DATELINE: NORTH ATTLEBORO, MASS…
Besides a flat, nothing puts a damper on a brisk afternoon of cycling than having to stop and put air in your tires. What makes the task even more burdensome is finding a place for your pump and other tools that: (a.) don’t get in the way and (b) sufficiently fill your tires. Topeak’s CO2 Bra Race Pod fills the bill on both counts.
Equipped with Velcro straps, the Race Pod’s compact body (5.5” x 2.5” x 2.2”; .59 lb.) adheres neatly and securely to your bike seat post. The Pod also comes equipped with an efficient air supply and inflation system in the form of Topeak’s reddot design award-winning CO2 Bra CO2 inflator, complete with two threaded CO2 cartridges.
“The beauty of the Race Pod is that it is so compact, you can strap it on to your bike seat post and you really don’t know it’s there until you actually need it,” said Neal Todrys, president of Todson Inc, Topeak’s U.S. distributor. “Because it comes with two CO2 cartridges, you always have more than adequate air supply.”
The CO2 Bra CO2 Inflator features:
- Ergonomic handle that fits comfortably in hand for a better grip while inflating.
- Flip-up thumb lever to allow precise flow control
- Visual pressure indicator to tell you when cartridge is ready to inflate
- Safety ring to prevent accidental puncture during transport
- CO2 cartridge head works with both Presta and Schrader vales and features integrated dust cap
In addition to the inflator and cartridges, the Race Pod includes two tire levers made from engineering grade plastic. Ergonomically shaped to fit comfortably in your hand, the two levers snap together for easy storage in the Race Pod.
“With the Race Pod, you can inflate your times much like you would at a service station—without pumping—and without the inconvenience of having to carry a tool kit or pump in your backpack or other storage area,” said Todrys.
