Does what all pump heads should do!
The quality of this is brilliant and it works an absolute treat. I wish I had bought one years ago to convert my old pump into an amazing pump.

Jo Blow Upgrade
Nice long hose I can inflate tyre on workstand. Realy simple to use whole family can use it without having to explain a thning. Head fits brilliantly. Has given the old Joe Blow a second wind! Sorry bad joke.

My track pump was becoming a real pain to use, with the head often popping off the tyre valve as I tried to reach a decent pressure.
Resigned to buying a new track pump I came across this upgrade option on the Wiggle website.
Took minutes to install and works beautifully. The hose is almost twice as long as I had previously too.
Oh and much cheaper than a new track pump.

Fitted this to my Top Peak JoeBlow pump. Massive improvement over the standard head that comes with the pump. I had replaced the original head a number of times as they wear quickly and leak air or simply pop off the valve when pumping. Question is why is this an expensive upgrade and not the standard head supplied with the JoeBlow pump?

This product is great and works as it should do and i have no problems with it it looks stong and robust comes with several adaptors for different pumps. the only downside is i wish the £75 i paid for the original pump had an end as good as this one and last more than a year or two, top money but lost without it, debated just getting a new pump though due to the price.

transformed tired old pump into an excellent tool
Old Schwinn floor pump had problems sealing with stubby valves on deep tubeless rims.
Had the option of valve extenders (weight / fiddly), a new floor pump (old pump becomes landfill) or a floor pump renovation.
OK so it's not cheap but I now have an excellent floor pump that would have cost me 2x the cost of the renno.
The connection bits were perfect even though my pump was not listed in the instructions.

topeak smarthead upgrade kit
Having got fed up with my Specialised track pumps "double head"-one end presta the other shcraeder I purchased the topeak upgrade head.My main criticism is that the self tapping metal to plastic connection makes for a rather flimsy join with no opportunity to really tighten the joint.However the best connection would appear to go for the cutting and joining of the old and new rubber tubes using the metal connector and jubilee clip leaving the original tube still firmly attached to the original pump;with the added bonus of having nearly doubled the length of tubing(should you require a longer tube that is)

old pump new life

smarthead is really good high pressure easy to achieve.
Gave a new lease of life to my old pump

FItted perfectly - BBB Pump
Came with multiple attachments for any style of floor pump - mine is a BBB floot pump and the new fitting is great - easy to use and exactly as expected.

completely changed my old knackered track pump
I have an old Specialized track pump which was a real pain to get a good seal on the valve, leading to much swearing and wiggling of the wheel, value and pump.
After the simple installation of this new head, I get a perfect seal first time every time. What more can you ask for?

Easy upgrade to Joe Blow Sport 2
Straightforward upgrade to replace broken twinhead on Joe Blow Sport 2 pump. Tested on both Presta and Schrader valves. Bit expensive, but hopefully it is a "one off" purchase.

Smart head, not so smart!
This pump is fantastic for inflating the tyres on my road bike with presta valves, yet when I try and inflate my mountain bike tyres or the kids tyres with the schrader valves as soon as I lift the lever to lock it on, it pushes the valve out of the fitting and will not inflate.
25 August 2011
An exellent well engineered part fits well and great quality. The adapter works well on both types of valve.
And great service form Wiggle.

Easy to Install
I found this attachment so easy to put onto my old pump. I had my old dysfunctional pump working in about 10minutes or less. It came with multiple hose attachments which covers off most pumps.
Really good grip onto valve too.
10 August 2011
Just get it
This was purchased. 1- due to the original head on my Specialized air tool wearing out and not securing properly and 2: so to inflate disc wheel. This attached to my pump in about 5 minutes and works a treat on reassessed valves on disc and HED 3 wheels. It is secure and bullet proof.... if you have a disc get this
01 August 2011
Impressed but expensive for what it is
very nice valve head and all the bits to attach it to most pumps. I used mine to fit to my compressor to make fitting tubless easy as pie but am now considering a second one for my track-pump.
29 July 2011
Without doubt the best upgrade to the jow blow pump. works really well compared to the standard 2 headed arrangement
02 May 2011
How did I live without this addition to my pump. Simple to fit, high quality and fantastic performance.

I bought a lifeline track pump in June 2010 and the dual head started to leak out the unused head in January 2011. It was a case of, either send it back with the associated costs, or get a new head. I went for the Topeak upgrade kit. Right decision! I can now pump my prestas up to 140psi with no leakage. Haven't tried it on Schraders.

Versatile Pump Head Kit
Before ordering, I was worried that the kit wouldn't fit my existing pump. Not to worry, the kit came with 4 different adapters, each allowing a different way to attach the head to the pump. The lever is a solid piece of metal, and feels really solid to use.
24 February 2011
The best thing that happened to my old pump was failing and forcing me to buy the smarthead. Installation was easy and now works much better than ever.

