New for 2016, Synth. Gecko is a thick, durable, shock absorbing bar tape made with 100% silicone foam. Silicone foam has many inherent properties that make bar tape a perfect application. Since it sticks to itself nicely, no additional adhesive is required on the underside of the tape to prevent it from slipping once wrapped. It’s easy to wrap, unwrap and even reuse (and you won’t be plagued with the inevitable stickum residue that many tapes leave behind). Synth. Gecko cleans up easily with soap and warm water, and the result will leave it looking nearly brand new.

The subtle pavé pattern of the tape provides a surface texture to improve tactile feel and grip. The additional grip is beneficial, particularly on blistering hot days when palms get sweaty, or during the occasional downpour. The natural texture of silicone foam is comparable to brake hoods; it is tacky, squishy but firm, while also providing excellent vibration dampening.

Synth. Gecko comes in a pack of two 220 cm rolls. Want extra cushion? Wrap it thick and fat. Care for a grippy, low volume wrap? Stretch it and wrap it thin.

Best tape!

I haven’t used anything else in my drops since I found this stuff a couple years ago. It’s so easy to work with and has great grip.

Favorite Tape!

I love this tape. It�s easy to clean (I bought white), easy on the hands, easy to wrap, sticky, boy not too sticky. I�ve tried lizard skins (color wears off) Fizik (great but hard to clean), Cinelli (classic, but just so-so). I haven�t tried Cannondale�s synth tape yet, but I will. Maybe. I just love this tape so much I�ll probably just stay with it forever. (Also tried Silca tape: I see the draw, but I�m not a fan. It�s bulky and wrinkly and just too much.)

Great tape

Great tape! You can stretch it as much or as little as you like, depending on the thickness of grip you prefer. It cleans up extremely easily. I have white Arundel silicone tape on one of my bikes, and it always looks clean (if I simply wipe to down). The orange tape on another of my bikes stays brighter than other orange tapes. It's sticky and yet you can change positions easily on it. Some reviewer here said they didn't have enough tape with the Arundel. I can't imagine why! I have regular drops and Salsa drops with a 12 degree flare. This tape covered both types of bars easily. I'd buy it again in a snap.

this tape is very grippy and easy to clean

I like this tape a lot. It absorbs road vibration, is quite grippy and cleans up easily. Since it doesn't have adhesive it's easy to remove and re-wrap if need be. It's also quite stretchy which makes for a nice tight wrap.

I do wish it came with wider and higher quality finishing tape.

Good product

I rewrapped my bars and like the product with the Fizik gel pads underneath.

Best tape I�ve used

This stuff is versatile and playable. Because it naturally sticks to itself without an adhesive you can go back and rework the tape if necessary during the initial application. The grip is perfect with just the right amount of tack. I�ll be buying this tape for all my bikes from now on.

A good handlebar tape.

A good handlebar tape. Tape is plenty long - as advertised - and easy to wrap/re-wrap. I don't feel that silicone foam provides the same cushioning as silicone.

Great tape

Firm, tacky feel with enough cushion to dampen the road vibrations.

Wrap for comfort

I picked this wrap for its color options and comfort. I have not been disappointed. This is not going to add to aerodynamics, but love it on my daily rider.
