The best big air blasters to help you get your tubeless tyres seated and sealed
The task of converting to tubeless can leave you feeling deflated — these dedicated tubeless inflators promise to make the process totally stress-free.
Topeak JoeBlow Booster
What we really like about the JoeBlow Booster is the massive pressure gauge, which is the easiest to read if you’re just adding 1 or 2psi. It also has a really long hose with an integrated hose dock, which is great if you have the bike in a stand. The handle is more comfortable than the Bontrager and the wide base is very stable.
Bontrager TLR Flash Charger
In terms of inflation performance and ease of operation there’s not much to choose between the Flash Charger and Topeak’s JoeBlow Booster. The Booster has a longer hose, a bigger gauge and is slightly easier to use, but the Flash Charger still gets the job done, and is £10 cheaper.
The big advantage of the Airshot is its low weight and portability, meaning it fits easily in the back of the car, and you can even charge it with a hand pump at a push. It’s also half the price of the JoeBlow Booster, and much less than the Flash Charger, although if you don’t have a track pump you will need to factor that in.
