What is it?
Since 1917, SILCA has been the global leader in high-performance pumps for cycling. The Pista Floor Pump embodies that heritage. A high-performance, durable, compact floor pump that easily reaches all tire pressure requirements while being small enough to live in the trunk of a car or hang/stand flat against the wall taking up minimal space.
Who's it for?
European pro mechanics prefer because of its flat profile which makes it easy to store; and the pump that cyclists around the world purchase confident that it will be the last floor pump they ever need to buy.
WHY WE DESIGNED IT:
Originally designed in the 1950's when the Bianchi-Pirelli team requested a pump that could fit under the rear seat of the Fiat team car, the Pista pump quickly became an icon of professional team cars and mechanic workstations at 6-Day track events around the world. The compact form of the pump, and ability to lay completely flat, allow the pump to take up minimal space in a trunk, duffel bag, or larger tool kit, making it a true icon of the sport amongst the cycling cognoscenti.
In 2017, we took all of the qualities of the original Pista and introduced a re-engineered, limited-edition version of the pump with the iconic Molteni orange barrel to celebrate 100 years in business. These modern orange pumps were initially meant to be a limited-release product to celebrate our heritage, but the positive response and demand for the product has continued. As we’re now in our second century of making high-performance pumps, we’re pleased to make Pista part of our permanent floor pump line-up and will offer it in a modern red livery moving forward.
