Silca Ypsilon Y-Wrench Home Essentials Kit in Birch Wood Box Information

Brand : Silca

Code : SIAMTL002ASY0100

The ypsilon (pronounced ip.Si.Lon) is Silca's take on the unassuming Y-wrench. Pro mechanics, bike shops and avid home mechanics have long preferred the layout of this tool due to the ergonomic benefits that make it more convenient and more enjoyable to use. Most tools in this layout feature 4mm 5mm and 6mm keys; meaning that the wrenches for some of the most common use cases in cycling are readily available in one tool. The shape of the Y-wrench also offers superior control and stability over traditional hex keys especially in tighter work spaces.

Like everything silca do the Ypsilon was designed by a team of engineers and mechanics who obsess over every fine detail. Unlike traditional Y-wrench designs, the Ypsilon is customizable and adaptable to the mechanic's preferences. Silca were able to do this by using a 1/4" bit collet with magnetic attachment in place of the 6mm hex wrench. This departure from the traditional Y-wrench design was inspired by the versatility of their T-ratchet + Ti Torque kit and means that the Ypsilon can easily transform into any tool you need by swapping out the bit. The other two ends of the tool are the more commonly used 4mm and 5mm hex keys.

Another key benefit of the Ypsilon - and one you might expect given Silc's historic form when it comes to tool production -  is the tight tolerances of the keys and bits. Tighter tolerances mean a better tool fit which drastically decreases the likelihood of rounding out fastener heads. These tight tolerances combined with the CRV steel spine of the tool make the Ypsilon incredibly durable. A lightweight composite body with ergonomic grips provides good comfort and control with the contact points of your hand.

There are 3 variations available :

Ypsilon home essentials kit - the Ypsilon Home kit was inspired by Silca's renowned HX-One Home Essentials Kit and come's in a custom birchwood box complete with a range of hex torx and screw bits that sit in a customizable foam insertion.

Ypsilon travel kit - the Ypsilon travel kit comes with everything that the home kit comes with minus the box!
