Tubeless, simplified.

We all agree that tubeless has promise, with its pinch flat resistance and lower pressure capacity making for better handling and more time enjoying the ride. However, between wasted CO2 cartridges and time spent hopping from shop to shop in search of a compressor that will seat a finicky tire, setting up a tubeless tire system can be quite the involved process. The Airshot 1.15L Tubeless Inflator lets you save those CO2s and provides compressor-free pressurized air right at home to get your tubeless tires up and running.

The Airshot cylinder is pressurized using an everyday floor pump through a presta valve interface at the top of the nozzle. Once pressurized, a release tap lets you control air flow into the tire for a quick burst that should seat even the most rebellious tires. The cylinder and end cap system combined is about as tall as your average house cat, so it's portable and will store in closets or under beds as easily as a hiding tabby until your next tire changing adventure.

I was skeptical, but works as advertised

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

All my bikes are tubeless setup now. That's road, mountain and tri-bike. Getting tires seated is the biggest hurdle for riding tubeless. Typically a hand or foot pump won't do it. I bought a cheap $45 compressor at Home Depot, which works great BTW, but is also loud as all heck and isn't something you can take to the trail with you. I tried the Bontrager Turbo Boost Pump, but it did not work on the MTN bike tire.

This Airshot works on all tires, and 95% of the time on the first shot. From 23mm road tires to 2.4 inch MTN, all seated easily with this. It's quiet, simple and you take it with you. I was worried about the top stem breaking off until I realized I can remove it when not in use. I put an old (clean) sock over it so that it doesn't clang around too. It's everything it needs to be.

I reluctantly must remove a star for the $99 price though. No reason this should be that much, when I got an actual compressor with tank for literally less than half that.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I was unsure what to expect with the Airshot, and after speaking with some of the guys here, I was convinced I needed to try it.
I have used it a handful of times, and it has yet to disappoint. Every time, it gets the bead instantly seated and up to around 20lbs in a 29x2.4 tire. From there I switch over to a normal pump or compressor and finish topping it off. It definitely makes life easier trail side when a compressor may not be available. I'm very happy to toss this in the gear bag and head to the races, knowing I wouldn't have to lug around a compressor and generator.

Surprisingly good

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I was skeptical about this thing, expecting to have the experience some have mentioned having to pump it up a bunch of times. However, I just used it to set up brand new tires front and back and got both tires seated and inflated to ~25psi in one shot!! With valve core in. So I'm really stoked on it. Even if it takes a few tries though, if you don't need an air compressor for anything else this is a great alternative that's cheaper, quieter, and more portable. The biggest draw to me was the ability to set up tires in the woods in camping trips, without burning through C02s. Given how well it worked though I'll probably use it at home more as well.

Works great!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Between using a compressor, CO2's and the Airshot, this is by far the best no-mess solution to pump up your tubeless tires.

Works, But Is A Hassle

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Being that I live in an apartment, a compressor is noisy & takes up precious storage space, this seemed like a perfect solution. Now having used it a few times, it works, but haven't been thoroughly impressed by it.

Using it, set up for converting tires to tubeless is pretty much no different than a compressor. You'll definitely need to remove the stem core for this to have enough umph behind it.I was excited as many of the other reviews made it seem that seating the beads wouldn't be a hassle, but the multiple attempts for pretty much every tire said otherwise. Again, it always ended up working, but having to repeatedly pump it up to 140psi gets a little old. Not sure if it was the Stan's tubeless stems or what, it also didn't play too nicely with the attachment.

I do like that you could potentially bring it on a trip and still be able to set up your tires tubeless. Its relatively tiny and portable. That is a major plus for it.

All in all, if you don't want to buy a compressor or don't have room, it gets the job done, though may take a few times. That said, as soon as I get the space for a compressor, I'll be getting one.

two thumbs up

    This thing is great and super easy to use. I have a compressor, but hate firing it up in the home garage since I don't use it that often, and there are times when the compressor actually doesn't work that well to seat a tubeless tire. The Airshot works flawlessly every time and is a much better option than the compressor, or trying to pump like a madman with your floor pump. It usually helps to remove the presta valve core since the Airshot adapter will screw right into the valve stem. Another bonus is that this travels well and you can use it on the road or camping if you need to. Definitely would recommend!

    Road tubeless made easy.

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Mounting road tubeless tire is no easy feat. Sure you can find all kinds of YouTube videos of guys mounting road tubeless tires using a floor pump. I have never been able to seat the bead with a floor pump. I've even had problems re-mounting tired after removing the tire to repair a puncture. In fact some tires are hard to mount even when you have a compressor.

    I decided to try the Airshot because I want to ride road tubeless and I don't want to go to the bike shop every time I need to mount a tire.

    The Airshot worked perfectly, I mounted a new tire by removing the valve stem and using the adapter provided. I filled the Airshot to about 130psi and that seated about 95% of the bead. I then added sealing fluid, replaced the valve stem, and pumped the tire up to pressure.

    Road tubeless made easy.

    Eliminate tubeless setup hassle!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Are you turning into a gravel cyclist? Do wider tires get you off? Are you ditching the inner-tube shackles that oppress the spares bag under the bike seat? If you are converting to tubeless & this craze is new to you (it is for me), the Airshot has taken a lot of the frustrations out of setting tubeless tires up.
    Everything you need is included for a quick burst of air (1.15L @ 160 Max PSI) to set just about any tubeless tire width. I just broke my tubeless cherry setting up 700c x 40mm Clements (yes , I was a 40yr virgin), it happened so fast when I used Airshot , just connected using the supplied adapter , opened the valve and POP. Done. Beads seated on the rim. No hassle.

    The Airshot is sexy, it’s well-constructed and the blue speaks to me. After it performed so well on my tires, I brought it into the bedroom and it sleeps next to me and my wife. Yes you can buy a compressor, but why not just buy an electric bike? Airshot does not need to be plugged in, can work in any environment and all you need is standard bike pump to set it up. Its slick.

    Finally, a solution!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have been struggling for years trying different pumps and gadgets to make mounting tubeless tires easy. With the newer beadless rims and large volume tires, this has gotten more difficult. The Airshot worked perfectly. Have been seating tires for a few months no with no worries. Getting used to the adapters took a little figuring out but a little getting used to it was all it took. Great device! Wish Backcountry also sold the neoprene sleeve.

    Works pretty well

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    After using the Airshot to set up a few tubeless tires I can attest to it's ability to inflate the tire and set the bead. It will make short work of most tubeless tires and makes setting the bead simply. I did find that the shot of air is initially strong, but starts to slow after the initial burst. This means stubborn tires are still hard to seat.

    For the money this is the best option for setting the bead on your tires. It still doesn't work as well as a compressor, or the few pumps on the market that have pressure chambers that do the same thing.

    It works

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I can't stand setting up tubeless tires and this little widget actually works. I keep it in my tool box and take it wherever I go. With a small travel pump I'm able to get it fully charged quickly. It hasn't failed to seat a stubborn tire yet, even a big 120tpi fatbike tire.

    it would be nice to take on the trail!?
