Anyone who has ever tried to seat tubeless tires at home without the use of a compressor will know what a hassle it can beIt often ends up being a messy job and is sometimes just plain impossible without the use of a workshop-grade air compressor. The all-new Bontrager Flash Can TLR is a portable, multi-use canister that can pressurized to 160 psi with a standard Schrader valve floor pump. Once pressurized the air can be released rapidly to seat tubeless tires.
Bontrager TLR Flash Can
This piece of kit has the potential to make setting up tubeless tires at home and on the road an absolute breeze. The transportable air canister inflates to 160 PSI with a traditional pump, and a quick flip of the lever instantly releases stored air for smooth tubeless tire seating. This should be brilliant for race weekends when you frequently find yourself needing to change tyres depending on the conditions but don’t want to go back to running an innertube. Often, mechanics at a race HQ won’t have access to a compressor either, so this could be a nice solution.
The Flash Can has no pressure gauge but a bleed off valve prevents over inflation. A simple flip of the lever releases the stored air into the tire rapidly, as a compressor would.
