Silca pumps have one of the best and longest running reputations in the industry. Founded in 1917, Silca is known for quality and durability; it is not uncommon to see a Silca floor pump from the 1960s still in use. Silca was sold to Joshua Poertner in 2013 and the company was moved to from Italy to Indianapolis, Indiana. In 2015, following the re-release of the Super Pista floor pump, Silca rolled out the Impero frame pump. The Impero is a lust-worthy piece of equipment, with a price tag to match.
Beautiful design and industry-leading pumping performance set the Impero apart from its competitors. While the aesthetics of frame pumps can be a polarizing issue, there is no disputing that the Impero is far and away the best looking frame pump on the market. The Impero is the clear winner of our Top Pick Award for Frame Pumps.
