It's too pretty to be stranded

The Portland Design Works Shiny Object CO2 Inflator is constructed from the ever-durable aluminum alloy. And considering that it's smaller in stature than a CO2 cartridge, there's no reason to be stranded with a flat -- that is, unless you forgot a tube. Hey, things happen. But the Shiny Object's clever design makes it something that we carry almost solely to show off after situations of duress. The Object threads onto 16g CO2 cartridges, and it features a control knob to regulate CO2 output. The operation is a breeze. Simply, turn the knob clockwise to close the valve, thread on your CO2, and then turn the knob counter-clockwise to inflate your tube. The inflator is compatible with both Presta and Schrader. We know that you'll be glad to have it around.

The Portland Design Works Shiny Object CO2 Inflator is available in one size and one color. It's compatible with 16g threaded CO2 cartridges and both Presta and Schrader valve types.

  • Airflow regulation knob
  • Threads to 16g CO2 cartridges

PERFECT Co2 inflator

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I rarely give things 5 stars, but this thing deserves it. Very small, lightweight, and does EXACTLY what it needs to do and nothing more. Has a dial to control the flow of Co2 so if you muck up pressing the inflator on the valve you can just reset and try again. Super durable, I've had the same one for 3 years and it still works perfectly.

Rolls Royce of CO2 inflators

    No freezing hands. Dialed in flow knob. It does what they should all do.
    The Synchros levers are cool too.

    why would you buy anything else?

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This product is perfection! It is light, small, easily fits in your underseat bag and works perfectly delivering the right amount of air needed. Not too much , not too little and not so fast and out of control that everything freezes. . I have owned many styles of these and there is no need to look further.

    compact and easy

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I generally like pumps but this co2 is durable and easy to control and packable.

    Compact and easy to control

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    In addition to being very small / compact, I really love that you can control the flow of CO2 coming out of the Portland Designs Shiny Object inflater. And if you haven't used *all* of the CO2 in a cartridge, you can still stash it in your pocket while still attached to the cartridge in case you need to top off a slow leak later down the road.

    Easy to Use

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Helpful to have some pressure control when trying to get back on the road or trail. Simple to use and no complains so far.

    Shiny, Useful and Neat.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I'm a new convert to the CO2 inflator game and I'm impressed. Keeping this little tool that's smaller than a lot of multi-tools and a couple of cartridges in my kit sure beats a pump.

    Plus, using those small handheld pumps puts a good amount of stress on the valve stem if you're not careful. No such issue with the Shiny Object.

    Superb Design

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This has been the easiest to use C02 pump I've owned. Cheaper pumps sometimes "misfire" and you're left with a useless cartridge and a couple bucks flushed down the drain. With this pump, it's an easy thread in for the cartridge, with a smooth control release for pumping up your tires. Really an excellent design, well done and very well manufactured.

    You can never have too many inflators

      I go through tons of inflators for some reason. They end up in my jersey, shorts, saddle bag, hydro pack, car and tool box. This one is the best one I've owned. It twists on and off so be sure to twist it off before you install the cartridge otherwise you may loose some valuable CO2.

      Awesome

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Previously had a Lezyne inflator which I always found tricky to use. The Portland Design Works inflator is super easy to use, and tiny. It's really easy to control pressure with the control knob. Given I wear gloves mountain biking, didn't bother with the version with the C02 canister cover. Good stuff.
