Our Picks: How we picked the best bike pump

Find out how we selected and ranked the products.

1. Features: Most important purchase criteria for best bike pumps

1.1 Pressure Required

Depending on the type of bike you use, you might not always need a pressure pump offering high-pressure levels (measured in PSI) like most bike pumps need to generate pressure between 20 psi to 40 psi to suit the general pumping needs of various types of bicycles. A pump with high pressure basically offers some perks like volume output and gauge accuracy.

A pump with high pressure basically offers some perks like volume output and gauge accuracy.

1.2 Volume

The volume needed by a pump is largely determined by what kind of bicycle you choose. To explain the concept better, let us put it this way. A high volume pump will take lesser strokes to reach the desired pressure point.

1.3 Gauge Accuracy

It is also important that the bike pump features a gauge and it has fair accuracy. It should be easy to read and must be offering a reasonable pressure range to suit your needs. These gauges are said to be the most accurate in the middle of the range. There is also an option of a digital gauge if you are willing to go for a relatively expensive pump.

1.4 Valve Types and Pump Heads

The pump heads and valve types are also among the important considerations as there are a few pumps that prove to be suitable for different tyres, whereas there are pumps that have a more dedicated use case or that can fit one specific type of valve. Presta (racing style) and Schrader (car-style) valves are among the most commonly available types in the market.

Really talking about the heads, there could be a twin-valve head that could be a good fit in case of either of the two valves. There is also a “smart head” that can adjust to various valve sizes. There is also a thread-on style head that has to be changed and fliped based on what valve you want to use.

1.5 Size

It is always convenient and advisable to have a compact bike pump, however, if the pump is just for home use then any of the available sizes will do just fine. On the contrary, if you plan to take your bike pump in a car or store it while you are in transit, then a mini bike pump is what you should go for. However, the only limitation of a smaller size means limited air volume inside the pump.

However, the only limitation of a smaller size means limited air volume inside the pump.

1.6 Build Quality

The build quality of a pump directly varies in relation to the price of the bike pump. Cheaper options are also available which are made from plastic and won’t sustain for long. The cost of the pump actually rises based on how much metal does the pump contain as it's fairly adding to the durability of the pump.

1.7 Serviceability

Serviceability is an important factor because even if you go for a decently priced model or a high-end option bike pumps do leak and experience normal wear and tear over long term usage. Also, it does not make sense to buy a bike pump whose spare parts and related accessories are not readily available whenever required.

2. FAQ: Learn more about the details

2.1 How much PSI can a bike pump produce?

The pressure rating could be indicated by a certain range or maximum pressure. All the examples of range could be between 90- 120 PSI, and even lower to 35 to 60 PSI. The lower the number of the pressure range, the more traction and more comfortable would be to ride.

2.2 How much a bike tyre should be inflated?

Each type of tyre needs to be inflated at a different level. For instance, road tyres require 80 to 130 PSI, mountain tyres need 25 to 35 PSI and hybrid tyres call for 40 to 70 PSI.

2.3 Can I use a bike pump to inflate a basketball?

Most platforms available in the market have a very versatile use case as it can be alternatively used for bicycles, motorcycles and even cars in certain scenarios. However, this also depends on what is the maximum pressure value of the pump, and how much air volume can it sustain.

Here is the list of things for which you can use a bike pump:

  • Motorbikes and cycle’s tyre

  • Peddle bikes tyres and inflatable boats

  • Basketball

  • Footballs

  • Air beds

  • Cars (certain scenarios)

2.4 Why does the bike tyre go flat overnight?

A hole in the inner tube of the bike tyre could lead it to go flat. If the slow leaking happens for an hour or so, then the bike tyre has to be inflated and the inner tube may have to be replaced.

2.5 How do I know if my bike tyre has a hole in it?

To identify if there is a hole in the bike tyre, take a few drops of soapy water solution, and apply it to the tyre with your hand. Wherever there will be a hole you will see the soap bubbles popping up. You will also sense a mild outflow of air with your hand, and that's when you know that the tyre is damaged.

4. Fun Facts: Interesting facts, figures and things to know about the bike pump

4.1 It is believed that the bicycle pump was invented around the year 1887. This is almost around the same time when John Boyd Dunlop  developed the first pneumatic tyre in Scotland.

4.2 The first bicycle pump consisted of a cylinder with a metal rod in between, through which the air has to be forced into the bike tyre. Then the metal rod was pulled off again to pull new air in.

4.3 Electrical pumps in the modern era use the automated pumping mechanism. This mechanism is the same as used in traditional bike pumps.
