SILCA Truth Gauge
This gauge is known to all as 'THE TRUTH' and SILCA is thrilled to bring it to market for all and not just a select few WorldTour mechanics. Each TRUTH starts 100% USA-made digital pressure gauge. These gauges are temperature and humidity compensating using only the finest medical-grade 316L stainless steel wetted components and sensors for a lifetime of trouble-free use. The gauges use a custom sensor calibration, where each gauge is calibrated to perfect accuracy at 30.000psi, guaranteeing 0.2% accuracy between 0 and 60psi with accuracy drifting to 0.5% at 100 and 1% at 200psi.
This sensor curve fit is unique amongst digital gauges, all of which have slightly non-linear behavior over their full-scale reading. By calibrating to 30psi instead of 0psi, we are able to produce much higher accuracy at low pressures than traditional designs.
Each TRUTH is further fitted with 6AL/4V 3D printed titanium body and aluminum twist style bleed valve capable of bleeding air as slow as 0.1 psi per minute. 3D printing also allows the internal air passage to be only 0.5mm in diameter for minimal air required to activate the pressure sensor. As a result, the TRUTH only loses 0.1 psi per reading in a 25mm tire at 100 psi compared to as much as 5 psi per reading in other designs.
The TRUTH is encased in a molded high-impact silicone rubber housing and uses a single 9V battery. The gauge has auto shutoff after 20 minutes and a 1200-hour battery life. Temperature range from 0 to 120°F (-1 to 49°C).”
