To take full advantage of Caffélatex sealant, we created two complete kits, to convert standard bicycle wheels into tubeless (2 wheels per kit).
Caffélatex Tubeless Conversion Kit has been developed for Tubeless, Tubeless-Ready, 2Bliss and TNT (Tube No Tube) mountain bike tyres, manufactured according to UST fitting diameter.
WARNING: the use of Caffélatex Tubeless Conversion Kit with standard mountain bike tube-type tyres is done under the user’s sole responsibility and the inflation with these tyres might be difficult, due to Caffélatex Tubeless Tape reduced thickness.
Standard road wheels can also be converted to tubeless with Caffélatex Tubeless Conversion Kit.
WARNING: on the road, due to the high inflating pressure, tubeless tyres are the only ones that will function (tube-type tyres will explode… either immediately after mounting them or during a ride, with the risk of serious injuries or death) .
1 bottle of Caffélatex sealant, 250 ml
1 Caffélatex Injector
1 roll of Caffélatex Tubeless Tape (RACE or HEAVY-DUTY version, depending on the kit)

RACE Kit for rims with external section between 20 and 24 mm
HEAVY-DUTY Kit for rims with external section between 25 and 29 mm

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous Stans is better
Funny that, I had the complete opposite experience. Tried using this stuff to seal Continental Speedking supersonic's and it would not seal the porous side walls even after shaking rotating over and over and riding. Tried Stan's in them and they sealed in minutes. Have used Stans in loads of supersonics without a problem since. in my opinion this stuff is nowhere near as good as stans. Cost me £'s to find out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Works better than Stan's
I have used a variety of sealants for tubeless tyres and until I tried Effetto, used Stan's regularly with great effect except for sealing the Continental Supersonic tyres. I could never get them to work tubeless using Stan's but with the Effetto Caffe fluid, I was finally able to get them sealed.
