The aptly named Mammoth from Blackburn is a high volume pump with a sleek minimal body design and high quality feel. The performance belies its pocket size and we were able to get a lot of air into our tyres with relative ease.
If you do need to squeeze some extra pressure in you can switch to over to the ‘high’ setting, so this a good choice for skinnier-tyred bikes too.
The anodised ﬁnish and sturdy construction make the Mammoth very smooth to use and we liked the classy details of rubberised snap-on valve cover and red detailing – okay, that may be cosmetic but it just adds to the impact of this very well made pump.
The switchable valves lock on with a twist action, which keeps the smooth lines of the body clear of levers but can make attaching it a bit ﬁddly if your hands are cold, so we didn’t ﬁnd this quite as good as other models for ease of handling.
