The EnforceAir Pro Road bike pump from Axiom is a long, miniature pump that doubles as a floor pump when in use.
In its stored position (shown below) the EnforceAir Pro Road measures approximately 13 inches (33.5 cm) long and has a weight of 5.8 ounces (166 grams).
If you were simply to look at the photo of the bicycle pump below, you would think that this bike pump is no different than any of the other mini-bike pumps you’ve seen in the marketplace. But the Axiom EnforceAir Pro Road is unique in that it is just one pump in a line of pumps from the Axiom brand that come in a miniature size, but performs like that of a full-size floor pump.
When you are riding your bike, you can secure the EnforceAir Pro Road to the frame of your bicycle with the included mounting bracket. But when you need to actually use the pump to push more air into your tires, simply remove the pump from your bicycle… secure the reversible valve (which works with both Presta and Schrader) to your tube… unlatch the small steel footplate and place your foot on top of it… turn the handle to its perpendicular position… and start pumping! (The photos below show the EnforceAir Pro Road in use.)
The EnforceAir Pro Road has a reversible valve with a nickle-plated alloy cap that fits both Presta and Schrader valves.
The pump also comes with a reinforced fold out steel footplate, strong enough that it won’t break under the weight of your body.
The dual-density T-handle provides you with a quality grip and enough leverage to make inflating your tires a real breeze.
While the amount of force exerted by the EnforceAir Pro Road is not as high as what you would expect to see in traditional floor pumps, the ease of use (when compared to most traditional frame-mounted bike pumps) is superior. The pump is a joy to operate and is powerful enough that it can inflate a tire up to a maximum of 200 PSI.
In the end, the best part about this pump is that it’s lightweight, easy to use, and doesn’t require you to bend over much or get your hands all dirty when working to inflate your tire. Plus, the price of the pump is just about perfect. As of this writing, the price for the EnforceAir Pro Road is $32 Canadian Dollars (or about $31 USD).
The only disadvantages I can see about this pump is that because it is made almost entirely out of plastic and because it has so many moving parts, I worry about the long-term durability of the product.
After using this pump myself for nearly three months now, I feel confident enough to recommend the EnforceAir Pro Road bike pump from Axiom, but I think you should treat this little pump with caution – as I’m not sure how many bumps and falls it can take before it begins to lose its power.
My Overall Rating: 8 out of 10
