Specialized's Airtool Sport is a quality pump and a great value. It features Specialized's SwitchHitter head that works with both Presta and Schrader valves for easy use. Plus, the Airtool uses an all-steel body for extra durability, while the three-sided base provides superb stability. And, it comes with an oversize, easy-to-read gauge, too.
I've had this pump for 4 years and used it on every bike I've owned, even my street/dirt motorcycle (when I'm too lazy to turn on the air compressor). It has never let me down and it's still working just like the day I've bought it. If I had to estimate, I'd say my roommate and I, both cyclists, have used this pump over 100 times easily.
A+ in my book
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
It does the job well enough, until it blows out... Mine let loose at about 80PSI, sending multiple pieces of plastic shrapnel around the room at rather high speeds, accompanied by a loud BOOM! My cats really did not appreciate that.
