Effetto Mariposa Caffélatex Tubeless 40mm Valve, Cap and Key (x2)
Caffélatex Tubeless Valve is a great accessory for any tubeless wheel. Like all our products, it’s made in Italy to the highest quality standards.
Thanks to the provided conic adapter, Caffélatex Tubeless Valve works on both Presta and Schrader-drilled rims:
- on Presta-drilled rims (valve hole diameter: 6,5 mm): depending on the rim shape the flat rubber valve base might ensure a perfect air-tightness, without any additional adapter, or the conic adapter might be needed;
- on Presta-drilled with a wider (> 6,5 mm) inside hole, or when used on Schrader drilled rims (valve hole diameter: 8,5 mm):
- we recommend fitting the conic adapter on the valve before inserting it into the rim.
Generally speaking, the conic adapter makes life a lot easier with the various rim profiles, as in some cases a flat-base works better than a conic base, and vice-versa. With Effetto Mariposa valves, the conic adapter allows to pass from flat to conic in a breeze.
Light and reliable
We opted for an aluminum alloy that will bend before breaking, adding reliability to the lightness required by modern rims.
Effetto Mariposa valves come with a red-anodized aluminium cap, to underline their quality and make them easily recognizable even when mounted.
Removable valve core
This feature allows easy mechanism replacement and the fitting of our tubeless-specific Caffélatex Valve Extensions.
Complete with accessories
Each pack includes two Caffélatex Tubeless Valves, two red-anodized aluminium caps, two rubber conic adapters, two nuts, two o-rings and a Presta mechanism/valve extension key.
