  • What is it: SILCA NASTRO PILOTI is a 1.85mm Thick tape for aggressive riding and racing which provides cushioning equivalent to 2.5mm thick tapes of existing technology. The Asymmetric PILOTI Texture inspired by F1 tire technology allows the tape to be wrapped in either a moderate texture or high texture format depending on preference. Who is it for: NASTRO PILOTI is the ultimate tape for the most discerning, performance-minded cyclists. It provides a thinner, more aerodynamic wrap with tunable grip level depending on wrap direction. SILCA Butterfly technology allows for a cleaner, more customizable wrap at the brake lever with minimal bulk or deformation of the hoods. Why we made it: Inspired by advancements in running shoe foam and intermediate 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.
