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. 

The Rubbery design has loads of grip and a generous amount of cushioning. At 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.

  • Material: Rubber
  • Length: 200cm
  • Thickness: 3.5mm
  • Weight: 152g including bar plugs
  • Adhesive backed strip down the middle for easy installation

Note: this wrap features three dots that are offset from center. Wrap your bars with the dots all visible.

Rubbery Handlebar Tape

works great

I really like the feel and cushioning of this handlebar tape. Good stuff.

Daniel Standridge
Super grippy, lays nice

I love the feel of this tape, it's got decent padding and is almost sticky to the touch. I also found it very easy to wrap with a nice appearance (I am admittedly terrible at wrapping bars). The only thing I didn't like about the tape was that the adhesive strip is barely attached to the tape and comes off very easily which is a problem if you need to backtrack and rewrap, especially at the start and finish of the job.

Fantastic looking tape! Feels great, too!

Pretty comfy, but kinda weird-feeling at first. Good longevity

Had this tape about 3 or 4 months now. At first it felt impossibly grippy and frankly disgusting, like touching some sort of stubbly sea creature, to the point that I feared I would get blisters, but it being winter I wore gloves anyway for my first few rides. Pretty quickly it broke in a bit, and is very comfy and pretty soft despite retaining it's excellent grip, and it looks pretty good too (I got it in the brown color).

One thing to note about this tape is that the knurly pattern is not symmetrical, so you can wrap one direction for more knobbies and the other way for fewer knobbies (because more will be covered under the overlap). However, if you aren't careful you'll do what I did and end up with one side wrapped one way and the other side wrapped the other way. The difference is slight but noticeable.

After about 3 or 4 months, the exposed edges have started fraying a little bit (yes, I wrapped in the correct direction), and the rubber on these frayed edges is starting to break down a little bit, occasionally shedding little black bits of linty rubber. My main touchpoint areas are starting to get pretty bald and slightly discolored by now, but even with my greasy bike mechanic hands and mineral sunscreen usage, it's not oily or gross at all. At this rate it probably won't last longer than another month or two before it starts to really break down, but 5-6 months is pretty solid lifespan for bar wrap.
