Effetto Mariposa Tyreinvader Puncture Protection
The Tyreinvader from Effetto Mariposa is an anti-pinch-flat insert for tubeless tyres. Very simple to use and light, it saves your tyres and rims from hard impacts without interfering with the way your wheels behave.
Puncture protection Made in Italy: the Tyreinvader from Effetto Mariposa
Tyreinvader is made of high density EVA (ethylene-vinyl acetate), a closed cell polymer commonly employed by the sport shoe industry: this material can resist heavy impacts with very little damage and is very durable. Effetto Mariposa recommend to check Tyreinvader once a year or after hard riding sessions, and to replace it if needed.
EVA has a closed cell structure that cannot absorb any sealant, letting it free inside the tyre cavity. Besides, the cut-outs of Tyreinvader allow the sealant to easily move around, to make sure punctures can be quickly fixed. As inserts have surfaces that are wetted by the sealant, a fraction of it won’t be available to repair punctures. For this reason – also with Tyreinvader – it is recommend to slightly increase the quantity of sealant normally employed, by 30 ml.
