Blackburn Air Tower HP review

Blackburn Air Tower HP track pump
Cycling Weekly Verdict

As such, it's mega tight to fit and remove and almost impossible on a valve extension.

For
  • +

    Robust construction

Against
  • -

    Tight fit to valve

  • -

    Presta only

Designed for professional use, the Air Tower has a robust metal construction, with fully serviceable internals.

The Presta-only head features a bleed valve for adjustment, which is just as well, given that the floor-level dial doesn't have the largest digits.

We have one big niggle, through, and that is with the head - it has no clamp, so it relies on the rubber seals' friction to hold it in place.
