    Strengths:    None.

    Weaknesses:    Air blows right trough.

    Bottom Line:   
    I had a flat in a race. When I screwed in the co2 cartridge, the air went through with a bang even though the orange valve knob was fully closed. Now I use a BBB air gun that screws on to the valve of the inner tube. I screw it on to the tube and then attach the cartridge. If it should blow through, the air goes in the tube. With the BBB air gun the cartridge has never released its spunk prematurely in my experience.

    Strengths:    None

    Weaknesses:    Bulky, low quality, poor metering

    Bottom Line:   
    I really don't like this pump at all. It's low quality (plastic knob, the nozzle plug is a joke). When you unscrew the knob out to allow for maximum inflation the co2 starts leaking out. When you want to stop pumping you must screw it down to keep the co2 from leaking. It is awkward to create a positive seal with the Presta valve, often leaking air while engaging/disengaging it. It's large for a co2 pump. I thought this would be a "gourmet" co2 pump, but it's just unecessarily complex, large, low quality, and functionally inferior to cheaper pumps. If you want one, email me and I'll sell you my barely used one for cheap. I do highly recommend the Innovations Air Chuck co2 pump (half the size, cheaper, simpler, nicer quality and works far better).

    Strengths:    It's small, it's cheap and it works.

    Weaknesses:    Non so far. Well the plastic holder is a bit flimsy.

    Bottom Line:   
    It really delivers the air blast that is necessary, to pump tubeless tires. A 2.1 inch tire can be reasonably inflated with one cartridge (but it's always a good idea to have a spare with you). It's dirtproof, meaning it still works after having it exposed to severe riding conditions for several month. The adjustable valve let's you really controll how much air you use for the moment.
    Bottom line: For all those with tubeless tires a must.
