We're on the verge of the holiday season and that means one thing; gifts. This can always get tricky, especially if your loved one is a cyclist and you have no idea what to get him or her. Luckily SILCA makes a ton of beautiful products that will make cyclists of any level (very) happy. Below we've made a summary of this season most wanted products.
SuperPista Digital was designed for the multi-disciplinary cyclist who needs tools that are adaptable to the type of riding they're doing. The top mounted digital pressure gauge gives you the ability to very accurately measure your pressure whether you're putting 24psi in your cyclocross tires or 160psi in the tires of your track bike . The pump comes standard with our side-lever locking HIRO Chuck which you can adjust for different valve widths and it's Schrader compatible as well. Like all SILCA pumps, SuperPista Digital is also rebuild-able so you can easily replace parts like the gasket that are subject to wear and tear. MSRP is £275.
Anyone who spends any time at all working on their bike has either used,or would benefit from using a Y-wrench. Traditional Y-wrenches feature 4mm, 5mm and 6mm hex keys which means that you have three common wrench sizes in an ergonomic layout. But what if your bike has fasteners that require additional hex sizes, torx® fasteners or screws? Our Ypsilon Y-wrench solves this problem by allowing you to customize and easily change the layout of the tool based on what you need. A 1/4" collet magnetically secures the 6mm hex key but it can be removed and replaced with any bit you need. Ypsilon is also available as a home kit which comes in a Birch wood box and features a custom foam insert with a wide range of bits. MSRP is £108 for the home-kit, £74 without the wooden box, and £36 for just the wrench.
SICURO Titanium Bottle Cages are handmade by our engineers at SILCA headquarters in Indianapolis, IN USA using aerospace grade Titanium and state of the art laser welding techniques. We also gave them elongated mounting eyelets so you have 10mm of fore/aft adjustment to suit your different bikes. We're so confident that we've created the ultimate bottle cage that your purchase comes with our 25-year Shield level warranty; the most comprehensive warranty in the bicycling industry. MSRP is £70.
Upgrade how you carry your every ride essentials with the BORSA Americano. Made in America of up-cycled inner tubes and neoprene, this stylish essentials case is incredibly weather resistant and durable. Two internal pockets help keep everything organized and the size of the bag allows you to carry your plus-sized phone. Full image gallery here. MSRP is £45.
A good multi-tool is a staple in every cyclists saddle bag or tool roll and the Venti Italian Army Knife is the most complete one we make. With Venti, you have twenty tools at your disposal in a flat layout that was specifically designed to go in your seat bag without adding bulk to it. Most notable on Venti is the magnetic attachment that fastens to the top of the tool. This second multi-tool functions as a chain breaker, disc pad spreader, spoke wrench, valve core remover, 8mm flare nut wrench, and 10mm open end wrench. You won't find a more well thought out multi-tool on the market. MSRP is £45.
The amount of carbon fiber components being used on bikes these days make owning a torque wrench more important than it's ever been. If too much torque is applied during an adjustment, you risk crushing the carbon; too little torque and the component could move or slip which can be dangerous. T-Ratchet + Ti Torque is our portable torque wrench that's suited to both roadside and home use. The torque tube allows the user to measure 2-8NM of torque and it comes with the added benefit of being fastened to a 72-tooth ratchet. When not in use, the tool breaks down neatly into the case which also comes complete with 10 bits. MSRP is £98.
If you're shopping for a cyclist who's difficult to shop for because they seemingly have everything, here's your answer. The HX-ONE Home Essentials Kit has twice been named Top Cycling Gift of the Year by Bicycling and it has been featured in over forty gift guides. Hex keys are something that every cyclist uses and likely already has but this kit is much more than just a set of ordinary hex wrenches. The tools come in a beautiful Beech-wood box with custom machined slots for each wrench and bit. MSRP is £125.
Most cyclists are familiar with BOA. Their closure systems are used on some of the finest shoes and helmets in the industry. Seat Roll Premio is the first saddle bag on the market to use BOA technology on a saddle bag. Not only is the BOA Closure System secure (it's 18X stronger than velcro) but we designed the bag to look great on the modern bicycle. Gear Patrol once called Seat Roll Premio "the best cycling accessory you can buy under $50". MSRP is £48.
SILCA was founded in 1917 by Felice Sacchi outside of Milan, Italy. SILCAwas 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.
