What is it?
The Iconic SILCA Presta Chuck in aluminum. The highly efficient push-on design securely seals on Presta valves with no levers or buttons to operate.
Who's it for?
The uncompromising cyclist that demands a gasket that slips onto the valve stem with a positive and satisfying 'click', while unique internal geometry actually utilizes line air pressure to compress the gasket onto the valve stem: the higher you pump, the harder it grips the stem!Why We Designed It | Product Specs | Getting Started
We felt the need to re-imagine this most iconic of cycling tools as an heirloom-quality objet d'art. The utmost care has been taken to machine the part using mono-crystalline diamond tooling to get the perfect surface finish, while the final feel of the part benefits from an investigation into more than 20 different styles and depths of knurl so that it will feel just-so in your hands as it provides a lifetime of useful enjoyment. This is truly a tool you will hand down to your children and them in turn onto theirs.
The Aluminum Presta Head is ready to use when removed from the package. If you would like to learn more about features, functions and maintenance of the SILCA Presta Head, please visit the SILCA resource center.
Have been using the Lyne screw on chuck for several years and had always wanted to try the Silca chuck. VERY Pleased with it. Secures well to valve and stays on…thanks
