Enve's Air Pressure Station Will Inflate Your Tires to the Perfect Pressure... for $750

Nov 15, 2019
by Ed Spratt  

How much would you pay to get your tires to the perfect pressure every time? $50? $100? How about $750? Enve's latest product is offering to do just that but it doesn't come cheap.

The Air Pressure Station connects to your compressor and will stop the air flowing when your pre-set pressure is reached. The small, wall-mounted box was first developed to be used in-house at Enve but they have now decided to roll it out to potential customers. It is designed to be used primarily in bike shops, large events or other places where lots of tires need to be inflated quickly.

It should be easy to operate with simple plus and minus buttons on the face of the unit used to set the pressure before connecting the air chuck to the valve stem. Next, the unit will begin inflation until the rider's exact pressure is reached. It will then notify you with a beep, letting you know that it is now safe to remove the air chuck. If you are installing a new tubeless tire, there is a program that will fire five strong blasts of air to seat it. Once it can detect a stable tire pressure, the device will begin inflating to your desired amount.


Consistent tire pressures have been the main goal for the Air Pressure Station and Enve claims that it is accurate to 0.5% of your desired pressure. The device also has the ability to measure back the pressure from the tire to ensure there are no issues after inflation. As well as its precise measuring system, Enve states that it will be able to remember three different pressures to make repeat inflating a lot easier.

bigquotesAt Enve, we are constantly looking for ways to improve the ride experience both on and off the bike, and historically speaking, we best achieve this by refining our carbon rim designs. What we’ve come to realize is that no matter how advanced or refined the carbon wheel becomes, something as simple as running too high or too low tire pressure will negatively impact a rider’s efficiency, traction, safety, confidence, and therefore the entire ride experience.Jake Pantone, VP of Product and Consumer Experience

With weatherproofing, a 15ft coiled hose and an NFC tag that allows users to quickly access the latest Enve tire pressure charts on their phones, it has plenty of features designed to make inflation easier. Enve knows this product isn't going to be for everyone and understand that the trusty floor pump isn't going anywhere but instead they describe it as "the ultimate inflation experience". $750 may sound like a lot to a home mechanic but shops will pay upwards of $500 for something like a BB Tapping and Facing tool so this is fairly comparable, especially if it gets used on most bikes that roll through the door.


bigquotesInitially, the inflation units were created for deployment at Enve headquarters and at events, we attend to help streamline the wheel demo experience and to educate riders on the benefits of tubeless while helping them to find their optimal tire pressures. What we found was that not only did the units instigate many conversations around tubeless tire and wheel setup, but these same consumers often asked if we had the units available for sale. This helped us validate our belief that despite all the great inflation devices on the market, there was still opportunity for a halo level inflation product from EnveBrandt Ferguson, VP of Commercial

Enve’s Air Pressure Stations are available now in North America and it will be released in Asia, UK, Europe and Australia by the end of the year. For additional information, visit enve.com

 For those complaining about the price, its meant for roadies.

The two most important things about road biking have nothing to do with how fast you actually are. The first, and most important thing, is to be the most Euro in your riding group. This means the tightest fitting clothing possible, with the most references to 70s road racing as possible, and you wear kit tailored to fit European men who weigh 150 pounds and have narrow shoulders and skinny thighs, even though you're a 190 pound mid-level executive at Adobe.

The next most important thing about road biking, and related to this $750 tire gauge (it doesn't actually come with a pump or compressor) is to signal to your coworkers/clients/professional associates how much money you are willing to spend on bike related equipment. This is how your do your dominance display. Signaling to others in your peer group that you spend more money on frivolous hobbies than the braces that your 15 year old needs is a powerful message.

 My pump has a gauge on it, since it came with said gauge, it was effectively, free.

The gauge is not accurate as far as the "number" goes, but it's repeatable, that's all that matters. Once you check the pressure with a separate gauge to determine what mark on the tire pump gauge equals your desired pressure, you are off to the races. If you're too damned stupid to stop pumping when the needle hits thy mark, then yeah, spend 750 bucks on a device that stops for you, I guess. Stupid beyond belief.

