The secret is out!
A long-time secret that is said to date back to Cancellara’s 2010 Paris-Roubaix victory and was built by Josh (from Silca Velo) himself, is now available to the masses. That’s right, the “Truth” which was a secret only known to the top, inner circle of the world tour mechanics is now available for you. Introducing the new Silca Velo Truth Gauge.
Silca says that each Truth Gauge starts with a 100% USA-made digital pressure gauge which is temperature and humidity compensating, using medical-grade 316l stainless steel, wetted components for a long time trouble-free lifespan.
The Truth Gauges, according to Silca, use custom sensor calibration, where each gauge is calibrated to a perfect accuracy at 30psi. They say this guarantees 0.2% accuracy between 0 and 60psi with the accuracy drifting to 0.5% at 100psi and 1% at 200psi.
Silca claims that, “This sensor curve fit is unique amongst digital gauges, all of which have slightly non-linear behavior over their full-scale reading. By calibrating to 30psi instead of 0psi, we are able to produce much higher accuracies at low pressures than traditional designs.”
Each Truth Gauge is further fitted with a 6al/4v 3D printed titanium body and aluminum twist style bleed valve. This twist-style bleed valve is capable of bleeding air as slow as 0.1psi per minute, according to Silca.
The Truth Gauge is encased in a molded, high-impact, silicone housing and uses a single 9v battery, which is included. The battery life is prolonged with an auto shut-off after being left idle for 20 minutes. Silca says the gauge has an impressive 1200-hour battery life.
