Mechanic's Floor Pump
A floor pump is one of the best investments a rider can make to keep their bike ready for action. Experts agree that tire pressure, more than any fancy frame material, the latest suspension, or high-tech wheels, affects the ride quality of any bike. In addition to ride quality, tire pressure affects traction for cornering and stopping, rolling efficiency, power transfer, flat prevention, and overall safety.
A floor pump will make inflating your tires easier, quickly, and more accurate when compared to other means such as a small hand pump, compressor, or other inflating devices. Choosing the right model depends on how often you plan to use the pump, what inflation pressures you bike's tires require, the type of valve your tubes have and what features the pump has to make inflation easier and quicker.
Pedro's Prestige Floor Pump was designed with performance and value in mind. The Prestige Floor Pump shares many features with our lower priced Domestique, but improves with a few key features needed by the advanced user. The Prestige's features include high quality steel and plastic construction for durability, a dual head design with thumb-lock lever for easily switching between presta/schrader tube valve types, a top-mounted integrated pressure gauge for easily monitoring pressure during inflation, comfortable ergonomic dual-density plastic composite handle, and heavy duty composite base for stability. The Prestige is designed with a long stroke, narrow barrel design to quickly inflate tires, but with less effort, up to 160PSI (11 Bar) maximum pressure.
