Bontrager Air Rush Road. I think they have changed designs a bit over the years, but it is a combo hand pump/CO2 inflator like the one below:

I've never used the CO2's.

In fact, I've only had 1 flat on a ride in 6 years.

I did learn that the pump housings screw together and if they are not tight/seated you can't build any noteworthy pressure. Of course, that knowledge was gained after sitting on the side of the trail for about 30 minutes trying to get it to work... Now I know. The pump is actually a pretty decent pump for being a compact bike mounted one, though it is a small/low volume pump. You can still get up to 60PSI or so without much trouble. I never put a gauge on it, but it wasn't "low" after I fixed it.
