- Great design
- Very accurate
- Short hose
- Wobbly whilst pumping

Another real looker, the Birzman’s polished aluminium design will appeal to the tool geek.
The Snap-It connector is fast and easy once you get the hang of it, clicking on and off Presta valves quickly with zero leakage, together with a handy air bleed button for dropping the pressure quickly and accurately (but it’s not compatible with tubes that have a removable core).

Accuracy is superb, and is right up there with the digital Lezyne. However, the low-slung gauge with its green on black type isn’t the easiest to read and the hose is a little on the short side. The metal handle is comfortable but you’ll need gloves — it’s freezing in winter!
It’s up there with the best but lost a point for being wobbly after losing a stick-on rubber grip from its base.
