Just put on some Silca Nastro Piloti bar tape on one of our steeds the other day (review to come) and the Indianapolis firm just announced the newest addition to its tape lineup: The Nastro Cuscino and Nastro Aero.
The Cuscino, as its name suggests, is Silca’s thickest tape, but also the cushiest. Silca claims its 3.75mm thick, triple-ply construction equates to competitors’ 5mm tape.
At the other end of the spectrum is the Nastro Aero, a 1mm thick die-cut tape purposely designed for integrated handlebars or aero extension with an emphasis on minimal bulk and superior all-weather grip.
Also announced is a one-year crash replacement program for the Nastro tape family. In the event the tape is damaged from a crash, Silca will replace the tape at a discounted rate ($30 for Piloti, $34 for Fiore, and $38 for Cuscino, essentially $12 off across the board).
Both the Cuscino ($50) and the Aero ($15) are available today.
