May 22nd 2018 — INDIANAPOLIS, IN. - SILCA – Our premium quality hex keys are now available as a travel kit. Since its release, the HX-ONE Home Essentials Kit has been one of our most popular products. HX-TWO and HX-THREE give users the same quality and precision tools, but the Beachwood box has been replaced by a custom molded tool holder; making them more ideal for storing in a toolbox or gear bag for travel.
HX-TWO features individual hex and torx® wrenches carefully produced from our exclusive 9- step heat-treated S2 tool steel. These tools feature a high grip polymer coating over top of our own high-engagement satin chrome. These finishes keep the tools from slipping in either the fastener or your fingers during use. The wrenches in HX-TWO have been meticulously chosen by our product team after extensive qualitative and quantative feedback from our inner-circle of pro mechanics, bike fitters, and frame builders. The hex keys in the set, which include 10, 8, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2.5, 2, and 1.5mm, and Torx keys include: T30, T27, T25, T20, T15, T10, T9, T8 and T7.
HX-THREE is our offering for the mechanic who's simply looking for the highest quality hex keys. These tools boast the same 9 step heat treated S2 tool steel, textured polymer coating, and exceedingly tight tolerances of HX-ONE and HX-TWO, while also featuring the same high-engagement satin chrome finish as HX-TWO. The hex keys in HX-THREE do not feature the elongated ball ends that are present on HX-ONE and HX-TWO tools, nor does the set come with torx® keys. This set was designed for the individual who doesn’t like ball ends, and/or doesn’t use torx® keys. Kit includes 10, 8, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2.5, 2, and 1.5mm hex keys.
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.
