Small Company Drags the Bike Pump Industry Into the 21st Century
Tampa, FL May 18, 2015 – Web Brands announced today the addition of its new AerGun X-1000 Bicycle Pump color, Deep Sky Blue, now available on Amazon. The color is more striking than what this writer is used to seeing in a bike pump and it joins its top selling predecessor – also an uncommon color – the Neon Green AerGun.
The company had always planned additional colors for the AerGun and was able to introduce the Deep Sky Blue faster than originally anticipated. According to company CEO, Bruce Bernstein, “We live in a world where consumers often are presented with several color options for the products they buy. Old line bicycle pump makers seemed to ignore this trend, offering one color per model; usually in very standard, tired colors such as black, red, yellow, and, lately chrome… Not allot of excitement there. It always was our desire to offer our customers a more awesome assortment of choices. Due to the success of the original AerGun color, we were able to do this ahead of schedule.”
For those unfamiliar with the X-1000, it is a solidly constructed pump with a very advanced pump head and an easy, efficient pump action, offered at a very reasonable price. It is currently selling for $44.97 on Amazon.com, but the manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price is $59.97. The pump head moves between Presta and Schrader valves with ease – no adjustments or adapters are needed. Simply plug the pump head onto the valve, lock the handle, and pump.
According to a review from a ‘Top 500’ Amazon reviewer: “Upon receiving this pump, the first thing noticed was that the pump head had some heft to it and that it didn’t feel like a cheap piece of plastic. …a pump with a solidly constructed pump head that should last a long time. This pump head is great as there is no need for an adapter to switch between valve types.”
