Topeak Peak DXII Master Blaster mini pump review£19.99

Well built inflator

BikeRadar score3.5/5

The DXII weighs 160g, but that’s a small price to pay for such a solid build. If Topeak could shave some weight off, it’d be even better value for money.

The butted aluminium body is 250mm long, so it’ll fit in most packs. The Kraton T-handle locks firmly into the body for carrying and opens to give a well-proportioned, stable grip to push against.

The thumb lock produces a good seal on both Presta and Schrader valves via the ‘SmartHead’. Inflation is smooth and the pump can handle high volumes.

Freelance Writer, UK
Guy started filling his brain with cycle stats and steaming up bike shop windows back in 1980. He worked the other side of those windows from '89 while getting a degree in “describing broken things covered in mud" (archaeology). Dug historical holes in the ground through the early '90s, then became a pro bike tester in '97. Guy has ridden thousands of bikes and even more components the world over since then and can remember them all in vivid, haunting detail. Can't remember where the car keys are, though.
