Prestacycle Prestaflator Compressor Head

Prestacycle Prestaflator Compressor Head

Who says air compressors are for automotive use only? With the Prestacycle Prestaflator, air compressors become another weapon in your bicycle tool arsenal! The Prestaflator uses a unique variable-rate trigger action inflator valve to permit “small shots” of air in order to precisely reach the desired air pressure without the risk of over-inflation, while a full squeeze on the trigger provides maximum pressure for seating tubeless tires. The air pressure holds the tool in place so that the dial pressure gauge lets you follow your progress visually and obtain accurate readings. The exclusive Spin-on head provides an air-tight seal, zero pressure loss during disconnection, and is able to take tire pressure readings without being connected to an Air Compressor. Constructed of high-quality materials such as cast aluminum, 6061-T6 Alloy, chrome, stainless steel and reinforced polyurethane, the Prestaflator is both dexterous and resilient, certain to give you years and years of reliable, bike-pump-free service.

Functional, yet poor quality tool
Jenson got this to me nicely packaged and quickly. Jenson gets a 5 rating.

The tool functions perfectly, with a push-on Presta valve connector, and a screw on Schrader valve connector. The pressure gauge reads accurately, although the increments and range are too great to allow accurate tire pressure readings. Increments are 2psi, range is 5psi to 175psi. Hard to nail the pressure on a 27psi mountain bike tire.

The trigger valve is sensitive enough to add very small increments of air to slowly bump up the pressure.

However, the tool itself is poor quality; like buying a $1 pair of pliers out of the bargain bin at the local dollar store. Cheap zinc casting with a shiny chrome plate. Both the trigger valve and bleed valve are of "light" (cheap) construction. If this purchase is for home use, it will be fine (if overpriced). If you want a tool for a serious shop, buy something else.
Lightweight valve construction.
Thin walled zinc casting.  Flaws in casting.
2psi increments on dial.  Fat needle, fat marks,  not precise.

Simple, Works amazing
This inflator is simple, great, and works. Doesn't leak. Not sure exactly how accurate the gauge is, whatever. We use it here at the shop for quick inflation and setting up tubeless tires. Paired with a good compressor it delivers a lot of air really fast, which seals tubeless tires immediately. Can't vouch for other inflators that might be prettier... the hose is not so great if you're holding the inflator in one hand and the wheel in another, meaning you'll have to put the tire between your knees and hold the head on the valve while you inflate. Not really a big deal though. Get this!

Far from perfect
Mine was missing the tire lever, and the Schrader adapter didn't match the picture/description. I think this is the first time Jenson has ever let me down in the customer service department. When I called about the fact that what I received didn't match the item description, they offered to ship me a tire lever for free, but not the one that should have been included. That or I could return the product. OK. I said fine ship me a tire lever. It has been 3-4 weeks and I have not received it. I have a feeling they didn't bother to send it. Fine. I will still order from Jenson, but my opinion of them has been lowered a notch.
