Nastro Cuscino Bar Tape
Inspired by nontraditional materials, Silca offers a glimpse into the possible future of bar tape with the Nastro Cuscino. Not satisfied with the available grip and wear-resistance of standard bar tape, Silca looked to car racing tires and running shoe foam in contemplating the next advancement in handlebar tape. The Nastro would already be quite cushy with its 3.75mm of thickness, however, the equivalent cushioning delivered is a staggering 5.0mm, compared to traditional materials. This results in improvements in rebound over rough road and off-road conditions. Providing three to five-times more durability than standard bar tape, the Nastro may extend its lifespan well beyond a calendar year, depending on your riding characteristics.
Silca adds to the creature-comforts of the Nastro with ease of installation as the brake clamp cover is butterfly shaped for better coverage; and the laser-engraved aluminum bar-plug expands to dial in the finish.

- I've put it through the wringer
I will not tell you it is easy to put on but thank goodness this tape is so robust you can rewrap it a few times until its perfect. I guess you can rewrap it all night. It is so incredibly strong that you can pull this stuff with more force for a tight wrap than anything I have ever used. No complaints it looks and feels amazing.

- I've used it several times
This tape manages to fix all the defects we have accepted as normal for years. The butterfly tape around the hoods it thin, sticky and properly shaped, not just an extra piece of tape. The finishing tape stays put, and the outside has the right texture. The bar tape itself is different from anything I've used. Tacky when dry, wet or sweaty. The appearance has not changed in the two months I've had it on. Shock absorption and grip are great, though I've not done more than 50 mile rides yet on it. I'm also a recent Zwifter and I didn't realize what a challenge that format is to bar tape. This one is fantastic. The only drawback is it is a bit more difficult to wrap in this thickness but the result is worth the time and patience to get it right.
