ANNIHILATEAIR FLOOR PUMP - more air with less effort

Axiom Annihilateair bike floor pumpNew for 2013, the topple-proof aluminum Annihilateair floor pump is a high-volume, high-pressure tool for pro/home mechanics. A pedal pin-studded base, LockDown grips, tall barrel, and dual-valve connector makes it stable, satisfying, easy to pump, and easy to connect.

Andrew says, “Every mechanic can relate to even the best of pumps tipping over when they turn their back for a second or if the pump gets hit– we fixed this. A taller barrel means less strokes and less leaning over, and an extra-long hose reaches up to workstand height.”

TERMINATEAIR HAND PUMP WITH HOSE - high-volume and high-pressure

Axiom-Terminateair-bike-pumpThe CNC-machined Terminateair hand pump is light, tough, attaches easily on valves, and—with diamond-knurled grip—feels great in your hands. Choose from HV (high-volume), MV (medium-volume), or HP (high-pressure) designs. All pumps have a quick-pull hose with a ReValver universal valve adaptor.

Andrew says,”Unlike other pumps, just pull the hose out and it’s ready to go—no twisting or removing. Plus the machine-knurled texture ensures a great grip when your hands are muddy or sweaty. Speaking of grip, since you don’t have to grip the end of the pump like other brands, we were able to put an air intake on the end of the pump to increase efficiency.”

BLASTAIR MINI BIKE PUMP – cool under pressure

Axiom Blastair bike mini bike pumpThe compact Blastair mini pump packs a punch. The tough CNC-machined aluminum pump weighs as little as 3 ounces, but glides high-volume (120psi) or high-pressure (160psi) air into a Presta or Schrader valve in a few strokes. During use the aluminum TipFlip locking lever keeps the valve contact secure and steers clear of the spokes. Available in high-volume short (HVS), high-volume long (HVL), high-pressure short (HPS), and high-pressure long (HPL) designs.

Andrew says, “Axiom pumps don’t use troublesome internal metal plungers. Some believe that all-metal is better, but when metal meets metal, it creates friction and heat. What is that heat doing to your rubber seals? Our pumps stay cool. Use the right plastic, as we do, and you eliminate heat.”
