SILCA was founded in 1917 just outside of Milan and has spent over 100 years producing some of the best quality cycling gear available. Like Brompton, they believe that perfection is found in the details and that the best things in life are designed beautifully and last forever. While our Brompton Toolkit – which tucks right in the frame – is the best solution for on-road maintenance, the Brompton Home Tool Set by SILCA offers you a professional grade set of tools for home maintenance and tuning of your Brompton and any other bike you may own and love. Here’s a bit more about the toolset from SILCA...
“One of the first things you notice in the toolboxes of top level motorsport or Pro-Tour mechanics are 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; a 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 ESSENTIAL KIT is the proprietary SILCA 17-4 Stainless Magnetic Adapter. The adapter turns the 6mm hex key into a ¼” bit driver.”
