Lifetime Warranty

SILCA LIFETIME WARRANTY

The SILCA Lifetime Warranty covers products from manufacturing defects for the lifetime of the user.  It further covers the function of all hard parts for 7 years from the date of purchase.  Expected wear and tear is not covered.  Learn more about warranties.

     The pressure clamps used on contemporary workstands were developed for round steel tubing more than 40 years ago, predating carbon fiber, aluminum, aerodynamic and oversized tube shapes, integrated seat masts, dropper posts, and suspension systems.

    These legacy designs assume your bicycle tubing to be both round and straight, and when it is not, the clamp can impart very high point loads at the clamp edges causing finish damage, internal carbon layup damage or outright crushing of tubes on the lightest designs.

    With Hirobel, specially shaped, paint friendly cones and bindings cradle the frame at the tube intersections, where wall thicknesses are higher and forces can be distributed over much larger surface areas. Adjustable and adaptable for any possible frame design, the Hirobel also allows the repair stand clamp to be located closer to the bicycle center of gravity, improving stability and eliminating bouncing of the bike during heavier work while also locating the drivetrain consistently higher for the mechanic improving visibility while reducing back strain.  Covered by SILCA's Lifetime Warranty.

    Elegant utility

    This now lives in my workstand and holds everything from BMX, BSOs, all the way up to carbon frames. Works fine with MTB and road triangles too. In my Feedback stand what I particularly like about it is I can clamp the bar to the stand, and then place the bike on the bar, adjusting the QR end of the clamp accordingly. As awesome as the Feedback clamp is it's hard to shoulder a bike and operate it one handed, particularly at the elevated working heights possible with that stand. Initially I found the QR done up very tight and I wasn't sure how to operate it (don't pull it up, just loosen as you would any other fastener. It looks like the position of the silicon bumpers can also be easily adjusted with an allen key, which I may do as they're quite tight to turn.

    Overall I expect this to last me many years. Effectively what it gets you is the benefit of a "Sprint" style front fork stand but with none of the downsides of that style of stand.

    Everyone with a work stand needs this.

    This thing is amazing! The Hiorbel makes makes my Park stand soooooo much more versatile and easy to use. Fast too!

    Handy to have

    Works great. My only gripe with it is it is hard to hook the strap on the button to hold it but it’s not the end of the world. Still beats clamping on carbon.

    Love my new Frame Clamp!

    My new Hirobel Frame Clamp worked great. I finally got to wash my bike today after several very cold and windy days. This was the first time I used my new Frame Clamp and I'm very pleased with it. My new bike is a Trek Domane SL5 and it is difficult to hold the bike in my work stand by the seat post and I didn't want to clamp on the top tube. I asked my local bike shop how they would hold my bike in their stands and they said they would just hang the bike on the stand. That didn't sound too good to me. Maybe they should buy a Hirobel Frame Clamp also. Thanks Silca. BTW, the picture is before the wash.

    Good product. Just needs a few refinements to be 5-star.

    I love how secure it holds my bikes in the stand, even if the rubber straps are very hard to get snapped in place. Perhaps they will loosen up over time, but a smaller metal snap would also do the trick. Also, the rubber cradles could use some updating to accommodate newer aero top-tubes, but it fits well enough I suppose. I'm guessing there could be three different top-tube profiles engineered into the rubber cradle that could be selected with a simple rotation. Currently, there seems to only be two profiles, both of which do not fit my bike well. Overall, I feel it was a good purchase, if a bit expensive. If the suggestions I stated above were implemented, the cost of ~$150 would be a no-brainier.
