PNW has been locking on new MTB grips lately, but now it’s dropbar time. 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 stylish PNW way.

Grip in all conditions is important to PNW—it’s right there in the name. The Pacific North West is known for wet and sloppy conditions, so their new Coast bar tape is designed to be as grippy as it is comfortable. Made from polyurethane with an embossed PNW pattern for an anti-slip surface, the tape has a nice tacky feel.
