Prime Floor Pump Review by Road Bike Action

RBA Prime floor pump review

July 2015 Road Bike Action review of the Velowurks Prime


Plenty of style and air all wrapped up into one

With a company history based in sealant technology, Velowurks was only one step away from providing that all-important piece to the inflation puzzle—a floor pump. And while there’s really not that much that makes up a pump—shaft, handle, gauge, base, hose and valve fitting—Velowurks saw a space for bringing some bicycle specific design elements to their Prime Pump. Velowurks uses a quick-release chuck lever, threaded headset cup and 31.8mm quill-stem clamp connected to a narrow handlebar for a playful touch. Velowurks does this with good taste, and it works pretty well too.


To make a quality pump, a few things must be considered. First, is your pump efficiently pumping pressure into your tires? The 56.5cm-tall air chamber measures 2.8cm in diameter and allows you to pump a 23mm-wide tire up to 100 psi with 17 pumps. Next is reliability—will the pump break down on you after a year of use? The Prime Pump uses an industrial-grade plunger gasket instead of rubber O-rings, which have a habit of slicing due to contaminants in the shaft chamber. Can you read the pressure while pumping? The Prime Pump sports a visible 7cm-diameter gauge with black psi lettering on a well-contrasted display so you don’t have to bend over guessing what pressure you’re at. Easily inter-changeable parts are a must. All of the important pieces thread together without tools, making replacing worn-out parts simple after years of use. The oversized base provides a large and stable platform during use. A braided red sheath covers and stiffens the rubber hose within.


All in all, a pump’s singular job is to inflate tires; if it can’t do that one job, it is not worth a dime. Fortunately for us, the Velowurks does its job and does it well. Similar to when we tested the redesigned Silca pump (RBA, January 2015), the Prime Pump proved to quite efficient due to the tall air chamber; it took 17 full pumps to fill a 23mm tire to 100 psi (versus 20 pumps with a Lezyne and 16 for a Bontrager) The pump gauge rates up to a very high 250 psi (higher than most), which also allows for a lighter action of pressing down on the handle. The die-cast air chuck is durable on the outside, but the internal rubber grommets lacked a secure hold. When you place the wheel in the right spot and get the chuck straight on the valve, there is no issue; when it is at an angle on the chuck, getting the grommet to seal can be problematic.


Yes, a pump is just a tool—a tool that simply puts air in your tires. It doesn’t need to be fancy; it just needs to work—and last. If we have learned on thing in our years of pumping tires, it’s the the world is full of janky, plastic floor pumps that seldom last an entire season. At #130, the Velowurks Prime floor pump is on the high-end spectrum of floor pumps, but it works. It’s built well, and oh yeah, it’s pretty cool to look at. When was the last time you said that about a floor pump?


• Highly efficient
• Chuck doesn’t grasp the valve well
• Aesthetically pleasing design


Price: $130
Weight: 5.25 pounds
Dimensions: 29 inches high; 8 by 11.5 inch footprint; 49.5-inch hose length (including chuck)
Efficiency: 17 pumps to 100 psi

Prime Floor Pump Review by The Racing Post

This Stuff Works: Velowurks: Prime Floor Pump

By TRP Staff

Perhaps the first thing one buys for their bicycle is a floor pump. The helmet, shoes, gloves, shorts and jersey is for you – the pump is for it. The first pump is usually one on sale. It works and you probably get the upgraded model with the gauge on it with numbers big enough to see while pumping. This one will last till the hose gives out, the “chuck” gets sloppy or it just dries up and starts leaking.

This time, you do it right. IF you’re going to do it right, do the Velowurks. It’s got everything design, function, quality and it just feels wonderful to use.

The functional features are easy to spot. The handle is anodized aluminum with the same color and feel as those Cinelli 64 bars you had two decades ago. It’s tall enough that you don’t have to crouch and it stands solid on three strong aluminum feet steadied and made floor friendly with rubber pads. The handle is attached to the plunger with the same mechanism that secured your Cinelli bars to the quill stem. It’s the same design as the famous Cinelli 1A. The gauge is big enough for a 60 year old man to read without cheaters and it’s calibrated in both psi and bars. The locking head documentation says it’s both Schrader and Presta but we’ll never know, will we? The real rubber hose is wrapped with woven fabric so as to prevent UV damage and the locking lever has the same nurling as Campy did, when the did that. It’s rated 250psi … or 18 bar … though we’ll never know if it makes it there, either. I’m sure it will fit my Tangente to anything they want to take.

It does not come with a “sports ball adapter.” This is a pump for bicycles and bicyclists. It has a name badge plate and it says it’s yours for life no problems.

By the way, it works and works well. For those of us who still have 4 or 6 Silca bodies stuffed away somewhere just in case frame pumps come back, this is an icon of another era. You’ll love it.

If you’ve just discovered your love of bicycles, you want this as well. It’s something you can give your son or daughter when they ride their first century or take first in the local crit – maybe your grandkids.

Many will tell you “Your bicycle is a tool”. That is to say it is simply a device through which you can do certain things. Stay healthy, divest yourself of stress, cover distances while enjoying adventure, lose calories or simply to go a bit faster than your buddy. But, we who love bicycles know that there is more than that. Bicycles are the communion of humankind. It is the engineering off a machine – the engine of which is you and it limited only by your focus, dedication and passion. Bicycles are functional art or dreams made of steel, aluminum, carbon fiber or titanium.

Whether you’re a “tool” bicyclists or an “Art” bicyclist – the Velowurks is your pump. At $129 MSRP, it’s a big pricey – But that’s really $ .12 a weekend for the next 20 years. I’m betting it will still inflate your tubulars to the exact right pressure then, as good as it does now.
