Società Italiana Lavorazione Celluloide ed Affini (S.I.L.C.A)

SILCA Heritage will share the stories of the S.I.L.C.A. company and users of S.I.L.C.A. products. S.I.L.C.A. has since 1917 supplied more than 1,000,000 floor and frame pumps to enthusiasts around the world who were seeking accurate high-pressure inflation innovations for their bicycles and motorcycles. Many of these original pumps are still being used today by riders today, due to the original high quality design standards, availability of replacement parts, and their interest in using a pump contemporary with their bicycle.
