With and Without ET Handle With and Without ET Handle With and Without ET Handle

ET Handle is a specially designed add-on for kitesurfing air pumps.

The ET Handle is designed to raise the grip of the kite pump making it easier than you ever thought possible to pump up a kite.

With the ET Handle attached, you hold your body more comfortably, meaning that pumping up your kite can be done more quickly and easily than ever before.



So how does it work?

Close up of the ET Handle attachment

Put simply, the ET Handle is an extension that attaches to the top of your standard double-action air pump.

ET Handle has a patent-pending design, which uses strong velcro strips and a specially shaped connection point to make sure it attaches securely to the top of the air pump.




With the handle attached, you can now pump up your kite as normal, except now that the handle is much higher, pumping up the kite is:

  • Easier - One of the best points about the ET Handle is that it means pumping up a kite is MUCH easier.
    No need to squat down at an awkward height.
  • Quicker - In testing, we found that people generally pump up a kite 30-50% quicker using ET Handle compared to a standard air pump.
  • Safer - Less chance of hurting your back or legs.


Above all, the ET Handle gets you on the water quicker, with more energy left and improves the quality of your kitesurfing session.

Let's look at a comparison between a pump with the ET Handle attached, and a standard one:

With ET Handle

Even when the pump is in its lowest position, you only need to bend your body a little bit.

When the pump is in its highest position, you can stand naturally.

WithOUT ET Handle

With the standard pump, you need to really bend your knees and back - it's like doing a set of squats at the gym before even getting in the water!

Even with the standard pump fully extended, you still can't stand up properly.

We're confident, once you try the ET Handle, you will never want to go back to pumping up a kite the old fashioned way - ever again.
