Tubeless booster and drinking bottle in one - the milKit booster replaces a conventional compressor, is inexpensive, lightweight and very easy to handle. For increased safety and durability, the revised second version of the booster head uses a stronger material and features structural reinforcements that include an additional steel reinforcement ring.
To mount a tubeless tire, it takes a massive blast of air to quickly push the tire bead into the rim flange and seal the tire. With a conventional air pump this rarely works, depending on the tire and rim combination. Compressors are often used for this purpose, which can be found at petrol stations or in garages. To make this possible on the road and without a compressor, there is now the Tubeless Booster from milKit. A special advantage: the bottle can also be used as a drinking bottle as a nice side effect.
Note: The video shows the original, first version of the Booster. The scope of delivery of the second version includes water bottle and cap as well as the booster head.
The core technology of the milKit Tubeless Booster is the valve-actuated slider that releases air directly into the valve stem. No tube. No additional valve.
Although the Booster is compatible with any tubeless tire valve, it nonetheless works best with milKit tubeless valves. Because milKit valves remove the valve core before inflating tubeless tires (to achieve the highest possible air flow), a traditional tubeless valve will no longer function as a one-way valve. The patented milKit valves have an additional rubber flap in the lower section that acts as an additional one-way valve. Inflate the booster, press on the valve, remove it and the tires are mounted. Without any hassle and stress.
The bottle itself is compatible with conventional bottle cages (∅ 74 mm) and can be pumped with a maximum air pressure of 11 bar (160 psi). For use as a drinking bottle, a bottle cap is included with the booster next to the head. The aluminum bottle has the same thread as the bottles from SIGG, Laken and many others.
