Blackburn started manufacturing cycle products in 1975 when the founder Jim Blackburn wanted to make stronger, lighter, more innovative and more reliable cycling products. The company has grown massively since then but the ethos remains the same with an ever-increasing range of products. They are now recognised as a leader in pump design having created the first dual mini-pump, the first oversized mountain bike mini-pump and the first dual stroke track-pump as well as many other now standard features. Their award-winning range of lights is also well-proven and popular with commuters looking for simple, affordable bike lights.
