The SILCA PISTA PLUS Floor Pump

The SILCA PISTA PLUS Floor Pump

An Iconic Best Seller from SILCA

The PISTA PLUS is a universally beloved updated, and upgraded iteration of the iconic PISTA pump by SILCA. Adapted from its 1962 build, the PISTA PLUS comes with all the performance components that made the original PISTA a top seller with added design features borrowed from the SUPERPISTA Ultimate for increased stability and versatility.

The PISTA PLUS is built to outlast the rest of your cycling equipment. Constructed out of a durable steel barrel, 3mm-thick leather plunger piston design, and proprietary brass check-valve, the PISTA PLUS's assembly ensures unrivaled longevity. The PISTA PLUS outshines not just in material strength but in rebuild-ability as well. 

The small-diameter barrel combined with the superior pumping efficiency of the Italian leather plunger washer and German Igus linear bearings means that PISTA PLUS is capable of reaching pressures up to 220 PSI, another nod to the PISTA heritage.

The ‘Plus’ in PISTA PLUS stands for ‘Plus stability.’ Whereas the classic PISTA has a flat profile and other design features that make it an ideal travel pump, the PISTA PLUS is made for those who prefer to leave a pump at home, in the shop, or at the velodrome. With a three-footed aluminum base and an enlarged lathe-turned Ash handle, the PISTA PLUS shares some of the ergonomics and superior stability of the SUPERPISTA Ultimate platform.

The PISTA PLUS has a long-filler hose with an integrated Schrader chuck and SILCA's push-on alloy Presta chuck with a bleeder valve. The chuck dock is an intelligent design enhancement, now securing the Schrader portion, meaning that the rider can choose to swap the standard Presta chuck for the HIRO chuck, Disc Wheel Adapter, (or any other thread on-chuck for that matter) and still secure the hose.

  • Durable, high-strength steel barrel

About Silca

SILCA was founded in 1917 by Felice Sacchi outside of Milan, Italy. SILCA was the first company to put gauges on pumps, the first to produce a true ‘high-pressure’ frame pump and the first to work with revolutionary lightweight material plastic after the end of WWII, and later the first to bring CO2 to roadside inflation. Today SILCA is located in Indianapolis, IN where it continues to build iconic products that utilize the finest materials and craftsmanship available.
