Silca introduces compact Viaggio travel pump with bluetooth enabled gauge

Silca has introduced the compact Viaggio travel pump, with a bluetooth enabled pressure gauge.

It said the pump is for the "uncompromising cyclist seeking a highly portable and packable floor pump that desires the volume, efficiency and accuracy of a full-sized Silca floor pump".

The Viaggio is designed to be a "compact, folding pump that incorporated the stability and ergonomics of a full-sized floor pump combined with a highly accurate and easily readable gauge solution".

The pump is 57cm tall, weighs 1.34kg, has a detachable full-sized handle and folding feet. The gauge of Viaggio is driven by a Bluetooth enabled pressure sensor in the base of the pump, and this sensor transmits tyre pressure data to Silca’s iGauge smartphone app.
