Silca Nastro Fiore 2.5mm Handlebar Tape
The Silca Nastro Fiore 2.5mm handlebar tape is a 2.5mm thick tape that provides cushioning and comfort equivalent to 3.2mm tapes of existing technologies. FIORE has a moderate texture, high tackiness, and printed silicone graphics which adds comfort and grip in both wet and dusty conditions. NASTRO FIORE is for the detail oriented cyclist looking for additional comfort without the additional bulk commonly associated with thick bar tapes. Fiore also adds a subtle colour pop through contrasting high grip silicone printing, as well as the Butterfly clamp wrap for perfect bar taping every time.
Inspired by advancements in running shoe foam and F1 tires as well as Silca’s own research into rolling efficiency, impedance and damping, they realised 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 optimised across a range of desired features. The resulting tape has a softer, more comfortable feel, higher wet and dry grip, better vibration isolation, and 3-5 times the durability of existing tape materials. Since the actual wrap of the tape can be as important as the tape itself, Silca have 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 aluminium / composite end plugs to ensure every detail is perfect.

E.T.Phone.Home. Excellent tape with exceptional grip with either bare or gloved hands. The tape is less flexible than others on the market which will explain some of the reviews indicating it's difficult to install. However, unlike other tapes this will not break when pulled firmly and the key to good application is constant and generous tension.
