Topeak Pocket Rocket DXII mini pump

The Pocket Rocket’s marketing boast that it can achieve pressures of 160psi sounds a little to good to be true, but it quickly became apparent that this pump means business.

The push-on connector with flip-out lever seals well with no leaks, but it is the smooth, positive action which really makes this pump a joy to use.

My arm needed a rest at 180 easy strokes (65psi), but the Pocket Rocket felt like it would have kept going and going. You might need a few mates handy if you want to test that 160psi claim though.
