Impero Ultimate represents the ultimate in design, functionality, security and longevity.
In the 1920's SILCA revolutionized roadside inflation with the creation of the Impero Frame Fit Pump. These early pumps used the revolutionary material 'Duraliminium' (2000 series aluminum) to replace steel. Within a few years SILCA frame pumps could be found on the bicycles of more than 80% of the professional peloton which was then still fully self-supported. Over the next 70 years the Impero would be the most widely used frame pump in the world.
