SILCA 3D Printed Titanium Bike Tools

SILCA 3D printed titanium titanium bike tools, ultra-light professional shop tools for the most discerning mechanic.

SILCA has taken the lightweight tool revolution to an entirely new level. Removing traditional manufacturing barriers, 3D printing allows for unique, hollow geometries inside of tools, lattice structures, and internal trussing specific to the loads seen in the tools, all while further reducing weight.

Each piece 3D printed tool retails for $150.00 or $175.00 custom engraved. Learn more at silca.cc.

In all of Josh’s years working with ProTour teams, he’s carried a LOT of gear. If there’s one constant in pro cycling, it’s the daily set-up and tear-down of the mobile bike shop the team mechanics call home. Over the years, he has appreciated the trend toward lighter, more multi-functional tools that focused on lightening the toolbox (especially for those long cyclocross pit hauls!).

3D printed in hardened 6/4 Ti, this lockring tool weighs only 45 grams.  The handle is printed with spiral rifle reinforcements inspired by Columbus SLX tubing, and the tool head has 2 spline patterns to accommodate both Shimano/SRAM and Campagnolo lockrings.  While not as hard as tool steel, hardened 6/4 is harder and stronger than the steels used in many traditional cycling tools, and is 4-6 times harder and stronger than the aluminum used in high end lockrings.  Just as with it’s matching chain whip, this tool is designed to be used on well maintained bikes and is NOT compatible with cheater bars

Repeat after me, that pedal wrench is NOT a hammer!  Every pro mechanic I know carries a machinist hammer, and over the years, most of these have gone titanium to save weight in the tool case.  This hammer is 3D printed in hardened 6/4 Titanium with a hollow head that we fill with 125 grams of fine stainless steel and fine tungsten grit, giving it higher impact energy than a solid titanium head, while also eliminating any recoil.  The hammerhead is hard titanium on one side and medium-hard rubber on the other for use on delicate surfaces.
