2023 Silca Mensola Computer Mount, Bead Blasted TitaniumSilca
What is it?
MENSOLA is the world's smartest computer mount, designed by the wind and manufactured in 6Al/4V Titanium by lasers. Each MENSOLA is designed for your specific stem face-plate geometry, ensuring minimum weight and maximum strength and improved aerodynamics over the previous computer mount solutions.
Who's it for?
MENSOLA is for the discerning cyclist looking for the strongest and most beautiful mounting solution for their computer. MENSOLA improves aerodynamics at the front of the bike while also de-cluttering the handlebars
Why We Designed It:
The vision for MENSOLA started with a question ... "What if we could remove traditional manufacturing constraints from the design of a computer mount?" Does anybody really want an extra clamp on their handlebar? Clearly NO, but traditional manufacturing constraints have made it impractical to make all of the sizes necessary to sell a mount that will work with all of the various stem face-plate geometries.
The solution here comes to us in the form of 3D printing, which gives us the ability to manufacture practically any geometry without limitations of tooling or raw material stock sizes. With what is essentially unlimited design opportunity, the engineers then set their sights on making the strongest, most beautiful, and functional mount ever seen. Borrowing structural design elements from architectural and aerospace engineering, the team at SILCA was able to use a stressed-skin design with internal truss elements. The result is a mount that is 10-15% lighter than aluminum mounts manufactured by CNC techniques, while also being 6-12 times stronger than those same aluminum designs. The stressed skin also allows for aerodynamic design elements to be used resulting in a reduced drag coefficient compared to previous designs.
Each MENSOLA is printed in 6Al/4V titanium in our Indianapolis facility and matched with the highest aerospace grade 6Al/4V Titanium hardware for mounting to your stem. Weights range from 27gm to 36gm depending on the bolt spacing of your stem or hardpoints of your integrated handlebar. Please consult our fitment guide to determine fitment for your bicycle.

The MENSOLA Computer Mount is bolted to the packaging. Remove bolts and mount. All Mensola mounts ship in the Garmin configuration, to change to Wahoo style mount, remove the center bolt and rotate the mounting puck 90 degrees so that the tab fits in the left hand side slot. Use a SILCA gear wipe and/or Microfiber towel for cleaning.