 This is *literally* just this: www.haltec.com/pc/Indoor-Only-Inflator-128p686.htm painted black with an ENVE sticker. These are normally used at automotive tire shops to idiot-proof tire inflation. One of the key benefits there is that it allows the user to be farther away from the tire in case it fails during inflation. Important for a truck tire—less so for a bike.

That said. These inflaters sell for $800, so ENVE isn't being very ENVE on the price, but they are being ENVE on the overkill.
  • 1 0
 Could be just a different version with additional cycling specific features on it. They mention they have a mode for tubeless installation? Do you know if the Haltec version has a mode for that? If not, that's still pretty cool that they didn't inflate the prices for us (heh)
  • 3 0
 But this is off + or - .3 making it .6 accuracy. At .5 I will have to go with the Enve. I was just shopping for one of these for the dental office and my ( purchased on Ebay ) engineering degree states .5 is acceptable but .6 will be way too noticeable. Don’t be fooled by imposters.
  • 1 0
 That's hilarious! It is the same one, you can even see the small indent where the haltec logo was and they just changed one of the buttons. It actually says on their site they make it in custom colors with any corporate logo though. We could all just make our own custom ones, probably for less. Not like this is the fact that pushed it to that stage, but it makes it worse for sure. Love how they both even have the same display amount of PSI.

 With a valve adapter and $750 I could go to a gas station and fill my tires to an exact pressure... 500 times.
  • 11 1
 Or drill your valve holes to size and use Schraeder valves right away. Saves you the valve adapter. Dude, if you don't even want to spend 750 on an enve air pressure station (and maybe some more for the Silca pump to do the actual inflation) then why are you even here?

 @vinay: just converted my 26” tires to tubeless with a Schrader valve. Well, wheel was already Schrader but had a buddy order the Stan’s kit for me and he ordered Presta initially. When I told him it was Presta he was like....”no one uses Schrader anymore”. And of course I said...well I do. I love it, no adaptor required!

 @lightsgetdimmer: Yep, I really prefer Schraeder over Presta too. At least you'll never accedentally unscrew the valve core!
  • 2 2
 @vinay: How is that even a problem???
a) you only need to unscrew it a little bit to inflate it
b) if for some reason you do keep unscrewing and unscrewing and unscrewing until it pops out, you rotate it clockwise and - tada! - it's back in. Crazy, I know.
  • 2 0
 @rrolly: When I got into mountainbiking back in 2001, I got my bike with presta valves. Sometimes when I unscrewed the valve cap, the whole valve core came along and blew past my head. Scary and annoying that I had to find it back. Soon enough I swapped to Schraeder. The valve cap threads to the outside of the stem, not to the valve core. You won't ever unscrew the valve core when you remove the valve cap.

Last year I got the ProCore system which comes with some Presta valve system again. Annoying as f-k as sometimes the sealant creeps from the outer system into the tube bit of the valve and blocks it. Even when you remove the valve core, you can't clean it out. I now use a regular tube for the inner chamber and inflate the outer chamber with a regular tubeless valve. There is just no advantage of Presta over Schraeder except for maybe very narrow rims that won't accept the larger diameter valve hole. But such narrow rims have no business on a mountainbike anyway.

 I've had the same Joe Blow pump for 17 years. I bought it for $30. It has a little gauge built in. I pump up my tires until the needle reaches a certain little mark on the gauge. Then I go ride my bike. Works every time, and it has cost me less than $2 a year.

 While this is this a bit much, it is interesting how much time people put into their suspension but kind of ignore their tire pressure.
  • 6 0
 I think it’s more that most people just aren’t that sensitive that they need everything within 0.5psi. Just like most people aren’t going to be that sensitive to one or two clicks either way on the suspension knobs.
  • 3 1
 @sino428: Don't disagree, but I think it's funny when people worry about a click or two here and there and then don't check their tire pressure before a ride. I'm guilty of this from time to time. Bought a simple digital pressure gauge a couple seasons back. Makes a huge difference.
  • 3 0
 @sino428: Or people just stop giving a damn after they realize that the ambient air pressure will change about 0.3bar as they descend the Megavalanche. Obviously most don't do downhill runs like that all the time but with about 0.1bar (1.5psi) per km vertical it seems daft being picky about 0.5psi. Not sure how much tire temperature actually changes on a regular ride (and the temperature of an air spring too) but if that is significant I would have expected at least the availability of devices to inflate/purge with nitrogen (or dried air). Sometimes I see pictures of bike journalists adjusting the air pressure of the rear suspension when out on a cold ride. At the top of the hill, about to bomb down some epic descend. Seems to me like they could just as well adjust air pressure by feel alone.

