Replacing standard rim-tape, Caffélatex Tubeless Tape perfectly adapts to rim internal profile and makes standard rims air-tight, sealing spoke holes. It will allow tubeless conversion of most standard mountain bike wheels, allowing the use of Tubeless, Tubeless-Ready, 2Bliss and TNT (Tube No Tube) tyres and Caffélatex sealant.
Two different widths are available:
Race: yellow, for rims with external section between 20 and 24mm;
Heavy-Duty: red, for rims with external section between 25 and 29mm.
Before gluing Caffélatex Tubeless Tape inside the rim, carefully clean the rim-bed, removing any trace of grease or lubricant (use alcohol or other de-greaser, then - VERY IMPORTANT – clean carefully with a clean, dry cloth. Adhesion of the tape on dried-up alcohol is not good). Use a sharp spike or a screwdriver to make a round hole in Caffélatex Tubeless Tape at the valve hole. AVOID using a cutter knife and doing an “X” cut, that would prevent proper air-tightness at the valve base.
