We’ve been fans of the Transformer X since it was launched a couple of years ago – typical of the smart thinking we’ve come to expect from Topeak, it also doubles up as a bike stand. To achieve this, the base has retractable legs added, while the main barrel gains a pair of adjustable folding hooks that hold the bike’s rear wheel off the ground. And the long hose ensures you’ll be able to reach the front wheel while the bike is in the stand. Ergonomically angled handles also house the gauge, placing it closer to you to make it easier to see what pressure you’ve reached, up to a maximum of 160psi. The head is a dual version so accommodates either Presta or Schrader valves automatically and there is a bleed valve too in case you over-inflate your tyres.
