Ride Air has announced that distributor Cooke Components will now offer the tyre inflation brand to the trade.
Products will be available to purchase from Cooke Components from mid-February; pre-orders are being taken now.
The brand’s portable, refillable and multi-use capsules fit neatly into a standard bottle cage and can inflate a tyre at the push of a button.
The Ride Air capsules are manufactured from aluminium and come in a range of colours. A 500g unit will inflate up to 230psi and comes equipped with its own pressure gauge and Presta/Schrader adaptor.
The standard Ride Air is priced at £59.99 RRP, however another version is available with a one-metre cable preinstalled; this model retails at £69.99 RRP.
Cooke Components’ Matt Cooke explains: “Commuters who want a quick repair on the way to work, mountain bikers who want a top up of air or road cyclists and sportive riders who want to minimise the time spent stood on the side of the road fixing a puncture, Ride Air appeals to them all”
“One of the many advantages to the use of a Ride Air unit is that it also helps make tubeless tyre seating much easier for those without a compressor or for tubeless top ups and repairs on the go. One press of a button delivers a concentrated burst of air”
Retailers will be able to view Ride Air products at the upcoming Bike Place Show, which takes place at the Silverstone Circuit from January 29th – 31st.
