One of the first things you notice in the toolboxes of top-level motorsport or Pro-Tour mechanics is extremely high-quality hex keys. The reasoning is simple; better tool fit leads to better feel and confidence for the mechanic as well as a significant reduction in the likelihood of damaging exotic fasteners made from titanium or aluminum. For the HX-ONE, we use the finest S2 tool steel; shock-resistant steel which has been refined by toolmakers for the optimal balance of strength, hardness, shock resistance, and dimensional control. The keys are then coated with thin-dense chrome and a high-grip, high-visibility textured polymer finish for maximum grip and control. Included with the HX-One Home Essential Kit is the proprietary SILCA 17-4 Stainless Magnetic Adapter. The adapter turns the 6mm hex key into a 1/4" bit driver. - Fully CNC-machined beechwood box with magnetic closure - S2 steel hex keys: 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 10mm - Red polymer coating for superior grip on hex keys - Custom S2 stainless steel bit adaptor: 6mm to standard 1/4" bit - S2 steel Torx bits: T8, T10, T15, T20, T25, and T30 - S2 steel Screw bits: PH1, PH2, SL4, and SL5
Few tools are used as frequently and can cause as much heartache or wasted time as the seemingly simple Hex and Torx keys. It's one of the first things you notice at the top levels of motorsport tools, or in the toolboxes of Pro-Tour mechanics: extremely high-quality tools. The reasoning is simple, better tool fit leads to better feel and confidence for the mechanic as well as a significant reduction in the likelihood of damaging exotic fasteners made from titanium or aluminum. - High-strength S2 steel tools - Precise tool interface dimensions - Polymer coating for superior grip - Laser-etched size indication - Compact tool holder - Hex Wrenches: 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10mm - Torx Wrenches: T7, T8, T9, T10, T15, T20, T25, T27, T30 - PLEASE NOTE: The T7 tool features a 100-degree bend rather than a 90-degree for improved control and access to very small fasteners
Hirobel is a specially designed clamp for bicycle repair stands that makes it easier to work on your bike. It better distributes stresses and loads through the bicycle frame, offering superior stability while eliminating possible crushing or damage to thin-walled and shaped tubing. The pressure clamps used on contemporary workstands were developed for round steel tubing more than 40 years ago, predating carbon fiber, aluminum, aerodynamic and oversized tube shapes, integrated seat masts, dropper posts, and suspension systems. These legacy designs assume your bicycle tubing to be both round and straight, and when it is not, the clamp can impart very high point loads at the clamp edges causing finish damage, internal carbon layup damage, or outright crushing of tubes on the lightest designs. With Hirobel, specially shaped, paint-friendly cones and bindings cradle the frame at the tube intersections, where wall thicknesses are higher and forces can be distributed over much larger surface areas. Adjustable and adaptable for any possible frame design, the Hirobel also allows the repair stand clamp to be located closer to the bicycle center of gravity. This improves stability and eliminates bouncing of the bike during heavier work while also locating the drivetrain consistently higher for the mechanic, improving visibility while reducing back strain.
The Italian Army Knife VENTI builds on the flat design, forged mid-length tools, and Stainless Steel hardware of our award-winning line of Italian Army Knives. Adding new tools including the most ergonomic and functional chain breaker ever featured in a portable multi-tool, the VENTI has everything you need. The unique magnetic slide-lock design of the VENTI chain-tool allows it to be more than twice as long as other designs for exceptional ergonomics in use, while also allowing it to be removed completely from the tool for improved functionality. The forged mid-length tools are long enough to reach all common cycling fasteners, but not so long that they twist or deform under load. The ergonomic side plates also hold a discreet magnetic storage feature for a spare master link and all tools are coated with SILCA's unique high-grip chrome plating which provides better torque transfer at the bolt interface. - Metal injection sidebars with knurled grip surface and stainless steel hardware - Forged chain breaker for 10-12 speed chain - Magnetic storage for 10-12 speed compatible chain connectors - Forged and plated tools: - Hex 2/2.5/3/4/5/6/8 - Torx 8/10/20/25 - PH2/SL4 - 7mm box wrench - 8mm flare nut wrench - 10mm open-end wrench - Disc pad spreader - Valve core remover - Spoke wrenches—13G / 15G - 172 grams
Modern carbon rims and tires create a real challenge for traditional tire levers, and the new wave of tubeless setups have taken the challenge to the next level. Tire fits are tighter than they've ever been, while carbon rims require non-metal levers to resist damage to the bead or brake surface during use. Previous solutions to this problem have involved using a metal core inside of a plastic lever however, this solution has its own challenges as the core of the lever is where you can add the least stiffness and strength. This leaves metal core levers both less stiff and heavier than they need to be. - Forged alloy blade - Reinforced nylon Rim Shield safe for use on carbon rims - Integrated spoke-hook wing - 105mm x 25mm x 7mm (Perfect for Seat Roll Premio or EOLO Wallet) - Weight (Two levers and neoprene sleeve)—36 grams
The YPSILON (pronounced ip.si.lon) is SILCA's take on the unassuming Y-wrench. Most tools in this layout feature 4mm, 5mm, and 6mm keys; meaning that the wrenches for some of the most common use cases in cycling are readily available in one tool. The shape of the Y-wrench also offers superior control and stability over traditional hex keys, especially in tighter workspaces. Ypsilon was designed by a team of engineers and mechanics who obsess over improving products. The body of the tool is constructed using a composite polymer with soft over-mold grips. Unlike traditional Y-wrench designs, YPSILON is customizable and adaptable to the mechanic's preferences. This is accomplished by using a 1/4" bit collet with magnetic bit attachment in place of a fixed 6mm hex. This departure from the traditional Y-wrench design was inspired by the versatility of our T-Ratchet + Ti Torque kit. The YPSILON can easily transform into any required 1/4" based tool by swapping out the bit. - High-strength CrV steel spine leading to 4mm and 5mm hex - Lightweight composite polymer body with ergonomic grips - 1/4" bit collet with magnetic bit attachment
