The Airboy is a new series of mini pumps, offering a dual action shaft that utilizes both sides of the pumps body to move air on the Airboy road (standard) and mountain (XL) models. The road model is the smaller one and goes to 120psi and weighs 62g. The XL IS 90g and goes to 73psi.

There’s also a Spaero XL with a CO2 adapter built in that uses a single action shaft. Retail is $29.99 for the regular ones and $39.99 for the CO2 model.

Things blow up bigger below…

The Airboy’s dual plunger design helps push about 18% more air with each stroke, using the motion of each half of the pump to fill your tires.

The Spaero Double Action inflates in both directions and has a number of nifty features to make it user friendly. The handle pops off and slots into the shaft, giving you a better grip. The flexible hose helps save your valve stems from damage. It splits the difference between high pressure and high volume, maxing out at 80psi. Retail is $49.99.

The Airmenius is their new top of the line floor pump that gets a heavy duty body with larger diameter inner shaft for better stability and durability.

An oversized gauge shows pressure in 2psi increments. Fat cork handles are comfy, and big feet give you plenty to step on to keep it stable. Retail is $124.99.

Airbuster is a new CO2 valve head that builds in a safety to hold the cartridge without puncturing it. Hold the button in and screw in the cartridge and it won’t puncture, keeping it all together. Unscrew it slightly and the button pops out, then thread it all the way in and it’ll break the seal. Then, the top knob controls the release speed, letting you fine tune the inflation.

The Xtra Dry XL (top) is for 29+ tires, offering 80mm more coverage than the normal version. The Shockboard XL front fender matches it with 60mm additional coverage. Both use a universal mounting system that straps onto any round seatpost easily for the rear and most forks with a steerer tube that’s open at the bottom.

the xl is pretty cool as it is 179 mm long so can fit in a seat bag unlike 99% of the others, only other one i found that small is the crank brothers at 177

“splits the difference between high pressure and high volume, maxing out at 80psi”
so it’s not useful for any bike? When do you want to inflate a tire to more than 30 but less than 80?

Cyclocross bikes, or fat tired road bikes?

@i — I inflate my 25c Michelin Pro4s on Hed Ardennes rims to about 80 psi. This would work for me.
