Review - Meiser Tire Gauge

05 October, 2015

Meiser Pressure Gauges feature a durable steel case with polished brass bezel all inside a 2" dial screen. The compact design makes it easy to fit in any of your bike bags. No matter what style of riding your doing tire pressure is an important aspect for the ultimate performance depending on conditions and trail.

The Meiser gauge requires no batteries so there is not worries. It is simple to use and easy to read. This gauge also features a pressure relief button to release pressure from the gauge to make is easy to pull of the valve. Every Meiser gauge is tested for accuracy to make sure it is within the .25% scale. Here is a chart of the accuracy tested:

The mechanical accuracy rating is within 2% from 25% to 75% of scale and within 3% below 25% and above 75%.
A 15 psi tire gauge is accurate to within 0.5psi from 4-11psi and is calibrated to within 0.25psi at 7.5psi
A 30psi tire gauge is accurate to within 0.6psi from 8-22psi and is calibrated to within 0.5psi at 15psi
A 60 psi tire gauge is accurate to within 1.2psi from 15-45psi and is calibrated to within 1psi at 30psi
A 100psi tire gauge is accurate to within 2psi from 25-75psi and is calibrated to within1.5psi at 50psi
A 160psi tire gauge is accurate to within 3.2 psi from 40-120psi and is calibrated to within 2psi at 80psi

Meiser makes 4 different models of this gauge that show a different psi rating. This way the gauge can me more accurate within the range of psi that your tire recommend. The Low 15 psi gauge range ideal fat bike tires where the smallest variation of pressure has a large impact on ride quality and traction. This gauge is easy and very detailed when your trying to figure out whether 9 or 9.5psi is the best jam for the softest conditions. The Semi Low 30 psi gauge range is ideal for plus size 2.8 or 3 inch tire sizes.The Middle 60 psi gauge is great for cyclocross and mtb bike riding. When you need to dial in for soft low psi conditions or hard packed higher psi rides. Lastly, the high 160 psi gauge is ideal for road riding. The 160 psi gauge is the only gauge that also comes with a schrader attachment. 

We tested this gauge last winter and we have been using it since. We tried using other gauges with the low psi that fat bikes are at and no other gauge comes close to being as accurate as the Meiser. When it comes to cyclocross, mtb and fat biking ever psi counts when performance is needed, so it easier on yourself with this gauge. At $14.95, the Meiser gauge is affordable and built to last.
