The “Joeblow” series of track pumps from Topeak have been a long established favorite in the bicycle pump market, now with an added ‘charge’ mode to help make fitting tubeless systems a breeze, the “Joeblow” looks set to become even more popular.
With the introduction of tubeless tires and their subsequent popularity we have been waiting for a solution to the problematic installation. For many people an electric compressor is not a viable option because of price and their lack of portability, this pump would address these issues and make tubeless systems more practical and appealing to a wider audience.
The ‘Joeblow’ boasts many nice features including a stable base, easy to read gauge, and an air release button which makes achieving your desired tire pressures easy. Aesthetically we think the pump looks smart and of high quality which is what we’ve learned to expect from Topeak.
The charge function is both easy and efficient, the knob around the gauge is turned to ‘charge’ mode before the user can pump 1 litre of air into the barrel. It is then released into the tyre by turning the knob back to inflate mode.
The new ‘Booster’ by Topeak looks like another great addition to their lineup and we look forward to getting our hands on it in the future to test out that ‘charge’ function. Release dates and pricing are yet to be confirmed but we’ll keep you informed here or on ENDURO.
