Crank Brothers Power Pump Pro Pump

Crank Brothers Power Pump Pro Alloy is a high pressure pump that is a must on the road or trail. Small enough to put in a bag, but powerful enough to get all the pressure needed.

Strength:

Hard to break it properly with hands, needs a hammer to get the job done properly.

Weakness:

Does not pump tires to ride-able pressure

Worked for okish six to 12 months. Seals but the instructions on how to set low pressure versus high pressure leave a lot to be desired for and arrows pointing in opposite directions. Tried both modes at the end to get tyre from 70% to 90%, no avail gave up. Before this attempt I managed to get tires to about 90% full.. decided I had enough of this pump..I wanted a leg workout not am arm workout.

Design.

Weakness:

Everything but design.

Thanks god I stole this piece of crap in my local store.It doesn't worth any single cent of its crazy high price.It literally fell apart after the first try.After 250 strokes i just reached 30 PSI and yes, I took my time watching the directios video guide in the cra(p)nk brothers site.Believe me, don't buy this pump, is the worst waste of money you can do, and even if you do like me and steal it you are wasting your time.

Strength:

Small and lightweight.

Weakness:

Bulkier than expected. Not sure how you can get it up to 115 PSI. Surely you don't have to get up that high.

Not sure why you all are having problems. Push it in and twist to lock and it hangs there on its own. There's a handy Hi-volume/ High-pressure knob at the handles end and I could pump up road tires to about 80 PSI.

grnslo   Weekend Warrior [Sep 06, 2010]
Strength:

light, has gauge (that does not really work)

Weakness:

actually filling your tire with air

A complete waste of money. This thing will not inflate more than 20 psi, and will wear you out in the process

Strength:

Small, Light weight, Compact, Psi gauge

Weakness:

none

I'm surprised to see such bad reviews for this pump. Mine works perfectly seals great and the gauge works as well. I used this at home when I first received it to test it out and have fixed two flats in the bush with this pump now with no complaints.

Some people complaining about low air volume as a weakness but it's a compact lightweight pump... It's not as efficient as a larger pump obviously, but from my experience this pump performs great and does exactly what it was designed to do perfectly.

Strength:

Looks good, feels sturdy, compact.

Weakness:

Very difficult to get it to seal on valves, takes ages to inflate tyre - thats providing you succeed in getting it to work.

Do not even think about buying this pump unless you don't mind being stranded.

cornonthecobra   Weekend Warrior [Jul 23, 2009]
Strength:

Good workout. Some air comes out. Compact. Looks good - as with most Crank Bros stuff IMHO.

Weakness:

Everything else. I can get to 40PSI when the guage is working. The guage only reads when pumping presta valves on mine. Takes forever to fill anything, reverted to my $10 zefal pump.

As I'm slowly finding out, the lower end of Crank Bros' product range (i.e. not $100 pedals and adjustable seatposts) is of very low quality. Style over substance (just like their lower-end rusty pedals with awful bearings).

Similar Products Used: Various $5 - $10 pumps.
