Reassuringly hefty, at just over 1,500g, and with an incredibly stable base, this classy looking polished aluminium track pump just screams quality before you have even had a chance to try it out. But try it we have and in three months of use, it’s been spot-on.
The easy to handle valve head uses separate steel attachments for Schraeder and Presta valves rather than the occasionally temperamental dual head attachments that are favoured by some other pumps (when you’re not using it the extra valve head can be screwed into the base).
The pump action is super-smooth and, at a push, you could go up to a whopping 220psi, which is way more than you’ll ever need in your bike tyres. Although the pressure gauge is located in the pump’s base, it’s still easy to read.
Thanks to the sturdy design as well as its workshop abuse-proof construction, this ﬂoor pump should see you through a good number of years of regular tyre inﬂation before needing to see any service attention. When it does though, a full range of spares is available.
