CYCLING TIPS: SILCA TATTICO BT TAKES OUT BEST MINI ROAD PUMP


   

CYCLING TIPS: SILCA TATTICO BLUTOOTH TAKES OUT BEST MINI ROAD PUMP!

Dave Rome from CyclingTips recently did a huge test review on 45 mini pumps. His article "The best mini pumps for road, gravel & MTB - 45 Tested!" can be found linked below plus a few excerps for your reading pleasure by Dave.  

Dave Rome - "When it comes to putting things on my bike or in my pockets, I’m a minimalist. For years I’ve carried just CO2 on my rides and hoped for the best, or cheekily relied on others for a pump on long rides."

"However, if you’re not racing, CO2 is wasteful and carries an element of risk. Will it work as intended? Have you accidentally pinched that tube you’re about to fill? Are you about to give yourself a freeze burn? And what if you flat again? A pump saves panic."

"However, almost every time I’ve used a mini-pump I’m left painfully aware of how inadequate some of them are. Because of that, I wanted to know which ones are worth carrying on each and every ride, and which should be avoided."

"This is the most physically painful test I’ve done to date (but I’ve now got arms like The Rock as a result), and while the majority of mini pumps tested put the desired amount of air into the tyre, some took a significant and tiring effort to do so. Some were a fiddle, while others simply rattled consistently when not in use. And a select few, by comparison, were almost a joy to use. And while I’m still yet to find perfection after having tested 45 well-respected mini pumps, I’ll happily settle for a few of the better options."
