Caffelatex is a truly innovative tire sealant and puncture preventive. The first of its advantages over standard latex-based sealants comes from a foaming agent(Actifoam), activated by wheel movement. Caffelatex foaming action causes it to fill the tires entire internal cavity, making it much more effective than traditional sealants.
- This is just the sealant, not the complete kit
- 1000ml (typical mtb tire uses 50-100ml)
- Notice the difference!
I decided to try this Caffelatex to see if there was something better out there. There isn't, at least this brand isn't. It's a super thin fluid so makes even more of a mess during set-up.
But the big problem is that it simply doesn't seal as well as Stans. And this is during both set up and riding. After many attempts of getting my tires on the rim I finally stopped the air from leaking out, but with the messy stuff all over the place as it hissed out and sprayed all over the place. The fluid would simply peculate out and not close up the small holes Stans seals instantly.
But even worse...the ride. It leaked out of three separate, small areas, and never sealed, the bubbles they advertised? Well it just bubbled and bubbled and didn't stop. In fact it created these big globs on the tires after it dried. I ended up putting a tube in and when I got home threw the big bottle of CaffeLatex in the trash can....Back to Stans.
PROS: Seals Up Pinholes Fast
PROS: Injects wo core removal, Seals micro punctures
CONS: Squirts out of punctures, Messy
Just for fun, I put some Stan's sealant in the tire and it sealed IMMEDIATELY. Not a hint of leakage and it's still holding air days later.
Ignore the hype and stick with a proven product, Stan's.
CONS: It does not work
