The Air Check Elite designed by Genuine Innovations is easy to operate, great-looking, light and, compared to the inflators that completely enclose the cartridge, extremely small. Place the cover on the cartridge, firmly screw on the inflator, place the inflator on the valve and press. No switches to operate, no twist-to-inflate. Just press to inflate. Single-handed CO2 bicycle tire inflation has never been this fast, easy, and controllable. Keep it on the valve for 6 seconds to fully empty the cartridge contents. Works with all 12, 16, 25 gram threaded CO2 cartridges that use a 3/8-24 thread.
In warm weather, a 16g cartridge might get a 700x23 tire up to 90psi, depending upon how much tube volume the rim profile permits. In cold weather, perhaps only 75-80psi. Depending upon rider weight that could be sufficient for the front wheel and enough to prevent pinch flats on the rear wheel. In below-freezing weather, it's best to also bring a pump. As a general rule of thumb, use 20g cartridges in the fall and winter, and use 16g cartridges in spring and summer. 16g CO2 cartridge yields approximately one 26 in. tire inflated to 40 psi, and one 700c road tire inflated to 125 psi.
