With it’s polished aluminum barrel and silver braded hose the BBB Air Blaster looks as much like a track pump as it does a piece of art. The large pressure gauge at the base of the pump adds to the feeling of luxury, with styling reminiscent of a sports car from a bygone era. Luckily this isn’t a case of style over substance, as the Air Blaster performs as well as it looks. The high volume air barrel and intelligent valve head will have your tyres pumped up in no time. We especially liked the easy to read gauge and while it wasn’t the fastest pump it certainly wasn’t a slouch!

Verdict

Don’t let the marginally slower inflation time put you off, add a touch of class to your home workshop with the BBB Air Blaster.

His first mountain bike was a Trek 820, which he bought in 1990. It didn’t take him long to earn himself a trip to the hospital on it, and he’s never looked back since. These days he’s keeping it rubber side down, riding locally and overseas as much as possible.
