Birzman has gone for the chrome look barrel and wooden handle, making its pump look pretty smart.
The barrel stands at a 5° angle, which makes it slightly easier to use than a traditional vertical pump. But the best feature of the Zacoo Maha III is the ‘Snap-it-valve’.
Once you’ve pressed the head of the pump onto the valve, you slide down the small gold collar on the end and it locks into place. It’s so simple and yet makes attaching and releasing the head supremely easy.
It also holds the valve firmly in place under high pressure, which is just as well given that this pump can deliver up to 220psi.
There’s also a pressure control button that allows you to get things just right by releasing small amounts of air while the pump is still attached – useful if you’re particular about tyre pressures.
