Video comparison: Which tubeless tank is best?

We put systems from Bontrager, Beto, Zefal and Scwalbe to the test to find the best tubeless inflation system.

With the rise of tubeless systems, the need for easy inflation has also gone up. We've taken 4 tubeless inflators and pitted them against each other to find out which one is best.

We tested each system with a 25mm road tyre and a 32mm cyclocross tyre to see which coped best with a larger volume. We used the same rim, with no sealant and all the systems were pre-loaded to 160psi. 

It's quite clear to see that the larger volume tyre needs some help from sealant
