Silca Super Pista Ultimate Hiro Edition Floor Pump $450.00
The definitive floor pump.
The Silca Super Pista Ultimate Hiro Edition Floor Pump is the Rolls-Royce of floor pumps and it’s such a treat to use, you'll look forward to topping off your tires. Its constructed much like the standard SuperPista, sharing its stainless steel barrel and precision machined hardware to exacting tolerances, but includes the excellent Hiro chuck. Inside the barrel is where the real magic is. No wimpy plastic parts here. These parts wouldn't be out of place on a high-end suspension fork. A 7075 aluminum piston holds the trademark full-grain leather 2.5mm Silca gasket that pushes air, while the IGUS linear glide surfaces let you effortlessly pump up your tires to 160psi. It's all held together with stainless steel hardware and warrantied for 25 years.
Silca's Hiro V2.0 chuck is a thing of beauty and the side-lever locking is a godsend during higher pressure top offs. It features a new single stage 254 gasket for a perfect, customized fit on nearly any valve, then a spring-loaded lever locks the chuck in place. This unique side-swing lever allows its use with any wheel system and is especially handy allowing for one-handed use on disc wheels, valve extenders, and valves as short as 10mm. Completely rebuildable, a pump this nice deserves a chuck this refined.
The gauge is accurate to an unprecedented +/- 1% so you can achieve the same pressers repeatedly. The hose is constructed with a PTFE liner and is stainless steel braided and wrapped in red urethane. This attention to detail would make a NASA engineer gush. It can withstand pressure up to 12,000psi, just in case…. Silca crafts a handle from exotic purpleheart wood that's as ergonomic as it is beautiful and attaches it using investment cast lugs. It's highly prized among furniture builders and specialty woodworkers, for its exceptional tolerances and durability. There's no doubt that the details of the Super Pista Hiro are refined to perfection and will become a family heirloom.
