To elevate your entire cycling experience by designing products that incorporate innovative technology, old world craftsmanship, and an unparalleled customer experience
We’ve all experienced those brief moments of perfection that happen while out on a ride. We’ve heard the perfect silence of a finely tuned road bike, we’ve taken that difficult corner just perfectly during the local cross race, and we’ve all had that perfect few hours out on the bike. And we’re always in pursuit of more of those little moments that make this sport of ours so beautiful.
Ultimately, we believe that perfection can be found (and sometimes created) in the details of everything that any of us do. Our commitment to you, we will continue that pursuit of perfection in everything we do.
From continually investing in state of the art technology, sourcing the finest materials from all over the world, and never cutting corners, we will be forever in pursuit of bringing you a little slice of perfection.
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. More recently, the company was first with a valve controlled CO2 inflator, and with some irony, the first to move away from plastics and back to wood handles. Along the way, the company ideals became deeply rooted in a combination of durable materials, traditional craftsmanship, and innovation. It is no accident that so many of the SILCA pumps of the 1960's and 70's are still in use today, nor is it accidental that we continue to sell replacement parts for those very pumps.
