Blackburn Airstik SL Carbon mini pump review
There’s not enough red anodising in the bike world, so we’re glad to see Blackburn bringing it back with this Presta valve-only mini pump.
It measures just 157mm un-extended and weighs 51g (including mount). It has a double chamber and pumps air from both the barrel and the shaft to save time.
It still takes work to get your inner tubes up to pressure though: 250 strokes got a 700×23 tyre to a usable 91psi before we ran out of strength. Nonetheless, it’s sturdy and guaranteed.
