Pumps for suspension forks & rear shocks
Mountain bikers with suspension forks or rear shocks have it good: shocks back and front can be precisely tuned to the rider's weight and riding style without changing parts – all you need is the right pump. On the other hand, you need to set them up precisely to get the most out of these elements. A special pump like this should therefore be part of every serious mountain biker's tool kit. Like the suspension elements, shock pumps work with a small amount of air and a lot of pressure. Important: an accurate pressure gauge on the pump, valve head that can be put on and taken off without air escaping, and a flexible hose to easily get to the valve are recommended.
