Fox, the market leader in shocks, offers a reliable shock pump with a 300psi gauge that has the requisite rotating hose and screw-on Schrader valve. Plunger-style pump handle fits nicely in the palm of your hand. It features the great Fox logo.
Turns out a shock pump that bleeds air is almost worse than no shock pump at all. My old Fox pump lasted ~10 years; hoping this one will do the same. Seems to function almost identically, except now it folds up to fit in my toolbox. The only thing I wish they'd do to improve it is to make the valve section a little longer for better grip when you're pumping up a fork or a seatpost
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Pumps air into suspension, yeah. Maybe the unit I got was faulty, but the pressure gauge was off by hundreds of psi. After getting nervous about over-pressuring, I took my bike to a shop and realized that this pump was off way off! Too bad I didn't take a picture. I'm talking this pump read 300 when the shop's read 125. Backcountry - hoping you can hookup a free return or replacement for me on this one. I consider the unit for have to me unusable.
A must have with every modern mtb purchase. Proper sag setting can be something to experiment with and be tailored to not just rider weight but also style. These can wear out with extensive use but keeping the plunger and seals properly lubricated can do wonders.
Having the correct pressure in your shocks can make a huge difference in your riding. This shock is perfect for getting your shock pressures dialed in just right. It is very simple and easy to use, and its compact size allows it to fit inside my pack tool kit.

Reasonably Priced & Easy To Use
I've always found the process of manually measuring the sag of my fork and shock stressful. Fox's suspension pump is affordable and simplifies the entire process by eliminating those measurements and any subsequent arithmetic. It's easy: just google the recommend psi for your weight and fork/shock. And then pump. Don't forget to add an additional 5 psi or so for the air contained within the pump's hose.
Need a way to cram more air into your fork or shock? Or maybe let some out until you hit a precise amount? You are going to love this thing then. Simple, affordable, reliable, not too bulky... no brainer. Don't worry that it says fox on it, this will work great with any air suspension out there that utilizes a schrader valve, which is pretty much all of them as far as I know.
