Yea....65-95 psi. That is very helpful.

Back-in-the-day, I ran 20mm tires at 110psi. Probably because I wasn't strong enough to get my Silca Pista (which I still have) to get higher. Now, I use 90 psi in 25mm clinchers. Seems like a good compromise and I honestly don't subjectively feel a difference. I'd gladly give up a 0.05% marginal gain for one less flat a year.

Really? I have a Pista Plus and find it pretty easy to get my tires to 140 psi. I think the only real differences with the Plus are the base design and handle.

In what scenario do you use this?

No, not the pump.

The 140 psi pump.
