Silca’s Launch of 3D Printed Titanium Derailleur Hangers – New in the Market


0

Silca, well-known for its Tour de France Stage-winning 3D printed titanium derailleur hangers, has presented the newest upgrade of their offerings. Initially designed for Shimano drivetrains, the hangers are now universal fits for nine leading road and gravel bicycle manufacturers.

Made to enhance the shifting experience on WorldTour road bicycles, Silca’s 3D printed titanium hangers guarantee quicker and more precise shifts. This innovation comes from improving on conventional hangers’ issues, which often distort during shifting, leading to inaccuracy and noise during gear changes.

Silca professes a substantial enhancement, stating that their direct mount titanium hanger provides 8-10 times higher rigidity than standard aluminum hangers. For bicycles compatible with UDH, the hollow 3D-printed titanium hanger claims to have 5-6 times the stiffness of ordinary aluminum hangers.

Priced at $85 for universal fits and $99 for UDH-compatible versions, these titanium hangers are available for nine leading bike brands. The expanded range includes 100-series direct mounts for Shimano and 200-series universal fits compatible with SRAM, Campagnolo, and other drivetrains.

Silca points out the sacrificial nature of these 3D-printed hangers, which are designed to break before the frame, ensuring the bike’s longevity. The internal structure is engineered to provide necessary flexibility while maintaining overall stiffness.

Silca’s latest 3D printed titanium derailleur hangers cater to a broader audience, offering enhanced shift precision for road, gravel, and mountain bikes. The expanded range and improved compatibility make these hangers a compelling upgrade for cyclists seeking superior performance in gear shifting.
