Topeak has plenty of ingenious bicycle products and the company’s latest is perhaps the best solution yet. The Airbooster Race Pod makes one of the most annoying chores of bicycle riding easy; we are of course talking about inflating a tire.
The Airbooster Race Pod ($32) comes as a kit that attaches easily to the seat post and supplies two CO2 cartridges that inflate a tire in seconds. The kit also comes with a neoprene bag to keep the canisters from the climate. The Airbooster Race Pod is ideal for races or endurance rides, or even just for someone who can’t be bothered to pump away at a tire, and the great thing is that it costs about the same as a high end pump.
