Majacraft as always, are trying to make craft tools that work great and look fantastic too. So based on this philosophy, they set about changing and improving the aesthetics of the Pioneer.
The base and pedals of the Pioneer are now in solid pine (pinus radiata), similar to the stem. It is a heavier wood than the original plywood so the overall look of the wheel is much more solid. We have changed the finish from a cream wash to a warm honey colored oil which accents the natural luster and grain of the timber.
