The News: Crank Brothers Rounds out Pump and Tool Line

By Vernon Felton ||

Crankbrothers announced today that they’ve introduced a new range of tools and a brand new inflation program, including both entry level and premium models. All of the gear should be available in shops now.

The Sterling is Crankbrothers premium hand-pump offering.

The Pimped-Out Pump
Crankbrothers’ Sterling Pumps ($35 to $50) are their new premium pump offering and, as such, feature highly-polished, CNC’d and laser-etched aluminum outer bodies. The Sterling’s universal head works with both schrader or presta valves (without you having to futz with the head’s internals). The sterling pumps feature a high/low volume function that allows you to adjust for high volume or high pressure (in other words, mountain or road tire). Finally, the pump’s oversized gauge helps you keep track of your psi and is easy to read.

There are four models of Sterling pumps in two lengths (short or long), either with or without a gauge.

The Gem series is aimed at entry-level riders, yet features some of the same features you'd find in the Sterling series.

The Affordable Inflator
The new Gem pumps ($22 to $27) are aimed at entry-level customers and feature reversible internal heads that fit both schrader and presta valves. The Gem pumps also include the same high/low volume function as the sterling pump collection. Available in two length options (Long and Short)

Three new bit-based tools are also in the offering, including the top-level B17, shown here.

Three New Multi-Tools
The b-series tools ($20 to $33) are the latest addition to the Crankbrothers collection of multi-tools. This bit-based tool system includes a magnetized bit socket that helps keep the bit firmly in place as you work. According to Crankbrothers, the bit holder stays closed, which should eliminate concerns about bits falling out and getting lost in your pack. The bits are a standard size that can be purchased at any hardware store. The b-series collection of tools includes three models, each with a different set of tools in two size options.
