In conjunction with the launch of the Zipp 1ZERO HiTOP carbon wheels for XC MTB, a TyreWiz 2.0 is announced. The Presta valve-integrated digital tire pressure sensor gets a new, low profile design.
Lying almost flat against the rim, it is arguably positioned in a less vulnerable spot in respect to any wayward rocks and stones that are picked up by the bike as you ride along. And, it also means the TyreWiz 2.0 has better compatibility with a wider variety of rim depths.
- Accuracy: +/- 2%
- Resolution: 0.1 PSI
- Waterproof and dust proof rating: IPX7
- Power Source: CR1632 Coin Cell Batteries
- Claimed Weight: 10 grams each
- Warranty: 2 Years
- ANT+ and Bluetooth Compatible for Connection to Head Units (Garmin, Hammerhead, etc)
In essence, the TyreWiz 2.0 performs exactly as its predecessor did, measuring tire pressure in real-time. Via the SRAM AXS App, the rider sets their preferred tire pressure; let’s say 22 PSI, for example. When the TyreWiz 2.0 sensor reads the tire pressure at 22 PSI, the LED on the device will blink green. When it falls below 22 PSI, or goes above it, the LED will flash red. A slow flash means the pressure has dropped, and a faster flash means the pressure is too high.
A CR1632 coin cell battery powers the TyreWiz 2.0 for up to 200 hours. The device automatically switches itself off when the bike is not in use. Then, when the built-in accelerometer detects movement again, it switches itself back on, and blinks green or red accordingly. That way, you’ll know if your tire pressures are set correctly just moments after picking the bike up to go ride.
The TyreWiz 2.0 stands to save riders time in that regard, and it can also alert the rider earlier to a slow puncture so they can take action earlier.
The good news that comes with this 2.0 version is the improved compatibility with differing rim depths. With a universal rim adapter and multiple valve lengths (1-80.2mm), there should be a TyreWiz 2.0 for everyone.
