Make Your Rides Safer with Tire Pressure Monitoring System by Torxe



The condition of your tires has a direct impact on your safety on the road. If your tires are underinflated for some reason, your bike may feel harder to operate properly. When the pressure is lower than normal, tires run hot resulting in their fast deterioration. One moment they can even fail completely, which means you will almost certainly go down.

When your tires are overinflated, the contact surface reduces resulting in loss of traction, especially on gravel or bumpy roads. Besides, a puncture can happen at any moment. It would be great to have a system that can monitor the state of your tires at all times and warn you in case of a sudden loss of pressure or when its level is too low or too high. Today, we can offer an affordable solution by Torxe a portable TPMS Kit that can be mounted securely on your handlebar.

I ordered the FOBO brand about two weeks ago. However due to the virus they will not be shipped till April 15th, they're coming from Malaysia. I've been corresponding with one of the engineers. He was apologizing for not being able to get them shipped because of lock down. I kept telling him no problem I understand completely... About the FOBO, I like that it will bluetooth to your cellphone. No need for a dash mount device. I also ordered the valve stem tee's

Do you always ride with your cell phone mounted on the dash? What if you need GPS on the phone? I personally would prefer a dedicated display of tire status

You dont need to have it on your dash or up on your phone. You can use gps on your phone all day long and Fobo will still alert you if a temp or pressure condition is outside your selected range.

Where is this alert, meaning how do you know its alerting you? Some of us, well at least me, are technically challenged. I dont want to have to pair three different devices all talking to each other to find out I have a tire going flat.

It alerts on the screen, if you choose to have it up. Even if you don’t have the screen up, it alerts in your helmet. I use the display when I’m checking pressures, but I never look at it again. Only when I get an audible alarm do I look at pressures while riding, though you can leave it up all the time if you want.

For the rare rider that does not have a smartphone up and also does not have any audio going into their helmet, a handlebar display would be better.

I think the one in this thread looks cool. I just already have Fobo and find it to be superb.
