Released: Silca Superpista Ultimate Plus Pump and Ultimate Gauge Kit

For some reason I missed this back at Interbike ’14, but I definitely caught the cries of the righteously indignant as they protested its price. You already know my stance: if it’s too expensive for you then it wasn’t made for you. Buy something else and focus your bitching on something actually productive.

The Silca Superpista Ultimate Plus Pump ($500USD) is essentially a Superpista Ultimate Pump with an additional¬†low pressure gauge. The Ultimate Gauge Kit ($65USD) can be purchased separately (for those already owning an SUP) and allows the user to inflate their tires to within¬†a staggeringly accurate 0.5psi, perfect for CX and MTB tires (Note: MTB stands voor mountain bike‚ÄĒa cycling discipline popular in the 90s).

“The¬†kit¬†was¬†the¬†idea¬†of¬†our¬†pro¬†team¬†mechanics¬†and¬†athletes¬†who¬†were¬†riding¬†mostly¬†on¬†the¬†road¬†in¬†the¬†spring¬†and¬†summer, and¬†mostly¬†CX¬†and¬†off-road¬†in¬†the¬†fall.¬† By¬†adding¬†a¬†Low¬†Pressure¬†kit¬†to¬†a¬†standard¬†Ultimate¬†pump,¬†the¬†discerning¬†cyclist¬†can¬†go¬†from¬†1psi¬†accuracy¬†to¬†0.5psi¬†accuracy¬†at¬†CX¬†pressures‚ÄĚ says Joshua Portner, president of SILCA.”
