After more than 18 months of testing, use and abuse at the top levels of racing, we give you the SuperPista Ultimate Hiro Edition. Combining the multi award winning SuperPista Ultimate Pump with the multi-award winning Hiro Locking presta chuck, the Ultimate Hiro edition puts the identical tool used across the Pro-Tour in your garage.
Ultimate Hiro Edition utilizes a custom hose and magnetic Steel End Nut on the chuck, allowing the Hiro chuck to to be docked magnetically when not in use.
The Hiro chuck is 15% smaller in all dimensions than the original Hiro and utilizes a new plated steel wing design which allows for better compression control. New single stage 254 Gasket allows the chuck to be placed over the valve with NO interference or pressure, and then be locked into place with the new low profile lever. Hiro allows for one handed use in ALL disc wheels and on ALL valve extenders. Now in use by some 50% of Pro Tour teams and hundreds of shops and professional mechanics worldwide.
UPDATE: Due to new regulations placed on all species of Rosewood, we are going to cease sourcing it for our SuperPista Ultimate floor pump handle. The Convention of International Trade of Endangered Species (CITES) introduced these regulations in an effort to protect the species from illegal and unsustainable harvesting which has risen drastically over the past few years.
Going forward, SuperPista Ultimate handles will be handcrafted from Purpleheart Wood. Highly prized among furniture builders and specialty woodworkers, we chose this exotic wood for it’s exceptional tolerances, durability and brilliant character. Additionally, Purpleheart is not listed in the CITES Appendices of threatened or endangered species meaning that our supplier can guarantee quantities and sustainable sourcing. Slightly darker in appearance, these handles will continue to be made to the exact same specifications they have been made at since SuperPista Ultimate was introduced.
