A radical British-invented bicycle pump that requires no hard pumping has been awarded Innovation of the Year by Cycling Plus magazine.
Julian Peck, the Newcastle-based inventor of Cyclaire, explains,“nobody likes traditional bike pumps.
"You have to bend down, you lose air at the valve, the bike shakes around, and it can be really hard work to get to the right pressure.
"Cyclaire solves all these problems, so we’ve beaten competition from around the world to become Innovation of the Year.”
The Cyclaire is available with or without a waterproof carry case, which can be strapped to any bike.
