Blackburn Air Tower HP


Price as reviewed:

This product is featured in: Head to Head: High Pressure track pumps.

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.


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