Mountain Bike Rider magazine published a new review of the Giant Control Mini Combo pump, giving it a near-perfect score of 9/10 after a thorough field test.
In his review, MBR product tester James Bracey describes the Control Mini Combo as a “pocket sized pump with trackpump features.”
“The pump has a folding footrest that pivots from the main body,” Bracey wrote. “This also incorporates the small but relatively easy to read gauge measuring both psi and Bar. A t-handle folds out to give a more comfortable handhold. The long (37cm) hose makes the wheel positioning a little less crucial. It also incorporates a reversible screw down metal air-chuck to accommodate presta and schraeder valves. Of most interest to mountain bikers is the ability to telescope the shaft to push double the volume of air, which is handy for bigger tires.”
Summing up his experience with the Control Mini Combo pump, Bracey concluded: “What Giant has done is created fully loaded pump for a bargain price.”
