Fix Manufacturing gave us a sneak peek at their new Eflator mini air compressor last month, but now you can actually order one. And you never have to get sweaty again, pumping up your tires just before a ride. Developed to replace your regular floor pump, this small self-contained battery-powered compressor is small enough that it can head to the trailhead with you, yet powerful enough to inflate road or mountain bike tires at home. It even packs enough juice to air up more the eight tires from flat on a single charge.
Fix Mfg Eflator portable battery-powered tire pump
Fix’s rechargeable battery-powered Eflator electric tire pump is small enough to fit in your hand – it’s just 3.5″wide, 1.9″ thick & 5.4″ tall not counting its air hose (9x5x14cm). It’s not meant to replace the mini-pump you carry on a ride, but your much bigger floor pump. The whole idea is to “forever change your ride prep game”.
You just set your ideal pressure on the built-in digital gauge (from 4 inflation preset targets: 9/30/32/36psi), thread it onto your valve, and it inflates your tire to the perfect pressure hands-free. Easy-peasy.
The Eflator is powered by a 2000mAh internal battery, recharged via standard USB-C cable included. Fix Mfg says that’s enough power to inflate 9 typical mountain bike tires from flat up to 30psi, or 8 road tires up to 100psi. They aren’t exactly clear how high tire pressure it can go, but do rate the mini air compressor tire pump up to 100+psi, good enough for any modern road tires in my mind. No word on how much it weighs, but we’d guess it’s more than half a kilo, meaning you likely won’t carry it in your CamelBak.
The pump can be set to display tire pressure in psi, kPa, bar, or kg/cm2 on its large display. It works with Schrader valves, but also includes a thread on Presta adapter and a small carrying bag to keep it all tidy. It even builds-in a small LED flashlight so you can easily inflate tires in the dark.
Fix Mfg Eflator portable compressor – Pricing & availability
The Fix Mfg Eflator digital pump isn’t the first portable battery-powered tire pump / air compressor we’ve seen, but at $90 it is surprisingly affordable. Not cheap, but we see plenty of floor pumps that cost more, and make you work for it.
The Eflator is available for pre-order today direct from Fix Manufacturing with a 1-year warranty, and deliveries are expected to ship by December 1st.
