Silca Tubeless Valve Kit
After struggling with heavy brass valves and fragile, lightweight aluminum valves, Silca has developed their own. Their rendition on the a tubeless valve is extracted from an cold drawn aluminum bar, these valves aren’t as light as the lightest but aren’t as heavy as the brass stems either, yet they flaunt a 50-200% stronger than any other aluminum valve stem. Along with the valves come their Speed Shield which prevents carbon rims from being damage by the valve nut and helps eliminate valve stem failures.
