Silca HX-One Home and Travel Essential Kit

A beautifully-crafted tool kit ready to add a touch of class to your maintenance arsenal

Your best bike deserves the best kit. That much is clear, we think, but we also think its meaning stretches to using the best accessories and tools on your prized machine too.

The Silca HX-One tool kit is one such set of tools, and includes all the essential bits and pieces you’ll likely need to perform many maintenance and assembly tasks. It includes 2mm, 2.5mm, 3mm, 4mm, 5mm, 6mm, 8mm, 10mm hex keys fashioned from high-quality and hard-wearing steel with a chrome head coating, and a magnetic bit adaptor.

That adaptor converts the 6mm hex key into a handle for the 10 supplied driver bits, that include two sizes of flathead and Philips screwdriver heads apiece, and Torx heads in T8, T10, T15, T20, T25 and T30 sizes. Got it? Good.

Now, trouble with these plentiful bits it, inevitably, they get lost from time to time. And, being generally small units, it’s unlikely you ever find them again. Thankfully, Silca have put as much thought into the carry case as they clearly have into the quality of the bits themselves.

Silca HX-One Home and Travel Essential Kit

Inside, there are fast-holding and clearly marked spots for each of your bits, which makes losing them not only difficult, but seriously undesirable if you’ve a bit of a obsessive streak, all precision drilled into the beechwood case that magnetically shuts securely. Overall, the finish is superb – as you’d expect from a product that costs £120.

Some things in the bike industry are – over and above their design function – a simple pleasure to own. With that in mind, if we had to spend our money on such a good-looking, high-quality essential set of tools, then the Silca HX-One Home and Travel Essential Kit would be the one.
