Time used: Over 25 flat tyres / tyre changes
The Spaero pump is a small robust pump that takes very little space when packing. There is no problem at all to inflate a flat tyre to full pressure (2,8 bar on rear tyre) after a puncture. The only downside with the small size of the pump is its volume, and it takes quite a few strokes to inflate a 150/70 R17 tyre.
It also has a nice feature with a flexible pull-out hose which minimise the mechanical pressure and the risk to snap the valve when inflating a tyre.
I can highly recommend this mini pump as long as you are up for a bit of workout while inflating your tyre.
Pros & Cons
- Very small (length 215 mm and weight 160 g)
- Max pressure: 5 bar / 73 PSI
- Flexible pull-out hose which minimise the the risk to snap the valve
- Takes many strokes to inflate a tyre due to the pump volume
