Part Number: EM078
Availability: In Stock

Tappabuco - 1.5 + 3.5 KIT includes tire plug tools in 1.5 and 3.5 sizes with five pieces each of 1.5 and 3.5mm plugs. The Tappabuco system is ideal for repairing punctures in tubeless tires. When not in use, the plug tool works as end-plug for road and mountain bike handlebars, it can be carried inside most Shimano and SRAM bottom brackets too (it fits holes with inner diameter between 15 and 20 mm).

 

Tire plugs have become a standard way of fixing bigger punctures in tubeless tires. With “Tappabuco” (Italian for hole plugger) Effetto Mariposa offers a practical solution for road and off-road riding that’s easy to carry and fast to use.

Easy to carry

Tire plug tools, because of their sharp shape, should be stored safely. Tappabuco is designed to work as end-plug for road and mountain bike handlebars, and it can be carried inside most Shimano and SRAM bottom brackets too (it will fit holes with inner diameter between 15 and 20 mm). You can keep the plug already loaded in the tool to enable fast puncture repair.

Why a 1.5mm tool? Bigger, more common 3.5 mm plugs are great for bigger punctures on mtb tires, but a 1,5 mm plug is often for smaller damage on road and gravel tires. having both available is simply better. The bad reputation of 1.5 mm plugs is due to the common  mistake of using these small plugs with big plug tool; they open the hole more than size of the plug. The tiny, dedicated 1.5mm Tappabuco plug tool prevents this occurrence.

IMPORTANT: Depending on the internal surface of the handlebar, it could be easier or more difficult to remove Tappabuco.  Before you set off, try extracting Tappabuco after inserting it into your handlebar. If it’s too difficult to remove easily, by hand, lubricate the internal surface of the handlebar so that you can remove the tool easily and repair punctures quickly.

The Tappabuco plug tool is made of high density silicone with a stainless steel fork, for maximum durability and adaptability. Weight is just 11gm for Tappabuco 1.5 and 13gm for Tappabuco 3.5.
