Weighing half as much as the AirRevolution, the Original MiniFootPump is our choice for bicycle tires, soccer balls, and other home uses.Shortcuts to the good stuff:
Why use a foot pump instead of an electric pump?
- No electrical cord = faster, easier setup and use
- Our foot pump is lighter and smaller than most compact 12-volt electrical pumps
- Foot pumps have fewer moving parts so there's less that can wear out or malfunction
The MiniFootPump has a black nylon base with rubber footing which holds an aluminum cylinder construction, with a standard o-ring equipped piston (stabilizing bypass design).
Looking for a heavier duty, faster foot pump for powersports applications or mountain bike air suspensions? Check out the AirRevolution MiniFootPump!
- 0 - 140 PSI gauge
- Foot stand locks pump into compressed position, ensuring the smallest footprint possible - only 5.75 tall x 3.5 wide x 2-5/8 deep!
- Only 9 oz in weight!
In our tests, it took Matt about two minutes to pump up a motorcycle tire to 30-36 PSI from 0 PSI (e.g., a flat tire you've just repaired).
Available options: (sold separately)
- 0 - 70 PSI replacement gauge (ideal for powersports use)
- lossless valve replacement hose (ideal for use with motorcycles with disc brakes)
- Original MiniFootPump
- Nylon storage bag with 3 velcro straps (allows attachment to most bicycle frames)
- 3 additional adapters, including a steel needle valve for shocks and balls, a brass Presta adapter and a plastic needle valve for air mattresses
Pump Comparison - electric vs. foot-powered
We wanted to show just how awesome our MiniFootPumps are, so we decided to run a comparison between the Original MiniFootPump, the AirRevolution, the 12V Slime Power Sports Tire Inflator and the 12V Cycle Pump.
Pulling the results of the "12 V Mini Pumps Battle!" from the November 2006 issue of Motorcycle Consumer News, we tested the performance of our pumps on a similar rear tire. We used the 17" rear tire of a Triumph Tiger 1050 - they used the 17" rear tire on a Buell Ulysses. Both bikes use the same tire size and shape (180/55 ZR17).
We tested the inflation times to 30 PSI, 36 PSI and 44 PSI. The results? (Note: some times are missing because the MCN article did not record times greater than 5 minutes)
*Slime pump inflation time to 30psi based on linear interpolation between the pressures measured at 3 minutes (26.7psi) and 5 minutes (31.8psi).
Most 17" front sportbike tires or 19" front dual-sport tires can be inflated in about 60% less time than a 17" rear sportbike or dual-sport tire, as a front tire's volume is about 60% lower. To prove the point, we tested front tire inflation speeds on the Avon 120/60-ZR17 front tire on our shop's Suzuki SV650. MCN did not test front tires, we don't have data for our competitor's pumps.
