Cleverly positioned within the inner barrel where it is able to slide in and out of the end of the pump without being removed or having to thread in place allowing maximum air volume per stroke. The hose attaches with a compression gasket activated by a small aluminum lever. In classic SILCA fashion, the compression gasket it reversible for Presta or Schrader. The Tattico fits comfortably in a pocket or mounted in its carbon-reinforced clip under your bottle cage.

The Silca story:

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.
