This design incorporates a large 1 5/8” x 1 1/8” LCD display screen mounted in a slim 2 7/16” x 2 5-8” x ¾” handlebar mounted monitor. It easily mounts to round handlebars or can be face mounted to the brake cylinder face clamp. The handlebar clamp assembly will allow fitment on 7/8”, 1”, or 11/8” handlebars. The monitor quickly slides into or out of the mount to allow quick removal and remounting.
The lightweight, 1/3 ounce sensors feature the latest technology in external sensors on the market and are water resistant. Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS) are a proven way to increase fuel efficiency and extend tire life. No tire rebalancing is needed and each sensor comes with a patented anti-theft ring to not only prevent theft, but loss from improper installation. The sensors have a unique 20 minute battery saver mode as well as G-Force sensing to wake them up. The monitor comes with its own one hour battery saver mode to insure long life on all components. Includes instruction manual, all batteries, and a silicone protective skin for the monitor.
See earlier post named 6 month update from 11-12-13. I've been using this unit for almost 3 years now and would not ride without it. It still needs to have the sensors blown out once in awhile but that's my only complaint. Battery life is as advertised. I've been changing them every 9-10 months but could go longer. Had something odd happen the other day. I picked up a 30 caliber shell casing in the rear tire on a rural road. The shell went into the Bridgestone tire like a cookie cutter. It sealed itself in and held air pressure. I immediately knew it was there because it thumped on every revolution of the tire. I still had 18 miles to get home. I was wondering if I drove it slow, how long the brass case would last before the road ate it up and turned it from a casing into a tube and let all the air out. I drove slow (25) on the shoulder and watched my TPMS like a hawk. To my surprise I made it all the way. I didn't have to guess how my tire was holding up, the TPMS told me. Once again, this is the best piece of gear I ever installed on my wing.
As previously noted my rear sensor malfunctioned while on a long trip. The replacement sensor arrived and functioned correctly for one week before suddenly registering my rear tire as 7 lbs low. After verifying that the sensor was faulty I returned the system for the second time. Cycle Giant then sent me a whole new system which I promptly returned to Wingstuff for a refund. A device designed to enhance safety, that malfunctions, is not acceptable. Would not recommend.
Purchased this item in Feb. specifically for a month long trip I had planed in May. Less than one week into the trip the rear tire pressure suddenly registered zero. After making an emergency stop I found no problem with the tire. I contacted Cyclegiant and returned the system. They determined the rear sensor had quit transmitting and sent me a new one. I had very few miles on the system when it malfunctioned. I will update my review if the new sensor proves to be reliable.
I've had my TireGard unit since September 2012 and been through battery replacements and also some glitches with losing a sensor signal - which was fixed by rescanning....no big deal.
A few days ago I was riding along a highway at 90Kmph and suffered a rapid decrease in front tire pressure. I got a warning from TireGard and was pulled over, off the road in about 30 seconds. Within another 30 seconds the tire was FLAT.
Tiregard warned me BEFORE I felt anything from the front end. If I hadn't TireGard I think it would have been very very messy.
I'm satisfied by investment has paid off.
I have been running this unit about six months and 12k miles. Here's what I experienced. It worked flawlessly for the first month and then I started seeing delays in the display unit syncing up with the senders. Sometimes it could take half an hour or never. I changed the batteries (which are supposed to last for a year) with no resolution. I then noticed some moisture on the air pressure side of the tire sensors. I blew it out with my mouth several times and that solved the problem. Later I got a can of compressed air you use to clean computer parts, this works great. Every now and then like when adding air to the tire, I blow it out and that keeps it dry. Thereby, if you use liquid tire sealant, forget this type of TPM system. I've seen in other posts that guys have had a problem with rain getting into the display unit. I've been using the silicone sock that comes with it and have had no problems thus far even though it gets rained on regularly. And most importantly, one day I had the front wheel valve stem let loose. I lost all the air in the front tire in about 15 seconds at 50mph. The unit started beeping and flashing immediately just as I was beginning to notice the steering feeling different. I didn't have to guess what was going on. The unit did it's job with no delays and I was able to make a safe stop. Being able to glance down and see the real time pressures in your tires is great reassurance. Touring across Arizona and Utah deserts this past summer I watched tire pressures increase by as much as 12psi from cold measurements at the beginning of the ride. I knew pressures increase but now I know how much. Conclusion: This is the single best accessory I ever purchased for my bike. It is true that the unit is not perfect and I wish the display unit was hard wired. That is why I didn't give it a 5. I rarely give 5's to anything. If and when this unit finally dies or gets stolen, I would get another.
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
