Tire Deflator Comparison

Post  angri on 6/3/2012, 9:30 am

I've been looking into getting tire deflators. I ran across a comparison test. It answered many of my questions and figured I should share it.

I have the Oasis Trailhead deflators, just haven't used them yet... Need to get them setup, I've just been lazy and keep forgetting.

Those are the exact ones I'm planning to buy. The comparison confirmed my thought that those are the better option.

Just set my Trailhead deflators up today, using a wheel borrow tire. It went very quickly, prob took me like 30 minutes, since the small tire aired up/down fast. This was actually suggested on the setup card they came with, as it would take forever using a ful size tire...

I'll be using them tomorrow before the trail ride I go on, so I'll post up how they work, now that they should be all set up.

The tire deflators worked awesome. Took a minute or so to air down all four tires from 28psi to 14psi. All came out to the same psi I had set them up for (14) so I was very impressed with them. Makes airing down so much easier!

Great link, thanks! I've been debating picking up a set.

Still....$80 for for a deflator seems like a lot compared to a screwdriver and a pressure gauge.

The Trailhead deflators I picked up from Domenics in NH, while I was there picking up my lift that I had BDS send to him. He only charged me like $45.

A lot of the stuff there he has had sitting around for a while and he's sells it for what he bought it for a while back, just trying to unload what he has it seems..

And while I agree it is a bit of $$ just to air down, but its so nice to just screw these on and then a minute later all four are at the smae pressure with no hassle at all!
