Meet the High-Performance Pump Head
Bike Fixation has just launched the new High-Performance Pump Head (HPPH) for use on all our manual and electric air pumps, and Bicycle Repair Stations.
From concept to production, the HPPH has been a 5 -year project that we are now pleased to share with our customers. With an in-house working title of “Air Chuck Norris,” (not chosen for obvious reasons; no one wants to tread on that guy’s intellectual property) the HPPH has been shipping on all new production orders since February 5, and, offers massive improvements over the original “stock” air chuck.
All-metal construction features an elongated ergonomic aluminum lever, and clearly embossed usage instructions on the side allow for intuitive, simple engagement. The twin head-compatible design utilizes industrial grade internals, works with Presta, Schrader (including a weapons grade alloy Schrader pin), and Dunlop valves, and effectively doubles valve seal life compared to universal single head designs. If service in the field does become necessary, the secured, removable front plate allows for quick seal changes as required. Replacement seal kits are offered, and a security bit is sold separately for this purpose, preventing any unwanted tampering with the HPPH.
The HPPH features an integrated and serviceable swivel, eliminating the potential of a swivel failure and requiring a hose replacement. While the HPPH is compatible with existing pump hoses, the recommended upgrade is to replace both with an offered complete hose assembly, HPPH pre-installed.
