Silca Super Pista Floor Pump $0.00
Possibly the last pump you ever buy.
The Silca Super Pista was introduced as a higher volume alternative to the venerable Pista that we've all had since back in the day. When we tried to fill our mountain bike tires, we realized the small volume/high pressure Pista, while perfect for road tires, meant way too much exertion to fill a knobby tire. The Super Pista has all the virtues of the Pista, but with a larger air chamber, which means 20% more stroke volume and faster pumping.
The 8" Beechwood handle was a vast improvement over the tiny plastic handle on the Pista (though the newest version of the Pista also has a wooden handle). There's plenty of room for man hands, and the Super Pista is taller as well to make life easy on your back when you need to top off a few sets of wheels at once. Silca pumps are so well-loved because they seem to last forever, and when something wears out after your first decade of usage, you can replace it for a few dollars and get loads more use out of it. That's what we've always done -- a replacement leather cup here and a fresh rubber washer there.
The Silca Super Pista has a large base for greater stability. The gauge is mounted down low, out of harms way should the pump get knocked over. And you know it will get knocked over. That's no big deal because the pump housing is made of steel. The two-part head can be used for either Presta or Schrader valves. It comes in Black only.
- All Super Pista parts are rebuildable, so if your gasket wears out in ten years, you can purchase a two-dollar gasket instead of a whole new pump
- Presta head unscrews to reveal a Schrader head for your old Subaru—or your mom’s old Schwinn LeTour
- Durable metal base for sturdiness and longevity
- Clear, retro-style gauge your grandfather would appreciate
- Has a 36-inch rubber hose for easy access to valve stems
What community has to say
The Best Ever
The most robust and longest lasting cycling pump ever made. Easily repairable if you have a marginal amount of mechanical aptitude. Parts are always available. The only part I've ever heard about that wears out is the leather piston, which you should occasionally remove, stretch, lubricate, and re-install. And that should last for years. Visit any good cycling shop and it's all that they use, ask them, and they'll say the same thing, they last forever!! GET ONE :-)
Silca Super Pista floor pump.
This could be the last pump you ever buy. Through Silca you can buy any spare parts that you might ever need. This pump and one point broke down on me, but i was able to take it apart and fix it without needing any parts. A piece of the rubber stopper after time broke off and got lodge in the hose. Took a minute to figure it, but I like that I can fix it.
I thought Silca was a top brand, but perhaps I was mistaken. I must have received a defective pump. It wouldn't even pump a balloon to 100 psi. I gave it one star because the valve head didn't leak. It goes back tomorrow.
