The canyon roads are finally open after a long winter restricted to the valley, and you're on the tail end of a joyful afternoons of sweeping climbs and scenic vistas when you hear the disheartening hiss of a tire losing pressure. Not to be foiled by malfunctioning CO2 cartridges or sub-par pumps, you're riding prepared with Silca's Tattico Mini Pump tucked neatly next to your water bottle. After sorting out the tire and tube situation, you unclip the Tattico from its mount, extend its stealthily hidden flexible hose, and securely attach the compression gasket for the perfect angle to air up and get back to exploring the roads.

Silca's best tire pump....
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Received this pump a few weeks ago. Design, build and material quality are all first rate--the pump is constructed almost entirely out of aluminum. It's more solid and heavier than the already solid and well-built mini-pumps from Lezyne. There are no issues pumping up a tire to 100 psi--even above 90 PSI the pump is fairly easy to pump. Silca designed in double-wall handles that isolate your hands from whatever heat all mini-pumps generate--this works well. The hose system is elegant and functional--the hose pulls out without the need to screw it into anything, and the chuck is simple, convenient, quick to use and functional. It locks on without screwing it over the schraeder or presta valve, so doesn't lose air when it is released.
The much-heralded Silca Impero frame pumps seem to me anachronistic--almost a form of historic reenactment. I also had a Super Pista Ultimate for awhile, which I found kludgy to use and ended up selling. But the Tattico isn't some over-hyped object to adore. The design effort that went into this pump translates not only into a well-built device that will probably last for years, but that also resulted in a pump that is more effective to use than comparable mini pumps. I like it more than any other Silca product.
How much does this weigh?
Per Silca (I emailed the same question), 175.2 grams, including the mount. I have not weighed mine, but I'm gonna trust this number until I measure otherwise.
