The Impero has long been one of Silca's iconic products, the
frame pump of choice for generations of riders.
The Impero Ultimate is the latest iteration, taking the classic
design and updating it for the 21st century - retaining the classic
base whilst adding new technology only where it can be of real
The main body is still entirely metal, for strength, light
weight and durability. An elastomer head unit and silicone bumpers
bring the latest materials to where they're needed, the contact
points, ensuring a good fit and secure retention, both to the frame
when being carried, and to the valve when in use.
If you're going to attach a pump to your bike it had better look
good, and the Impero Ultimate certainly delivers on that front.
This is a handsome pump that will comfortably match most bike
aesthetics, whether classic steel tubing or carbon fibre
But as always with Silca, it's not just a pretty face. The large
volume capacity gives superbly efficient inflation - even the
smallest size will get from 0 to 100psi in just 112 strokes -
significantly ahead of the competition.
