The new seasonal concoction.
Caffelatex Tire Sealant is different than other liquid latex sealants on the market -- it has a foaming agent that effectively creates a tire filling foam as your tire rolls down the road or trail. The advantage is that the Caffelatex foaming sealant can seal the rim/tire junction and sidewall punctures as you ride. For a sidewall puncture, other riders will have to stop and jiggle their tires to allow sealant to flow towards the damaged portion of the tire. But you'll ride right on by as Caffelatex does the job for you.
Caffelatex is a liquid, latex based tire sealant. It's ammonia-free, so it won't harm your tires and rims. It's available in a 1000ml bottle that, depending on your tire size and type, will allow you to install and seal at least ten tires. Caffelatex will seal punctures as big as 6mm in mountain and 3mm in road tires with high pressures.

Do not buy!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Purchased from my local bike shop, within 3 weeks sealant hardened, sealing my Schwalbe pro ones to my HED Ardenne wheelset. CANNOT GET TIRE OFF. I have used hot soapy water outside and inside my tire, heat, pliers, a vice, paint thinner, tried to cut my tire off... you name it... ruined my wheelset and tires. Overall around a $1200 mistake. Never ever use
Healthy alternative for tires/rims.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I have been using EM sealant since I started using tubeless more than 5 years ago. Tubeless are my all around training and racing tire. Actually last week I was ready to get to the line for a criteria and heard a noise coming from the tire rotation. Look down and there it is a paper clip medium size going thru my front tire (Schwalbe Ones) with less than 2 months of use... everybody around me panicked when they realized my scenario. they were even more amazed when I took out the clip and it sealed within 2 secs. This sealant works better when rolling than stationary and is safe for tires and rims. I used stand on some rims and they tend to provoque corrosion if you leave it there for prolonged periods of time. With this sealant I only have to worry on when the tire is ready for a replacement which in my case its usually every 6 months. There is no sealant that can prevent the catastrophic full size screw or tire side wall slash. For those cases always carry a rubber repair kit and apply the rubber patch inside the tire put sealant and you can safely ride home, the sealant will take care of create a good seal around the cut.
