High volume, small footprint.
When it comes to designing items like the Airstick Anyvalve Mini Pump, we're usually happy to yield to Blackburn's expertise. But. We do have one critique: instead of Airstick, we would've called the thing Airlog. It's light and small enough to warrant the "stick" categorization, but the amount of air it pushes is less like a stick and more like a flourishing oak trunk. That's because the Airstick features Blackburn's high volume design, which pushes more air per stroke and doubles up on that already increased volume by inflating your tire during the pull stroke, too.
Despite that huge functionality, the Airstick lives up to its name at a reasonable claimed weight of 137g. That's not as low as the Airstick SL, and it isn't quite a toss-in-the-pocket-and-forget size pump, but it's a helluva lot more convenient than carting around a floor pump. The handle folds out into a T, and Blackburn's AnyValve pump head is compatible with Presta, Schrader, and Dunlop valves. Blackburn includes a cage mount to help clear pocket space and ensure you never leave the Airstick on your counter in a bout of pre-ride forgetfulness.

- Q & A
Light and Packable
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
While I haven't had to use this on the trail yet (knock on wood) it's super nice to pack as it fits just along the side of my pack so I barely know its there. The handle gives nice leverage for pumping and the versatility of the Anyvalve is great for group rides!
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
Small enough to be tossed in a gear bag, durable enough to hold up to regular use, and decent pressure when pumping up your tires. The main draw for this pump was the Anyvalve feature. While most of our bikes are Presta, we do have a few Schrader in the mix and it is always a pain to carry around the screw in attachment to make that change. This pump solves that problem and makes pumping tires in a mixed bike group a breeze. For the price it is a great pump.
A duet of pleasures
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Finally a pump I can use to pump up my prestas and also hook up my schrader buddies quickly on the trail. No more fussing around taking a rubber valve out and flipping around.
