SILCA NASTRO PILOTI is a 1.85mm thick tape which provides cushioning equivalent to 2.5mm thick tapes of existing technology. The asymmetric PILOTI texture allows the tape to be wrapped in either a moderate texture or high texture format depending on preference.
NASTRO PILOTI is the ultimate tape for the most discerning, performance minded cyclists. It provides a thinner, more aerodynamic wrap with tuneable 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.
SILCA research into impedance and damping determined 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, SILCA 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 ensure every detail is perfect.
