The DXII weighs 160g, but that’s a small price to pay for such a solid build. If Topeak could shave some weight off, it’d be even better value for money.
The butted aluminium body is 250mm long, so it’ll ﬁt in most packs. The Kraton T-handle locks ﬁrmly into the body for carrying and opens to give a well-proportioned, stable grip to push against.
The thumb lock produces a good seal on both Presta and Schrader valves via the ‘SmartHead’. Inﬂation is smooth and the pump can handle high volumes.
