Price, specs on paper
Annoying valve switch, presta leaks at high press.
I bought this pump last week on Decathlon Edinburgh, planning to use it in a road bike. Specs on paper were good: readable manometer, high pressure, dual valve. Trying to inflate my tyres became a chore, though.Meer
1) The pump comes configured for Schrader valves. This shouldn't be a problem, but the instructions are confusing, and the rubber ring was so tightly stuck that, after breaking a nail, I could only manage to reverse the ring using a scissor blade.
2) Once in "presta" mode, the cap is very fiddly. A colleague's cheap floor pump is much better.
3) Due to the above issue, I didn't trust the pressure reading.
After this experience, I went back to the store, the very same day, to get a refund, which I used to get the Airworx 10.0 pump. It may be twice the price, but so far it hasn't ended up in blood, pain and frustration.

Hello Miguel, Meer
Thank you for your detailed review on this product. I do agree that this pump can be quite fiddly if you need to change the inside of the valve over to presta from the original set up. This is so tight because if it isn't it will leak air, this however does provide the issues you faced. In store I always recommend the FP900. We use this in all the stores across the UK both in the build area and workshop.
Hope you have better luck with the Airworx 10.0.
