Description

Silca Nastro Piloti Handlebar Tape

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 Silca made it:

Inspired by advancements in running shoe foam and F1 tires as well as their research into rolling efficiency, impedance and damping, Silca 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, 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 1.85mm thick Tri-Laminate design delivers equivalent cushioning to 2.5mm tapes
  • Racecar inspired Dual-Tread deboss allows tape to be wrapped for High Grip or Max Grip depending on wrap direction
  • Aluminum expanding bar-end plug
  • PU finishing tape
  • Butterfly shaped brake clamp cover

Grippy and surprisingly cushy

The Silca tape has great grip either dry or wet. It has a nice grip without feeling sticky. For its thickness, it's surprisingly well cushioned. Compared to other tape of similar thickness, the Silca does feel more cushioned.

Very good grip and durable, but high priced.

I love most Silca products , and while this tape feels nice and grippy, it wraps with difficulty . When trying to re-wrap the glue strip tears the tape. And its very expensive.

I have found that I like ProLogo tape from BTD better. It wraps easy and can be re-wrapped and is not too thick. I personally like a thinner tape.

Good tape, but with some problems.

Good

Easy on the hands. Tape is soft and grippy without being super-thick and squishy.

Screw-in bar plugs are included.

Butterfly pieces for covering the back of the levers are not just additional pieces of tape, theyre specially shaped and fully covered with adhesive so they stay put.

Not good

Length. Per Silcas photos, each turn should be made by placing the edge of the tape against the seam down the middle. I did this and ran out of tape on a 42cm bar.

Adhesive is strong...maybe too strong. Pulling the tape off the bar to rewrap it resulted in some of the adhesive staying put and ripping off the bottom layer of the tape.

Not easy to wrap. Must be pulled very tight at all times, still difficult to avoid wrinkles at the hoods.

Overall given that it feels similar to Fizik Vento Tacky (which doesnt have some of the problems), I dont think Id buy it again.
