Take this awesome pump anywhere you go.
The Silca Pista floor pump is perhaps one of the most iconic symbols in cycling since its introduction in the 1920's. Beautiful aesthetics, completely rebuildable, and reliable, many cyclists have held on to their original Pistas for decades. The modern Pista preserves the best qualities of the original while improving upon the design in some very important ways. If you've always yearned for this pump, no time is better than the present so go ahead and purchase the Pista Floor Pump with Travel Bag and have your inflation duties covered for years to come.
Silca has improved the gauge so it's +/-3-percent accurate versus the original +/-5-percent. This ensures your tire pressure is repeatable with each use and your ride remains consistent. Silca also added aluminum reinforcements to the base housing to protect the gauge from damage and impact, preserving its accuracy. A new chuck assembly has Presta and Schrader compatibility and includes a new bleed button to make chuck removal easier.
The handle is a reincarnation of the original 1962 Bakelite, an early plastic, handle with two hose grooves allowing the pump to lay flat in your trunk, toolbox drawer, or it's included bag. Silca upped the ante with the handle on this version, however, and Ash wood is utilized. It’s incredibly strong allowing it to be lathe turned to exact tolerances. Other features include full metal construction for many years of flawless performance and reliability. The steel barrel and piston shaft have been upgraded from the original adding linear, self-lubricating glide bushings for increased smoothness and a larger foot for improved stability. What hasn't changed is the trademark 3mm thick, durable leather piston washer that Silca has utilized from the same factory in Milan.
The included travel bag is made of the same Silca quality and attention to detail. It's constructed from 600D nylon and canvas and features an EVA padded insert to protect your pump, plus two snap-closure pockets and two zippered storage compartments on the inside, perfect for spare tubes, tools, and small parts. The zipper is water resistant to keep out the elements and the bag has an integrated handle and removable shoulder strap.
