Airspy FAQ

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.

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

The AIRSPY turns off automatically after approximately 10 minutes of inactivity.

Yes. The AIRSPY is dustproof and watertight according to protection class IP67.

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.

Data is transferred permanently to smartphones with the SKS MYBIKE-app or bike computer (Garmin) via Bluetooth or ANT + with suitable feature.

The AIRSPY only communicates with display devices that are in the immediate vicinity (approx. 8 m).

The tyre on the display lights up red.

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.

No, the warning function is only available on the free SKS MYBIKE-app.

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.

The valve should protrude at least 15 mm from the rim profile.

The AIRSPY is suitable for all tyre systems, with and without a tube.

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.

No. To do this, the AIRSPY and valve adapter must be removed from the valve.

It is inflated in exactly the same way as one without the AIRSPY.

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.

The AIRSPY measures very accurately with a tolerance of +/- 1 percent of the measured value.

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

A CR2032 button cell battery is required to operate the AIRSPY. This is included with the AIRSPY.

Yes, the battery should be replaced after a maximum of 500 operating hours or approx. 3 years.

Yes. Low ambient temperatures (below 10°C) greatly reduce the service life of the battery.

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.

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.

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

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.


If your Garmin bike computer detects an error with the data field or sensors, error codes will appear on the display.

“B1” here means bike 1; B2 for bike 2 etc.

The number after the colon is then the error code with the following meaning:

:1 Front wheel Airspy ID is faulty or missing.

:2 Rear wheel Airspy ID is faulty or missing.

:3 Airspy ID is not specified or is faulty.

:4 The same ID has been specified twice.
