As a starting point, the Bontrager Air Support will work for mountain and hybrid bikes, but not the higher pressures of road bikes.
For road bikes, you’ll need one of the specific narrow-barrelled, high pressure pumps – Bontrager Air Support HP or Air Support HP Pro, or Lezyne Pressure Drive or Road Drive. For mountain bikes, with larger volume tyres, a high volume pump will make the job much easier – the Bontrager Air Support HV or Lezyne Alloy Drive.
The Lezyne pumps all come with a flexible hose rather than a snap-on head, making them much easier to use and a staff favourite. In particular the Road Drive for road use, with the ultra-thin barrel making the ease of operation at high pressure worth the extra investment.
Finally, the slightly bigger Bontrager Mini Charger and Lezyne Micro Floor Drive make a great option for ease of ease if you’ve got the space in your backpack or panniers to carry them.
Unconditional Bontrager Guarantee - all Bontrager pumps come with a 30-day trial period, if you don’t like it, return it for a no-quibble refund.
