Using a hand pump to fix a flat can be cumbersome at best. A couple of CO2 cartridges make quick work of the job but you have to remember to bring them with you in the first place. And if you are traveling with your bike, finding cartridges at your destination isn’t always possible.

Tires inflated to the proper psi can play a huge difference in your ride experience. Standard floor pumps are generally geared more towards road bikes or for use as all-arounders, with gauges that read from 0-160 psi. This makes it difficult to accurately pinpoint the lower pressure levels required for mountain, cyclocross, gravel, and even fat tire bikes. Silca addresses the problem with a dedicated floor pump for low pressure tires.
