With an incomparable reputation for quality and a long history in the sport, few brands have been more intimately connected to the last 100 years of cycling than Silca.
The Italian-born brand's legacy of legendary quality has seen company's pumps being passed down through generations of professional mechanics and cycling enthusiasts - riders who value the experience of bike maintenance and understand its performance value. Now based in the US, Silca's heirloom quality pumps have been joined by a growing selection of thoughtfully designed and stylish accessories.
Silca's goal is nothing short of creating perfection with every product it produces. Each and every component is designed for beauty, function, strength, durability, and longevity – then carefully produced by hand to the highest standards.
An attractive mix of Italian prestige and modern American engineering, Silca joined Saddleback in September 2014 and has continued to build upon its legacy as creator of the finest pumps and tools in the world.
27-years after the original SuperPista debuted at the 1989 Giro d'Italia, Silca launched this re-imagining of pro-cycling's favourite floor pump.
The modern version maintains many of its predecessor's hallmarks including a large, ergonomic wooden handle, a long barrel for easier inflation and all-metal construction for a lifetime of use in the hands of pro mechanics.
Of course, in bringing the SuperPista back to life, Silca has made many improvements too: a wide, ultra-stable base; 2.5x larger, 50% higher precision gauge and a beautiful new aesthetic.
Few tools are used as frequently, and can cause as much heartache or wasted time as the seemingly simple hex key. It’s one of the first things you notice at the top levels of motorsport or in the toolboxes of World-Tour mechanics: 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 aluminium.
HX-One is Silca's solution for those who appreciate the experience of working on their bike as much as the love riding it.
