Flip the rubbery straps and release the pump from its holster for quick draw pumping, with a trigger handle that’s easy and comfortable to use.
Uniquely, adaptors to pump up footballs and inflatable sheep are hidden in the handle – which is nice. The flap covered Smarthead design moulds the head internals to fit either Presta or Schraeder with a flip of the metal thumblock, giving good valve clampage. The solid-feeling body telescopes out to produce a familiar click-clack pump, and the large chamber can be locked down for the final high-pressure tongue-out spurts, although we got better results keeping it in the fully open position. For those with long-term pump partnerships in mind, spares are readily available.
