Description

City, Cyclocross and Cobble Comfort Approved Bar Tape.

Silca Nastro Cuscino Handlebar Tape is for the cyclist looking for the most comfortable bar tape to help conquer cobbles, gravel, CX, rain, and rough conditions. Developed by Silca, it is optimal for cyclists experiencing sore or numb hands or are frustrated with slippery bar tapes in rainy or sweaty conditions.

A Tri-Laminate 3.75 mm thick tape that provides cushioning and comfort equivalent to 5 mm of traditional bar tape foam, Cuscino has a strong texture, medium-high tackiness, and printed silicone graphics which adds comfort and grip in both wet and dusty conditions.

Inspired by advancements in running shoe foam and F1 tires as well as the brand's research into rolling efficiency, impedance, and damping, Silca 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, they'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.

Features:

  • Ultra Performance 3.75mm thick Tri-Laminate design delivers equivalent cushioning to 5.0mm tapes of traditional materials
  • SILCAlon (2-Hour Marathon Shoe foam) offers greater cushioning and 3-5x more rebound for improved performance over rough surfaces
  • Debossed racing stripe pattern plus embossed color silicone printing for improved grip and cushioning
  • Laser Engraved Aluminum expanding bar-end plug
  • TPU finishing tape with full 3M adhesive
  • Butterfly shaped brake clamp cover

Absolute best bar tape

This tape is amazing. It feels very comfortable with or without gloves. It's grippy when wet and last a long time. It's expensive, but worth it

Excellent tape with 1 significant drawback

I agree with all the other reviews of this typically high quality Silca item. I would give it 5 stars except...if you ever, and I mean EVER, want to re-wrap your bars (move a shift lever or change bars for cyclocross season) you will NEED to buy new bar tape. Silca is the only bar tape I have purchased that cannot be removed without destroying it. The tape fuses to itself and leave the foam backing glued to your handlebars. It takes a long time to pick the remains off and then I needed to use a solvent to remove the remainder. I will buy it again, but I am disappointed by the single use aspect. Keep this in mind and be very careful wrapping your bars.

Great bar tape

$50 for bar tape is a lot, BUT I'd gladly pay it again for this tape. By far the best tape I've ever used. It feels great on bare hands and it's very grippy.

Excellent!

Been road riding for six years and lately 200 to 300 miles a week. Silca Nastro Cuscino adds a touch of elegance to the bike and feels great on the hands. The only bar tape I'm using from now on..

My new favorite bar tape

The bar tape I used to use was discontinued. Over the last year 4 brands of bar tape. I found the Silca Nastro Cuscino perfect for my needs. It has good damping, it wraps thick for my larger hands & it holds up in all weather conditions. All 4 of my bikes now this bar tape on them.

Exceptional bar tape

I put this on my gravel bike, and it totally helps dull out the constant chatter of the road. Sticky, well made tape. I love it.
