Topeak Air Booster CO2 Inflator Head Topeak Air Booster CO2 Inflator Head
The evolution of CO2 inflators is one colored with frustration from brittle composites and premature releases. We've come a long way from CO2 inflators of the '90s, and Topeak's Air Booster embodies the highest level of development. Incredibly small, the Air Booster is about 1. 5in long and high, and just over a half-inch wide. This means, given its CNC'd aluminum construction, Topeak's Air Booster weighs seven grams more than the included 16g cartridge. While a compact, 22. 5g CO2 head defines modern inflators, Topeak's easy-to-use, push-to-inflate design is bolstered by a flow adjuster. This allows you to control the CO2 surge, rather than lose it all in a disappointing moment encompassed by cold metal, hissing, and lost carbon dioxide. The Air Booster also features an angled head for ergonomics, and it fits both Schrader and Presta valves. Topeak's Air Booster is a double-ended design, which allows you to store the cartridge, and it has an integrated dust cap to keep things working smoothly.

Topeak Road MasterBlaster Topeak Road MasterBlaster
Epic rides are just that -- epic. If you scrounge through our "What's New" section you can read about the trip we took to the Alps to watch le Tour in 2003. It was epic indeed. Day 1 was something like 110 miles with 4 Alpine passes and near-certainty by the end of the day that we'd be stuck sleeping on the side of the road thanks to our over-ambitious itinerary and sheer ignorance about the fact that real cols can take upwards of 2 hours to climb. And our second day nearly stopped before it started. We were slated to ride from Grenoble to the top of Alpe d'Huez to watch the mountaintop finish there, but 15 miles into the ride -- alongside the longest traffic jam we'd ever seen -- we got a gunshot-loud rear puncture on the interminable false flat that leads from the remnants of civilization into the harshest riding terrain on earth. We had only one spare tube, but worse was the fact that we'd repaired every roadside puncture in the last decade with handy, dandy CO2 cartridges. Since we flew to France we couldn't bring along CO2. Instead we carried one of these -- a Topeak Master Blaster frame pump. It was sheer terror for us: Would we rip the valve off our only spare thanks to all the leverage we'd be putting on the valve' Would we nuke a rotator cuff given the reputedly small stroke volume of a frame pump'No. And no. Rather, it took us only about an extra 30 seconds to air our spare rock hard in comparison to what it would've taken with a CO2. The valve' It was fine. Our shoulder prognosis' No problem, not at all. Given the length of the Masterblaster's barrel, it brought our tire up to good pressure with surprisingly few strokes -- a beauty of the fact that this is a real frame pump, not one of those mountain biking mini-pump jobbies. Long barrel = generous stroke volume. In short, the Master Blaster is the bomb. We got to the top of l'Alpe with abundant time for a 4 course lunch and a 20 Euro bottle of Evian before Iban Mayo passed us by resplendent in his or...
