Genuine Innovations Race Day Road Kit CO2 Tire Inflator

15 Aug

If your bicycle has a carrier on the handlebars that looks like a picnic basket, this product is not for you. However, if you race or simply like to keep your bike as lightweight as possible, then I’ve got some great news for you! The Genuine Innovations Race Day Road Kit is not only the easiest way to attach a CO2 cartridge to your bike, but it is also provides the fastest way to remove the cartridge from your frame as well.

Genuine Innovations Race Day Road Kit

The Race Day Road Kit includes an all metal alloy Air Chuck Elite, a high-quality air chuck that connects a CO2 cartridge to the valve on your bicycle tire, and it works with both Presta and Schrader valves. This air chuck works with all Genuine Innovations 12, 16, or 25 gram threaded CO2 cartridges. The kit also includes a flexible mounting bracket that attaches to your bike with a Velcro strap. The mounting bracket can go just about anywhere on your bike frame, like but I think the seat post or top tube would be the most logical locations. The kit comes with two 16 gram CO2 cartridges, and a plastic cover for the cartridges (it keeps your hands from freezing when you use a cartridge).

The Race Day Road Kit was obviously designed with tri-athletes in mind. Removing a CO2 cartridge from the mounting bracket is as simple as pulling a short Velcro strap. The “push-to-inflate technology” on the air chuck means you can add air to your tire and get back on the road in a matter of seconds. When the race is over you can remove the mounting bracket in about two seconds.

There is also another great use for this product. I ride all-year long and in all weather conditions. If you ride in the rain you really ought to get the Race Day Road Kit. Rain has a tendency to bring all sorts of road debris to the surface and this leads to a lot of tire punctures. If it is a bad puncture you are going to have to patch the tire, but if it is just a slow leak you can quickly hop off the bike, inflate your tire, then get back on the road. If you only ride in fair weather this might not sound like a big deal, but if you have ever tried to use a hand pump to inflate a tire during a storm you will appreciate anything that can keep you from standing in the mud on the side of the road any longer than necessary!

The Race Day Road Kit retails for $25. If your local bike shop does not carry it you can order one from the Genuine Innovations Website. This review was based upon a product that was sent to me for review by Genuine Innovations.
