Remember our instructive guide on the 13 Must-Have Things for a Longer Bike Trip? Good, because we’re adding to it soon and the MotoPumps Mini Pro Inflator is definitely on the list. Regardless of whether you’re riding a sport bike with tubeless tires or a full-fledged adventure bike with extra-thick tubes, you will eventual have to deal with a flat tire.

It’s not the time or place to discuss the tubeless vs tube type wheels and how many times more time-consuming repairing or changing a tube is than plugging a hole in a tubeless tire. What matters is how well inflated can you run the tire with what you’ve got on the bike. CO2 cartridges are easy to use, but they might not get the job done when used on a large tire. Of course, you can use more… if you have them.Sense and simplicity
Still, the easiest way to make sure everything is safe and sound is using a compressor. This solution is also the best one when the tire/tube repair job is not perfect and air is still leaking from them. The MotoPumps Mini Pro Inflator’s name says pretty much all there is to this small, convenient gadget.

The gadget is powered by the bike’s 12v system as uses a cig plug, SAE plug, battery clips or battery terminal rings. It has a backlit pressure gauge which is easily-readable at night and even a LED light which makes working in dim light conditions much easier, too.

A standard tire can be inflated to 36 psi (2.5 bar) in about three and a half minutes, and according to the manufacturer it can also reach 50 psi (3.45 bar). A special on-board compartment houses three “sports” fittings which will allow you to use the Mini Pro Inflator with sleeping pads, rafts, balls and many other items.

The MotoPumps Mini Pro Inflator is also CAN BUS compatible and can be ordered in a deluxe trim, including a neoprene case, battery clips and battery terminal rings.Specifications
