PNW Components Coast handlebar tape adds comfort and grip to drop bars

PNW recently looked into some new mountain bike grips, but now it’s time for the drop bar. Splitting their wares between the MTB and road/gravel worlds, it makes sense that PNW would add the new Coast bar tape to their lineup—and in a typically PNW stylish way.

Grip in all conditions is important to PNW – it’s right there in the name. The Pacific Northwest is known for its wet and sloppy conditions, which is why their new Coast handlebar tape is designed to be as grippy as it is comfortable. Made from polyurethane with an embossed PNW pattern for a non-slip surface, the tape has a nice sticky feel.
