Topeak Joe Blow XO Floor Pump

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 13This 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.

This bike 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.

Topeak’s JoeBlow Pro Floor Pump

Topeak’s JoeBlow Pro Floor Pump offers outstanding performance and super durability. It never fails and fits both Schrader and Presta valve stems. Has a large, easy to read dial gauge and a bleed-valve to get your pressure exact. SmartHead is awesome – no more stupid adapters for presta valves (which contributed to leaks while inflating with other pumps).

bicycle pump 41This bike pump features a top-mounted gauge with a pressure release button for perfect inflation. A padded ergonomic elastomer handle adds ease and comfort to your task. Smarthead technology means you never have to swap parts, as the head knows whether you have a Presta or Schrader valve. This pump includes ball and air bladder needles.

  • the pressure gauge is up high on the pump stem, so it’s that much easier to see
  • this floor bicycle pump has great features like a very accurate pressure gauge, so you know when to quit pumping, ability to pump up volleyballs and the like, easy to push handle even when pumping above 100 psi, hose is long enough to reach the valve stem regardless of position of the bike tire, nice handle lock for storage and ability to release air if you pump too much
  • it’s almost effortless, it’s heavy, it’s chrome, it’s solid
  • totally built to last

Topeak Joe Blow Sport II Floor Pump

Topeak Joe Blow Sport II Floor Pump is a REAL bicycle pump.

bicycle pump 32This floor bike pump has a full capacity of 160 psi, can be used on both Schrader and Presta valves. The adjustable pointer makes it easy to see how much more pressure is required. The filling head is designed so that you can disengage it with only one hand. Grab it like a pistol grip, then pull it away from the valve as your thumb moves the lever to the center.

Topeak Joe Blow Sport II Floor Pump is very sturdy steel (even the base) and the gauge is pretty accurate and the double ended connection head (each end for Schrader and Presta) makes connection quick. To connect the head to the valve, you have to hold your finger tightly over the opposite open side of the head or else while you are pressing down to seat the head on the valve, the pressurized air already in the tire will leak out the other end of the connection head, up until the valve is finally locked onto the valve with the locking arm. The locking arm closes the entire valve pathway around just the valve you want to press air into.

topeak-sport-ii-floor-pumpThe pump construction looks to be fairly durable. The metal base stand is thin stamped metal, but the pump is very easy to use. A few quick pumps is all that you need to inflate the tires. There’s no noisy compressor to run, and it doesn’t require electricity or energy other than human strength, which is also great for the environment.

Blackburn AirTower 2 Bicycle Pump

The Blackburn Air Tower 2 is one of the best bicycle pumps… it is very similar to the AirTower 1 but has some structural upgrades.

bicycle pump 29This bike pump has a new oversized T-handle, that provides a comfortable grip, and features storage drawers at both ends for patch kits, tire levers and included ball needle adapters.

bicycle pump 30Blackburn AirTower 2 has a stamped steel based that has been welded to the barrel. Wider and longer than the AirTower 1 it provides a wobble-free platform for pumping. Still the biggest feature of the AirTower 2 is all-new AnyValve Head that automatically detects between Presta and Schrader valves. Blackburn also addresses the fact that occasionally those valves can be slippery and placed a “overdrive” lock mode to ensure that the valve head stays on the valve. The gauge of the AirTower 2 is a new diaphragm style which is more resistant to damage but still extremely accurate. The base of this floor pump was designed in Blackburns state-of-the-art test lab. It is constructed from a glass-reinforced nylon fiber and is actually stiffer than many metal bases.

bicycle pump 31Blackburn AirTower 2  is easy to use on both Schrader and Presta valves with no problem and no air leakage. The gauge is quite easy to read and there is a movable marker that one can set to the required pressure. Blackburn AirTower 2 Bicycle Pump is definitely worth the price even if not discounted. A good, general floor bicycle pump to keep at the home garage or cottage.

• Steel barrel and welded steel base for maximum stiffness and stability
