Years ago while Josh was working with the Team CSC at the Dauphine Libere, he noticed one of their mechanics using the most amazing little chuck to manage the disc wheel inflation. Unlike anything he had seen before, it was all metal and used a 'lollipop' lever on the side to lock onto the valve stems in disc wheels. The mechanic explained that these were made in Japan and were coveted by all the Euro-Pro mechanics due to their scarcity. So Josh set out to improve the design and make it available to cyclists everywhere. - Full metal construction, guaranteed for 25 years and covered by SILCAShield - Can effectively seal on valve stems as short as 10mm! - Uses SILCA 254 High-Tech Elastomer gasket - Adjustable gasket pre-load allows for a custom fit on any valve as well as compensation for gasket wear - Male Schrader thread fits into any Schrader chuck, or use SILCA Thread-On Schrader Adapter to fit a bare hose - Bullet-proof high-pressure, disc-compatible chuck for high-pressure situations.
The unique bright red gasket borrows from industries that require air-tight seals in the harshest of environments and tests to a life expectancy of more than 5X the carbon-filled rubber or Buna-N materials. The 252 gasket mates with a new compression head design allowing the user to tighten the gasket fit by nearly 200% with a simple twist of the cap. In tests with a major disc wheel manufacturer, the SILCA Disc Adapter literally blew away the field by posting a blow-off pressure of 393 psi, more than 3X the pressure achieved by any competing design. - CNC'd 6061 aluminum alloy construction - Knurled gripping surfaces - Threads into any Schrader pump head - Easily replaceable gasket
This chuck comes from the same vendor who supplied them to SILCA pumps for more than 25 years. It makes a great replacement or addition if you are buying a new Stainless Presta chuck or CP1 Disc Adapter for your older pump. This part is made from nickel-plated brass and uses an o-ring to seal the connection. - Hose barb fits into all SILCA hoses both old and new - Threads onto Schrader valves and all SILCA chucks with male Schrader threads (17-4 Presta chuck, HIRO, and CP1 Disc Adapter) - All metal construction, nickel-plated brass
