Fibre Grip™ is specially designed to create friction and reduce slippage between clamped carbon fiber surfaces. Fiber Grip eliminates the need to over tighten clamps to achieve secure connections. Over tightening can cause internal fractures and fatigue of carbon fiber parts. Apply Fiber Grip in a thin film to clamping areas of stems, handlebars, seat posts, and seat tubes. Tested and approved by leading carbon fiber component manufacturers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Neezurt A must-have for riders with CF bikes
I didn't know this stuff existed, but after struggling with a few creaks and movement between carbon-fibre components on my bike, research turned this product up.
Duly bought, I can confirm that it works brilliantly. My stem, handlebars and seat post have all been held perfectly - and, more importantly - at the right torque.
Don't be tempted to over-crank bolts on carbon-fibre frames to try and get things to 'hold' - you'll do irreparable damage. OTOH, a dab of Fiber-Grip means you can tighten to just the recommended torque (with a suitable torque wrench) and be confident that everything is going to stay put.
When you consider the potential damage you can cause with over-tightening things, this Gel ain't at all expensive. Plus... I reckon my tube will last forever!

Посадил на этот гель рулевую колонку и каретку Press Fit в карбоновой раме. Надеюсь ничего люфтовать не начнет.

After purchasing a carbon fibre bike 12 months ago, this is the first 'fibre grip' gel/paste I have used. I have used Finish Line products in the past and trusted their name.
Gel goes on nice and thick so it is easy to see where you're applying it. The gel lasts quite a while before needing to reapply. Cleans up in water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Johno631 Stops slipping seat posts
Have been having issues with my dropper post slipping in my frame (stanton slackline 631), even with the clamp done up scarey tight. This product has cured the slipping post and the clamp doesn't need to be as tightly done up

Bought this for my seat-post on my Carbon Cervelo R3 as the post slipped slightly. I didn't want to over tighten the clamp, this stuff did the job well, hasn't slipped since. Good product, good value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Balsahack A must have for carbon frames
Had issues trying to secure my post on new Bianchi carbon frame. No matter how I tightened it, including tighter than recommended torque, it just kept slipping on long rides. After hearing a worrying cracking sound decided to get this. Now the post has not moved a millimeter even though tightened less than max torque. Wipes off easily without marking carbon when need to adjust post height. Also great on handlebars. Great for DIY bike mechanics.

Rock shox say when installing reverb seat post you should use a frriction paste to enable a low torque setting of the seat tube clamp. Will this work as well in this situation as it is advertised to work with Carbon, and therefore also stop reverb squeaking posts...
