The Velowürks® Prime floor pump with gauge 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. The plunger
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 and includes a
rotating pressure index reference point. The gauge assembly is mounted
into a stable, tip resistant low center of mass, 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.
