Topeak Race Rocket HP mini pump review

The Topeak Race Rocket HP mini pump is a very small, compact pump that packs an impressive punch

Topeak Race Rocket HP
Cycling Weekly Verdict

A well priced pump that is far cheaper than a lot of other leading designs. At just 82g and 18cm long, the Topeak Race Rocket HP is very compact and light and can impressively achieve 100psi on the roadside. Just be aware that the small size means you need to do a lot of pumping.

At just 18cm, the Topeak Race Rocket HP is shorter than the standard Race Rocket making it even more packable, but it still packs a punch being capable of pressures over 100psi and it's so small I had no issue keeping in my pocket. However, on rainy group rides it doesn't stay there for long: my friends keep asking to borrow it because it's so good.
