Up first is the SuperPista Digital. Of course, the main feature is a backlit digital gauge. But it also has an easy-to-reach top-mounted hose and their award-winning HIRO chuck. All in a super-precise and rebuildable package. Together, it’s classic styling with modern technology.
How do you improve on a legacy? The Pista Plus has a bigger handle and base for better everyday usability. More evolutionary than revolutionary, it’s simply a better version of the pump that has been a mainstay amongst Pro Tour mechanics for three decades.
The tri-tool is a popular format for good reason. Its compact format and natural ergonomics work in many situations. Silca’s new Ypsilon innovates by making the Y-tool into a multitool. How? By adding a swappable 3rd bit using the common 1/4 size. You’ll find three iterations (two with a selection of high-precision bits). So there’s a price point for everyone in what is sure to become a cult classic amongst mechanics.
Last but not least is the Sicuro Carbon bottle cage. This is what happens when you apply the full power of carbon engineering to the problem of carbon bottle cages that don’t work well. High-speed video, multi-axis shake tests and more than a year of on-road testing. All that for a carbon cage that grips bottles securely, and allows for easy entry/exit. This design is so clever that bottles not firmly placed in the cage will actually slip into place, rather than eject at the least opportune moment.
