Effetto Mariposa Carogna Road Tubular Gluing Tape $19.99
Tape for any and all factors.
Bridging the gap between existing tape and mastic tape in terms of gluing performance and heat-resistance, the Carogna Road Tubular Gluing Tape is incredibly easy to use and provides very reliable adhesion in any condition to show why it's a clear-cut riding necessity. Ready for any situation, the Carogna tape's been tested and is designed to perform equally well on any rim material (aluminum, carbon), with any tubular (seamless, handmade, vulcanized sew-ups, etc.), both on and off-road.
Effetto Mariposa understands that different adhesion is required for both the rim and tube, which is why they implemented a double-sided, application-specific design. One side is semi-structural and removable for the rim, where adhesion is guaranteed by industrial-grade acrylic glue that, when removing the tubular, the acrylic glue stays on the tape, not on the rim. Then, the tubular side is permanent thanks to a 1mm-thick layer of permanent glue developed for underwater applications, which moves and spreads when the tubular is first inflated to ensure optimal contact with any tubular base tape geometry.
- Adhesive tape for tubulars with elevated heat-resistance
- Specific side adhesion meets the needs of rims and tubes surfaces
- Tested and designed to perform flawlessly on any rim material
- Strong adhesion stays uniform across the whole rim circumference
Actual weights are measured in-house by the Competitive Cyclist team.

If the glue on the tire side of the EFFETTO MARIPOSA CAROGNA ROAD TUBULAR GLUING TAPE is "permanent", is it possible to mount a new tire on the road in the event of a flat? Can a punctured tire be repaired if the tape stays on the tire instead of the rim?
You cannot, you would have to have a new roll of tape and new tubular tire, or repair your current once, to make it work.
No Reason not to ride Tubulars

Effete Mariposa Carogna tubular tape has completely removed the hassle of changing tubular tires. Pull the old tire off, the tape comes with it, put new tape on, put new tire on, wait 12 hours and ride. Incredibly simple process for what used to be a nightmare of trying to remove all the old glue. And with Vittoria Pit Stop a flat is also no longer a problem. Tubulars are soooo much lighter and nicer to ride you will never go back to tube or tubeless.
