Espresso is an inflate and repair cartridge: it allows cyclists to repair punctures quickly, injecting a foam of Caffélatex through Presta valves. Ideal for road, triathlon and off-road cycling. Made in Italy.
* Quick repair in case of puncture, no need to remove the wheel * Easy to use silicone tube that fits directly on the valve (only for Presta valves) * Ideal for road, triathlon and gravel/off-road cycling * It doesn’t contain ammonia or other corrosive substances * Permanent repair
Espresso is single-dose (one cartridge for one tire) and only works with Presta valves. Delivery can be interrupted and resumed at will by pressing the nozzle button. Pressure: Espresso can inflate a 23mm tire to approximately 5 bar, a 40mm tire to approximately 2 bar. It is possible to inflate the tire further after using Espresso.
Quick repair: Espresso allows the repair punctures quickly, by injecting a foam of Caffélatex (synthetic latex-based sealant) through the Presta valve. This avoids the need of removing the wheel, saving precious time: less than a minute is enough to inflate and repair road or off-road tires.
Easy to use, Espresso is designed to work simply and effectively, eliminating possible problems. For example, we have eliminated the common threaded adapter (in plastic or brass) between the tube of the canister and the valve - a potential point of leakage of foam, if not threaded in correctly - by switching to a flexible silicone tube. This tube is unique in its kind and fits directly onto the Presta valve, so that the special repairing foam (based on Caffélatex) penetrates directly into the tire, without leaks.
Espresso contains Caffélatex liquid and propellant: the first performs the puncture repairing action, the second inflates the tire. Caffélatex is an ammonia-free sealant, harmless for tires and rims. For this reason Espresso does not damage the inner tubes, not even the latex ones used for high-end tubulars.
IMPORTANT: if the Caffélatex sealant is already present inside the tire, Espresso can still be used to facilitate the repair of the puncture and increase the inflation pressure.
