We designed this tape for riders that go over varied surfaces during tours and mixed terrain brevets: fire roads, double track, washboard roads, crushed limestone, and gravel.
It's plush. It's 3.5mm thick. It has a very nice hand feel, wraps easily, and is long - which is nice for today's wide bars.
The edges feature a taper so when you wrap your bars it can line-up mostly flat, or have a bit more overlap for a chunkier grip.
Additionally, the included bar plugs are actually really nice quality. You won't be chucking them into the bin like the cheap-o, push in ones.

Whoever invented this stuff should be nominated for best tape award, and will probably win. I've used Cinelli tapes and more recently Sampson Fat Wrap, but Velo Orange tape is the bomb. It installs like any other normal tapes and comes out nicely finished. I double wrap with this on top. The bars are foamy, easy to get a firm grip, plenty of texture, shock absorbing and totally comfortable on long trips. The bar end plugs are totally professional. The product is very high quality and minds are relatively blown when club members and people see it. Much respect to VeloOrange.
I got the splash tape and I'm happy with how it looks. It's thick, so it's very comfortable over the pot-holed and cobblestone streets where I live. The end-caps are easily the best I've ever got with bar tape. You don't have to worry about bumping them with your knee and losing them. I definitely recommend this tape!
Not sure I like how bulky they look. End caps are a nice upgrade. Can't say how they feel when riding, that will come this spring.
Very nice bar tape. Nice and comfortable. Easy to wrap; and love the bar end plugs.
I have literally never had bar tape fly off the shelf that quickly. Of course top quality like everything velo orange sells. Please restock soon!
