Ever wish you could just bring your air compressor on your ride? No more furiously pumping away with a tiny hand pump, or having to buy CO2 cartridges for your inflator? That seems to be the goal of Fumpa with their latest addition, the miniFumpa.
A much smaller version of the original Fumpa, the miniFumpa measures just 1.3×2.2×2.7″ (32x56x68mm) while weighing in at 187g. Essentially a hand held compressor with a presta valve nozzle, the miniFumpa will inflate a road tire up to 120psi, and is said to inflate two tires on a single charge. Going from zero to 100psi is said to take about 40-50 seconds, while recharging the device through the micro USB port will take a few hours.
Compared to the new Fumpa, the miniFumpa lacks the psi read out, extended hose, and schrader valve capability, but it’s small enough it will fit into your jersey pocket.
The mini is definitely the bigger story, but the Fump receives some key updates as well. Measuring in at 1.7×2.9×3.5″ (42x73x87mm), the Fumpa is also quite a bit heavier at 378g. Still, for a micro USB rechargeable air compressor, that’s not bad. Especially when you consider the larger Fumpa will inflate up to 6 tires on a single charge, again to 120psi for road. Compatible with both presta and schrader valves, the head uses a flippable insert that you have to unthread the pump head to change. Inflation is also faster at about 20 seconds to 100psi which is visible through the digital pressure gauge. The internals are also improved with a new direct drive system with fewer moving parts, and a retail of $179.
