With our ‘crash replacement’ program your SILCA Bar Tape is covered for any crash for 1 year!
How does it work?
When you purchase your new SILCA Bar Tape you are automatically enrolling yourself into the program. If purchased at a retailer, your program is only valid at THAT retailer with proof of purchase.
NASTRO Bar Tape retails at $42usd for Piloti, $46usd for Fiore and $50usd for Cuscino. In the unfortunate event that a crash happens, and replacement of bar tape is needed, the customer will receive a $12 discount ($30, $34, and $38 respectively) for any color variant of the respective bar tape that was purchased (subject to availability).
Please keep the purchase information of your Bar Tape. If you bought online, please send pictures of the bar tape to firstname.lastname@example.org. If bought at one of our many retailers, please bring the bike to the shop for replacement.
At SILCA, one of our strongest beliefs is in the protection in your investment and more importantly, in the protection of yourself. Bar Tape should be replaced at least every year for the best performance and for safety checks of corrosion on aluminum bars or damage to carbon bars. We want to make sure that you are covered by providing the first crash replacement program for bar tape.

Inspired by advancements in running shoe foam and F1 tires as well as our own research into rolling efficiency, impedance and damping, we 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, we’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.
