Pump Up The Volume with the Cleanskin Shock Pump!

Why do we sometimes feel the need to pay double or triple the price for a product that does exactly the same job as a cheaper product? It’s a good question and one we should all ask ourselves. Is it because we have an affinity to certain brands (brand loyalty), or perhaps we think that a specific label on a product will perform better than another label?

Well perhaps the fresh faced and suitably named Cleanskin brand can shed some light on this. Cleanskin seem to keep producing excellent quality products at a fraction of the big brands price tags. Take a look at the Cleanskin Unite 1000 MTB light we reviewed recently, it’s impressive!

Now Cleanskin offer their Digital Mini Shock Pump, which looks pretty much identical to the (rhymes with Jox) shock pump. We’re not quite sure what’s going on here, but we also don’t really care. It’s obvious that these pumps are made under the same roof, somewhere, and a different label is placed on them at the end of the factory line? Could we be too harsh here? You tell us.

What really matters is that you get a digital shock pump that rivals the top brands version at half the price. Chicken dinner anyone?

Who Is Cleanskin?

Cleanskin is a newcomer to the MTB world and offers a small but growing range of products that focus entirely on the product and leave all the vacuous, glossy marketing gimmicks to the larger brands. Cleanskin doesn’t pass on the dollars to you in the gise of uber-cool, fancy packaging and thus can shave off the price tag on their products. We really like this type of low-fi, recyclable packaging and wish we could see more of it in this industry.

Features

Dial-in your suspension setup with the Cleanskin Digital Shock Pump with spot-on inflation accuracy combined with a pressure release button to ensure a precise setup. You can fine-tune your set up with the micro-adjust 2-3 PSI air-bleeder and the Anti-Air Loss Shock Valve.

The Cleanskin Digital Shock Pump boasts a large digital pressure gauge for excellent readability and switches between PSI, BAR or KG / CM² units with a single push-button. This model also has a replaceable battery option. Other more expensive brands didn’t have this option until very recently, so thank you Cleanskin for adding this feature.

The pump also auto powers off so you don’t have to worry about actually turning it off, just do the business and get riding. It also auto turns on when it detects air pressure of 5 psi. The Cleanskin Digital Shock pump is suitable for all air damper and suspension forks.
