A classic.

The iconic Silca Pista floor pump has been a staple of the serious cyclist since its introduction in the 1920's. The classic aesthetics and its ability to be easily rebuilt has allowed many cyclists to keep the Pistas in their arsenal for many decades. The modern Pista preserves the best qualities of the original pump while making some thoughtful improvements. If you're looking for an upgrade over your existing pump or even your first one, go ahead and consider the Pista Floor Pump, it's a solid investment.

First off, Silca improved the gauge so it has +/-3-percent accuracy versus the original Pista's +/-5-percent. This ensures your tire pressure is repeatable with each use and your ride remains consistent. Silca adds aluminum reinforcements to the base housing protecting the gauge against damage from impacts which preserves its accuracy. A new chuck assembly works with both Presta and Schrader valves and includes a new bleed button for easy chuck removal.

The handle mirrors the original 1962 model made of Bakelite, an early plastic, with two hose grooves allowing the pump to lay flat in your trunk or toolbox. Silca now crafts the handle from Ash wood. It’s incredibly strong allowing it to be lathe turned to exact tolerances so it fits comfortably in your hand. Full metal construction adds durability 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 as you air up to its 200 PSI maximum, while the larger foot adds stability reducing rocking. Silca did stick with a classic feature, its trademark 3mm thick, durable leather piston washer that Silca has sourced from the same factory in Milan.

Best pump last pump

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This pump is going to last a really long time. It is very well built. Not much plastic is used. The gauge is also very accurate. I wish there was a low pressure version for mountain bikes. It doesn't push much air so for mountain bike tires it can be a bit slow. Still worth it though if you have multiple bikes covering several disciplines.

It will last forever.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I picked this up on a whim thinking I wanted a pump to throw in the back of my car to top off tires at the trailhead. Construction is superb, I can tell it will last me a good long time, probably longer than my trusty Specialized Airtool. Wood handle is a nice touch, and the chuck is the best in the industry. I would love if they made this pump in a "low pressure" version, or sold an aftermarket gauge for it that displayed lower pressures for inflating MTB tires.

Is this pump made in the US like the more expensive Silca pump?



Based on the information in this review by CX magazine it is made here in the US of A.
