    • Effetto Mariposa Vegetalex Tyre Sealant (1000ml)

  • Effetto Mariposa Vegetalex Tyre Sealant (1000ml)

    Featuring a biodegradable and totally plastic-free formula, this 1000ml bottle of high-quality tyre sealant is great for the environment. In addition, its revolutionary design makes it long-lasting as well as providing riders with a high level of puncture protection for tubeless, tubular and inner-tube applications.

    Extremely Durable

    Durability was one of the priorities for the Végétalex project. As it doesn’t rely on the solidification of a liquid polymer to fix punctures, rather on a sophisticated mix of different shapes and sizes of natural particles with xanthan gum, Végétalex has a long ‘active’ lifespan inside tyres.

    Starting at three months in worst-case scenarios (very porous tyres in hot weather and a small quantity of sealant), Végétalex will keep repairing punctures for more than six months inside most tyres. This makes it also suitable for inner-tube applications.

    • Plant-based Puncture Repairing Ingredients: Most tyre sealants employ slowly biodegradable liquid polymers (like natural or synthetic latex) to repair punctures; Végétalex instead contains only plant-based particles and fibers – finely ground olive stones and cellulose fibers – to deliver a tremendous puncture clogging effect. This mix, held together by xanthan gum (produced from simple sugars), fixes punctures ranging from small tyre porosities to bigger cuts (up to 5 mm) fast and in a permanent way.
    • Lightweight: Végétalex has been finely tuned to obtain a high mobility, so that a small quantity goes a long way in terms of coverage of the inner surface of the tyre. For Végétalex, we suggest using about 20% more than the quantities recommended by the iCaffelatex app for Caffélatex. As an example, for a 29×2.10 (54-622) tubeless-ready tyre iCaffélatex recommends a minimum of 70 ml (approx. 2 1⁄2 oz.) of Caffélatex or 84 ml (approx. 3 oz.) of Végétalex.
    • Compatible with the use of CO2 Cartridges: Végétalex isn’t damaged by the use of CO2 cartridges.
    • Low Maintenance: Being able to ‘forget’ about tyre sealant is the dream of tubeless tyre users. Especially those of us who don’t ride too often, wondering whether the sealant is still liquid inside our tyres (or not) is a worry that can spoil the pleasure of a ride. We say that Végétalex is ideal for e-bikes because e-bikers often have to deal with more complex machines, batteries, and electronics; a sealant that’s low maintenance is surely a welcome change. Using more structured tyres, like those specific for e-bikes, Végétalex will easily last a full season of riding, so that you can spend less time doing bicycle maintenance and more time riding.
    • Easy to Clean: Végétalex doesn’t contain pigments or quickly solidifying polymers so it is very easy to remove from surfaces. Even when dry, Végétalex can be cleaned with soapy water and a brush.
