SILCA is again expanding its successful line of titanium 3D printed products with the Chisela, a sleek computer mount for Wahoo and Garmin bike computers. It leverages cutting edge aerodynamic development, 3D printing, and state-of-the-art ceramic coating for the cleanest airflow possible, whilst staying lightweight and strong.
The Chisela features a unique ‘T-Tray’ mounting system inspired by the T shaped underfloor of an F1 race car. This allows for quick-release style attachment of lights or cameras and offers more versatility for those who need it. Just slide until you hear the click to install and then pull on the lever to slide off the accessory mount. Best of all, the T-Tray system adds virtually no additional weight and has no aerodynamic penalty while adding functionality.
Chisela offers two adjustable sizes (standard and wide) and fits almost every handlebar stem with front-facing bolts. Additional Chisela designs have been developed, as well, to accommodate integrated stems/handlebar brands, like Madone, Cervélo, Fizik, 3T, Specialized, and Black Inc. The Metron FSA 5D/6D is also a custom option for those riding like the EF Pro Cycling team.
3D printing enables SILCA to remove traditional manufacturing barriers, 3D printing allows for unique, gyroid or hollow geometries inside to provide the strong infrastructure needed to handle the load for the computer and accessory mount. Adding to the charm and durability, SILCA coats Chisela in Cerakote black. It’s a special ceramic coating for use in aerospace, military, and biomedical applications. This high-performance ceramic coating increases abrasion resistance by more than 100 times while increasing corrosion resistance more than 1000 times over traditional metal finishes and paint coatings.
The Chisela is available on SILCA’s website for $125 USD.
