BIKE PUMP

While developing this pump, the primary objective was to focus on “design for manufacturing.” After analyzing various bike pumps and their inner workings, a new and simpler design was created. The pump’s body is held together by a single pin, eliminating the need for screws and significantly reducing assembly time. Similarly, snap fits were used to attach the handle to the piston, further simplifying the design.

Despite the main focus being on reducing manufacturing costs, the pump’s overall appearance was also improved. Most elements that typically protrude were concealed, making the pump less intrusive and more visually appealing. The goal was for the bicycle pump to be a subtle yet complementary visual element to any bike. The revamped design ensured that the pump was not just functional, but also aesthetically pleasing.
