The last pump you'll ever buy.

When Silca first introduced its Pista floor pump, the mountain bike was just a glimmer in its father's eyes. That venerable pump became a cycling icon, still working after decades of service. However, the short fall was that it was designed before high-volume tires, and it missed the mark when you had to put 30+ psi in a downhill or 29er tire. However, Silca filled that niche with the introduction of the Super Pista Floor Pump.

Compared to the traditional Pista, the Super Pista's larger air chamber provides 20% more volume, so you can fill those girth'y rubbers with a few quick strokes. The eight inch Beechwood handle is also a vast improvement over the former's tiny plastic handles. The Super Pista is taller as well, as to make life easy on your back when you need to top off a few sets of wheels at once.

As stated above, Silca pumps are well-loved because they seem to last forever. And when something wears out after its first decade of use, you can replace it for a few dollars in order to add another decade to its lifespan. The Super Pista has a large base for greater stability, and the gauge is mounted down low, well out of harms way should the pump get knocked over. And you know it will get knocked over, but that's no big deal because the pump's housing is made of steel.

The Silca Super Pista Floor Pump is available in the color Dark Grey and features a two-part head that can be used for either Presta or Schrader valves.

Good pump need low pressure option

    Very smooth pump. valve adapter is the best I have ever used. Unfortunately they don't offer replacement gauges like the ultimate so I can use with my mtbs.

    The Gold Standard

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have one of the previous Pista models with the plastic (not wood) handle that is almost 40 years young. Parts are easy to get if you ever need 'em but most often pulling the plunger out and greasing/massaging the leather washer inside does the trick. The only other pump I'd consider would be the new, super ultimate Silca model made in the USA by the new owners of the venerable brand - otherwise get one of these before they're gone!

    you will buy pump head and washers

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Don't get me wrong, this is a really good pump, an enduring design, and mine is half a dozen years old. I'm also a latex tube junkie with 4 bikes around, so I pump a lot. The leather washer is what makes this pump work, and I'm on my 3rd. When, not if, your pump head breaks or won't work for you, don't waste your time with a Silca replacement - hunt down a Hirame or Tanaka pump head, or beat the rush and replace the stock head sooner.

    You don't need to replace the head, there is a washer in the head that periodically needs replacing as it wears. Just unscrew the cap off the head (side closest to the tire), take out the old washer and put in a new one. Good as new. The head is brass and won't ever wear out.
