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.

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.

Pricing & Availability

A pair of TyreWiz 2.0 pressure sensors retails at $120 USD (£130 // 145€) and are sold with a 2-year warranty.

I had the originals and they were a random number generator at lower pressures when compared to three digital and two analog pressure gauges. They didn’t even match each other. One was always reading ~1.5 psi different than the other at mountain bike pressure. They were pretty accurate at higher gravel pressures, but that’s not what these are marketed for.

I really like the idea of these but they need to be half this price to get serious adoption

Have them on a few bikes and they are an invaluable. Bought them right when they came out. Very accurate, always on point with what my digital pump display said. But very much welcome the new low profile design.

They’ve always worked great for me. Been riding them for years. Anytime I have had any kind of minor problem a battery swap or a re-pair to my Wahoo took care of it pretty easily.

Is that price for a pair of them or is it for each sensor?

Looks like that’s a mistake. Listed at twice that price for a pair at numerous websites. Do be so hasty to dump on Jeff.

The originals are twice that- the first version released, which is what you are seeing on numerous websites. These, the 2.0s as the article states, are $120.
