Touratech Air Compressor?

Has anyone used the Touratech mini air compressor Airpower 115 Moto? If so, can you provide some feedback?

How does it compare to the Cyclepump?

85 views. No responses. Must not be a big seller for Touratech.

My friend has the mini compressor from aerostich:

I've seen it in action and works great, I'm picking one up.

Cheers

Cheap Chinese compressor for $6-$10. remove the case and the guts are half the size. Loose it, wear it out, break it. No big loss. The price of the Touratech unit would keep me on vacation another 3-4 days fueled and fed.

Well said that man. That's all that aerostich have done and they're charging you $47

Alright, so I looked up some youtube, but nothing REALLY explaining these mini pumps. How good are these pumps?? Maybe I'm just a hardcore stickler for explanations

Go to target / Walmart.
Get a $15 mini compressor.
Go home and blow up stuff until it quits.
Now you know how long it last.
Get another one and put it on the bike.
You still save 15 bucks.

TT= $$$ It's good stuff, but they are proud of it. I've got the Slime one and can confirm it will seat a bead on a tubeless wheel. Not very fast, but works in a pinch.

I looked around a couple of years ago and came to the conclusion that the Airman Tour was the best quality/$ compressor. Have used it a lot. Still holding up well. The built-in gauge stopped working but it's been around the block a few times and the compressor still works well.
