Michelin’s digital double-barrel range-topper remains our favourite foot pump. Obviously that excellent digital display with good-sized white figures on a black background has a lot to do with it, but so does the near-70cm-long hose, compact screw-on valve coupling and the gauge’s excellent accuracy – just 0.5psi low in our tests. We also appreciate the thought that’s gone into storage between uses; the product locks together securely and easily, there are dedicated clips to hold on to all those easily lost accessories and to route the hose neatly.
