When you pull the lever down, the pump provides initial pressure, which is about 11 bars. Once you let the lever go up, the pump turns off, and the lever does its magic. The lever is spring loaded and provides about 9.5 bars of pressure at the beginning to finish at around 5.5 bars at the end of extraction. The beauty of a lever machine is that you can manipulate the pressure by retarding the lever at a certain point during extraction to bring out more flavour from your coffee. This also allows for creating your own and unique pressure profiling.
