Product Description

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.

Key Features:
  • adapt to any rim profile with the included conic adapter
  • light, reliable aluminum body
  • come in 40, 70 and 100 mm lengths

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.

Great look
Effetto Mariposa valves come with a red-anodized aluminum 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.

Available sizes
40 mm length for rim profiles between 10 and 30 mm
70 mm length for rim profiles between 31 and 60 mm
100 mm length for rim profiles between 61 and 90 mm
These plus our 35 mm or 45 mm Caffélatex Valve Extensions allow to fit virtually any rim in the market.

Complete with accessories
Each pack includes two Caffélatex Tubeless Valves, two red-anodized aluminum caps, two rubber conic adapters, two nuts, two o-rings and a Presta mechanism/valve extension key.

Occasionally, without notice, manufacturers change product design and/or specifications.

Good valve cap
by Anonymous user on 25/03/2020

Didn’t use the valve as wouldn’t fit my rim, but valve cap was nice. Rubber end to valve does not look that robust, would probably look elsewhere.

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.
