Prevent Accidents Caused by Underinflated Tires with the TPMS Kit by Torxe



Underinflated tires run hot, which reduces their service life. Besides, it makes your bike handle bad and could lead to a complete failure. In extreme cases, the lack of pressure may become the cause of rim damage and even a road accident. That is why it is important to monitor your tire pressure at all times. You can surely check the pressure before the trip, but what about the sudden loss of pressure in case of a puncture?

When the pressure is too high, the wheels become too stiff and the contact with the road is reduced resulting in a lack of traction. In this case, the bike can become unstable on gravel or bumpy road. The TPMS kit by Torxe available at our store is designed to monitor tire pressure and temperature and warn the rider about sudden or gradual deviations from the norm.

This is a ridiculous idea. Just keep a tire pressure gauge and check your tire pressures. I bought a 2012 Daewoo made Chevy Sonic with a TPMS, and when I had new tires put on it, I had regular valve stems installed. It was going to be $150 just for replacing the TPMS sensors. I have a tire pressure gauge, and know how to use it. Just keep your tire pressure correct, and routinely inspect your tires for damage and signs of unusual wear.

That's a good point. But many riders simply want to have this additional safety feature. You can never be too safe.

It's an upsell tire pressure gauge, man, no communist agenda to rant against here. If anything, it's capitalism at it's finest! Buy this fancy thing! Or don't!

You can always get your thrills by ... I don't know ... intentionally flattening your tires? Buying the gauge and see how low they can get in real-time before the bead breaks at speed through a corner?

You know what I really hate? Tires with good tread. I paint mine with grease just to get my heart-rate up. And brakes. Threw mine out years ago and put steel heels on my boots.
