SKS have been making pumps for over 75 years in their factory in Germany so when they release a new pump you expect it to be pretty good.

The Spaero comes in at 134grams and is 215mm long, it has a twist lock to stop it opening in your pack and comes with a holder that can either bolt onto your frame or there are rubber retaining straps.

When the dreaded puncture comes then the Spaero feels solid in the hand, a pull out hose extends from the top. The head will connect to all valve types and is a screw on variety.

In use, the screw on valve connector gives a very solid connection, the pump itself is rigid and pumps far more air than its size would suggest.

Overall, the SKS Spaero is a top notch pump and is now a firm favourite.

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.
