Traveling with your bike can be a real pain sometimes, yet with the right tips and pointers, even the most potentially stressful endeavors can be as easy as a tailwind. Silca recently reached out to a handful of cyclists, ranging from pros to adventure-seekers to hand over their coveted travel tips. Head to the Silca Blog to read more!
Silca doesn’t think it makes sense to have multiple Y Wrenches kicking around your workbench. They believe you should be able to customize your wrench for whatever task at hand. You know what? I agree. If you do too, check out the new Ypsilon wrench at Silca.
The thing I use the most in my toolkit is my Silca HX-One home wrench set, yet I never bring it on the road with me because I’m afraid of losing some of the tiny bits in the black hole that is my truck. After the success of the HX-One home kit, Silca announced their HX-Two travel kit. These are not your standard hex wrenches. Not at all. This is Silca after all.
These wrenches are heat treated with a 9 step process, with a high grip polymer coating over high-engagement satin chrome. After over two years of heavy use, my HX-One wrenches still look brand new. 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. See more at Silca.
Silca has two new bag offerings, both of which are made from recycled inner tubes, here in the USA by Colorado-based EcoLogic Designs. The Borsa Americano is a small, riding wallet based on the dimensions of the iPhone 7+, offering tons of extra space for your riding essentials. The Brooklyn backpack is a 972 cubic inch commuter bag, which will fit your laptop and other office goods. Both are in stock now at Silca.
“Dario Pegoretti is an Italian bicycle framebuilder who is widely considered to be one of the greatest steel framebuilders in the world today. An apprentice under master builder Luigino Milani, he has also often credited with pioneering lugless and TIG welded frames.
Aside from his mastery of framebuilding, Dario is a remarkable artist and often hand paints his frames using custom designs that he creates himself. He’s built and painted bikes for some of the sport’s greatest athletes and his frames and anything he paints are sought after by collectors around the world.”
Not that Dario needs an introduction. Check out more on these beautiful 5 SuperPista Ultimate pumps at Silca.
Silca rolled out their most innovative product yet today, the Tattico Bluetooth Mini-Pump. The pump relies on a bluetooth app called iGauge to read your bike’s air pressure. This allows the Tattico to be a true mini-pump and offers accurate air pressure readings. It’s a very innovative product and one that I’d like to see in person for sure. Check out more at Silca.
To commemorate their 100th anniversary, Silca has brought back their most notable classic, the Pista Pump. Complete with or without the lux carrying case, this pump is meant to bring you the precision that gave it notoriety at velodromes around the world, at a pricepoint of $125 for the pump or with the Travel Bag for $199. See more at Silca.
Silca’s new accessories are all looking great, but the one that struck me the most is the Seat Roll Premio. It’s a saddle pack that uses a Boa closure system and it’s the first one I’ve ever seen utilize that technology. Excessive? Perhaps. Does it look rad? Yeah. See more at Silca.
Silca’s tools and pumps are some of the best in the industry, so it’s safe to say this T-Ratchet multi tool and Ti-Torque extension will follow suit with the rest of their products. For the engineering process and more product information, head over to the Kickstarter.
Ya know, Silca didn’t begin in Indianapolis. There’s a long legacy of pump making in that brand’s DNA. To commemorate this legacy, as well as the Giro, Silca teamed up with Tim DeBoom to illustrate this 1970’s team car and had them printed at Endurance Conspiracy in Boulder.
Scoop one up at Silca.
Sure, there’s an N+1 rule for bikes, but in my opinion, there’s only room for “N” when it comes to pumps. If the pricepoint of the Silca Pista doesn’t scare you away, then maybe you can take a bite off their artist series pumps. The second stock of these Artist Edition pumps lands at noon EDT. Head to Silca to scope the selection…
Check out these Silca x Yanco tool rolls. In stock now for $65 at Silca.
Silca, Taylor Phinney and the Pro’s Closet are raising money for the Davis Phinney foundation by auctioning off this custom, hand-painted SuperPista floor pump. Taylor himself did the artwork while at the UCI Worlds in Richmond this year. The auction is already up there, but with all proceeds going to the Davis Phinney Foundation and this being a one-of-one, I bet the price gets even higher.
Check out more at the eBay auction!
I also wanted to say how stoked I am this project came together.
You’d better act quick on this one! Yanco’s popular Rambling Roll got a few updates and is now being offered by Silca exclusively ($55). To match the launch is the Pocket Impero ($120), a powerful pocket pump with all the details as the Impero frame pump.
Both in stock now at Silca.
We saw this in the Interbike 2015 coverage already and it seems they’ve landed…
Silca took their Frame Pump and shrunk it to a jersey pocket, or pack-friendly size. Complete with the same leather washer as the Frame Pump, a unique silicone locking grip and better heat transfer for more efficient pumping, the Pocket Impero packs a punch. Made in the USA and in stock now at Silca.
Now when’s that Yanco for Silca saddle bag going to be in stock?
Perhaps you remember the comments in that one Phinney video where someone suggested Silca and Taylor team up on a pump? Well, I emailed the two of them and voila, it happened. If you’re at Worlds, don’t miss out!
