Best Overall Bar Tape Winner

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.

Comfy and Grippy

So far this bar tape has been great. I've using it while on 50 miles rides and while using the bike on a stationary trainer. It provides plenty of cushion support and the right amount of grip.

The Best

My second Cuscino, and this one went on easier than the first. Like the thickness of the tape and the absorption of road chatter is the best.

excellent tape

After watching the video by Josh on applying the tape, and the comments therein about don't be afraid to really pull on the tape as you won't break it, I got a great tight wrap on the bar, and a fantastic feel back on the road! Thanks!

This tape is a game changer

For two years through the Covid pandemic, I have been fighting with my bar tape. I ride 170 miles per week or so and that's mostly commuting to work. Often, I'll ride more on the weekends. After fighting with my third botched installation of $20 bar tape from REI, I finally gave in and had a bike mechanic wrap my bars for me. I decided to splurge and drop $50 on this Nastro Cuscino tape and WOW does it make a difference.

Honestly I think most Silca products are overpriced status items* so I was hesitant to buy. But this tape? I have one word to describe it: bulletproof.

This is the most comfortable tape I've ever had on my handlebars since I started cycling regularly, which was over 10 years ago. 10 miles in the saddle? 100? No problem! It's grippy as all heck on even the hottest, most humid days without gloves. It's as plush as a La-Z-Boy chair. The finishing strip hasn't gone wonky on me, and *the tape hasn't moved a hair* since I had it wrapped. The outer coating on this tape protects it from any kind of blemishes if I lean the bike against walls, etc.

This tape just *feels* great. I love it. Yeah I spent $80 at my local bike shop to have new bar tape installed but I know the tape is going to last forever. When I finally wear it out (if I don't die or sell the bike first!) I'm definitely going to buy another box. Please, Silca: never stop making this tape! I'm a customer for life!

* Sorry, Silca. Change my mind. Send me a seat bag to review :)
