If you’ve been around the sport of cycling for any length of time, you’ve likely seen this pump with a Molteni orange barrel. That’s because, during the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s the orange Pista was the pump that shop mechanics used because of its rebuildability; the pump that the European pro mechanics preferred because of its flat profile; and the pump that cyclists around the world bought knowing that it would be the last floor pump they ever needed to buy.
In 2017, Silca took all of the qualities of the original Pista and introduced a re-engineered the pump with the iconic Molteni orange barrel to celebrate 100 years in business.
The modern Pista preserves the beautiful aesthetics of the original but improves on the design in some very important ways. The gauge has been updated to a much higher precision; the handle is a reincarnation of the original but is now made with Ash wood instead of Bakelite, and the steel barrel and piston shaft are upgrades in quality and durability from the original.
This pump is sold with the Silca Pista Travel Bag. Made from 600D nylon and canvas, this bag features an EVA padded insert to hold your pump, plus two snap-closure pockets and two zippered storage compartments on the inside that are perfect for your spare tubes, tools, bottles and nutrition products. A weather-resistant zipper keeps the elements out and you have the choice of using the integrated handle or a removal carry strap when you’re on the move.
