WHY YOU WANT CRANK BROTHERS KLIC DIGITAL PUMP
£209.99 › Inflation magnet
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.
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.
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.
Tyre in ation can be done with the burst tank in place or not. The gauge can be set to psi or bar.
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