If I am off by more than 0.003 psi the small bump compliance and lateral stiffness is affected making my ride harsh and unforgiving and most likely ruining my strava times.

 "calibrated" is the key word here. It doesn't matter if the tool was $100 or $1000 if it's not calibrated regularly, which no home mechanic (including me!) ever does. I'd love to see the true torque numbers for all the torque wrenches people have at home.
  • 1 0
 TLDR, but is this thing actually calibrated?

You could put together a small system yourself for under £/$750 with a pressure transducer calibrated to UKAS standards that would look far less pretentious than this.

I wish I had the finances and backing to start a company, then sprinkle whatever the Enve VP does on his cereal and come up with some marketing bollocks like this.

Game changer.

 My neighbors and I were having a tire pressure/inflation discussion this summer after I converted my 26” wheels to tubeless and the problem I found was what exactly is accurate tire pressure? I checked my tires with 3 gauges after inflation and all 3 read different. By about 3 psi. The tire gauge on the floor pump, a reg stick style tire gauge and a digital gauge. My conclusion was pick one, roll with that and adjust accordingly. You’ll drive yourself mad splitting psi hairs!

 Highly recommend the Milwaukee brand air compressor. Has a digital display and is as accurate as the tire pressure sensors in my truck. Uses the same batteries as their 12v power tools. Tool number is 2475-20 and can be had for 1/10th of the price of this crap.

 If PB had this pump at the office maybe we would have the next bike test article.....so broken bike 1 the Pole ( thanks pole for the lovely read) what was the second broken frame in the test! Everything needs to stop until we have the completed article....maybe the lawyers are fighting it out in the back rooms. I didn't see a post looking for a PB reader/lawyer lately...

Plus only 1 decimal place I'll pass I need at least .01 increments for that price. ENVE also needs to replace the cheap plastic and heavy metal parts with carbon. Come on ENVE bring out the carbon version for 1500 and you get to pick the sticker colour so it matches your WC team shop van colours.

 I have so much respect for Mr Enve. He’s a business mastermind. He comes up with an good idea for a product and then decides to charge absolutely eye watering money for it knowing that people will buy it because expensive means good, right? He must walk down his marble staircase in the mornings and eat his corn flakes out of a solid gold cereal bowl and just sit there laughing his head off for the rest of the day.

 All comments about the price are silly!

For the bike park or so - should be just fine, I doubt intended use - weekend riders; any gas station has similar device that is prices +- similar;

I would say question is reliability? In case it could work over 10 years time frame exposed to the all weather conditions - why not?

Fot weekend warriors 10$ pump could server just fine,

 Frankly, I find this product insulting. This tells me that Enve thinks I'm not capable of setting tire pressure without giving them $750.

 I have always advocated that the majority of riders don't understand tires & pressure well enough only to end up spending more money unnecessarily on suspension & or tuning when looking for a certain feel or sensation. Experimenting with tire brands, casings, tread designs, and pressures is a cheap way to get more out of your bike.

While this is expensive, the first application mentioned is quite reasonable when used in the demo or boutique retailer setting. I'd be surprised if Enve thought this would be a significant growth product.

 @isaacschmidt: your comment is beside the point. To get the pressure just right, any digital tire gauge for 15 buckaroos will do. So where does the $750 plus compressor come into play in order to make it any better?
One has to have more fantasy and funky dreams of status to justify the enve product.
  • 2 0
 @Heidesandnorth: Perhaps my drivel was unclear.

I appreciate that a company is suggesting that riders are not maximizing their wheelset & tire performance potential & therefore made a product to solve that problem. Is it unreasonably priced, yes - but it addresses an issue. Do I think this is the solution & will I spend my $ on this, no. Where would the industry be if companies didn't search for solutions to problems?

More than anything it's a reminder to think critically about your tire's performance & evaluate if you're getting all you can from them from a pressure standpoint. And yes, much of the bike industry is related to funky dreams & status than practicality.
