Product Description

Carogna double sided adhesive tape for tubulars bridges the gap between previously existing tapes and mastic in terms of gluing performance and heat-resistance.

Key Features:
  • Extremely easy to use compared to mastic
  • Very reliable adhesion, in any condition
  • Once removed, Carogna leaves the rim ready for the next gluing, without additional cleaning
  • Works for road and cyclocross
  • Also available in very convenient Shop rolls

Why we created it:
We started developing Carogna (pronounced “car-own-ya”) double sided adhesive tubular tape with a clear and ambitious goal: to bridge the gap between previously existing tapes and mastic in terms of gluing performance and heat-resistance, while retaining all the advantages of tapes.

In addition to this, we gave specific additional consideration to cyclocross (read the specific how-to guide here!) and mountain-bike tubulars, where specific features are needed from the gluing standpoint.

Universal performance:
Carogna has been tested and is designed to perform flawlessly on any rim material (aluminum, carbon), with any tubular (seamless, handmade, vulcanized sew-ups…), on and off-road.

The tape has two application-specific sides:
Semi-structural and removable on the rim-side: adhesion is guaranteed by industrial-grade acrylic glue, native to the base tape; this means that when removing the tubular (breaking its bond with the rim), the acrylic glue will stay on the tape, not on the rim. Acrylic has a good adhesion on both aluminum and carbon without any specific surface preparation.
Permanent on the tubular side: there’s a 1 mm-thick layer of a recently-developed permanent glue for underwater applications. This thick glue film will move and spread when the tubular is first inflated, ensuring optimized contact with any tubular base tape geometry. Humidity is obviously not an issue, and this glue adheres well to any kind of base tape material (nylon, cotton, poly-cotton) or external finishing (raw, brushed, or coated by neoprene).

Wide temperature range in use:
Once adhesion is set, the use at low temperatures (down to -40°C) is not a problem. Thermal resistance of all materials used in the manufacture of Carogna was a high priority: Carogna will provide a perfect bonding at 150°C for extended periods (hours), exceeding the heat-resistance of even the best mastics and widely exceeding the heat-resistance of any other tubular tape.

Optimized adhesive surface:
Adhesion is very strong and uniform across the whole circumference of the rim for all tubulars and it is also uniform across the tubular base tape. One short-coming of tubular tape to-date has been limited adhesion at the edges of the base tape or in the center of tubulars with a raised center seam. Carogna solves these problems.

Temperature range when mounting :
The ideal thermal range for application of Carogna is between 21°C and 38°C (70 to 100°F), allowing 8 hours to reach 80% of the adhesive strength . Applying the tape below 10°C is not recommended.
We recommend cleaning surfaces (rim and tubular base tape) using iso-propylic alcool or mineral spirits.

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

Tyres Guide

What type of tyre do I need? 

It’s best to choose a bike tyre based on the type of riding you’re going to be doing.  

Road bike tyres 

Road bike tyres are identified by a smooth tread pattern and narrow width for speed and efficiency.  

Mountain bike tyres 

MTB tyres are much wider with chunky tread for added grip on off-road conditions.  

Hybrid/ commuter tyres 

These tyres will often blend characteristics from road and MTB tyres with added puncture protection for daily durability.  

Does tyre width matter?  

Thin tyres are fastest as they have low rolling resistance and are more aerodynamically profiled.  

Wide tyres are more comfortable and stable due to the increased contact patch with the ground.  

How to check your current tyre size? 

Take a look at the sidewall of your current tyres and you’ll see one or two sets of figures;

One is the traditional size like 700x28c or 27.5x2.2.  

The first figure is the tyre diameter (size). The second is tyre width. Note: road bike sizes are in mm, MTB sizes are in inches

The other set of figures you may see is ETRTO sizing like this 28-622.

The first number here is tyre width while the second number relates to wheel diameter.

Here is a comparrison chart for traditional and ETRTO sizing to help you choose the correct tyre size.

Will this tyre fit my wheel?   

Your new tyre must be the same diameter as your current one (to fit your wheel rim).  

Then, you need a choose a tyre which will fit your frame.  

Road bike tyres are generally 21 – 28mm wide 

MTB tyres can range from 1.5”-5” 

To make things complicated road tyres are measured in mm, while MTB tyres are in inches.  

How wide is too wide  

You want to leave at least 4mm clearance between your frame and tyres to prevent rub and allow for mud clearance. 

Measure the following areas on your frame: 

Fork crown (top) 

Brake calipers (make sure you squeeze them) 

Chainstays 

Seatstays 

Subtract 4mm and you’ll have the maximum width your frame can handle.  

What is the best type of tyre for daily riding? 

If you’re commuting, riding and training daily you’ll want a tyre with some form of puncture resistance. 

Puncture resistance often comes in the form of a harder or thicker rubber compound, or a protective layer running underneath the tread pattern.  

What are tubeless tyres 

Tubeless tyres do not have an inner tube. The tyre and rim of your wheel (you need a tubeless ready rim) create an airtight seal with the valve directly mounted on the rim. 

You can run these tyres at lower pressures for an improved ride quality. A bigger contact with the ground means you have improved traction when cornering. 

Tubeless tyres often come with liquid sealant that creates a seal that may heal itself on a small puncture so you can keep riding home.
