At SILCA, one of our strongest beliefs is in the protection in your investment and more importantly, in the protection of yourself.  Bar Tape should be replaced at least every year for the best performance and for safety checks of corrosion on aluminum bars or damage to carbon bars.  We want to make sure that you are covered by providing the first crash replacement program for bar tape.



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.

    Great bar tape for the Gravel Bike

    I don't really like bar tapes that are too thick, like the 5 mm stuff mainly chosen for Gravel riding. With the Nastro Cuscino 3.75 you get the same amount of cushioning and have the dampening effect desired for off-road riding, without the bulky look of 5 mm tape. It's nice and tacky and makes for a secure grip even in wet or hot & sweaty conditions. The cushioning and exceptional grip is especially great since I don't like riding with gloves.

    The butterfly strips to cover the clamp are genius. Add high quality bar end plugs and the higher price is justified and completely worth the superior experience - even compared to other high-end bar tapes.

    Very comfortable and looks great

    After getting numb hands with other bar tapes for years, I decided to switch to the Nastro Cuscino bar tape. Following the instructions in the Silca how-to video closely, wrapping was straight-forward and I'm happy with the result. It looks good, has a secure grip in dry and wet conditions, and I think that it is the most comfortable bar tape I've used so far. So all in all it sure is expensive but worth it.
