Nastro Piloti Bar Tape

When Silca comes to market with a new product, it goes all in with the research and development. It's latest item, Nastro Piloti Bar Tape, uses technology utilized in running shoe foam and F1 tires creating significant improvements over traditional bar tape. Nastro Piloti uses a laminate of SILCAthane, SILCAlon, and 3M Visco-elastic adhesive instead of a traditional single foam extrusion, allowing for optimization of the tape across a range of desired features.

As a result, the tape is softer, more comfortable, has better wet and dry grip, better vibration damping, and up to 3 to 5-times the durability of existing tape materials. The wrap and finishing of the tape weren't overlooked either and Silca developed a full adhesive backed ‘butterfly’ design to better cover the back of the lever clamp area without adding bulk, a high grip finishing tape, and expanding aluminum and composite bar end plugs ensure a pro-level tape job.


  • Silca's 1.85mm thick Tri-Laminate tape delivering similar cushioning to 2.5mm tape
  • Racecar inspired Dual-Tread deboss provides High or Max Grip depending on wrap
  • Aluminum expanding bar-end plugs are a nice touch
  • PU finishing tape offers a pro-level finish
  • Butterfly shaped brake clamp covers without the bulk
  • Item #SLCD015

Really good with one drawback

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I recently wrapped my bars with this tape and agree with the other reviews that it is too short. Besides the length, the tacky feel and comfort are great. And it has some stretch so you can wrap it tightly, which is a must to cover an adequate amount on the bars. I don’t use finishing tape and wrap “backwards “ ending at the hole where I stuff the excess in and plug. I had to re-wrap a few times just to cover it all. And this was on 40cm bars. Just need 2-3” more to be great…

GREAT Bar Tape

I've used it several times
6' 2"

This is an initial review, I've only done about 600km riding since installing this tape. This would get 5 stars if it was a bit longer by about 6 inches. Yes, it's expensive but it is very easy to install and you can wrap it tight. Way to early to comment on durability but I expect it to be very long lived. The dual grip choice seems a good option, I wrapped on the max grip side and indeed the grip is excellent with sweaty hands or in the rain. It is super comfortable and damps out vibration very well without loss of road feel. Yes, it is thinner but I find the vibration damping and road feel to be far better than thicker tapes. I'm very impressed with this tape, Silca seem to have done their homework well. I really like it on my road bike and am about to put it on my gravel bike. I've not used anything better, I also run Silca latex tubes and if the bar tape is as good as their tubes then I expect it will perform well for a good long time.

It's ok

I've put it through the wringer

The bar tape is very thin and not long enough for standard handle bars. I have the black inc bar stem combo and there is not enough length in the tape to wrap with a figure 8 around the hoods, with out a figure 8 there is still not enough to cover the bar adequately. I would not recommend
