In 1982 SILCA developed the first regulated CO2 inflator. As SILCA eminence grise Claudio himself explained, 'Before EOLO, you had to turn the cartridge and pray!'. Giving the user the ability to regulate the flow of gas into the tire was the key to widespread adoption of compressed gas for roadside use.
EOLO III builds on the SILCA tradition by using an ultra-precise spool valve design with light action spring to give the user perfect control of the flow into the tire. The full metal construction of the EOLO III contains no plastic parts and is manufactured entirely from 6063 series aluminum and stainless steel. Hardened tool steel puncture pin is more than 2X the hardness of traditional puncture pins to ensure smooth operation in all conditions over many years.
