Push Intellihead Energy 2st review
Pop the dust plug of this Push pump and the Pob-shaped ‘Intellihead’ hole instantly adapts to any valve shape when the locking lever is flipped.
The T-handle rattles if the pump is attached to your bike by its velcro-assisted bottle-cage mount, but it folds out and is comfy to use with a neat plastic conical bit between handle and shaft that nestles between the knuckles for extra grunt, although it’s a bit sharp-edged if you’re not wearing gloves.
Start pumping on the High Volume setting using the full-length of the two-stage telescoping aluminium barrel, and then as your temple-veins start to pulse, lock things down to the easier effort and shorter push High Pressure mode to see you through the vinegar strokes. It’s gradual steady pumping all the way with little huff required for those puncture fixing and tube filling moments.
