Simple locking mechanism
Large foot base plate
I admit arm strength isn't my forte, so hats off to Cannondale for achieving a tick on my track pump wish list.
The simple locking mechanism bites the valve securely, allowing me to use both hands on the handle, without the need for a glamorous assistant.
The base plate is large enough to stand on, keeping the pump stable and nearly a metre of hose keeps you from feeling on top of your bike.
