Kickstart your tires with Stompump

Foot pump from the creators of Barfly Garmin mounts

From the creators of the Barfly comes the Stompump. It's a portable, foot-powered air pump that can be mounted to a bike's water bottle cage bolts. It's currently on Kickstarter looking for funding.

The foot-activated inflator is claimed to air up tires three times faster than a typical hand pump, with less energy. 

In addition to bike tires, Stompump can be used to air up any large-volume, low- to medium-pressure tire, even on cars and motorcycles.

Air filter and storage

The Stompump includes an air filter, not so your tires have clean, non-polluted air inside them, but rather to keep the pump's internals dirt and debris free for smooth operation.

The middle portion of the pump is a storage area. It's 22.2 x 53mm, enough for some patches or tire plugs. 

The pump is rebuildable and repairable with simple disassembly, the company claims. 

On-bike mounting

Stompump includes what it calls a 'frame dock', which attaches to a bike's bottle cage bosses. Also included is a hook-and-loop safety strap.

Stompump has about two months left on its Kickstarter and its well over halfway to its goal of $10,500 (£7,392 / AU$13,544). Stomp Cycles reports having two years of engineering and testing into the project as well as a résumé of products for Cervélo, Specialized, Sigma and Cycliq.
