Floor Pumps are the largest bicycle pumps that you can buy. They are designed to be kept at home and used to quickly inflate tyres to a high pressure. Because they are not required to be portable, they can have a larger volume and use more robust heavier materials.
The higher volume of Floor Pumps allows for quicker inflation of all types of tyres; speeding up your pre-ride preparations. Floor Pumps also often have pressure gauges to let you know when you have reached the required pressure for your tyres.
High end Floor Pumps tend to have an all-metal construction, with nice touches such as wooden handles. These features both look nice and add to the length of the pump’s life. There are also budget options available. It is worth noting that some pumps have a larger volume, these are particularly suited to larger volume mountain bike tyres, but do not tend to be able to reach such high pressures. Check the maximum pressure of the pump, and see if it meets your demands.
Floor - or track - pumps make it much easier to inflate tyres, especially if you need a high pressure or have large capacity MTB tyres. Most have an accurate pressure gauge so you can make sure your tyres are inflated correctly, reducing rolling resistance and punctures. Leave the mini pump for emergencies!
