Not all modern mountain bike rims are tubeless compatible, so if you want to take the tubeless plunge but don't want to invest in new wheels, the Effetto Mariposa Caffelatex Tubeless strip is the answer.

  • Lightweight, puncture resistant transparent rim strip makes tubeless conversion easy
  • Fit strip and valves to wheels, add sealant to tubeless or tubeless-ready tyres, inflate and go for a ride
  • Long lasting construction can be moved from wheel to wheel
  • Sold as a kit including two rim strips and two 40mm tubeless valves

While more and more rims are designed from the outset to be used with tubeless and tubeless-ready tyres, there are still a huge number only designed to take tubes. Rather than investing in a new set of wheels, the Effetto Mariposa Caffelatex Rim Strip allows you to convert your regular inner-tube only wheels to tubeless-ready, so you can enjoy puncture-free riding.

When using the Caffelatex Rim Strip, you can remove your current rim tape or cloth and install the strip. This is the first step in setting your wheels and tyres up tubeless. The strip helps to make the rim as air tight as possible. When combined with the tyre sealant, this keeps the tyres inflated and more resistant to punctures. The width of the tape varies, so you must select the right size for your rim. The “Small” Kit suits rims with an external section of 20-24mm, “Medium” suits 25-29mm and “Large” suits 30-34mm wide rims. Once the strip and valves are installed you can install your tubeless or tubeless-ready tyres, add your sealant of choice, inflate the tyres and you're good to go! You can finally kiss punctures goodbye. 

The strips and valves are incredibly durable, so you can easily swap them between wheels if you need to. Thanks to the Effetto Mariposa Caffelatex Rim Strip, you no longer need to have a set of expensive tubeless or tubeless-ready wheels to enjoy the benefits of such a setup.
