Parts & Accessories
In a world where aluminum is used to replace brass for cost, and plastic is used to replace aluminum for cost, and so on, we felt the need to re-imagine this most iconic of cycling tools as an heirloom-quality objet d'art. The utmost care has been taken to machine the part using mono-crystalline diamond tooling to get the perfect surface finish, while the final feel of the part benefits from an investigation into more than 20 different styles and depths of knurl so that it will feel 'just-so' in your hands as it provides a lifetime of useful enjoyment. This is truly a tool you will hand down to your children and them in turn onto theirs. The Iconic SILCA Presta Only Head (formerly the 30.0) has been updated during its transition to American production. The highly efficient push-on design securely seals on Presta valves with no levers or buttons to operate. - Iconic Silca Presta Head Design: in use by more pro team and shop mechanics than any other! - 17-4 Stainless Material, 6X the strength and 2X the hardness of Brass - Full Synthetic Elastomer 242 Gasket with 5X the durability of traditional rubber materials - Pressure-amplifying dome geometry uses air pressure to clamp the valve stem - Schrader valve thread on hose side threads into any Schrader compatible hose attachment
Years ago while Josh was working with the Team CSC at the Dauphine Libere, he noticed one of their mechanics using the most amazing little chuck to manage the disc wheel inflation. Unlike anything he had seen before, it was all metal and used a 'lollipop' lever on the side to lock onto the valve stems in disc wheels. The mechanic explained that these were made in Japan and were coveted by all the Euro-Pro mechanics due to their scarcity. So Josh set out to improve the design and make it available to cyclists everywhere. - Full metal construction, guaranteed for 25 years and covered by SILCAShield - Can effectively seal on valve stems as short as 10mm! - Uses SILCA 254 High-Tech Elastomer gasket - Adjustable gasket pre-load allows for a custom fit on any valve as well as compensation for gasket wear - Male Schrader thread fits into any Schrader chuck, or use SILCA Thread-On Schrader Adapter to fit a bare hose - Bullet-proof high-pressure, disc-compatible chuck for high-pressure situations.
This chuck comes from the same vendor who supplied them to SILCA pumps for more than 25 years. It makes a great replacement or addition if you are buying a new Stainless Presta chuck or CP1 Disc Adapter for your older pump. This part is made from nickel-plated brass and uses an o-ring to seal the connection. - Hose barb fits into all SILCA hoses both old and new - Threads onto Schrader valves and all SILCA chucks with male Schrader threads (17-4 Presta chuck, HIRO, and CP1 Disc Adapter) - All metal construction, nickel-plated brass
