Tuesday, July 16, 2019 — INDIANAPOLIS, IN. – Today, SILCA introduces the SICURO CAPSULE. The thermoformed unit attaches to the SICURO CARBON BOTTLE CAGE and is sold as an exclusive accessory for the cage. The capsule lid opens completely to reveal an interior, mesh pocket that secures smaller items when the lid is removed. Rare Earth magnets secures the lid of the capsule when it is closed — eliminating known zipper issues such as functionality failure due to too much debris. Initial field tests show that the capsule can handle a variety of terrains while keeping contents safe under normal course conditions.
While the capsule is small, it does need more space to attach to the bottom of the SICURO CARBON BOTTLE CAGE. Depending on the placement of the carbon bottle cage on the seat post and the size of the bike frame, the SICURO CAPSULE may not fit. The ideal scenario for the capsule would be to have one SICURO CARBON BOTTLE CAGE on the down tube with enough room for the capsule. If the frame can accommodate a secondary bottle cage, it would need to be positioned closer to the saddle on the seat tube.
The SICURO CARBON BOTTLE CAGE is required for the SICURO CAPSULE. In June 2019, a new color option for the SICURO CARBON BOTTLE CAGE was added to include a black matte with black gloss graphics. In addition to the black matte SICURO cage with white gloss graphics. Find the SICURO CARBON BOTTLE CAGE press release here.

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 use the nest materials and craftsmanship available.
