HIRO Side-Lever Locking Presta Chuck- Carbon Steel

96 reviews

What is it?

A locking Presta valve chuck that stays securely connected at 220+psi for road and track situations, allowing both hands to remain on the pump handle, even when inflating disc wheels.

Who's it for?

The Hiro Chuck is a finely crafted tool for those obsessed with the details as well as the experience of cycling. For high-pressure Presta valve applications, there is no better chuck. 

Why We Designed It | Product Specs | Getting Started

Why We Designed It:

Years ago while Josh was working with the Team CSC at the Dauphine Libere, he noticed one of their mechanics using the most amazing little chuck to manage the disc wheel inflation.  Unlike anything he had seen before, it was all metal and used a 'lollipop' lever on the side to lock onto the valve stems in disc wheels.  The mechanic explained that these were made in Japan and were coveted by all the Euro-Pro mechanics due to their scarcity.  So Josh set out to improve the design and make it available to cyclists everywhere.

Hiro Presta Valve Adapter

The perfect solution for my TT rear-wheel disc, and for all my other Presta valve pump head usage. No other Presta valve adapter performs as fine as the Hiro. Highly recommended.

Hiro Chuck

Nice piece of kit that works great. However, due to it's length and the weight of the hose it can sit cockeyed on the valve stem. I think there should be an option to buy this instead of the press on chuck when purchasing a floor pump.
