The FOX High Pressure Digital Shock Pump is a pretty nifty unit, and the pressure gauge’s LCD display has large easy to read numbers that give instant reinforcement of its output. This design is much handier and user friendly to read then a traditional analog gauge, and the small .5 psi increments allow for minor alterations in pressure. The pump has some great features, including an extra long Schrader connector, which makes it easier to thread onto the valve and connect it into deep recesses. The highlight of the pump is the bleed button that allows very minute amounts of air to be dropped for precise pressure adjustments.
The pumps chamber is narrow and the lever has a short stroke, so it can some time to get a shock to higher pressures, but that also makes it easier to add small amounts. The pump is a bit more expensive than the competition, but it offers a lot of great creature comforts, including the bleed button and digital output. I do wish the battery was serviceable, but FOX claims it will outlast the pump?
This is a great functional pump, with an excellent Schrader connector and superb bleed button, and the user friendly digital readout with large numbers is pretty sweet for dialing in your suspension precisely.
- Easy to read digital LCD gauge
- Long Schrader connector
- Superb bleed button
- Not the cheapest on the market
- Battery not serviceable or rechargeable
- Short and low volume stroke – slow to fill shock/fork
