A large, easy to read analogue gauge positioned twenty centimetres from the ground is very accurate and means there’s no excuse for over inflation. The 'clever-head' accommodates presta or Schrader valves, eliminating the need to strip and exchange the head’s internals when moving between the two, which is superb functionality at this price.
The hose could’ve been longer and in my experience valve heads of this kind eventually give up the ghost after a year or so’s continual service. However, spares are available to rebuild the head and they cost a princely £1.91, although Edinburgh bicycle advise they would obviously look after customers should the hose or other components prove faulty.
With the exception of shop-use which would be a bit too much to ask of a £15 pump, this Air Track Sport would suit novices and keepers of two-wheeled harems alike. It will even inflate car tyres, repaying its meagre investment ten times over in tyre/tube life before coming even remotely close to retirement.
Astonishingly well made given the price – every home workshop should have one.

Tell us what the product is for, and who it's aimed at. What do the manufacturers say about it? How does that compare to your own feelings about it?
As its name suggests, it is a keenly priced workshop pump for the home enthusiast on a budget. To use an overworked phrase, it does exactly what it says on the tin.
Tell us some more about the techincal aspects of the product?
Key to the design is a 51cm steel barrel that will resist most accidental knocks and scrapes whilst supposedly delivering greater pressure per stroke than others in its class. The ergonomic handle provides comfort, a large-easy to read gauge is positioned quite high on the barrel and the clever head morphs to accomodate either presta or Schrader valves
Rate the product for quality of construction:
Rate the product for performance:
Surprisingly rapid inflation given the relatively modest barrel
Rate the product for durability:
Not designed for workshop use but should last. The most vulnerable area would be the head and Edinburgh Bicycle offers a rebuild kit for a very modest sum. Nylon base feels more durable than some double the price.
Rate the product for weight, if applicable:
Reassuringly solid (1,247g)

Tell us how the product performed overall when used for its designed purpose
The pump has a suprisingly solid feel and rapid inflation time, helped in no small part by the barrel's rigidity and the Clever valve allowing hassle free inflation of both valve types- great on a fleet of bikes.
