Crankbrothers Klic Floor Pump Digital & Burst Tank review£210.00

Solid and smart tubeless maintenance

BikeRadar score3/5

The Klic stylishly integrates a track pump with the removable Burst Tank for seating tubeless tyres. It’s solidly put together, and the hose and digital gauge stow neatly inside the pump handle.

Once removed, they can be snapped into place on top of the tank (or onto the pump, if the tank has been removed) via a magnetic male/female joint. The valve head can be unscrewed and flipped between Presta and Schrader fittings, and the hose is an adequate length.

Used as a standalone pump, the Klic is stable — thanks to its 750mm-tall alloy body and broad triangular base – and smooth. Its 260mm-wide handle is a plus when you’re trying to squeeze those last few psi in, and the battery-powered display is positioned high enough that it’s easy to read.

Because there’s only one hose and the gauge is attached to it, you can’t connect the gauge to the burst tank (to help you inflate it to the right pressure) and the tank to your wheel at the same time, which is annoying. 

Once full, a flip of the tank’s lever will seat most tyre and rim combos easily. You can get a decent track pump and standalone tubeless inflator for half the price though.
