Weighing a very respectable 80g the resin construction is surprisingly hardy, resisting careless handling with only the smallest of scuffs. The T-handle is fairly comfortable, but achieving remotely rideable pressures is ponderous at best, requiring seven minutes and 122/153 strokes to inject 80psi into a flat 700X23 and 26X1.5 respectively: disastrous in a competitive context but infinitely preferable to a long walk home. The Nylon mounting bracket is utilitarian but effective, although I was slightly irked by the use of Phillips rather than Allen head screws.
Consuming nominal space in a rack bag, rucksack or pannier, this is an ideal contingency pump especially in situations where you're towing a tag-along or trailer with small wheels. It has proven a particularly useful companion for a 20inch wheeled folder and for seven quid represents pretty good value for money.
A basic but surprisingly effective mini pump for lower pressure tyres.

Make and model: Push Headrush HeadTurner mini pump
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?
The Headrush headturner mini pump is basically a lightweight mini pump aimed at a utility/commuter market, although in fairness, performance is markedly better than the giveaway frame-fit inflators that used to accompany new bikes.
Tell us some more about the technical aspects of the product?
Nylon construction with a head that rotates 360 degrees, tilting to accommodate awkward valve stems typically associated with small wheels. The T handle is surprisingly sturdy and offers much needed leverage when inflating to higher pressures.
Rate the product for quality of construction:
Rate the product for performance:
Surprisingly good given the sizing and price but took seven minutes continuous inflation to reach 80 psi
Rate the product for durability:
Stands up to accidental carelessness very well.
Rate the product for weight, if applicable:
Very low weight thanks to the resin construction.
Rate the product for comfort, if applicable:
More comfortable than some costing twice the price.
Rate the product for value:
What can I say- fantastic value giving change from £7!
Tell us how the product performed overall when used for its designed purpose
As an emergency pump it will certainly get you out of a jam so long as you're not in a desperate hurry or requiring higher pressures. However, it's one of the few designs I have found particularly effective on twenty inch and smaller wheels.
Tell us what you particularly liked about the product
Surprisingly robust construction
Tell us what you particularly disliked about the product
Nothing given the price.
