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.
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.
