1 FEA­TURES

The Klic is a sure­footed track pump with a re­mov­able tube­less­charg­ing burst tank, al­low­ing each piece to be used in­de­pen­dently. Its 61cm air hose is hid­den within the plunger, and topped with a dig­i­tal pres­sure gauge.

2 MAG­NETS

To use, the gauge and hose must be re­moved from the plunger, then the gauge snaps on to strong mag­nets above the valves on the pump or burst tank body, and is ready to go.

3 CHARG­ING

In at­ing the 1.4-litre burst tank to its max­i­mum 160psi/11bar in­volves screw­ing the Schrader side of the re­versible head on to the tank’s valve, clos­ing the re­lease lever, then pump­ing for 45 strokes.

4 PUMP­ING

Tyre in ation can be done with the burst tank in place or not. The gauge can be set to psi or bar.

5 EF­FEC­TIVE­NESS

The Klic is beau­ti­fully made, and feels like a high pre­ci­sion tool. There’s a lit­tle lag on the pres­sure read­out, and no air bleed valve, but the gauge and hose can be used as a stand­alone pres­sure gauge.

The mag­netic at­tach­ment’s height, plus abil­ity to freely ro­tate, makes it easy to reach most valves
