PISTA Floor Pump: A Classic Reborn

Anniversary HX-ONE Tool Kit:

To celebrate a century of refined toolmaking for performance cycling, SILCA has released a limited edition set of Anniversary HX-ONE hex keys. The fully forged S2 steel keys are encased in a beautiful and limited edition box made from the  heartwood of American Walnut trees. Each HX-ONE box is adorned with SILCA‘s centennial emblem, hand-painted on 304 stainless steel. SILCA continues to push the envelope, using the finest materials and craftsmanship available.

The HX-ONE has quickly become an icon of the SILCA brand. Made of S-2 Steel, which yields stronger tools with much harder surfaces for prolonged tool life, the keys are then coated with thin-dense Chrome, a process generally reserved for molded tool components or optical grade surfaces. This coating provides the hardest, most dimensionally stable finish possible on each hex key. Finally, each tool is spray coated with a textured polymer finish for maximum grip and control.

Included with the Anniversary HX-One kit is the proprietary SILCA 17-4 Stainless Magnetic Adapter. The Adapter instantly turns the 6mm Hex Key into a ¼” socket drive which can fit any common ¼” driver Bit. Included in the kit are the 6 most common Torx sizes, 2 Phillips Head and 2 Flathead Drivers.
