Best mini pump for MTB
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The first time you use this pump, you will wonder how you put up with any other mini pump you've used previously. Just by holding this pump in your hand you realize that it's design is well thought out and the quality is unlike any other pump you've wasted your money on before. Think of the nicest floor pump you've used and shrink it down into a nice package that fits conveniently in a hydration pack.
This pump is about 12 inches long and has a 24in hose with a chuck that works with both schrader and presta valves. It isn't the lightest pump out there, but is not noticeable in a hydration pack. For the punch that it packs, it is well worth any weight penalty woes you may have. This pump saves tons of time pumping up MTB tires and getting you rolling again quickly by using the attached foot peg and allowing a better position for pumping. The option for a pressure guage may be handy for those really picky about their pressure, but certainly is not necessary.
A frame mount is included with this pump, but feel it may be a bit bulky to fit on a frame. I highly recommend this pump, you will not be disappointed!
