presta cycle prestaflator mini quick click (4)

When it comes time to air up your tires, an air compressor will go a long way. Now add an inflator head to that airline and the process gets even easier. Prestacycle has gained a lot of fans over the years for their durable Prestaflator which allows you to easily inflate your tires while watching the gauge to get that perfect pressure.

Now the company is introducing the Prestaflator Mini. What it lacks in a gauge, it makes up in usability requiring only one hand…

Technically, once the original Prestaflator is attached to the valve you can get away with one handed use, but the Mini is a true one handed affair to attach it to the valve with the Quick-Click 2 presta valve head and inflate the tire with the control lever. Since the Mini doesn’t offer a gauge, it is recommended that you are either very experienced with tire inflation or know how to properly set your air compressor so you don’t blow the tire off the rim with 300 psi.

That’s where the new Digital gauge comes in. Designed to thread into 1/8″ air compressor regulators or even floor pumps, the digital gauge will allow you to set the pressure to precise increments for perfect inflation every time. Offering 0.5 psi accuracy to 100 psi, and 1 psi accuracy to 300 psi, the gauge also features an auto on/off function.

Prestaflator Minis will sell for $29.95 in presta or schrader versions, and the digital gauge runs another $29.95.

Other inflation adapters include the new Quick-Click 2 Disc Wheel angle head, and the automotive specific Quick-Click 2 shrader head to make filling car tires easier than ever.

The first picture looks more like a “schraderflater mini”.

that digital gauge looks pretty nice and the price is awesome. Will this be distributed in QBP too (like most of their other products)? I just checked and it’s not there right now.

Lets have a discussion about the difference between accuracy and resolution.

Seems like a waste of their design time to me, what if I am filling up the tires on multiple bikes? Lets say a fat bike, a regular MTB and a road bike… do I have to adjust the compressor for each bike? Why not just slap a gauge on the inflater wand itself? Am I missing something?

Hey, a blowgun with a fitting! Revolutionary.

Huh, seems like rebranding of off the shelf inflators with a presta valve. Their prestaflator looks like this http://m.summitracing.com/parts/wmr-m521, but add $45 for a presta valve.

I’ve been looking for a digital pressure gauge for my shock pumps for ages! The only affordable one I could find maxed out at 100PSI, after that they become mega ££. I think the resolution from one is more useful in this context.

In regards to the accuracy/resolution comment, I don’t think accuracy really matters if its the only pump you use, so long as it is Reliable and Repeatable, every time you use it you know the 30.7 PSI you put in is the same as last time. If you’re worried about real accuracy, the only way to guarantee it is to get the gauge calibrated by a UKAS (ANSI in the States) Lab

How low does the gauge go? Will it give an accurate reading on the super low (4-10psi) pressure fat bike wheels?
