 Inspired by advancements in running shoe foam and F1 tires as well as our own research into rolling efficiency, impedance and damping, we realized that new materials technology could allow for a significant improvement in bar tape. Using a laminate of SILCAthane, SILCAlon and 3M Visco-elastic adhesive instead of a single foam extrusion, the tape can be optimized across a range of desired features. The resulting tape has a softer, more comfortable feel, higher wet and dry grip, better vibration isolation, and 3-5x the durability of existing tape materials. Since the actual wrap of the tape can be as important as the tape itself, we’ve also developed a full adhesive backed ‘butterfly’ to better cover the back of the lever clamp area without adding bulk, a high grip finishing tape and expanding aluminum/composite end plugs to ensure every detail is perfect.

The quality I expect from Silca.

Assuming this tape lasts a while it will be the best I have tried. I did a 44 mile ride after wrapping my handlebars and my hands felt just as good at the end of the ride as they did at the start, this was the day after doing a 55 mile ride with Supacaz so I was expecting at least some soreness. I believe that Silca does try to put the very best product possible on the market and this tape is another shining example of that, from the end plugs to the finishing tape this stuff just looks and feels amazing. I’ve read reviews about it being difficult to wrap but I did not have an issue, I have been wrapping my own bars for a few years so my technique is pretty good. The only other tape I can compare it to is Supacaz but I found this to be more forgiving with a bit more stretch and a more durable feel. The grip is excellent and it seems the claims of vibration damping are true, as I mentioned my hands felt great the whole time and it wasn’t all smooth roads by any means. I had enough to cover my 44cm deep drop bars but I did have to go back and do less of an overlap on the first attempt, thankfully there was enough for the figure eight wrap around the hoods as well. I might not have needed the butterfly tape for the hoods but I’m glad they were there, it’s just another example of Silca’s attention to detail.

Great Bar Tape

I've used this bar tape three times in a row and have had a great experience with it. No complaints. There is a great amount of cushion given it isn't very thick and it has excellent tacky grip. I've tried the all black and the black with white fiore and both have a very clean, pro look. No problems with wrapping, just make sure to tug hard.

Smooth Ride

I usually use thicker tape so when I went on my first ride with the fiore tape it felt skinny and I was unsure how well it would soak up road vibration. Turns out it cuts out the majority of the high frequency road buzz and feels amazing, another major point is that it's super grippy and inspires much more sprinting confidence than thick and squishy tapes. Yes it's pricier than most and you should take your time to install it properly, but I can only say from my experience that it's a winner.

It works

Now on my second set of Fiore tape. Been pretty happy with the tape. Seems comfortable for road and gravel. Big ups to the finishing tape (the bit that is supplied to finish the wrap). I had to remove and rewrap back to the shifter about 4 times on the first lot of tape. That black finishing tape just kept on keeping on. Brilliant.
