New bar tape delivers ultimate grip and comfort, no matter the conditions.

As gravel continues to skyrocket brands like PNW have been bringing some fresh ideas and products to the drop bar market. Last year we tested their Rainier 27.2 Gen 3 dropper seatpost with DropBar Lever Kit which lead to an internal RBA debate. The 125mm travel post gives you the most drop of any 27.2 post on the market currently. It also features tool-less travel adjust for those that don’t need or cant accommodate that much travel.

This latest update is to their Coast bar tape that was already really good. The tape is extra long for those running wide and or flared bars. Don’t get it wrong, the Coast bar tape is also a great option for road bikes too as it has a great feel and balances thickness and comfort.
