NASTRO FIORE BAR TAPE

23 reviews

What is it?

NASTRO FIORE is a 2.5mm thick tape that provides cushioning and comfort equivalent to 3.2mm tapes of existing technologies. FIORE has a moderate texture, high tackiness, and printed silicone graphics which adds comfort and grip in both wet and dusty conditions.

Who's it for?

NASTRO FIORE is for the detail oriented cyclist looking for additional comfort without the additional bulk commonly associated with thick bar tapes. Fiore also adds a subtle color pop through contrasting high grip silicone printing, as well as the Butterfly clamp wrap for perfect bar taping every time.

Why We Designed It | Product Specs


Why We Designed It:

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.

 

Specifications:

  • Ultra Performance 2.5mm thick Tri-Laminate design delivers equivalent cushioning to 3.2mm tapes
  • Debossed FIORE pattern plus embossed FIORE silicone printing for improved grip and cushioning
  • Aluminum expanding bar-end plug
  • PU finishing tape
  • Butterfly shaped brake clamp cover
  • Limited Warranty & Crash Replacement Program

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.
