While “good enough” gets the job done, there is beauty in going above and beyond. The SILCA SUPERPISTA ULTIMATE is the pinnacle of what a floor pump can achieve. From the highly accurate analog gauge to the magnetic HIRO dock to the lathe turned Purpleheart wood handle, this floor pump embodies the SILCA mantra of passion, precision, performance.
The SuperPista Ultimate HIRO Edition is ready to use when removed from the package. If you would like to learn more about features, functions and maintenance of the SuperPista Ultimate HIRO Edition, please visit the SILCA resource center.
Everything about it seems well-built and substantial to me. I don't want to risk a full disassembly and testing every component. Seems to be serviceable just by removing a threaded cap around the body and pulling out the plunger. The magnet to keep the chuck in place and divot in the handle to hold the hose is a good idea. Unfortunately it doesn't work if you use schrader valves like someone who doesn't hate himself because the built in thread-on schrader chuck, that the Hiro chuck threads into, isn't long enough to reach the magnet. If it was designed with a quality locking schrader chuck instead of a chuck for fragile garbage valves that people only use because they're too ****** to see past marketing gimmicks, then it would be ideal.
This is a beautiful pump and the presta adapter is fantastic! It is so well built that I suspect my grandkids will be happy to use it long after I am gone. No time to soon though, I hope!
Bought this through an affiliate (Jenson). Amazing pump. A joy to use and look at. Note: I replaced the Hiro chuck with a track-style chuck. The standard hose is a little short for the track chuck to reach the magnetic cup. But Silca will cut you a slightly longer hose that fits perfectly if you reach out to them. Thanks team Silca!
This was a birthday gift for my husband - he couldn’t be more pleased with the purchase. He has other bicycle pumps but the Silca quality is top notch!
