DO NOT RELY ON THE RULE OF THUMB IS NOT A RULE

The obligatory thumb pressure test before a bike tour is now no longer needed. This is now done by the AIRSPY tyre pressure sensor. Once mounted on the valve, it constantly monitors the tyre pressure and transmits the real-time data to compatible bike computers (GARMIN) or smartphones with the SKS MYBIKE app. The inconspicuous air spy sounds an alarm should pressure deviations be detected, thus preventing the notorious “slow puncture”.

Bring your performance to a new level:

  • Better safety & riding comfort
  • Less tyre wear
  • Improved braking distance
  • Best puncture protection

THE DIGITAL TYRE PRESSURE SENSOR

  • Permanent tyre pressure monitoring with an alarm function
  • Data transmission to compatible smartphones or bike computers via Bluetooth or ANT+
  • Can also be used as a mobile digital pressure gauge
  • Dustproof and watertight
  • Schrader (SV) and Presta/Dunlop (AV/DV) version

TYRE PRESSURE CALCULATOR

The tyre pressure calculator from SKS GERMANY calculates the right tyre pressure based on your information. This ensures better riding comfort, safety and puncture protection.

The digital age offers many advantages, also in the bike industry. The best example of the use of digital technology on a bicycle is the innovative COMPIT system. SKS GERMANY has developed free, service-oriented software tools: The SKS MYBIKE app and the SKS DEALER PORTAL. The tools sync and serve as a modern communication platform between dealers and consumers.

The SKS MYBIKE app allows you to bike with confidence. It helps you navigate and plan your route and provides you information on storm warnings, dealer locations, and service stations. The application can be started immediately without logging in. Additional features include the clean cockpit, speedometer, digital bicycle bell, and the bicycle passport. MYBIKE saves all important data, and the data can be retrieved in the event of theft and sent immediately online to the police or the insurance company. The SKS MYBIKE app is available for iOS and Android and can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play Store.

Questions concerning the product/accessories

Does the AIRSPY affect wheel balance?
No. The AIRSPY is compact and lightweight.
If you have ultra lightweight wheels and when traveling at speeds over 60km/h a minute imbalance may be detected.

How is the AIRSPY turned on?
The AIRSPY turns on automatically. This requires that the individual wheels or the entire bike is moved for a short time.

How is the AIRSPY turned off?
The AIRSPY turns off automatically after approximately 10 minutes of inactivity.

Can the AIRSPY be used in all weather conditions?
Yes. The AIRSPY is dustproof and watertight according to protection class IP67.

How can the data measured by the AIRSPY be displayed?
An iOS or Android smartphone with the SKS MYBIKE-app installed on it is required to display the data. It is also possible to display the measured data on a compatible Garmin device.

How is the AIRSPY measured data transmitted to the display device?
Data is transferred permanently to smartphones with the SKS MYBIKE-app or bike computer (Garmin) via Bluetooth or ANT + with suitable feature.

Over what distance is the measured data transmitted to the display device?
The AIRSPY only communicates with display devices that are in the immediate vicinity (approx. 8 m).

What happens if there is a deviation in pressure?
The tyre on the display lights up red.

At what deviation from the target value does the AIRPSY issue a warning?
From a deviation of 15%, the app gives an indication of the deviation in pressure and marks the tyre in yellow.
If the deviation is 25% or higher, the system issues a warning and marks the tyre in red.

Does a Garmin device issue a warning if there is a deviation in pressure?
No, the warning function is only available on the free SKS MYBIKE-app.

Which valve types are compatible with the AIRSPY?
The AIRSPY is fully compatible with Presta (SCLAVERAND) and Schrader (AUTO) valves.
The DV valve (DUNLOP) is only compatible when an unslotted valve body is fitted.

How long does the valve have to be so that the AIRSPY can be fitted?
The valve should protrude at least 15 mm from the rim profile.

Can the AIRSPY also be used on tubeless wheels?
The AIRSPY is suitable for all tyre systems, with and without a tube.

Does the sealing fluid (tubeless design) affect the function of the AIRSPY?
No. The AIRSPY was developed explicitly for such applications.
Attention: In order to ensure the full function of the AIRSPY in tubeless applications, the tubeless milk must not clog the tubeless valve.

Can the sealing fluid be topped up by the AIRSPY mounted on the tyre valve?
No. To do this, the AIRSPY and valve adapter must be removed from the valve.

How is the tyre inflated on which the AIRSPY is installed?
It is inflated in exactly the same way as one without the AIRSPY.

For which tyre pressures can the AIRSPY be used?
The AIRSPY is designed for a pressure range (relative pressure: overpressure) between 0.0 bar and 8.3 bar or 0 PSI and 120 PSI.

How accurate are the AIRSPY measurements?
The AIRSPY measures very accurately with a tolerance of +/- 1 percent of the measured value.

Can the AIRSPY be secured against theft?
The AIRSPY includes U-locks, which may be mounted with the system to prevent theft.

How is the AIRSPY supplied with energy?
A CR2032 button cell battery is required to operate the AIRSPY. This is included with the AIRSPY.

Can and does the battery need to be replaced?
Yes, the battery should be replaced after a maximum of 500 operating hours or approx. 3 years.

Does the ambient temperature affect the service life of the battery?
Yes. Low ambient temperatures (below 10°C) greatly reduce the service life of the battery.
-app?
Make sure the AIRSPY sensors are activated by moving or shaking for several seconds. The Bluetooth function on the smartphone must be switched on. For Android smartphones, the location function (GPS) must be activated when it is first connected.

How are the pressure loss warning levels defined?
The warning levels are fixed, based on the applicable guidelines and cannot be changed by the user.
Green: tyre pressure +/- 15% of target pressure – no action is required.
Yellow: tyre pressure +/- 15% – 25% of target pressure – adjust the tyre pressure at the next opportunity.
Red: tyre pressure +/- 25% of target pressure – stop immediately and adjust the tyre pressure.

The AIRSPY battery indicator changed from green to amber or red. What does that mean?
Four green bars: battery capacity is adequate, no action is required
Two yellow bars: battery capacity is low, replace the battery at the next opportunity
One red bar: battery is very low, replace the battery immediately

Is the AIRSPY compatible with all ANT devices?
The AIRSPY transmits on the ANT + radio network standard, but in order to process this data, you need an appropriate application. So far, this is only available for GARMIN devices. You can find a list of compatible GARMIN devices here: https://apps.garmin.com/en-US/apps/f89f3680-5a47-48d0-baff-3c25c99f5d07.
