I had some 5k pumps. After a year and a half, one pump started leaking. The skate would be totally deflated after 15 minutes. No more heel lock. Never again will I risk buying a pump skate.

If you need the pump to lock in your heel, you risk ending up with a useless skate after the very short warranty expires. If the skate fits well without inflating the pump, then you have the unnecessary extra weight of the unused pump/bladder system in your skate.

I switched to Bauer Flexlites and have never been happier. Just my 2 cents.
