Amsterdam, 19th of February 2019 - The VIAGGIO Travel Pump is a compact folding floor pump designed specifically for cyclists who travel with their bike.
Featuring folding feet, a detachable full-sized handle, SILCA’s innovative Bluetooth gauge and a waxed-coated canvas roll with tool storage, this pump offers optimal portability without sacrificing any of the performance or durability benefits that you’d expect from a SILCA pump.
Like all SILCA floor pumps, VIAGGIO is rebuildable and built to last. 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. Make no mistake about it, from a performance standpoint this travel pump is a true floor pump and feels like one when in use.
The gauge of VIAGGIO is driven by a Bluetooth pressure sensor located in the barrel at the base the pump. This sensor transmits tire pressure data to SILCA’s iGauge smartphone app. Pioneered on SILCA’s TATTICO Bluetooth Mini-Pump in 2017, this successful and innovative technology is introduced once again in VIAGGIO because of its proven performance benefits.
Not only is this system accurate to within +/-0.5 PSI but it’s also proven to be extremely reliable, durable and easy to read. This system is powered by a standard 2032-coin battery providing around 100 hours of actual use, which is easily accessible at the bottom of the base when it needs to be replaced.

SILCA was founded in 1917 by Felice Sacchi outside of Milan, Italy. SILCA was the first company to put gauges on pumps, the first to produce a true ‘high-pressure’ frame pump and the first to work with revolutionary lightweight material plastic after the end of WWII, and later the first to bring CO2 to roadside inflation. Today SILCA is located in Indianapolis, IN where it continues to build iconic products that utilize the finest materials and craftsmanship available.
