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.

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!

I was really excited about this, but wasn't as good as I had hoped. It works just fine on my mountain bike. In fact it works far better than the cheap brass adaptors I was using. The handle and gauge seem of decent quality. The part that seems cheap is the schrader adapter. The one that shipped was a different design that what is shown in the pictures. It will not securely clip onto any Schrader valves I have. Not car tires, not my wife's cruiser, nothing. I can't even get it onto my kids bikes due to the design (not that you should use an air compressor to inflate a 16" tire). It either leaks, or falls off. It's probably going to end up in the trash.

Bottom line, I actually like the prestaflator, but the accessories are worthless. I had a coupon so it was cheaper to get it here then direct from prestacycle. Save yourself some money and just buy it without the accessories, or build one yourself.

Poor Quality Control on Prestacycle Mini Compressor Head

    Comments about Prestacycle Prestaflator Compressor Head:

    I got this Presta Mini Inflator so I could air up my Presta Valve bicycles tires with my compressor without having to screw on a Presta to Schrader valve adapter each time. When I received it, it was leaking in two places due to the fittings not having been tightened properly. It also started leaking at the lever valve plunger after a couple uses due to either not enough crush on one of the o-rings or possibly just being assembled with no lube on the sealing o-rings. The repair was a pain because the lever is riveted but it now works better with a new o-ring and lube. Also, the sealing around the presta valve could be better; it always leaks there when you are inflating so its hard to judge how much air is actually going into the tire.

            I paid for one that comes with the gauge and was mailed the Mini Inflation Tool, which doesn't have the gauge. It works well, but I have to check the compressor for PSI. It appears Jenson USA has fixed the "choose option" section so this won't happen to another customer

                With having two trikes with presto values it makes setting excate air pressure easy.

                        Difficult to use. Presta head does not stay on the valve unless you hold it in place. Requires 3 hands to use properly. Not precise and broke after 5 uses.

                          While I read a lot of good reviews on this product and the price point was good, the product is far behind the park tool shop inflator. The screw on presta tip leaked when unscrewing it,consistently causing a drop of 5-8 psi. At the end of the day it was easier to use my normal pump. I ended up purchasing the park tool inflator and love it.
