Yes, you read that headline correctly. (No, it is not April again.) Silca has a new bluetooth mini-pump. An update to their already popular and compact Tattico, Silca are claiming it to now be the most accurate pump you’ll ever stick in your pocket. Introduced last fall, the Tattico was already a premium pocket-sized pump in all aluminum, but now it gets its own on-board sensor that communicates to an app on your mobile phone to let you see precisely how much pressure your are putting into your tires. While its necessity on roadside repairs is surely debatable, #crossiscoming (and soon). A very portable way to dial in that perfect pressure in your tubulars trackside, might just be nice to have…
Tattico Bluetooth mini-pump
We live in an ever more app-based world, so why not? It’s nice to have a gauge on a mini-pump, but they often add extra weight, bulk, and never seem to be too reliable. So maybe Silca has got the right idea, slipping the little Bluetooth pressure sensor into empty space already there at the end of the Tattico’s barrel.
Silca prides itself on accuracy and durability, so we’re curious to see how this move goes. Rated to 120psi, the new $120 Tattico Bluetooth mini-pump connects via an app called iGauge, promising +/- 2% accuracy readings and measuring down to 1/2psi increments.
