Price
NASTRO Bar Tape retails at $42usd for Piloti, $46usd for Fiore and $50usd for Cuscino. In the unfortunate event that a crash happens, and replacement of bar tape is needed, the customer will receive a $12 discount ($30, $34, and $38 respectively) for any color variant of the respective bar tape that was purchased (subject to availability).

Where
Please keep the purchase information of your Bar Tape.  If you bought online, please send pictures of the bar tape to sales@silca.cc.  If bought at one of our many retailers, please bring the bike to the shop for replacement.

WHY
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.

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.

Awesome bar tape!

This is the first time I've installed bar tape myself, and I was worried about the results since some people have claimed that Nastro tape is hard to wrap without wrinkles. I found it very easy to work with, following Josh's video instructions which emphasize the importance of pulling HARD on the tape since it doesn't stretch easily. As you can see in the picture, the project turned out great . Not only do I love the looks of the tape (this is my daughter's bike, she selected the color) but it also has a great feel and provides plenty of cushion.

So comfort!!

Comfort as it advertises.!! And very good grip even my hand sweat. One thing to comment that it is a bit too short when roll out onto my 40cm handle bar. I have to stress it quite hard to get it wrap to the end (see picture)

Great tape

Feels great, looks good and was easy to put on. Never taped my own bars before, this tape was easy to use and very forgiving about being done and re-done until I got right.

Inexpensive way to increase bar diameter

I have a drop bar bike from 2003 with 25.4 diameter handlebars. Bars did not feel great with my existing Cinelli Cork tape. The Nastro Cuscino tape increases the diameter of the taped bars so it's about the same as my other road bike with 31.8 bars. Plus I get a nice firm cushioned effect. This tape is tough, but not the easiest stuff to work with. It can be stretched, but requires a pull that would break most other tape. Getting it started cleanly near my bar con shifters was a special challenge. The butterfly tapes in the area behind the hoods is brilliant. Josh posted a tape install video on YouTube that is worth a look before you install $50 worth of new bar tape!

No gloves required

I got the black/ Miami green since it is close to the Celeste color of my Bianchi Infinito CV. I have not work gloves in warm weather in about two years since my hands get too hot. The Nastro Cuscino tape has that little bit extra cushion that makes gloveless great. As the weather turns cold it is not too thick for winter gloves. Josh has a good video on YouTube on how to properly wrap your bars.
