Hand Pumps


Mini pumps/hand pumps usually come in a variety of sizes, all designed to be portable and so are ideal to stick in your jersey pocket or onto your bike in case of a mid-ride puncture. While most are capable of inflating tyres to a reasonably high pressure (or at least enough to get you out of trouble), they are really only beneficial in emergencies or occasional use and usually you're left pumping longer than you would do with a track pump.

However, no matter how frustrating it’s vastly preferable to being stuck 50km from home with a flat tyre and no way of pumping it up so we would always recommend carrying one on a ride!
