Whenever you watch a You Tube demonstration of hand pumps, its never with a a rider who is like 5'-2" and 105 lbs. OK, given that she would only pump a road tire only to 85lbs. Still, I would say all mini pumps rely on arm strength.

That is why the Road Morph is different. It works like a floor pump where arm strength is not the main thing. Yet, I see even on You Tube demonstrations, the person not using their own weight and leg strength to pump up the tire.
