About Velowurks Prime Floor Pump
The Velowürks Prime Floor Pump is a fusion of Bauhaus styling and classic cycling references, wrapped into a high quality floor pump that is built for the long run.
With aluminum and steel construction, all pressure facing components are threaded together for a secure fit. A tall air chamber pushes more volume without straining your back and has a durable anodized finish both inside and out. An ergonomic two piece handle drives an oversized plunger shaft that is polished with a tough anodized finish and runs through a bushing mounted in the top head cap to ensure smooth operation and longevity. The replaceable rubber plunger gasket is manufactured from tough, heavy industry grade HNBR rubber to ensure a long service life.
Rated to 250psi, the Prime features a large, easy to read gauge with a responsive movement for accurate pressure reading, includes a rotating pressure index reference point, and is mounted into a stable, low center of mass, tip resistant, triangulated base with rubber feet. The distinctive base legs are plated steel and pay homage to the Bauhaus school of design of the 1920’s, that taught the theory of form over function.
A cast dual head with an integrated investment cast quick release lever insures easy and secure attachment providing compatibility for both Schrader and Presta valves. The built in pressure release valve makes it easy to fine tune air pressure. The extra long high pressure hose with braided Velowürks red cover makes it easy to reach valve stems on bikes that are in work stands, bike racks or other hard to reach applications. Hose and head are managed neatly when not in use by a hose keeper hook on the handle and a retainer clip by the base.
