SILCA recently unveiled VIAGGIO, a compact folding floor pump featuring a Bluetooth enabled gauge, designed specifically for cyclists who travel with their bike. The custom extruded 6061 alloy barrel contains SILCA's standard full-metal shock piston, traditional Italian leather gasket and Brass check valve for superior efficiency and smoothness.
The Aluminum handle on VIAGGIO is a slightly smaller version of the SuperPista Ultimate handle, making it the largest, most stable handle on a travel-specific pump. When not in use, the handle slides off the piston cradle and then slides securely onto the alloy barrel rail. Not only does this secure the handle, but the design also allows you to lock the hose in place as well.
The business end of the 99cm hose sports a Schrader fitting which threads onto the top-of-the-line HIRO side-lever locking Presta Chuck. The gauge of VIAGGIO is driven by a Bluetooth enabled pressure sensor located in the barrel at the base of the pump. This sensor transmits tire pressure data to SILCA's iGauge smartphone app.
