Redesigned to be more durable and easy to use, the Park Tool INF-2 Shop Inflator provides high-pressure inflation for day-in, day-out use in the bike shop or garage. Its 360-degree rotatable head accommodates both Presta and Schrader valves for painless inflation at any angle. The dual-sided head is set to blow compressed air from its Presta side by default, easily clearing dust and debris from your workbench and repair areas. It features a large pressure gauge that reads up to 160 PSI for precise inflation of tires and tubes, with a protective gauge boot and integrated bleed button. The inflator's body accepts any 3/8-inch NPT male threaded fitting, and it's rebuildable for years of reliable use.
- Q & A
spendy but useful
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I've built a pretty good collection of bike maintenance tools for my home shop. I even have a quality automotive inflator with pressure gauge that serves tubeless tire setup and general inflation duties pretty well. However, as my families fleet of bikes all use presta valves, I'm always needing to use the shrader/presta adapter and the nozzle on my automotive inflator is set up for working on car/truck rims. Getting a good attachment on certain bike rims can sometimes take some real effort (ie both hands dedicated to getting air into the tire)--especially when trying to get a stubborn tire to 'catch air' for its initial tubeless setup. As you would expect, this park tool inflator is dedicated to bike tire use and solves all the problems plaguing other inflators. If you're building you home mechanic tool collection, get this on your wish list. Its not a must have, but given the amount of time we seem to mess with tires, it will quickly be appreciated.
