Silca expands its range of 3D-printed titanium gearshift eyes

The Italian company Silca has added further models to its portfolio of 3D-printed titanium derailleur hangers for bicycles. The specially manufactured components promise more precise shifting and are said to be more robust than standard aluminum derailleur hangers.

According to the manufacturer, the titanium derailleur hangers are up to 10 times stiffer than standard derailleur hangers thanks to their optimized topology. This should ensure significantly more precise gear changes and less shifting noise. In addition, the parts are designed to break before the bike frame is damaged.

The current expansion of the range includes compatible models for nine popular bicycle brands, including Shimano, SRAM and Campagnolo. Silca offers both direct-mount and universal versions of the 3D-printed titanium derailleur hangers for prices between 85 and 99 dollars.

According to the manufacturer, the components are suitable for road bikes, gravel bikes and mountain bikes. Thanks to the wider selection and increased compatibility, an even broader target group can benefit from the advantages of the stiffer titanium derailleur hangers, Silca advertises.
