The Rolex of Bike Pumps – Silca SuperPista Ultimate

LogoShield_1600x400_large

We are very happy and proud to have scored once again. We managed to get our hands on a great selection of Cycling finest Bicycle Pumps made by Silca.

SILCA was founded in 1917 by Felice Sacchi just outside of Milan, Italy.  The company innovated and grew quickly by innovating as the first company to put gauges on pumps, the first company to produce a true ‘high-pressure’ frame pump, the first to work with the revolutionary lightweight material plastic after the end of WWII.  More recently, the company was first with a valve controlled CO2 inflator, and with some irony, the first to move away from plastics and back to wood handles.  Along the way, the company ideals became deeply rooted in a combination of durable materials, traditional craftsmanship, and innovation.  It is no accident that so many of the SILCA pumps of the 1960’s and 70’s are still in use today, nor is it accidental that we continue to sell replacement parts for those very pumps.

By 2013, SILCA was the oldest company in the bicycle industry to have been continually owned by the same family.

We will have a selection of Pumps available including the unique Painted Silca Pista Ultimate Pumps designed by no other then Dario Pegoretti, one of the great contemporary steel framebuilders and a pioneer of lugless TIG welded frames.
