  • extremely easy to use compared to mastic
  • very reliable adhesion, in any condition
  • once removed, Carogna leaves the rim ready for the next gluing, without additional cleaning
  • works for road and cyclocross
  • also available in very convenient Shop rolls

Carogna has been tested and is designed to perform flawlessly on any rim material (aluminum, carbon), with any tubular (seamless, handmade, vulcanized sew-ups…), on and off-road.

Semi-structural and removable on the rim-side: adhesion is guaranteed by industrial-grade acrylic glue, native to the base tape; this means that when removing the tubular (breaking its bond with the rim), the acrylic glue will stay on the tape, not on the rim. Acrylic has a good adhesion on both aluminum and carbon without any specific surface preparation.

Permanent on the tubular side: there’s a 1 mm-thick layer of a recently-developed permanent glue for underwater applications. This thick glue film will move and spread when the tubular is first inflated, ensuring optimized contact with any tubular base tape geometry. Humidity is obviously not an issue, and this glue adheres well to any kind of base tape material (nylon, cotton, poly-cotton) or external finishing (raw, brushed, or coated by neoprene).

Once adhesion is set, the use at low temperatures (down to -40°C) is not a problem. Thermal resistance of all materials used in the manufacture of Carogna was a high priority: Carogna will provide a perfect bonding at 150°C for extended periods (hours), exceeding the heat-resistance of even the best mastics and widely exceeding the heat-resistance of any other tubular tape.

Adhesion is very strong and uniform across the whole circumference of the rim for all tubulars and it is also uniform across the tubular base tape. One short-coming of tubular tape to-date has been limited adhesion at the edges of the base tape or in the center of tubulars with a raised center seam. Carogna solves these problems.

The ideal thermal range for application of Carogna is between 21°C and 38°C (70 to 100°F), allowing 8 hours to reach 80% of the adhesive strength . Applying the tape below 10°C is not recommended. We recommend cleaning surfaces (rim and tubular base tape) using iso-propylic alcool or mineral spirits.

Available sizes and outer rim-width:

  • S - 16,5mm wide (Rim width: 17-20mm)
  • SM - 20mm wide (Rim width: 21-24mm)
  • M - 25mm wide (Rim width: 25-38mm)

S, SM, M are for ONE wheel (2m long)

Shop combination is for 8 wheels (16m long)

Carogna tape works for cyclocross, we’ve had in general very positive feed-back. Journalists and early adopters like Lennard Zinn of Velonews and Mike Yozell of Bicycling confirm Carogna indeed works for cx. However, not surprisingly, it turns out that knowing the correct gluing procedure is much more important for cx than for normal road use: similarly to mastic, an average gluing job won’t survive cyclocross applications. Carogna glue is ‘pressure-activated’, so it bonds very strongly when it’s pushed down against the rim by the tubular pressure (for this reason, for road tubulars, we recommend inflating tubulars to their max pressure and allowing some time before riding: adhesion reaches 80% of its maximum strength after 8 hours, the optimal value of 99% after 24 hours).

It is recommended to infale tyre to full pressure and let it be for 8 hours minimum.

  • AVOID SANDPAPER ON THE RIM
  • CAROGNA WIDTH MUST BE THE CORRECT ONE FOR YOUR RIM
  • DON’T LET YOUR TUBULARS OUT TO FREEZE BEFORE THEY ‘STICK’
  • LOWER INFLATING PRESSURE MIGHT REQUIRE LONGER GLUING TIME

The quality of the adhesion should be checked by completely deflating the tubular and gently pushing it on the side. If the tubular is still not holding, waiting longer will normally address the issue.
