We’ve been continuously impressed by the fact that Silca keeps churning out great tools in what is already a very saturated field. Just when we were wondering what pump the Indianapolis firm can make (um, shock pump guys?), Silca is now announcing a travel floor pump. The Viaggio.
It’s not just another travel floor pump, but a premium, $275 precision inflator with a lot to like: A large detachable handle, alloy folding legs, a proven Hiro presta chuck threaded into a schrader valve chuck, a class-leading 99cm hose, a generous use of metal parts, capabilities of 220psi, displayed on a Bluetooth-enabled pressure sensor first used in the Tattico mini pump that turns a smartphone into a tire gauge accurate within half a psi.
It has even got its own wax-canvas bag that pulls double-duty as a tool roll. The Viaggio is available now.
