I’VE CARTED this pump to ev­ery cor­ner of the coun­try in the last 10 years: to race tracks, skateparks, and moun­tain bike trails. It’s pumped bike tyres, bi­cy­cles, cars and air beds. It has fired in more than 100psi on nu­mer­ous oc­ca­sions, and has a com­bined Schraeder/Presta fit­ting for ver­sa­til­ity. The me­tal con­struc­tion has been durable (don’t con­fuse it with the cheaper plas­tic ver­sions), and the gauge was cock-on ac­cu­rate for many years, though it’s now a few psi adrift af­ter so much use (it’s still close enough to only re­quire a small cor­rec­tion with my nor­mal pres­sure gauge, though). You can buy cheaper al­ter­na­tives, but for ac­cu­racy, longevity and ease of use, this has been stun­ning value and it’s more than paid for it­self. The cur­rent ver­sion is the Sport III: very sim­i­lar all round.
