The Bontrager TLR Flash Charger pump is a cannily designed pump that is designed to work with the tubeless tires that are commonplace in high-end mountain bikes. These tires are popular due to their low weight and rolling resistance, but the problem with them is they require the use of a CO2 cartridge or air compressor. No longer, thanks to the Flash Charger.

The Flash Charger makes it possible to pump 160 psi of air using the regular handle. This enormous output is necessary because a lot of air needs to be pumped very quickly to secure a tubeless tire to the wheel rim.

With the pump head is attached to the valve stem of the rim, the setup allows for compressed air to quickly infiltrate the tire, making it pop into place.

The Flash Charger pump is available for purchase for $120.
