Silca offers Tattico mini-pump with wireless pressure gauge

Published August 22, 2017

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (BRAIN) — Silca has introduced a new version of its Tattico mini-pump with a wireless pressure gauge that connects to a smartphone via its iGauge app. 

The company said the pump is ideal for bike tourists who want to optimize their pressure during a tour. It also is appropriate for cyclocross racers who can tailor their tire pressure while pre-riding a course, and for travelers who fly with their bikes to events and don't want to pack a floor pump with gauge. Silca said it chose the wireless design because it was more practical and compact than adding an analog gauge to the pump. 

The gauge is isolated in a sealed, shock-proof and waterproof environment within the pump body. Silca said it is accurate to plus or minus 2 percent and reads to 0.5 psi. 

Using the pump powers up the pressure sensor to begin transmitting data to the iGauge app, which is available for Apple and Android. Closing the app powers down the gauge's battery. 

That Tattico pump features a 6061 Alloy barrel and gripping surfaces, a high-efficiency piston design, and a long extractable filler hose with locking presta/schrader chuck. It's capable of 120 psi, is 9 1/2 inches long and comes with a frame mount with retaining strap.

Silca worked with Taiwan's Co-Luck Enterprise Co. to develop the gauge and app. 

The Bluetooth pressure gauge uses a CR2032 battery. 

MSRP is $120. Silca plans to start shipping the pump on Aug. 31.
