Still pumping out good times

Rating:
The Good:

lightweight, affordable, easy to use, no changing of parts required

The Bad:

oddly shaped and doesn't fit in my bottle cage

Overall Review:

While online shopping, this pump seemed like the best value for $$ spend and I also think that Crankbros is a pretty cool company with a distinct culture behind them but sadly I haven't had much of a chance to buy their stuff up until now. This is my go-to on trailpump now. It has taken a beating and still works just fine. I love how you don't have to change out any small parts to fill up a schraderor presta valve (most pumps require you to do this btw). I'm not sure if the gauge on it is calibrated correctly but I'm really glad that it has one on there period. This pump also has a setting on the bottom that allows you to Read More »

I'm not sure if the gauge on it is calibrated correctly but I'm really glad that it has one on there period. This pump also has a setting on the bottom that allows you to switch from high volume to high pressure when it gets harder to fill the tire, but I always leave it on the high volume setting to get the job done faster. You already have a bit of frustration when you flat, so why not take it out on your pump right?

The only complaint I have about this pump is that it is oddly shaped and it fits slightly weird in my hydration fanny pack but I would recommend it to anyone looking for a solid pack pump, not if you want to put it on your bike. The down tube on my bike was a bit thicker than most so it didn't fit which can turn-off off for people with certain bike sizes.

Decent Little Pump

Rating:
The Good:

low weight, compact, has a gauge, has dual modes for high volume vs high pressure, good warranty works on both Schrader and Presta valves

The Bad:

a bit finicky to attach and takes forever to pump up tire due to lack of volume.

Overall Review:

I have owned this pump for a few years, I have only used it maybe a dozen times between my own flats and my mates flats. the pump works, hands down and the gauge is very handy. I like how it can go between high volume pumping to high pressure. I also like how it can go between Presta to Schrader not that that option gets used much. I did end up having an issue with it after several years of owning it. I sent it back to Crank Brothers and even though the item was discontinued they took care of it. I still have this pump and will continue to use it until it until I have no other option. *note, not to be used with fat bike Read More »

compact but not practical

Rating:
The Good:

Compact, light, easy to use gauge

The Bad:

Not much air volume. Takes forever to pump high volume mountain bike tires.

Overall Review:

Although compact and beautifully made, the Power Pump Pro is more fashion than function. The lack of air volume requires a lot of effort to pump up high volume mountain bike tires. Look elsewhere if you are flat prone.
