Since 1917 SILCA has been the global leader in high performance pumps for cycling. Starting first with the ultra-light frame pumps, we then went on innovating to create the first pumps with gauges and followed up with the first truly high-pressure capable pumps in the 1920’s. SILCA pumps have inflated more Grand Tour, Classics, Olympic and World Championship victories than any other in the category.
European pro mechanics prefer it because of its flat profile which makes it easy to store, and the pump that cyclists around the world purchase, confident that it will be the last floor pump they ever need to buy.
In 2017, SILCA took all of the qualities of the original Pista and introduced a re-engineered, limited-edition version of the pump with the iconic Molteni orange barrel to celebrate 100 years in business. These modern orange pumps were initially meant to be a limited-release product to celebrate their heritage, but the positive response and demand for the product has continued. As SILCA is now in their second century of making high-performance pumps, they've made Pista part of thier permanent floor pump line-up and will offer it in a modern red livery moving forward.
