Convenient and compact, the Blackburn Airstik SL Pump is the perfect pump to grab and go for any bike ride. Despite its compact 6-inch size, it is capable of pushing air quickly and with enough force to achieve ridiculously high PSI for the most elite road cyclists. One of the gripe we hear the most often regarding new mini pumps is their lack of ability to be easily mounted and tucked away on our bike frame. Blackburn solves this problem with the Airstik SL by including a bottle cage mount that keeps the pump mounted out of the way, but within an arm's reach when you need it, though it's compact enough to fit in most saddle bags, or even pockets, should a frame mount not be ideal for your ride. The Airstik SL is made from lightweight aluminum, coming in at only 58-grams, despite being much more durable than its plastic counterparts. It has a solid head that holds up to abuse on the trail, but it's important to keep in mind that the head only takes Presta valves, so if you use a Schrader you'll be out of luck. To pump efficiently, the Airstik SL uses a dual-chamber design that uses the inner shaft of the pump to double as an air chamber and increase air volume per stroke massively -- claiming a 37% increase over competitor's pumps of the same size. Because of the dual chamber system and small size, this mini pump is capable of achieving pressures as high as 160-PSI. The pump is made to be rebuilt, instead of tossed out, so you don't have to worry about a short lifespan in the event of a small part breaking.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
