SILCA was founded in 1917 by Felice Sacchi just outside of Milan, Italy. The company innovated and grew quickly by innovating as the first company to put gauges on pumps, the first company to produce a true 'high-pressure' frame pump, the first to work with the revolutionary lightweight material plastic after the end of WWII. – I was lucky to be able to co-operate with Chris McDougal on a blog article for Silca Velo.
Borsa. We partnered with Colorado-based Ecologic Designs to create this simple yet stylish limited-edition storage solution for your every day riding essentials. Constructed of upcycled bicycle inner-tubes and upcycled wetsuit neoprene, the Borsa Americano is designed by SILCA and sewn by EcoLogic featuring four internal pockets of various sizes to give you plenty of storage options.
The Ypsilon is SILCA’s take on the unassuming Y-wrench. Pro mechanics, bike shops, and avid home mechanics have long preferred the layout of this tool due to the ergonomic benefits that make it more convenient and more enjoyable to use.
Apron Premio is unlike any before it. Designed in conjunction with Pro-Tour and bike shop mechanics alike. Full 12oz Waxed Duck Canvas with bright red ripstop nylon liner. Unique strap design crosses in back and buckles at the waist to provide a highly tunable fit that feels nearly weightless when wearing the apron for long periods of time.
