Super Pista Digital Floor Pump
The Silca Super Pista was introduced as a higher volume alternative to the venerable Pista that many veteran cyclists still own. With modern higher volume tires, the need to move more air quicker is necessary and something that was lacking with the small volume/high-pressure Pista. The Super Pista Digital Floor Pump has all the virtues of the Pista, but with a larger air chamber, which means 20% more stroke volume and faster pumping along with a large easy to read digital gauge that makes it easy to get your tires at the right pressure every time.
The Ash handle is a vast improvement over the tiny plastic handle on the Pista and mirrors that of the SuperPista Ultimate providing the ultimate in comfort and ergonomics and it has a secure carring strap. There's plenty of room for large hands, and the Super Pista is taller as well to make life easy on your back when you need to top off a few sets of wheels at once. Silca pumps are so well-loved because they seem to last forever, and when something wears out after your first decade of usage, you can replace it for a few dollars and get loads more use out of it. That's what we've always done and this SuperPista combines a full metal shock piston design with the classic Italian leather plunger washer and German Igus linear bearings to create the highest efficiency, smoothest running SuperPista to date.
The Silca Super Pista has an oversized aluminum base for twice the stability over other designs. The backlit digital gauge is mounted up top and is 1% accurate with and adjustable pressure alarm and pressure units. Also, this pump has a first for Silca, a top-mount hose design with top mount magnetic chuck storage. This makes the chuck easier to reach and reduces back strain and eliminates bending over to access or store the chuck. As with the Ultimate pump, the SuperPista comes standard with its award-winning HIRO chuck. This full metal chuck was originally designed for ultra-high pressure track use, but mechanics have since found that they prefer it for its compact size, adjustability, and extreme holding ability on all valve and valve extension designs and have taken it over to other disciplines.

Silca quality, plus a color digital gauge!
I decided on this pump over the Lezyne CNC Digital Drive (also a quality unit), due to its top mounted gauge and the exceptional HIRO chuck. Everything performs as it should, and the accuracy this delivers is wonderful (verified against a secondary digital pressure gauge).
Tough pill to swallow price wise, but given the construction, I would venture that the pump should last decades.
