The TP-11 (now known as the Kompressor) has been around for ever, and is still a bikeshop favourite.

It’s easy to see why when you try and pick it up – a steel barrel and cast iron base make it a real bruiser – and everything’s replaceable. The fold-out feet are rock solid and the pump’s rated to 224psi, so it’s the obvious choice for real high pressure situations such as track racing. We tested the old style two-part head, which worked perfectly. There’s a dual head version too, but we wouldn’t recommend choosing the AVACS smart head, it’s not the best out there. You’ll need a screwdriver to set the target pressure needle, but the gauge is good and the rubber hose has a decent reach. If you feel like you’re pumping tyres full time, this is the pump that’ll last you the longest.
