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, 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.
I used the Aero Bar Tape on my daughter's TT bike, and we are really happy with how well it grips, even when compared to regular bar tape. It adds a degree of confidence when riding a type of bike requires your full attention.
Everything you need for a TT, just enough grip, and just enough cushion for those hard efforts on the track
I put this on my Deda aerobars. I wanted to feel more secure when holding the "skis" during pursuit and hour rides on the velodrome.
