Bontrager's TLR Flash Charger Floor Pump - Review | Pinkbike

Bontrager's TLR Flash Charger floor pump is actually two different tools in one. It's a floor pump, obviously, but it also has a secondary, larger cylinder that stores a charge of air pressure until you're ready to release it all at once, very much like a compressor does. The idea is that this flood of air will seat a tubeless tire much easier than you pumping like a madman in order to get the tire's bead to seal against the rim walls, even if you've employed helpful tricks like soaping up the tire and rim or removing the valve core so allow air to enter faster. The TLR Flash Charger sports an aluminum barrel combined with a plastic base and secondary tube, and the high-pressure gauge is mounted at the top of the body so it's easy to read. An 'Auto-Select' head does both presta and schrader valves without asking you to switch any tiny bits around, and the hose is long enough to reach a bike that's still up in a work stand. MSRP $119.99 USD. www.bontrager.com
