In brief: AV closure
When the heart pumps the blood out the left ventricle the aortic valve opens to let the blood out of the heart and to the aorta and rest of the body, this is the systole and measured as the systolic blood pressure.
When the aortic valve closes at the end of the cardiac cycle or during diastole, the pressure inside the vessels is the diastolic pressure.
