Bicycle Frame Pumps
for Road Bikes
at Yellow Jersey

The overwhelmingly best and dominant road pump design since 1974 is the Zefal HPX.
Well, in 1974 it was still called Zéfal HP but it was largely the same.
new hose-in-handle pump below!

Why do we like these so? It's hard to stop, the list is so long! Here it is:

the one

Compared to our well loved but tempermental Silcas of the era, it was a big breakthrough.
Zefal HP Frame Pump

  • Seamless all aluminum body
  • Seamless is nice.
  • These are also skinny!
  • Right. Skinny = easy stroke at high pressure
  • leak-proof end seal
  • easily replaced metal head
  • all-metal head
  • no plastic
  • check valve inside the retaining screw
  • Yes a steel retaining screw
  • no plastic
  • big easy to turn metal cover plate
  • it isn't plastic
  • nylon faces on head and handle
  • good place for nylon
  • beefy tight seals
  • express head designsimple

    And that was in 1974! The first model was an express type which means you simply push it over a presta valve. Soon Zefal had improved it with a clever chromed aluminum locking lever system. The inner sleeve has a positive O-ring seal and so just a light flip of the lever locks the seal washer tightly to your valve. With that change, Zefal also made a Schrader valve optional washer kit available. By then, the pump had lost its distinctivey Gallic red-white-blue handgrip on a shiny barrel for a simple natural matté aluminum finish with black grip.Continual improvements brought us to the current design

      Later Zefal HPX improvements
    • reversible Schrader-Presta design fits all valves
    • Right, no need to carry extra pieces
    • field-strips with no tools
    • frame-shaped handle obviates dreaded pump clips
    • yet still fits classic umbrella or peg clips if you are so inclined
    • replaceable nylon end "wings" save your finish
    • three sizes fit darn near all bikes
    • lockout in handle pumps easier

    Although once available in colors, the current model is black only. A simple twist of the handle locks out the spring ( What spring? The one that keeps it from falling off your bike.) So? Locking out the handle spring means you don't push against that spring while pumping. Much easier- try it!. This photo shows the Zefal HPX fitted in a frame. They go along top tubes or seat tubes. You'll see them along tandem "boob" tubes. Some riders tuck them between rear frame end and seat cluster. Experiment!

    The silver pump in the top photo is Topeak's Road Master Blaster. It's the same price and pumps equally well. Zefal spare parts for classic model are no longer available . Topeaks work and some riders don't care for black. Choice is good.

    yes, the one
    Pump clips hold moisture againast your bike's finish. No more clips!
