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.
Blackburn 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.
Blackburn 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.
