A team of engineers based in Zurich Switzerland have designed a new tubeless bicycle pump system created pecifically for tubeless tyres, building on a valve system created two years ago by the team.
Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the milKit tubeless booster bicycle pump which launched on Kickstarter this week to raise the funds required to make the jump into production. If the milKit Kickstarter campaign is successful delivery is expected to take place during February 2018.
Sport Components Ltd the developers of the portable gas bicycle pump system explain more about its development and inspiration
Two years ago, with the milKit valve system, we started our mission to make tubeless easy, and our mission has not changed. The successful launch of the milKit valve system (see campaign) and the many motivating compliments we received for our first product and its design encouraged us to keep developing the products that improve and simplify the tubeless experience for cyclists.
Talking to mechanics and tubeless riders we often heard: “This milKit system is awesome but can’t you also find an easy solution to the one problem remaining with tubeless tires: inflating them without having to use a compressor?” Inflating tubeless tires can be difficult to impossible without having a compressor at home. With milKit booster we want to bring you a simple, effective and inexpensive solution to get tubeless tires inflated. Let’s make tubeless easy!
