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

- Thickness: 3.5mm

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

Overall, I love this tape. The only downside is when I lean it against a painted building or garage door, it leaves a white mark on the bar tape that is hard to remove.
It's grippy, comfortable, and looks great on any kind of bike.
I desperately needed to upgrade my handlebar tape, and I'm glad I went with this stuff. It feels really high quality, and looks great.
Nice cushioning, stretchy and easy to wrap.
