Giant doesn’t just make bicycles anymore. It’s now branching out into accessories, and has launched an impressive range of such items as grips, saddles, luggage, lights, computers and much more. A box of inflation devices turned up recently, here’s a look at them.
It was a big box that arrived from Giant, and it had to be. The Control Tower Pro (£69.99) is a mighty looking track pump, and is the top-rung pump from a range of five. It’s impressively sturdy in build with a huge hand-polished aluminium barrel, wide handle and secure base, which makes inflating tyres a breeze. Maximum pressure is 160psi (11bar), Presta and Shraeder valve types are catered for with an Auto Head and the base-mounted valve is easy to read.
For on the road tyre inflation duties, Giant’s Control Mini 2+ mini-pump (£12.99) may look small but actually features a telescoping barrel to decrease pumping time. A folding T-handle, aluminium construction, thumblock lever and in-line gauge make it a feature packed pump.
The final tyre inflation option from Giant is its Control Blast CO2 canister (£11.99) that, at just 16g, is the perfect option for emergencies when tyre is of the utmost importance. Replacement cartridge packs come in at £5.99 for 3 or £16.99 for 10.
