The thick plastic piston pushes a lot of air — meaning it will work well on larger volume tyres — but it feels neither as strong nor as durable as the metal alternatives.
Easy to read gauge
Good pump volume
Not very accurate
Tricky valve connector
You can trust Cycling Weekly.
A huge gauge with a suitably massive marker bevel makes it easy to read but not very accurate.
The small connector is stiff to fit and awkward to use — we managed to bend a valve core trying to hold it on properly, no thanks to a super-stiff locking lever.
It does get better with use but it’s still far from ideal. This pump took the fewest strokes to 100psi thanks to a generous volume that is further increased by a handle that returns a long way on the ‘up stroke’ — certainly further than feels natural when pumping.
