Silca

Cycling Passion, Precision and Performance

For the Cyclist at Heart

Silca's legendary craftsmanship has long been appreciated by generations of cyclists and they have always been an aspirational product.

In 1917 Felice Sacchi founded SILCA just outside of Milan, Italy. The aim of Felice's company was to produce bicycle pumps of unrivalled quality that would perform beautifully for years.

Sacchi's approach seems almost alien with today's proliferation of mass-produced, price-focused goods that, more often than not, do a mediocre job for a short period of time.

Silca operated out of a desire to create the perfect pump, not only beautiful but supremely functional. Manufactured from the finest components and built with care and attention to detail that stem from pride and passion. If you are a fervent cycling fan then you may know of Silca - you may own a Silca pump, and if you do, you probably love it.

By 2013 Silca were the oldest company in the bicycle industry to have been continually owned by the same family. Sadly, the failing health of Claudio, Felice's Grandson and a market with a dwindling appreciation of quality, meant that the company needed to be sold.

Sharing the same values as the Sacchi family and promising to honour the marque, the company was purchased by Josh Poertner, previously Technical Director at Zipp in Indianapolis, where Silca is now based.

Josh is keen to revive the quality-first approach. Creating a new market within a very old and established market - a place entirely based on cost and price - taking it in another direction, and bringing technology, craftsmanship and quality back in.

"Each and every SILCA component is designed for beauty, function, strength, durability, and longevity before it is carefully produced by hand to the highest standards. We take great pride in upholding the 100 year history of this brand."

Silca's approach is something we have great affinity for and is an ethos we share at 700. Josh's sentiments are analogous to our own and we are extremely excited to be stocking Silca in-depth, hoping to build that appreciation for quality with a new generation of cycling aficionados.
