Geax Pit Stop Magnum

The Geax Pit Stop is a neat idea. You take a canister of CO2 but also fi ll it with latex sealant and stick a multi-fi t (Schraeder and presta) valve attachment on the end. This Magnum version is a bigger volume canister for bigger volume tires.

The Geax Pit Stop is a neat idea. You take a canister of CO2 but also fi ll it with latex sealant and stick a multi-fi t (Schraeder and presta) valve attachment on the end. This Magnum version is a bigger volume canister for bigger volume tires.

If you puncture your tubed (or tubeless) tyre simply attach the Pit Stop to the valve and it infl ates the tyre and seals the puncture (it’s best to give the wheel a spin to help the latex spread out).

I had used one of these sort of things a few years ago and was a little disappointed that it didn’t really work. To be fair, it did seal the tyre but didn’t have enough puff to suffi ciently infl ate a non-’XC race’ tyre. This Magnum one was more than capable – I had to let air out of the tyre after infl ation.

Overall: Sure it’s pricey but if you’re a racer and you want to save weight without compromising inflation performance, strap one of these to your seat post and go.
