It's too pretty to be stranded

The Portland Design Works Shiny Object CO2 Inflator is constructed from the ever-durable aluminum alloy. And considering that it's smaller in stature than a CO2 cartridge, there's no reason to be stranded with a flat -- that is, unless you forgot a tube. Hey, things happen. But the Shiny Object's clever design makes it something that we carry almost solely to show off after situations of duress. The Object threads onto 16g CO2 cartridges, and it features a control knob to regulate CO2 output. The operation is a breeze. Simply, turn the knob clockwise to close the valve, thread on your CO2, and then turn the knob counter-clockwise to inflate your tube. The inflator is compatible with both Presta and Schrader. We know that you'll be glad to have it around.

The Portland Design Works Shiny Object CO2 Inflator is available in one size and one color. It's compatible with 16g threaded CO2 cartridges and both Presta and Schrader valve types.

Shiny, Useful and Neat.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I'm a new convert to the CO2 inflator game and I'm impressed. Keeping this little tool that's smaller than a lot of multi-tools and a couple of cartridges in my kit sure beats a pump.

Plus, using those small handheld pumps puts a good amount of stress on the valve stem if you're not careful. No such issue with the Shiny Object.

Superb Design

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This has been the easiest to use C02 pump I've owned. Cheaper pumps sometimes "misfire" and you're left with a useless cartridge and a couple bucks flushed down the drain. With this pump, it's an easy thread in for the cartridge, with a smooth control release for pumping up your tires. Really an excellent design, well done and very well manufactured.

Well Thought Out

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Would much rather carry one of these instead of a pump. The Open/Close feature is also super easy to use.

You can never have too many inflators

I go through tons of inflators for some reason. They end up in my jersey, shorts, saddle bag, hydro pack, car and tool box. This one is the best one I've owned. It twists on and off so be sure to twist it off before you install the cartridge otherwise you may loose some valuable CO2.

Previously had a Lezyne inflator which I always found tricky to use. The Portland Design Works inflator is super easy to use, and tiny. It's really easy to control pressure with the control knob. Given I wear gloves mountain biking, didn't bother with the version with the C02 canister cover. Good stuff.
