Every once in a while we come across a product so simple and brilliant that it that makes us scratch our heads and say, ‘Why didn’t we come up with this idea first?’. The product that most recently had us doing just that is the Air Lever by California based brand Barfly.
This thing combines two of the most important tools in any cyclists kit – a tire lever and a C02 inflater. Now, before you head off on a long Sunday ride, you can just slide two of these 40 gram tools into your saddle bag or jersey and you’ll be prepared for even the gnarliest flats. Once you replace or repair your tube, just pop the Air Lever on the valve, twist in a canister, and you’re good to go. Don’t ride road bikes? No worries. This lever fits both Presta and Schrader valves. When these hit retail early this year they’re expected to go for $30. [Purchase]
