PRODUCT EVALUATION ATV AIR Full of hot air
q There are many ways to air up a flat tire out on the trail; 12-volt mini air compressors and CO2 cartridges are the most common. These work good if you have the right cargo space available and the proper power supply. We use products from Genuine Innovations and Slime on a regular basis and have had a lot of success with them.
DOES IT WORK?
As simple of an idea as the ATVAIR is, it works great. For testing’s sake, we let the air out of a big 25-inch front tire on a utility ATV. On the tire/wheel side, the ATVAIR’s brass air chuck holds itself in place by clipping to the valve stem. On the other end, you have to hold the small rubber plug to the end cap of the quad’s muffler. Don’t make a complete seal as the engine will choke out and die.
We have used products before to transfer air from an engine combustion chamber (via the spark plug hole), and ATVAIR is way simpler to use. No tools are required. The product takes up very little space and offers an endless supply of air. The only thing that would make this product better is if it was sold as part of a kit with a few tire plugs and an insertion tool. To add the ATVAIR to your onboard tool kit, call ATVAIR at (970) 946 4180, or order it online at www.atvair.com. q
