  • Tappabuco is a tyre plug tool ideal for repairing punctures in tubeless tyres. Designed to work as end-plug for road and mountain bike handlebars, it can be carried inside most Shimano and SRAM bottom brackets too (it fits holes with inner diameter between 15 and 20 mm).
    Tyre plugs have become a standard way of fixing bigger punctures in tubeless tyres. With “Tappabuco” (Italian for stopgap or literally hole plugger) Effetto Mariposa wants to offer a practical solution for road and off-road riding, easy to carry and fast to use.
    Tyre plug tools have to be easily reached in case of puncture but – because of their sharp shape – they should be stored in a safe way. Tappabuco solves this, as it’s designed to work as end-plug for road and mountain bike handlebars, and it can be carried inside most Shimano and SRAM bottom brackets too (it will fit holes with inner diameter between 15 and 20 mm). Keeping the rubber tyre plug already in the Tappabuco fork ensures fast puncture repairing of tubeless tyres.
    IMPORTANT: depending on the internal surface of the handlebar, it could be easier or more difficult to remove Tappabuco. Try extracting Tappabuco after inserting it into your handlebar: if it’s too difficult, lubricate the handlebar so that you can remove the tool and repair punctures quickly.

    One of Effetto Mariposa's most popular products is the Caffelatex tire sealant. This sealant is designed to seal punctures as they happen, preventing the need for a repair or replacement tire. It is a liquid sealant that is injected into the tire before use, and it can seal punctures up to 6mm in diameter. The sealant is also biodegradable and non-toxic, making it an environmentally friendly option.

    Another popular product is the Giustaforza torque wrench. This is a precision tool that allows cyclists to accurately tighten bolts to the manufacturer's recommended torque.
