Blackburn has made pumps for quite some time, but the new Pista line of High Volume and Piston floor pumps up the game with premium materials and designs…not to mention nice graphics on the mountain bike-specific Chamber HV. Gauges are oversized, and some place them at the top of the shaft for easier reading. And of course, there are integrated bottle openers…

The Chamber HV tops out at 50psi with a 4″ high contrast face, giving you a finer reading for cyclocross, gravel and mountain bike tires, even plus and fat bikes.

With a supersized gauge, and 1 PSI increments on a 50 psi max dial, the Chamber HV allows you to quickly and easily put precise pressure in your tires. Dial it in and ride!

The pump head sits on the end of a long 47″ hose and uses an alloy top and lever with a convenient air bleed valve.

The hose wraps over the handle and secures to the shaft. Retail for the Chamber is $79.99.


At the top of the road-and-mountain compatible Piston lineup is the Piston 4. It gets a slimmer shaft than the Chamber to help you get it up to the track friendly max of 220psi (15bar). Hose length is 41.5″, gauge diameter is 3″. Retail TBD.


The Piston 3 drops the gauge to the bottom and the price to $49.99. The hose length cuts down to 37″ and the max psi to 160 (11.0bar). The gauge, however, jumps up to 4″ across.


The Piston 2 comes back down to a 3″ gauge and uses an all plastic “Any Valve” head. Hose length is 38″ and Max is 160psi, retail is $39.99.


All four Pistons use a steel shaft, and the top three get a steel base, too. The Piston 1 gets a molded plastic base. It brings the price down to $29.99, psi to 140 max and hose length to 37″. It comes in three colors, and includes sports needles.

Blackburn seems to replace their head design every few years, and they still haven’t sorted out a smart head to detect the valve type. These otherwise look cool.

They need to make a premium accumulator pump for tubeless wheels application.

If the blackburn pump PM is not already on this project then he needs to wake up.

Blackburn hold the patent on that type of pump, so while they don’t have something in the marketing I bet all the other brands are paying to have the design.

When is someone going to make a dual gauge (high/low) pump? I race road bikes. I race mountain bikes. I race cross bikes. I need three different bikes, I shouldn’t need more than one pump.

Waaaaaaaa! Any pump with a decent ‘head’ and will hit 120 psi and a cheapy digital pressure gauge that is precise, if not accurate?

I gave up waiting for a pump that combined a “tubeless tank” and a low-pressure, analog gauge that topped out around 35-45psi. I also got tired of people thinking I was crazy for wanting such a pump, thinking I’m some kind of anomaly. Maybe, maybe I’m the only one that rides tubeless tires around 25psi.

Anyway, point being, Lezyne finally released such a product with their new Digital Pressure Over Drive. I’d prefer an analog gauge, but I’ll take what I can get.

Lezyne website shows analog option. Meanwhile he-man can check out the virtual triple gauge JoeBlow Ace in case he decides to race track as well. Several valve grommets later, my eleven-year-old rotary plastic head Blackburn TP-3 soldiers on, road and mtb!

Cheap plastic heads on floor pumps never last!, The “sports needles” mounting location looks like an afterthought and is sure to get lost quickly and I’m curious about the durability of the plastic where the pump meets the hose on the Chamber HV….On a positive note the colors sure look good, too bad the rest of it looks like it was designed in China. Think I’ll pass and get a Lezyne pump.
