Product Description

When using double-sided adhesive tapes, cleaning of the surfaces is paramount for a proper adhesion. For cycling, Cyclocross in particular requires a perfect gluing performance, only achievable when both rim and tubular surfaces are clean and ready: enters Eau de Carogna tubular base tape primer!

Eau de Carogna primer cleans the tubular base tape and optimizes adhesion to Carogna tape

Cyclocross specific, but ideal whenever tubulars are used at low pressure

A plus for artisanal tubulars inflated at low pressure

Not all tubulars are created equal, and the material and finishing used for tubular base tape can vary a lot among the different brands.
As far as Carogna tubular tape is concerned, this variability is not a problem if tubulars are inflated at high pressure and mounted correctly (read more here).

In Cyclocross, due to the very low inflating pressures, extra care should be taken.
Cyclocross tubulars of the main brands (Clement, Tufo, Vittoria, Dugast, FMB, Challenge, Schwalbe…) have been glued and raced with success with Carogna tape, but the base tape ability to ‘stick’ can be largely altered by transportation, storage, humidity and cleaning products, especially with unprotected, natural cotton base tapes.
Eau de Carogna tape primer is a gluing primer, preparing the tubular base tape to properly and quickly bond to Carogna glue: one less thing to worry about, preparing Cyclocross wheels for race day 

Eau de Carogna is not needed for road applications (given the higher pressures, ideal for a pressure-activated adhesive tape) but might be an additional guarantee for Cyclocross and other off-road practices, where tubulars are inflated at a much lower pressure and totally rely on the glue strength for their function.

Please Note: 50ml of liquid is supplied, but in a larger volume bottle.

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