How to Find The Best Electric Bicycle Pump?

Choosing the right electric bicycle pump is important, because there is little point buying an expensive product that will get little use or choosing a less expensive model that won’t withstand heavy use. In the same way, it’s foolish to purchase a bike tire pump that requires a repeated pumping action for a person who is not able to exert the required force or energy.

bicycle pump 6You will find quite a few dedicated electric bicycle pumps. Most electric bicycle tire pumps available on the market are multi-purpose devices which can inflate your car, the children’s swimming pool, and other larger inflatable products that requires inflation.

Be very careful when selecting your bicycle tire pump. Some multi-purpose pumps are not suitable for the lower pressure of a bike tire. Using the incorrect type may lead to a really expensive blown out inner tube.

Valves of the bicycle inner tubes are either Presta or Schrader. Schrader are usually much more frequently used on motor bikes and vehicles, while Presta are generally found on bicycles. The best choice is to buy an electric pump that supports both, especially if you plan to use this as an multi-purpose pump not only just for your bike.

schrader valve and presta valve

Make sure that your select a bike tire pump that features a pressure valve, so you’re able to maintain excellent tire pressure on your bicycle. A really practical element is a car cigarette lighter plug, so that you can take the pump while traveling and use it before you’ll set out on your cross-country route.

Bicycle Pump Review – Topeak Road Morph G Bike Pump with Gauge

Morph™ technology packs bicycle pump efficiency and ease of use into a compact, portable design you can bring along for the ride.

bicycle pump 8The really cool feature of this pump is that several portions of the pump are movable (morph-able), making it more convenient for emergency pumping on-the-go. The handle, which is held in place by turning the handle until it clicks into the barrel, pivots 90 degrees, allowing the user to use his/her body weight to pump when the pump is held against the floor. This is advantageous because it allows more force to be generated, less arm strength be used, and less energy be expended by the user when pumping tires. The foot pedal pivots 90 degrees from the base, allowing the user to hold the pump in place using his/her foot while pumping. After unhooking the head of the hose from the hook, the head can actually be pulled out, exposing about ~3 inches more of rubber hose, allowing the user better reach the valves on the tires. The pump head adapters can also fit both Schrader and Presta valves by flipping the two rubber/plastic adapters.

bicycle pump 9This  bicycle pump is very useful and it’s portable. Topeak Road Morph G attaches to the bike frame with the supplied flexible mounting. You can screw on the mounting, if your bike frame has that capability – or you can  mount it using the supplied other mounting hardware.

Also nice at this bicycle pump is the fold out foot rest and extension tube, which make for an easy pumping action. And of course, the handy little pressure gauge.
The key feature of this pump is that the pump head is connected to the main pump by a short section of rubber tubing. This lets you put the end of the pump on the ground after locking the head onto the tube valve. Then, you can use your body weight to do the pumping as with a floor pump, which is very nice. A short, plastic foot swings down so you can use your foot to keep the bottom end of the pump from slipping as you pump.

Product Features

  • Portable on-the-go bike pump with padded T-handle
  • Foldout footpad stabilizes the pump against the ground
  • Flexible air hose works with awkward or tight valve placements

Bicycle Pump – Topeak JoeBlow X.O.

The Topeak Joe Blow XO Floor Pump, in all honesty, looks awesome! Aside from the looks thought, tire inflation has never felt so good.

bicycle pump 13

This bicycle pump is made with highly polished aluminum, and features an oversized base mounted gauge, SmartHead ThreadLock technology and a pressure release button for hassle-free inflation. Topeak’s Joe Blow Pro X.O. is sleek, durable and it fills your tires with ease. It quickly inflates tires thanks to its all-aluminum construction and its SmartHead tightly grips both Presta and Schrader valves. The X.O. uses a long braided metal hose and an oversized, tubular handle that make every pumping job easy. And, you’ll also appreciate the large, easy-to-read gauge.

bicycle pump 14This pump is well build, strong and the best of all with good material. The gauge is as advertised, very easy to read, plus you have constant pressure reading upon pumping, and the mutliple nozzle is an art on it self. The whole pump is very light, but when it’s place on the floor, it is easy to handle and pumps volume in one single stroke, due to the long shaft.

Topeak, job well done with the design and production of this item.

Bicycle Pump – Lezyne Road Drive Pump

Lezyne Road Drive Pump is THE pump to get if you ride a road bike. This Lezyne high pressure bicycle hand pump is very light, quick to set up and delivers air efficiently for its small size.

bicycle pump 16

Like the majority of Lezyne products the Road Drive Pump is a high-quality bicycle pump, made entirely of aluminum for precise and lightweight construction. With it’s size of 283 mm for the large version and 216 mm for the medium version, Road Drive Pump is not really a mini pump, but it’s also to small for a frame pump, although it comes with it’s own alloy bottle-cage mounting bracket. This pump fits inside the seat post itself, and is held in place with some adhesive based hook and loop fastner (very easy to install).

bicycle pump 17

The flexible hose that connects the pump to the Schrader/Presta valve is reason enough to buy this pump. You will be amazed at how little effort you can get the tires to be rock hard. While this isn’t as speedy as CO2 inflator, you will prefer it since it’s reusable. The ABS switch is wonderful. ONE simple press removes the pressure from the pump and hose, allowing you to easily screw the hose off of the valve without worrying about either ripping the valve core out or losing any of your hard-earned air. The barrel, handle, piston, end caps and pump mount are all custom CNC machined. Both ends of the CNC-ed aluminium pump are protected by rubber caps to stop road gunk getting inside and the connecting hose screws securely inside the handle.

The pumping itself is not difficult. It’s almost as easy as a floor pump. You will get get a 700x23c tire up to 110psi in 150 strokes. 50 more will get you up to 120psi.

bicycle pump 18

If you’re going to frame-mount the pump, than chose the size Large- it’s still not that long. If you stuff your pump in a pocket then consider the shorter version. With 20% more inflation power than a typical bicycle pump, this Lezyne pump is the ultimate hand pump when weight and performance matter.

If you ride a road bike, and a pump is your primary means of inflation, get one of these!
