NO LOSS ADAPTER
PRODUCT: This is a fairly pedestrian product that is ingenious in its
simplicity. The Works Connection No
Loss Adapter is a screw-on addition
to your air-fork pump that ensures
the pressure you set is the pressure
you get. The No Loss Adapter is
4 1/2 inches long and spins directly onto the pump, then onto your
machine’s air-fork Schrader valve. It
has a rubber seal that makes contact
with the Schrader valve, so it seals
itself before the adapter is removed.
Once you set the pressure, you will
not lose any air when the adapter/
pump is removed, which is an issue
with regular pumps.
POSITIVE: The No Loss Adapter is
simple and effective. Also, the additional length makes it easier to access
hard-to-get-at Schrader valves. It is
important to check the air pressure on
your Showa Triple Airs prior to every
ride, but achieving the correct pressure is always a challenge since you
lose pressure every time the pump is
unscrewed. The Works Connection No
Loss Adapter has a swivel and seal
feature that lets you get at the valve,
set the pressure and unscrew it without the slightest hiss.
BOTTOM LINE: If you own a
machine with an air fork, get a No
Loss Adapter. Remember, the pump
sets the pressure; it doesn’t check the
pressure. Always set your pressure
before you ride.
