Effetto Mariposa Carogna tubular tape

Anyone tried the new Carogna tubular tape? http://www.effettomariposa.eu/en/pro...amily/carogna/
I see it's now available from an Amazon seller.

I've had success with Tufo tape when used with tufo tires on clean alloy rims for both road and track, but the Carogna stuff claims to be a novel design and work with all tires...

I like Zinn's video demonstration.

I would love to see someone remove the tape clean from the rim because I'm still a bit scarred from struggling to remove belgian/cxworld tape. Zinn shows a still picture of this, but I almost don't believe it.

The description says it is "Permanent on the tubular side". Interesting, I wonder if that would allow a tubular to be re-mounted...maybe after repairing a puncture. That said, I've had good luck with sealant and haven't actually ever, in my limited experience, needed to repair the tube of a tubular.

Unless you have really bad luck to bust a moderately used tubular, when you start getting punctures is because the tubbie is already ready to leave you, you know.

Here's the vid from the velo article.

Looks interesting. I usually glue, but keep tape for spares. I'm not nearly fast/good/young enough to care about higher rolling resistance in tubulars, or tubulars with tape, but I wonder if the thickness of the this tape raises it much.

Zinn's video makes it look almost easy enough for me to finally give tubulars a try. Next time a sweet tubular wheelset pops up in the classifieds, hmmm.......... and with Caffelatex as sealant, Effeto Mariposa is removing arguments against going tubular.

I'm the reader who sent in the question to Lennard and, as always, I'm super impressed with his helpful response. I'll be trying the tape but won't get a chance until the beginning of July. If anyone here does before, please post about your experience.

Once you use it, will you give us a report? Would love to know if it lives up to claims. Thanks!

Wouldn't use it on a (carbon) wheel with hidden nipples. Cuz not fun to throw away a perfectly good tubie because you had to true a wheel. I haven't used this or any tape but I suspect you could glue the tire with the permanent tape on it..not sure tho.

I bought some of this off of QBP about a month ago to use for a ss road bike that I was impatient to put together. Mavic Reflex rims, Challenge Paris Roubaix tires. It was a really easy experience and so far seems to be holding up as advertised. Of course, it's only been a month and I have too many bikes to ride any one of them all that much. I really like the feel of the tires, but I haven't used the same tires glued normally, so it's difficult to compare to anything.

My buddy and the guy who taught me the dark art of gluing tubulars a few years ago (along with OP technique), started using the Tufo tape this year and he wont go back to glue. He says he can do a tire in minutes and has been riding without issue all summer long. A glue user of 25+ years has been converted.

I picked some up locally recently and plan to use it soon...The shop I got it from uses it pretty much exclusively for road and mtb use in combination with caffe latex sealant and swears by it. The translation of the name, apparently referring to the animal origin of glue in bygone times and meaning "putrifying corpse", is somewhat gross though..
