Syncros Vernon 2.9 Dual Mode is a road and MTB pump in one

By Steve Frothingham

GIVISIEZ, Switzerland (BRAIN) — Syncros’ Vernon 2.0 Dual Mode Floor Pump is two pumps in one: a high-pressure road pump and a high-volume mountain bike pump. This is achieved through the use of two air chambers and an innovative valve system.

In Road mode, the pump is optimized to deliver a high pressure with a gauge calibrated to show up to 160 PSI / 11 BAR. A larger volume under pressure is harder to pump, so Syncros uses a single chamber to deliver a smaller volume but achieve the higher pressures that road riders require. The delivery per stroke is 327cc.

In MTB mode, the second air chamber is engaged to deliver air at a high volume, 799cc per stroke, more than double the air delivery from the single chamber. MTB and larger-capacity gravel tires require a large amount of air but at a low pressure. In addition, tubeless tires require a high-volume delivery in order to achieve a seal. Flipping the gauge reveals the MTB-friendly gauge with a scale that goes up to 40 PSI / 2.8 BAR, allowing for the highly accurate pressures preferred by today’s mountain bikers.

With its two air chambers our …read more
