It is essential to pump your bike tires with air to maintain stability and performance. You can pump bike’s tires to maximum capacity at the garage and at the bike shop.
But what happens if you need pumping on the road?
Sometimes tires need emergency inflation before you move forward.
Well, you can always use a portable pumper.
Through my experience with pumpers, I’d suggest Topeak Road Morph G Bike Pump with Gauge to ensure your tires are well inflated whenever they need air. Some features and benefit make it one of my favorites in a portable pump genre.
I’ll be going over few of them in my review.
The Design is Unique
Manufacturers have designed this pump uniquely. Not to mention it is portable and has a padded plastic handle for comfort. The barrel is made of Butted aluminum, which makes it lightweight and perfect for portability.
The mountain bucket is what I like. It sticks perfectly with my bike, and I can carry the pump easily to wherever I go.
The hose is flexible. You can expand it when pumping air. Furthermore, the footpad can be expanded and folded to provide easier pumping experience.
T-Handle, Barrel and Gauge Work well in Tandem
The T-Handle is cushioned for Road Morph G Pump. While pumping, your hands will not feel sore. I like the barrel. It is big and well-made. It is longer than most pumps. So, you require less pressure for pumping.
One little blemish is the gauge. It works well, but it doesn’t give you proper readings. However, from my experience, I can tell that it reaches 100psi easily. All in all, it is a satisfying experience.
Flexible Hose Makes Pumping Easy
Bikers often find themselves in a fix when the pumping valve of the tire is too thin or too wide. But Topeak Road Morph G has an adapting hose. Whether the valve is too tight or little loose, the hose fits in nicely for you to pump air inside. You won’t have to pump your heart out. Just normal strength and motion will do. If stem damage of valve is your concern, this hose will be a perfect way of countering it.
Footpad is the Signature Attraction
Topeak Road Morph G Bike Pump takes pride in an innovative footpad.
This foot pad contributes to stabilize the pump against the ground. The pump head has a way to connect with a tube of rubber. Just attach the tube to the head, and you’ll be able to use this as a floor pump. Thanks to this, I can pump steadily without losing my grip using my body weight.
Other pumps stabilize themselves depending upon the hand positions. Here, your hands are not stressed, and you can have a pumping motion which is efficient.
Thanks to the movement, Topeak Road Morph G Bike Pump isn’t clunky like the most.
- Great design attracts at first glance.
- The aluminum barrel makes the pump lighter than most.
- The pump has a comfortable handlebar.
- The pump head at the end of the hose is versatile. It works equally well for tight or loose valves.
- The footpad stabilizes the pump to the ground and turns it to floor pump.
- You won’t need to put a lot of effort to pump air in.
- There is no manual for the first timers inside the box.
- The gauge isn’t that accurate.
Topeak Road Morph G Bike Pump is one of a kind when you take the footpad into consideration. But the great build of the pump and lightweight makes it my favorite.
While pumping air, you will not feel drained off energy. The device is sleek in design and considering how low the price is, it is a deal breaker for me.
