The strapline for the Bontrager TLR Flash Charger pump says “Game-changer”. A game-changing floor pump? We’re enthused and wary of hyperbole in equal measure here at RCUK, so let’s see.
The claim stems from the fact the Flash Charger negates the potential need to use an air compressor when installing a tubeless setup. Instead, you can preload an air chamber in order to instantly inflate tubeless tyres, so they seat more cleanly and efficiently. In practice it’s efficient and simple to use – just the ticket.
