Those are just o-rings aren’t they?

$50 for a cartridge inflator?! That sucker must be machined by doctors and those goofy color o rings are worthy of the NASA space mission! Unbelievable!

And very quietly, a whole bunch of guys just went and spent a whole lot of money… (laugh because you know it’s true).

Yes, we all know that the old venerable Italian Silca company is no more, only yo be bought out by an Americano. Yes, this product is Americano.

I decided to give this little gizmo a try. It is AWESOME! Get over the fact that an Italian supermodel didn’t design this. This thing DOES NOT leak air like my expensive overrated Lezyne mini CO2 head. This little gem is fantastic! Much better than the other CO2 heads out there which always lets a little air escape on starting and during inflation. This thing does not leak.

This is, without question, the best Co2 inflator ever made. I’ve used dozens and nothing has ever worked so excellently and effortlessly. Kudos to Josh, he’s a friggin’ genius.

is it thread on? that looks like it would be a game changer in itself

While I think this thing is nice and pretty looking. It’s expensive.

Not sure why others can’t use a Lezyne one. I have more than one of the Lezyne inflators and have no issues with them. In fact pretty happy with all my Lezyne stuff.
