If you’re the type to carry CO2 over a pump, at this point you’ve probably figured out just how far that cartridge will get you. But if you’re new to CO2, or just want to look into different size cartridges, MSW has your back. The company now offers a full range of CO2 inflation products from 18, to 25, and even 38g cartridges as well as the Big Air successor the XLA 40g propane canister. Depending on your need, the options may have you carrying more or less CO2 than you will really need.
How should you go about figuring out what amount of CO2 will get you what pressures? You can start by checking out the handy chart from MSW after the jump…
Obviously, the actual PSI number will vary, but this is a useful baseline for the next time you have to crack the seal. You can find MSW CO2 (and propane) cartridges at your favorite bike shop, which will work with the INF-200 inflator from MSW or many other inflators on the market. In case you’re wondering, the biggest difference between the XLA 40 and 38g CO2 cartridge (other than 2g) is that the XLA canister is quite a bit lighter than the CO2 cartridge thanks to its aluminum construction over steel.
