144 psi with a machine, maybe. My money's on 60 psi max, in practice.

I don't know, the Topeak Carbon Mini Rocket get my tires up over 100 psi. I don't see why this couldn't.

Quick review but they seem to think it can cope with high pressures.

"we tried it on an already inflated tyre and can confirm that it not only did not let any air out, as do many pumps of its size, but actually got some in"

This would be a nice addition to the weenie seat bag. I have the Topeak Micro Rocket AL, 60 grams. Works good enough to get my tire tight enough for the ride home and beyond.

"Whether it will reach the claimed pressure will have to wait a more thorough test."

I bet they are still pumping...

If you want some real eye-candy for just a bit more weight, check out their carbon pump:

Built-in gauge, and the pump head is hidden (and sealed) until you twist the barrel. I just ordered one from Amazon, I couldn't resist!

Is there any experience with this pump here, since this topic was started?
I just saw one at a LBS and I like its' weight!

Thanks!

I'll take the Lezyne carbon road drive at 80g over this one.
