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.


DETAILS

The modern Pista preserves the beautiful aesthetics of the original, but improves on the design in some very important ways. The gauge has been updated to a much higher precision +/-3% accuracy (compared to the original +/-5%) while adding reinforcement to the base which protects the gauge from damage and impact. The modern Pista handle is a near reincarnation of the original 1962 Bakelite handle with the two hose grooves that allowed the pump to lay as flat as possible in the trunk of a car or in a drawer. For this handle, the team at SILCA has specified Ash for its incredible strength and stability, which allows the wood to be CNC machined to even tighter tolerances. Full metal construction ensures a lifetime of flawless performance and reliability. The steel barrel and piston shaft are upgrades in quality and durability from the previous Pista designs adding linear glide bushings for ultimate smoothness; while the slightly enlarged foot guarantees improved stability without sacrificing portability.
