Yes it’s expensive, but this lightweight mid-size pump challenges the supremacy of frame-fitting pumps in its performance. The head screws on securely to Presta or Schrader valves, the 60cm hose makes the pump convenient to use and the hose screws securely into the base when not in use.
The smooth curved handle is comfortable, and in use a small stainless steel foot folds out so that the Micro converts into a miniature floor pump. It has a CNC-machined aluminium barrel, shaft and handle, as well as great ergonomics and solid, quality construction. This is the best middle-sized mini pump we’ve tested yet and the HPG model has an added gauge in the hose.
