Created as result of a study on how best to fasten the telemetry control unit on the F1 Ferrari, these triggered great interest from customers looking for a safe, yet elastic and economic way of fastening their equipment.
Over the years, BARBIERI thus decided to extend production of these elastic rubber fasteners.
