Silca - T-Ratchet + Ti-Torque kit
In the summer of 2016, Silca started a crowdfunding project for the development of the T-Ratchet + Ti-Torque kit. This project was a great success. Over 1200% was funded on Kickstarter.
Roughly 70% of damage to high-end carbon and titanium bikes and components, such as seat posts, handlebars and stems, comes when making adjustments without using torque. As you might set up your ride or component at home using a torque tool, it is to be expected that you want to make some adjustments while testing your ride. Too low of a torque makes cycling dangerous. Too high a torque may damage your bike.
T-Ratchet and Ti-Torque solve this by providing a highly ergonomic tool with a torque measuring extender that provides real time feedback to the torque you are tightening to. Simply begin tightening the fastener while watching the scale on the Ti-Torque.
The T-Ratchet uses interchangeable magnetic components to convert from screwdriver to ratchet, to ratcheting T-Handle in seconds, and the Ti-Torque is made from titanium and aluminum with hard steel contact surfaces allowing it to weight only 30 grams! The tools are housed in a hardwearing hand-stitched waxed canvas and ripstop nylon case.
The T-Ratchet + Ti-Torque kit is now available for order.
