The SILCA Hirobel Bike Clamp - Superior Stability In The Repair Stand 

March 5th 2019 - SILCA announces today that it has acquired Hirobel Cycling Solutions and moved production to SILCA HQ in Indianapolis. Hirobel’s primary product is the Hirobel Frame Clamp, an innovative solution to the problems presented in mounting modern bikes to repair stands.

 


THE PROBLEM

The pressure clamps used on contemporary repair stands were developed for round steel tubing more than 40 years ago. This predates carbon fiber, aluminum, aerodynamic and oversized tube shapes, integrated seat masts, dropper posts, and suspension systems.

 THE SOLUTION

 The HIROBEL is a specially designed clamp for bicycle repair stands which makes it easier to work on your bike. It better distributes stresses and loads through the bicycle frame, offering superior stability while eliminating possible crushing or damage to thin-walled and shaped tubing.

"We see more clamp damage than people might think. The seat tube and the top tube are the most likely candidates for damaged due to the advancements in aerodynamic shaping and geometries. Often the top tube is one of the thinnest tubes on any bicycle. Also the forces from working on a stuck crank arm or bottom bracket while it is in a work stand can generate damaging forces. One of the benefits of the Hirobel is that the system holds the bicycle frame in two locations that are significantly thicker and spread the support forces out into a stronger area of the frame."
