A Comprehensive Selection of Precision S2 Steel Bits
The YPSILON (pronounced ip.si.lon) Home Kit is SILCA's take on the unassuming Y-wrench. Most tools in this layout feature 4mm, 5mm and 6mm keys; meaning that the wrenches for some of the most common use cases in cycling are readily available in one tool. The shape of the Y-wrench also offers superior control and stability over traditional hex keys, especially in tighter work areas where space is at a premium.
Ypsilon was designed by a team of engineers and mechanics who obsess over improving products. The body of the tool is constructed using a composite polymer with soft over-mold grips. Unlike traditional Y-wrench designs, YPSILON is customizable and adaptable to the mechanic's preferences.
This is accomplished by using a quarter-inch bit collet with magnetic bit attachment in place of a fixed 6mm hex. This departure from the traditional Y-wrench design was inspired by the versatility of Silca's T-Ratchet + Ti Torque kit.
The YPSILON can easily transform into any required 1/4" based tool by swapping out the bit.
