As kiters we are always curious about new developments and improvements, but we have long overlooked a small but still important product. The pump. So what can you improve on a seemingly simple pump? A lot of! Take now:
Volume : With each stroke you pump a 2.9 liters of air into your kite with the TEN Extra Large Kite Pump .
Posture : Because of the oblique foot and the model you pump more out of your arms and less out of your back, this is less tiring and also less stressful for your lower back.
Calibrated pressure gauge : Always inflate your kite at the correct pressure. The digitally calibrated pressure gauge always shows you the exact pressure.
Super seals : No .. no ‘super seals’, but high quality rubbers and coatings that ensure that the pump’s piston can slide through the pump effortlessly. This keeps the TEN Kite Pump pumping smoothly even after prolonged use.
Single and double action : By removing a plug you can switch from double (both air when pumping up and down) to single action (blowing only when pumping down) in less than a second. The single action helps enormously with pumping kites hard because now you only have to put down force.
Strong and flexible hose : The problem with most pumps is the hose that starts to leak / rupture. The TEN pump has a strong hose that also consists of extra flexible plastic. This way it bends, which prevents cracks.
Universal : Last but not least are the attachments that come with the pump, so the pump can be used with practically any kite.
