Effetto Mariposa Espresso
Works for road and XC tyres the only cartridge functioning also on lenticular wheels easy to use thanks to Presta-only silicone hose doesn’t contain Ammonia.
Multi-purpose: it repairs punctures on tube-type, tubeless and tubular tyres.
Easy to use: the flexible silicone tube of the nozzle fits directly on Presta valves, allowing the use of Espresso even with spokes close to the valve area or lenticular wheels (a unique feature!). Thanks to the lack of adapters on the hose, the special repairing foam (Caffélatex based) goes straight into the tyre, without leaks.
Fast: less than one minute is needed to inflate and repair tyres with sizes from road up to 29×2.20.
Ammonia-free: puncture-sealing action is ensured by ammonia-free Caffélatex sealant, optimized for the pressurized application. Espresso doesn’t damage Caffélatex, if already present inside the tyre, but enhances its action. Dosage: one Espresso cartridge for one tire. Presta valve only.
Pressure: it can inflate a road tyre up to 5 bar and an XC mountain bike tyre at over 2 bar. It’s possible to add more pressure after using Espresso cartridge.
Maximum repairable damage in a tube: inner tubes stretch when inflated – being limited in their expansion only by the tyre – and punctures in a tube tend to change geometry and size depending on the inflating pressure. As punctures in a tube grow in size increasing the pressure, the maximum damage a sealant can repair in a tubeless tyre (where the puncture size and geometry don’t change much with pressure) is bigger than that of an inner tube.
Espresso can generally repair punctures up to 1 mm in tubes, while it’s up to 4 or 5 times more in a tubeless tyre. Size: 75 ml cartridge (155 mm x 35 mm diameter).
