This product is featured in: Track pumps: Seven of the best.

Joint lowest priced in the test, the pump from the Big Blue Tool company needed to punch above its weight or offer enough performance for the lower cost.

Its make-up consists of a lot of plastic and this ultimately, is what let it down.

Verdict

The handle in particular feels overly flexy, and while it doesn’t affect the amount of air that goes into the tyre for a given stoke (it took 27 to get up to pressure) it does feel less efficient and can lead to you loading the barrel and shaft in a less than perfect, non-perpendicular fashion.

In its favour, the mid-sized pressure gauge was supremely accurate.
