Oxford Track Pump with gauge £29.99
Tested by Tony Hoare
Time tested: One year
What’s good? This pump has been MCN office equipment for the past year and whenever someone on our team has to sort out their tyres, this gets the gig. It has so far proven more durable than footpumps, which have various areas that end up damaged (like broken air hoses or collapsing supports) and it also gets a good pressure into tyres very quickly. It also has a wider base than a footpump so it sits more steadily on the ground. The pressure gauge on ours is pretty accurate, but it’s always best to check with a dedicated gauge.
What’s not? The price is quite high for a pump, but so is the quality – and it can inflate to 120psi so it’s suitable for all bicycles too.
