Would you pay $450 for a bike pump? This SILCA SuperPista bike pump is the winner of the Interbike 2014 ‘Best In Show’ Award! And, it costs exactly $450. But for that price you’ll get what a bicycle floor pump should be.
At 7 pounds (3.2kg) the Ultimate is easily the heaviest and most stable floor pump ever made. Though only 5mm thick, and optimized for standing on in every type of cycling shoe imaginable, the SuperPista Ultimate base weighs more than most entire floor pumps and provides the largest, most stable platform available.
Every detail has been scrutinized and refined in the design and manufacture of the SuperPista Ultimate. Inside the main barrel, a leather washer moves air up and down with a piston rod that uses technologies normally seen in high-end mountain bike suspensions. On top of all this sits an ergonomic rosewood handle. Mated to 3 investment cast stainless steel lugs, the Ultimate’s handle was the result of studying both the ergonomics and manufacturing techniques of the finest Japanese culinary knife makers.
