Seal punctures quickly and easily with Caffelatex.

Unlike standard liquid latex sealants, Effeto Mariposa's unique formula uses Actifoam technology which quickly fills an entire tire, ensuring more effective puncture repair. Caffelatex can be used on your tubeless road or MTB set-up or can be added to any tubular tire or standard clincher inner tube featuring a removable valve core. 250ml.

May be OK, too early to tell

Tried to repair a leaking tubular cyclocross tire but apparently the hole was too big and it didn't work. I've also put this stuff in two other tires as a preventive measure but I haven't used these tires much so it's too early to tell.

It's ok but I don't think it seals large holes in tubeless tires as well as Stans, so I use Caffelatex in tubes only.

I don't dislike it, I just like Stan's sealant more in tubeless clinchers. I think Caffelatex works well in tubes in a traditional tubeless clincher set up.

This sealant really works.

I have been using this product with Dura Ace road tubeless rims and Hutchinson Intensive tires. Caffelatex seals punctures and doesn't corrode the rims.
