    Details

    Performance art for cyclists.

    The Silca Superpista Ultimate Pump is a craftsman’s delight that will make the daily task of pumping your tires a little less arduous. This work of art is fabricated with a stainless steel barrel and hardware that is machined to minute tolerances. Inside the barrel, the Silca leather washer moves the air, while a PTFE-impregnated piston rod pushes the bushing in the cap to maximize smoothness as it pumps your tires up to 160psi.

    The gauge is upgraded from the standard +/-5% tolerance to a laboratory tested +/- 1%. The hoses, constructed of PTFE liner, over-braided in stainless steel, and wrapped in red urethane, are aircraft grade. They will withstand pressure up to 12,000psi, in case you get overzealous. Looking to Japanese culinary knife makers for inspiration, Silca crafted a rosewood handle that is ergonomic as well as beautiful. It is attached using investment cast lugs. Because every detail of the Superpista is refined to perfection, Silca is proud to feature a 25-year parts warranty.

    Fantastic until the hose connector broke

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The pump worked extremely well until the hose connector broke. I emailed Silca to describe the issue. They promptly sent a new hose and indicated there was a problem with the early hose connectors. I have a number of other floor pumps from the past 25 years that have also failed. With the new hose, I'm hoping I won't have to make further use of the 25 year warranty.

    Fantastic until the hose connector broke

    Pretty but not reliable

      Supposedly this is top quality, ready to be an heirloom. But after about 15 months of gentle use it failed, the hose came out of the base. Our old Park pump is a lot more reliable, if less "classic."
      Then, they said they would get a replacement part in the mail on Monday. It is now Friday and they are saying it'll be in the mail this afternoon. So add poor customer service on top of poor reliability.

      Silca Perfection

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      If it's possible to have an airgasm, then this pump is the way to do it. It's less-expensive alternative (the SuperPista) is 99% as awesome for high pressure at 55% of the price, but has limitations for low-pressure uses.

      I've had a love affair with Silca pumps since I first started riding bikes some 30-ish years ago ... in fact, my original Silca Pista from the mid-1980s is still going strong with just a couple of overhauls to replace gaskets and the leather plunger in that time.

      The only downside with my original pump is that the stroke is so short compared to many more modern pumps; but modern pumps use a lot of plastic and wear out ... one gets tired of having to replace chucks (or buying a new pump, because it's only $5-10 more than buying the replacement chuck).

      When the new owners of Silca moved production from Italy to the United States and came out with the new Silca SuperPista and the SuperPista Ultimate, I knew I had to have one.

      Yeah, they are quite spendy, but on the other hand, it truly is the last pump you will ever buy. The SuperPista Ultimate is made of steel and does have a replaceable gauge for low-pressure uses. Because it's steel it has some heft and feels really solid, stable, and steady when in use.

      The SuperPista is made of aluminium, and does not have a replaceable gauge. While the base is exactly the same size as on its big brother, because of its light weight, it feels just ever so slightly less stable when pumping up your tires. But seriously, we're talking about a percentage point here.

      Neither pump has any plastic in any critical areas; in fact, the only plastic I can find is the lens on the gauges.

      Like the original Italian-made pumps, all the critical parts are serviceable and replaceable; and the pumps come with a 25-year warranty. In the bicycle industry, where technology (and companies) comes and goes, it's refreshing to know that there are some constants.

      Did I need a new pump? No, because like I said, my original Pista is still going strong ... but the new ones work even better, and it's nice knowing that I will never need to buy another pump again.

      Phenomenal Pump

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I'd say I have put this through the ringer, but the ringer with Silca is not for another 20+ years. I've used it a bunch and am amazed every time. The detail and workmanship is incredible. Smooth action, comfortable handle. It is truly a piece of art. The sticker will shock anyone but it's well worth the money whether you're a collector or an avid that wants and end-all pump never having to be replaced. I still can't believe this thing!

      Silca Super Pista Ultimate Pump

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I have been wanting one of these pumps for a long time, but the "sticker" shock was too much. So, when CC had one of their great 20% off sales-- I jumped. The quality and workmanship of this pump is beyond belief-- it's a work of art. The thing is perfect without a blemish anywhere. It is also the smoothest operating pump I have ever used. Not to mention you can't beat a 25 year warranty !!!! If you buy one you will not be sorry....

      What is the difference between the low pressure and the 160psi?
