This new generation Pista comes with all of the performance features and components that have made it our top-selling floor pump since it was launched in 1962, Plus a few design features borrowed directly from the SuperPista Ultimate for increased stability and versatility.
Pista Plus, as with its predecessors, is a pump that’s built to outlast the rest of your cycling equipment. The durable steel barrel, 3mm-thick leather plunger piston design, and our proprietary brass air bridge and check-valve assembly ensure unrivaled longevity, not just in material strength but rebuild-ability as well. The smaller-diameter barrel combined with the superior pumping efficiency of our classic 28mm 731 model Italian leather plunger washer and German Igus linear bearings also mean that Pista Plus is capable of reaching pressures of up to 220 PSI, another nod to the Pista lineage.
The ‘Plus’ in Pista Plus stands for ‘Plus stability.’ Whereas previous generations of Pista pumps had design features that made them ideal for taking with you, we designed Pista Plus for those who prefer to leave the pump at home, in the shop, at the velodrome, etc. A first for the Pista product line, Pista Plus features a three-footed aluminum base and an enlarged lathe-turned Ash handle, which both draw inspiration from the ergonomics and superior stability of the SuperPista Ultimate platform.
Pista Plus has a long, flexible filler hose with an integrated Schrader chuck and comes standard with our push-on alloy Presta chuck with a bleeder valve. The chuck dock on Pista Plus is an intelligent design enhancement over the previous chuck dock design in that it now secures the chuck at the Schrader chuck instead of at the end of the Presta chuck. This design enhancement means that the rider can choose to swap the standard chuck out for our HIRO chuck, Disc Wheel Adapter while retaining the ability to secure the hose to the pump. The large 64mm gauge is accurate to 2% and combined with high contrast face design, provides improved readability.
