What they say: Call it mini, but we prefer to think of it as a Frame Pump sized to fit your pocket.
What we say: If you only want to buy one mini-pump in your life then the Impero must surely be on your shopping list. Exuding quality partly thanks to its finish and weight, the all-metal construction looks to cover every possible element well, although that obviously comes at a cost. The handle has a rounded end whilst the other, with its Presta-only valve, has a rubber grip that doubles up as a seal. 208 mm long our 80 strokes gave a considerable 40 PSI.
Quality from start to finish, Impero’s fast and efficient so should last an age.
