Description

Tubeless Conversion Kit Tech Video

In this Caffélatex Tubeless Conversion KIT Tech Video, Effetto Mariposa showcases a tubeless conversion for home mechanics.

Caffélatex Tubeless Conversion Kit

To take full advantage of Caffélatex sealant, Effetto Mariposa created the Tubeless Conversion kits, to convert standard mountain-bike wheels into tubeless ones.

 

List of the items in the kit:

  • 1 bottle of Caffélatex sealant, 250 ml
  • 1 Caffélatex Injector
  • 2 Presta Caffé Tubeless Valves with Removable Valve Cores (RVC) (44mm length)
  • 1 Presta valve key

And either:

  • 1 roll of Caffé Tubeless (improved) Tape 21mm/5m (RACE)
  • 1 roll of Caffé Tubeless (improved) Tape 25mm/5m (HEAVY-DUTY)

 

 

CaffeLatex vs. Standard Latex-Based Sealants

The Caffelatex Tubeless Kits have been developed for Tubeless, Tubeless-Ready and TNT (Tube No Tube) and 2Bliss mountain bike tires, manufactured according to UST standards.

Tire & Wheel Compatibility

Compatible Tire Types

The Caffélatex Tubeless Kit has been developed for Tubeless, Tubeless-Ready, TNT (Tube No Tube) and 2Bliss mountain bike tires, manufactured according to the UST fitting diameter.

UST Tire Types

Notice: the use of a Caffélatex Tubeless Kit with standard tube-type tyres is done under the user's sole responsibility.

External Width of the Rim Section determines Tape Width

Caffelatex Race Tape is for rims with an external section from 22 to 25mm (for example: MavicXC717, XM719, American Classic 350, DT4,1, DT4,2, Notubes Olympic, ZTR355, Arch, FRMXMD333, etc...)

Caffelatex Heavy-Duty Tape is for rims with and external section from 25 to28mm (for example: Mavic EX721, Notubes Flow, etc...)

External Rim Section Width for Tape Selection

Kit requires the Rims to be Drilled for Presta Valves

In order to use the kit successfully the wheels / rims must be PRESTA-DRILLED (1/4" valve hole). NO SCHRADER VALVE HOLES (21/64" valve hole).

Rims Drilled for Presta Valves is a Must

 

Tire Size determines Amount of Caffelatex to Use

It depends upon your tire size and brand. We suggest the following amounts of Caffelatex:

Bike TypeTire SizeAmount of Caffélatex
Road Bikesall25 ml -> 50 ml
MTB26 x 1.50 through 2.1050 ml
MTB26 x 2.10 +100 ml
MTB snow tire26 x 3.7 +150 ml
MTB29 x 1.50 through 2.0050 ml
MTB29 x 2.00 +100 ml

The above figures are some good starting points. Not all tire sizes across all tire brands are created equal. You will need to do some experimentation to find the best amount to use.

Tips for Use

Using the Caffelatex Injector with RVC Presta Valves

Tubeless Presta Valves

Using a RVC (Removable Valve Core) Presta valve is highly recommended. Remove the entire metal fitting from the end of the injector tube. Remove the valve core from the Presta valve. Next slide the tube from the Caffelatex injector directly onto the Presta valve.

 

Using the Caffelatex Injector with non-RVC Presta Valves

If using a non-RVC (non removable valve core) Presta valve simply attach the metal fitting on the end of the caffelatex injector tube onto the Presta valve.

If you are not removing the valve core mechanism, it is recommended to immediately inflate the tire with a pump after injecting the sealant through the valve. This cleans the valve internals.

 

Using the Caffelatex Injector with Schrader Valves

This injector also works with Schrader valves. Remove the Presta valve adapter portion of the metal fitting (the first metal piece on the end of the injector tube). Then attach the metal fitting at the end of the Caffelatex injector tube on to the Schrader valve.

It is recommended to immediately inflate the tire with a pump after injecting the sealant through the Schrader valve. This cleans the valve internals.

  • 1 roll of Caffé Tubeless (improved) Tape 25mm/5m (HEAVY-DUTY)
