Schrader is the inventor of the bicycle valve and the leading global manufacturer of tyre pressure monitoring systems for automobiles, heavy vehicles and motorcycles. Schrader is a pioneer in TPMS, a vehicle safety feature that is now standard on all passenger cars and light trucks sold in the USA, EU and China.
Schrader is launching its first bike and e-bike TPMS brand AIRsistant at Eurobike 2022 in July. The innovative Bluetooth Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) AIRSistant for bikes and e-bikes monitors the pressure and temperature of the bicycle tyres, leading to a safer ride for Trekking, City, Road, Mountain and Cargo bikes or e-bikes.
Lightweight and durable tyre pressure sensors mounted on the tyre valve monitor the air pressure and the temperature of the bicycle tyres and transmit real-time data via Bluetooth low-energy technology to the existing bicycle display, a compatible bike computer or a mobile APP (iOS or Android). The sensors are also compatible with multiple Garmin devices.
The tyre pressure is displayed when the ride begins and can be easily adjusted using the digital pressure gauge function. The pressure changes are visible in the display or in the mobile APP while the tyres are being inflated with the help of a simple bicycle pump.
Riding with the optimal tyre pressure leads to more riding comfort, extended battery range and better handling. If the actual pressure deviates from the optimal pressure, the biker is warned via a notification on the bike display or mobile APP. Timely warnings of punctures or air leaks contribute to a safer ride and increased lifespan of bicycle tyres and rims. Visit hall 9.1 booth C23 at Eurobike to learn more about AIRsistant.
