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!
For those über fans of the Richard Sachs House Industries ‘Cross Team, you can now pick up a limited edition Silca Custom Artist Edition floor pump. Yes, they’re expensive, but we already knew that coming into this, right? Personally, I just like looking at the detail that goes into these paint jobs. See for yourself at Silca.
Having essential tools you need in one easy to access and transport location is a must. Silca takes their precision line to another level with these German and Swiss precision hex heads, with a twist. Along with the standard hex wrenches, is the proprietary made in the USA SILCA 17-4 Stainless Magnetic Adapter. The Adapter with a pleasant magnetic click turns the 6mm Hex Key into a ¼” socket drive which can fit any common ¼” driver Bit. Also in the HX-One Kit are are the 6 most common Torx sizes, 2 Phillips Head and 2 Flat head Drivers.
All tools fit in a laser-etched Beech wood case. In stock from Silca for $125 on September 1st. Head over for more information.
The first round of these went quick…
Silca’s Super Pista pumps already have a certain panache and when you turn one over as a canvas to an artist like Dario Pegoretti, they suddenly are elevated to art. For the latest run of Artist Series Super Pista floor pumps, Silca and Dario worked on 10 more pumps, ranging from $900 USD to $1,200 USD.
Expect these to go quickly once they hit the stock at Noon EDT on August 5th, so sign up to be alerted at Silca if you’d like to purchase one.
Fenders aren’t exactly my favorite bicycle accessory. Granted I live in Texas where it “never rains” or so it didn’t really until this year. We’ve had a very wet spring and summer, resulting in a lot of unexpected rain riding. So much so that I finally broke down and decided to ditch the big, plump tread of my Bruce Gordon Rock n Roads for some fenders and the biggest tire I could find that would fit…
Whether you already have an SuperPista Ultimate floor pump, or you’re buying for the first time, Silca’s got two gauge offerings depending on the style of riding you do. I can’t remember the last time I pumped past 60psi for any of my bikes and wanted the ability to hit lower pressures more accurately on my Silca pump. Now they sell a low-pressure 60psi Ultimate Gauge for $65 or the complete SuperPista Ultimate Plus floor pump which comes with both gauges.
Just in time for ‘cross season preparations.
As if a $450 floor pump wasn’t balleur enough, Silca has begun to stock their artist-edition Super Pista Ultimate Pumps first previewed here in the 2015 NAHBS coverage. The first artist being the legendary Dario Pegoretti. Known for his beautifully-constructed frames, made in Italy and painted like none other, Dario’s a true auteur in the modern framebuilding world.
Each pump painted by Dario is created completely by hand and no two will be exactly alike. A total of 10 pumps are available. See the entire collection at Silca.
I tend to get giddy about projects, especially those which were born in the USA, or at least in this case resurrected. Silca’s a company with its roots deeply embedded in cycling history. For over 100 years, this company has been a part of inflation technology (yes, I just said that). After the name was purchased and relocated to the USA, things have been changing rapidly. For the better.
That $400 floor pump caused a bit of a ruckus, as did the $40 air chucks yet for some reason the thought of a $165 frame pump doesn’t seem like a huge leap. Especially when you consider the detailing and that a made overseas Topeak or the like is still $50. The Impero Ultimate has been reborn. It’s a beast of metal, with no plastic parts and it’s machined in the USA. Best of all, it comes in BLACK!
Without me slobbering too much here with copy, why don’t you just check out the specs and more photos below, or order one at Silca. I just did.
For Friday the 13th, Indianapolis-based Silca has a limited run of EOLO III co2 chucks, machined from titanium. Only 50 of these will be available for one time only at Silca.cc starting now.
