Tuesday, August, 2018—INDIANAPOLIS, IN. SILCA adds Venti Italian Army Knife to its lineup of multi-tools. Italian for ‘Twenty’ the Venti packs 20 high precision, hardened steel tools into the same flat design profile of its already existing Nove and Tredici Italian Army Knives.
New for Venti is a unique chain tool with a magnetic slide-lock design that allows it to be more than twice as long as other designs for improved ergonomics in use, while also allowing it to be removed completely from the tool for enhanced usability.The forged mid-length tools are long enough to reach all common cycling fasteners, but not so long that they twist or deform under load. The ergonomic side plates also hold a secret magnetic storage feature for a spare master link, and all tools are coated with SILCA's unique high-grip chrome plating which provides better torque transfer at the bolt interface.
Venti will go on sale on August 2nd at 11:00am EST and will begin shipping immediately. Retail Price: $46 USD

SILCA was founded in 1917 by Felice Sacchi outside of Milan, Italy. SILCA was the first company to put gauges on pumps, the first to produce a true ‘high-pressure’ frame pump and the first to work with revolutionary lightweight material plastic after the end of WWII, and later the first to bring CO2 to roadside inflation. Today SILCA is located in Indianapolis, IN where it continues to build iconic products that utilize the finest materials and craftsmanship available.
