Topeak 2018 Preview

by Brian Mullin on September 8, 2017

At the Eurobike show, Topeak was showing off some of their innovative 2018 products. The Shuttle Gauge Digital can be attached to a pump or used alone while the Turbo Morph Digital hand pump now has an integrated digital gauge. Their Twin Turbo technology, which allows the user to pull to compress air, and then push to inflate for 50% less effort is being used in their trick Mountain TT Twin Turbo hand pump and the JoeBlow Twin Turbo floor pump. The PakGo X bike hard case for traveling has a plethora of features, while the FlashStand MX is a foldable floor maintenance and storage stand designed for bikes with hollow cranksets. Lastly, the FastFuel top tube bag has evolved into the FastFuel DryBag, and it utilizes a streamlined hard shell to keep your goodies dry.

Shuttle Gauge Digital

This easy-to-read, aluminum Shuttle Gauge Digital can be attached to a pump or used alone to provide accurate pressure readings up to 300psi. The rotating head will work on Presta, Schrader, or Dunlop valves. This can be for bikes, motorcycle/car tires, forks, or shocks, locking down with a locking lever. This gauge also includes an air pressure release button.

Turbo Morph Digital

A new Morph pump is in town! Topeak has advanced the award-winning Moprh with high tech. Top-mounted flip-down digital gauge makes reading pressure easy and provides accurate tire pressure up to 160psi. The fold-out foot pad and flexible hose provide excellent stability for more efficient pumping.

Mountain Tt Twin Turbo

Topeak has expanded on their 2017 TwinTurbo floor pump engineering by adding in a hand pump with the Twin Turbo technology for 2018, the Mountain TT Twin Turbo. The Mountain TT Twin Turbo has taken the TT Twin Turbo technology, which allows the user to pull to compress air, and then pushing to inflate a high amount of air pressure, up to 120 psi, saving time and effort. This is ideal for large volume tires such as MTB and fat bike tires. Integrated dust cap keeps pump head clean, and thumb lock lever ensures an air-tight seal.

MSRP $32.95

JoeBlow Twin Turbo

For over 25 years, Topeak engineers have had one dream in mind: create the ultimate floor pump. It must have high-pressure air output and massive volume delivery to fill both road and MTB tires easily and efficiently.

Introducing Topeak’s TurboBoost technology in the new JoeBlow Twin Turbo, a new concept for floor pumps that will blow you away. It utilizes the pull and push of every stroke by filling the double chamber on the pump to maximize the output of air you are using to inflate your tires. No matter the type of tire, the JoeBlow Twin Turbo will save up to 40% of your time and effort.

Topeak made the Twin Turbo a new SmartHead DX1 full metal pump head with air release button and x-long hose. Also updated is the 3” top mount analog gauge.

MSRP: $199.95

Topeak FlashStand MX

The FlashStand MX is a maintenance and storage stand designed for bikes with hollow cranksets. The rear wheel easily lifts up onto the mount, allowing for light maintenance, washing, display, and storage.  The stand folds up when not in use for easy storage.

PakGo X

For 2018, Topeak has designed the PakGo X bike case (for 650c and 700c road and TT bikes). The PakGo X shell is made from the German polymer, Makrolon®, a polycarbonate material that makes PakGo X tougher, stronger, lighter, colorfast, and more abrasion resistant than other carriers, weighing in at 12kg/26.5lbs (case only). The upright case design allows luggage-like ease for rolling when traveling, includes a built-in TSA lock, carry handles, and four large multi-directional wheels. Two wheel bags, protective sleeves, and drivetrain cover provide protection against scratches and grease stains, along with inner pockets to help keep your gear organized. The internal mounting system (compatible with both QR axles and 12mm thru axle) holds your frameset steady, and also allows for reassembly.
