October is breast cancer awareness month and for every Nastro Cuscino Hot Pink & Black that SILCA sells they transfer €5 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
SILCA wants to do more than just make bicycles happy. Because October is breast cancer awareness month and 1 in 7 women are diagnosed with this disease, SILCA would like to do something in return and this month it's very easy to do so. When you buy a Nastro Cuscino Hot Pink & Black handlebar tape, SILCA will transfer €5 to the Susan G. Komen® foundation.
What was started with $200 and a shoebox full of potential donor names has now grown into the world’s largest nonprofit source of funding for the fight against breast cancer. To date, we’ve invested more than $2.9 billion in groundbreaking research, community health outreach, advocacy and programs in more than 60 countries. Our efforts helped reduce deaths from breast cancer by 40 percent between 1989-2016 and we won’t stop until our promise is fulfilled.
Help us, help them! With each Cuscino Black with Hot Pink Bar Tape purchase or by donating directly to the Susan G. Komen® organization.
SILCA was founded in 1917 by Felice Sacchi just 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 materials developed during WWII, and later the first to bring CO2 to roadside inflation. Today SILCA is located in Indianapolis, IN where they continue to build iconic products that use the best materials and craftsmanship available.
