A better tool fit leads to better feel and confidence for the mechanic as well as a significant reduction in the likelihood of damaging exotic fasteners made from Titanium or Aluminium. For the HX-One, SILCA had to start with the finest S-2 Tool Steel - a shock resistant steel which has been refined by Swiss and German toolmakers for the optimal balance of strength, hardness, shock resistance and dimensional control. S-2 yields stronger tools with much harder surfaces for prolonged tool AND fastener life. The keys are then coated with thin-dense Chrome, a process generally reserved for mould tool components or optical grade surfaces inside moulding tools. This coating provides the hardest, most dimensionally stable finish possible on each hex key. Finally, each tool is spray coated with a high-grip, high-visibility textured polymer finish for maximum grip and control.
• Fully CNC machined Beechwood box
• S2 steel hex keys - 2mm to 10mm
• Red polymer coating for superior grip on hex keys
• Custom S2 steel bit adaptor to standard 1/4" bit
• Ten S2 steel bits found in every cycling workshop
