CyclingPlus on the Giant Control Tower Pro Pump

Giant Control Tower
Pro Floor Pump

CyclingPlus magazine, the premier publication for all things pedal-powered in the UK, has reviewed a piece of Giant GEAR: the Control Tower Pro Floor Pump.

The Control Tower Pro gets 4 out of 5 stars. Calling it the “Tower of Pressure,” the pub says the Control Tower Pro’s “…cast aluminum base is stable and strong, but still light, protecting its serviceable workings. Giant’s oversize double wall design means the inner air chamber is immune from external damage, and all of the seals and O-rings are replaceable, making it perfect for heavy use.” Also praised are the pump’s stature: “At 75cm, the pump’s extra height will also save your back.” And its ergonomics: “Grippy rubber inserts on top of the base prevent foot slippage, and the wide, angular wing-shaped handle has a soft rubberized coating for excellent grip.”

The 50-inch hose gives you a long reach, for whether your bike is on the floor or in a workstand. The Auto Head fits Presta and Schrader valves without any adapters or parts-swapping, and a release valve allows you to adjust pressure and avoid over-inflation.

We've got the Giant Control Tower Pro Floor Pump in stock at all three Century Cycles stores. $87.99 gets you a pump to last a lifetime, but if you buy before Feb. 28, 2013, it's only $76.55 (13% off) for our Make the Most of Winter Sale!
