Product Description

This tubeless rim-strip makes tubeless conversions easy and quick. Unlike its butyl predecessors (from other brands), Caffélatex Strip is very light, puncture-proof and transparent. Made using a proprietary polymer blend, it is available in nine widths and two different wheel diameters each (26”/27,5” and 29”).

Each kit contains two rim strips complete with tubeless valves. Mounting instructions are shown on the back of the header card.

Why use a Strip when we already have a tubeless conversion tape?

For some applications, the tape is great and it will always be lighter than a strip (8 g against 29 g per wheel... a butyl strip is around 65g). However, the tape takes time and some care/experience to be installed properly. There are then some applications where the tape simply won't work. i.e. the new cut-out rims for the new “+” and FAT size rims.

Sold as kits containing two rim strips and two 40 mm tubeless valves (2 wheels per kit)

Specifications:

Small: 20 - 24mm
Medium: 25 - 29mm
Large: 30 - 34mm

27.5 Plus Small: 35 - 40 mm
27.5 Plus Medium: 41 - 45mm
27.5 Plus Large: 46 - 50mm

26 Fat Small: 60 - 65mm
26 Fat Medium: 75 - 80mm

Tubeless made easy
by Anonymous user on 23/09/2019

Rim tape is a faff,especially on plus rims that are carbon! These are fairly easy to muscle on the enclosed instructions really helped.The valves are separate from the liner which is a nice touch if you need to use longer valves,as the strip is thick latex rather than rubber it means you can use these multiple times without fear of damage, I’m going to order another set for my wife’s bike.

Wheels Guide

What are wheels?

Wheels are probably the second most important part of your bike, after the frame. A lot of the bike’s riding characteristics come from its wheels.

Who needs wheels?

A wheel upgrade can make a massive difference to your bike. Because of this, you might consider a new set of wheels, even if the old ones aren’t worn or damaged.

What are the choices?

Mountain bikers choose their wheels in 26in, 27.5in or 29in size, depending on what their frame is built for. Road bike wheels are 700c. Beyond this, there’s a dizzying array of rim material and depth, spoke type and hubs galore – enough to make your head spin faster than your wheels.

What should I buy with them?

A wheel upgrade always deserves a lovely new set of tyres. These too have a massive impact on how your bike rides.

Anything else?

There are several approaches to buying wheels – you can buy a full wheelset, for perfect pairing, or you can take a modular approach, picking hubs and rims before having a new set built to your specification.
