Silca has redesigned their Co2 head with the Eolo III. Evolving since 1982, the Eolo III is the third generation using a high precision spool valve designed to allow you to carefully regulate Co2 going into the tire simply by pressing the inflator onto the valve stem.
As is typical with Silca, the head is constructed completely of metal, contataining to plastic pieces which are prone to fail. A nice addition to the metal construction though, rubber o-rings insulate your fingers from the head and provide a level of customization to the head.
The Eolo III head is manufactured in Indiana for the highest quality materials exclusively on Citizen Swiss lathes which are renowned in the medical, aerospace, and avionics fields for their high-precision.
Included in this package is the Eolo III head and 2 Silca Ultra-Premium Co2 cartridges, which are made in Austria.
