Effetto Mariposa Carbo Move is an effective penetrating lube designed to be kind to carbon fiber components: think of it as Plus Gas for the composite age. It's sensitive enough to shift stuck-fast carbon goodies without damaging the resins that hold them together, but still has enough penetrating power to free up fasteners you overlooked last winter. It'll even tackle one of those notoriously quick-seize fluted posts beloved of retro road bikes.
Effetto Mariposa Caffe’ latex tubeless conversion kit is in effect two products in one- a clever concept converting standard wire-on rims to the latest generation of tubeless tyres while the sealant can also be employed to combat punctures in traditional tubs and standard tubes with removable valve cores. We tried it in the latter to good effect but careful, methodical installation is a must.
With the prevalence of carbon fibre and similarly lightweight components, Effetto Mariposa’s Giustaforza torque wrench is the answer to the home mechanic’s prayer-it’s compact, easy to use, affordable (at least when you consider the implications of component failure) and moreover, accurate. Sure it might seem overkill for one entry-level bike with a carbon composite post but like a decent pump or similarly good tool, it left me wondering how I fettled the fleet before I had it.
