo). Long expected lifespan: if used inside tubulars, as their porosity is […] READ ALL