Smarthead Upgrade well worth it
I've owned a Silca track pump for about 10 years. In all that time it's always been a pain to put air in my bikes' tyres because I was never able to get Silca's friction actuated Presta adapter to work. As a work-around I used to fit a Presta to Schrader adapter to the Prest valve and then screw the Schrader end of the Silca pump hose to the adapter. This led to quite a few valve stems being torn from tubes and not a little cursing and swearing.
The Topeak Smartjhead Upgrade has given me instant bliss. The no-text cartoon-type instructions were easy to follow and I had it fitted in about 15 minutes. Unfortunately none of the supplied threaded adapters would screw into the pump base so I had to snip the Silca tubing and fit the barbed adaptor and hose clamp instead.
The cam-locking action of the pump fits easily and securely to Presta valves and does not leak. This means pressure readings from the gauge at the foot of the pump barrel are giving their most accurate and reliable readings in years. Hooray!! It's made putting air in the tyres simple and straightforward.
When the head is released from the valve after the desired pressure has been reached the handle snaps back sharply into the Smarthead housing. It's not hard to keep your fingers clear.
Haven't tried the Smarthead on Schrader valves and don't really intend to unless a friend pops around on a bike with those valves fitted. Occasionally when fitting head to valve stem the head causes a bit of air to be released from the valve. It's not a bother when the cam-lock seals so well and the tyres can be inflated to the desired pressure so easily.
If you're having issues with the existing head of your track pump then the Topeak Smarthead Upgrade kit will send your blues away. Highly recommended and used in bike shop workshops all over Melbourne!

Breathed new life into the old pump
My old floor pump had a poor connection leaked air. It had never worked properly from new and needed a second pair of hands to hold it in position to inflate a tyre.
I purchased this product and fitted it within 10 minutes.
It works a treat. Attaches to the valve securely and no leaks Almost makes pumping the tyres a pleasure.
It has converted a cheap floor pump into a good quality one
Cut down on the swearing

Replacement Pump Head
I have had a Genuine Innovations floor pump for years now and the head was plastic and had worn so it took a lot of effort to get it to lock on and allow me to pump up my tires, without deflating them.
Didn't really want to pay $100+ AUD for a new pump with a metal head just at the moment, so thought I'd give the replacement kit a go, at a fraction of the cost including delivery.
It comes with a number of different connectors for different pumps,
but the default cut the tube and join the new one was the one I had to use.
Took me about 5 nervous minutes to decide to cut the hose in half with a knife and another 5 minutes to attach the new head and pump up first tire.
My pump is now a pleasure to use again, head is even easier than the original was. Have only used it 3-4 time so far and only to 115 PSI as my tires won't take much more, but so far it has had no issues at all. And as a added bonus depending on where you cut your original pump tube, the new pump will end up with extra length as well.

So Simple to Fit
I read the instructions and found that nearly every scenario ha been covered. All I had to deduce was which one was the best for my pump. All the fittings were there and in 10 minutes I had resurected a dead pump.

Topeak Smarthead Upgrade Kit
The smarthead provides a secure and accurate attachment for inflating tyres both bike and car. Haven't had any problems with the attachment blowing off and provides an immediate and accurate tyre pressure read out. The only thing was that the instructions depict an attachment that replaces the standard factory Topeak connection it came with. Given my trepidation in cutting hoses this caused a little angst to start with but overall it seems a great upgrade so far.
18 October 2010
Very good, if a tad expensive.
Why did the original head break in the first place?
14 October 2010
I purchased it to refurbish a Joe Blow Sport. Loads of adapters so you could virtualy any pump. No air leakage or dificulty in displacing a presta valve stem.

Additional information about Flare could not be loaded.
The SmartHead Upgrade Kit is supplied with three threaded connectors: M12 x 1.0mm, M8 x 1.0mm and M8 x 0.75mm. SmartHead hose then screws on to fitted connector.
The Kit also contains what is labelled an HCI Hose Connector. This is used if the threaded adaptors aren't suitable for your track pump. With this one, snip the existing pump hose squeeze the barbed end of the HCL Connector into the lumen of the hose and secured with a hose clamp. SmartHead hose then screws into HCL Connector. (I used this with my old Silca track pump.)
The fifth and final adaptor in the kit is suitable for Topeak JoeBlow Sport floor pumps.
I don’t know it despite I’m using it. You can fit it to your inflator by using items including this kit. In my case, I cut inflator’s hose and then connected inflator’s hose to it by using a connecter including this kit.
Additional information about DoctorG could not be loaded.
I'm almost certain it will as it comes with several different connector fittings, one of which is an in-line coupling which just connects your old pump tube to the Topeak one. i.e. juts cut off your old tube and connect the Topeak version. This is what I did and it couldn't be simpler.
