Zefal Profil Max FP30 Floor Pump long-term review

The pump has worked great, no issues with leaking for a while.

The pumps has long enough hose to pump the tyres even when the bike is in the repair stand, as long as you have the valve at the bottom.

the pump is long enough to not bee too awkward to use for me, I am 181cm. But I prefer even longer pump, and wider handle.

It was higher, and has wider handle than the Beto pump I used in the past, also bigger Pressure gauge.

But I will have to get something made of strong metal parts, with metal connectors, it has to be as tall or taller, with a long hose, but I might need a compressor.

Pros

  • The seal lasted a for several years, I bought the pump in 2014 or 2015 I think. But it defenitly did wear, but the wear made it less brutal to put the head on & off the valve.
  • Spares are available, like spare hose.

Cons

  • There is some play between the air chamber & the plastic base
  • The plastic base is is not covered so it can get messy, if you have spilled sealant or use it outdoors or just have a dirty floor.
  • The handle is also easy to get dirt and is tricky to clean.
  • Threaded plastic connector on the hose and on the body, eventually the hose will shoot off, also it would be easy to over tighten, but as it’s plastic with bad tolerances I can just pull the hose of and pop it on. awful, the threads has probably worn due to long term use, but I could also spin it endlessly, horrible, I also noticed the new hose could be popped in and out easier, it popped off the first time I tried it.
  • When the seals were new they were so tight it was hard brutal, painful to put it on or off.
  • The Guage cover sits very loosely. It is rateling.
  • I bought a replacement hose cus the hose I had got clogged up with sealant, but the new hose had plastic connectors too but even worse tolerances, it was very easy to spin it endlessly, or pop it on and off, when using the pump this meant the hose blew off. So I had to go back to the way too short Biketec /Beto pump.

Review: Topeak Mini Dual DXG Hand Pump

Pros:

  • less resistance and faster pumping than cheap pumps.
  • pressure Gauge
  • can be mounted under a bottle cage
  • a good size for a mini pump,i ride with it on every ride.

Cons:

  • more volume would be nice so pumping would go faster.
  • rubber seal wears fast(but I guess it will not wear out for years. unless you use it every single day
  • the locking lever snaps back in place, so keep your fingers away, or it can be painful.
  • because the rubber seal wears out so fast the pump slides up while you use it, so you have to take it off and on again.
  • the pressure Gage might be confusing for some.

  • because the rubber is soft it fast wearing a rubber, after about 10 times of use, I can see that very noticeable signs of wear on the rubber seal.
Topeak Mini Dual DXG - afther about 10 times or more of use

Topeak pump seal worn vs new _0229
Old seal used about 10 times vs new seal

Conclusion:

I was not satisfied with this pump, but it was a lot better than the super cheap pumps that take endless time to get up to just 20 psi.

I recommend getting a pump with larger volume/larger air chamber, double the size would do I think.

I did not find replacement rubber seals anywhere in Norway, but this is not Topeak’s fault, Norwegian stores usually are like this, some sell stuff but replacement parts are difficult to get, But I eventually found spares on SJS Cyles:

So I can’t really recommend it.

ambefales ikke !!! testet: Bike-Tec/Beto Cycling minipumpe Mini Double Head

det so mer bra

  • bil ventil og prestaventil støtte
  • spaken på pumpe hodet til å veste pumpa til ventilen er ikke hard å bruke
  • kan festes under flaskeholder.
  • vekten

negativ

  • lekasje av luft
  • pumpa har lufttrykkmåler
  • pris i forhold til funkjsonalitet og kvalitet
  • det tar lang tid å pumpe opp og du komemr til å kjenne det i musklene.

eneste forskjellen er logoen på pumpa
