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.
