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 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.

Excellent

I received this as a gift Christmas of 2020. I just put it on today! Feels awesome. Beautiful aluminum screw in end plugs. Well thought out butterfly wings for behind shifters. Tacky finishing tape with SILCA logo on it. Beautiful finish. You can pull it on really tight for a nice clean wrap. Looking forward to riding with it! ✌️🤟🇨🇦

Awesome

I am not gonna lie, the grip and comfort of this bar tape is from another level!

The difference to the old standart one is so huge and I am glad that I have this one now.

Will never buy anything else again.

Early report

Except for a single bad experience with some pink Benotto Cellotape in the early 80s at a hot and humid Wheat Thins Miss-n-Out race, I was taught that handlebar tape can only be white. 5 years with Velox Tressostar, 20 with Cinelli cork and the last 15 happy with Deda foam tape ($10 a roll). Decided to try some Silca Nastro Piloti as I like the company (new and old). The Silca went on easily and I really like the shaped wings for the shifters. Very grippy though I never thought grip was ever an issue with any tape after ditching Benotto. The Silca tape cleans easily but I can get 4 Deda foams for the price of one Silca. White Deda foam does not clean well at all but it forces me to perform a nice safety inspection of the entire bar set up a few times per year as I rewrap. Comfort is nearly a tie with perhaps Deda foam a little more forgiving but the Deda foam makes for a fatter diameter bar (a slight negative in my opinion). Too early to tell if I'll put the Silca on the RS and wife's Zanc but it has not been a disappointing experiment so far. 4 instead of 5 stars so far only because of cost versus Deda.

P.S. - awesome bar plugs come with the Silca tape.
