The least expensive pump on test, the HPA Floor Pump comes in well below our preferred price range for this test of £50-£90.
However, as we’d only heard good things about bike manufacturer Cube’s range-topping track pump, we felt somewhat duty-bound to test it.
There’s nothing flash about the aluminium-bodied HPA but it is easy to use and feels sturdy. It uses the same connector as used on many lower-end pumps and while a little plasticky, it works easily, even on short valves, while its large steel base with grippy rubber cover makes it stable and secure in use.
Not the most accurate, but still a worthy addition to any leisure cyclist’s shed.
