Match your Fizik saddle with this high quality Microtex bar tape. Now called Superlight, this 2mm thick tape remains identical to the original Microtex design. Fizik now produces a thicker, 3mm version as well (sold separately).

The Microtex microfiber fabric is breathable and strong. The tape is comfortable yet offers excellent grip even when wet. Adhesive backing on the tape makes it simple to install and ensures the tape stays in place. Soft touch tape has a suede feel and appearance.

Microtex Superlight 2mm Bar Tape includes 2 rolls of tape, bar end plugs and Fizik logo black finishing tape.

Great grip, looks good, durable

I've been using fi'zik Microtex for at least 10 or 12 years. Even when I'm riding a ton, this stuff doesn't seem to care. It's comfortable, looks great, they don't skimp on how much they provide you with and there's several styles and many colors to ensure comfort and that it will complement your ride.

Highly recommend starting the wrap at the bar ends and finishing on top of the bars. The thickness of the tape will likely feel catchy and annoy you if you wrap it from the top towards the bar ends. I don't use the crap securing tape that Fi'zik supplies for keeping the tape from unrolling at the end of your wrap, it doesn't stick very well and will unravel. I use a turn of Gorilla tape andor black electrical tape to secure the end of the taping near the stem. That's my only criticism of this stuff.

I Love This Tape

This bar tape feels great! Much more elegant feeling than most traditional cork tapes. This tape is thinner than most cork tape with less padding. I personally like fairly thick tape, so I generally use an inexpensive cork tape, such as Selev cork ribbon, as a base layer and wrap the Fizik tape on top.

Nice looking bar tape.

Nice looking bar tape, but not enough cushioning for me.

It is also hard to wrap , as it has very little cushioning.

Fizik makes lots of bar tape , so I am sure there is a model that would work for me.

I have noticed that Fizik's quality and aesthetics are top notch.

OK - but with flaws

Pro

Price

Tough (no problems with ripping)

Included bar ends are a nice subdued black

Con

Little giveflexibility that would allow it to conform to compound curves without gaps

Not long enough for my application

The lack of perforations on the ends of the tape is puzzling and does not do anything for looks

Box said that it included two pieces to cover the brake hoods - only one was provided

Included finishing tape is covered with the Fizik name and looked tacky

Other information

I wrap using the traditional figure-8 around the brakes and this likely contributed to the length issue. I did not use the included finishing tape because of the issue mentioned above.

Okay but I prefer the Fizik Superlight Tacky Touch

This is an okay foam-type bar tape. It's easy to stretch around the bars without tearing and produces good results. It's not remarkable and the logos (ordering mistake on my part) are a little much for me. I recently bought a bike with the Tacky Touch tape and much prefer it. Although not absorbent like the Microtex tape, it provides a better grip, even when my hands are sweaty.

Weak bar tape, not enough material to wrap 44cm &40c-to-c&41 handlebar

Not enough material to wrap 44cm handlebars. There is basically no padding.

Get the arundel bar tape instead.

Looks Good, Feels Good

I've used Fizik Bartape in the past with virtually no issue. I recently purchased the black logo'd bartape and it has a suede like feel. Easy to install and no concern on tears when stretching. After only a couple early season rides, hard to say how well it will hold up, but it looks cool and should easily get a full season of 3500 miles out of them. Fyi, the 2mm isn't very cushy if that is a concern.

Very thin. kinda slippery,

Easy to apply, Very thin which is what I like in a bar wrap. This bar wrap is kinda slippery I would like to find a Thin bar wrap but with more of a grippy feel.

Love the Feel!

Not as cheap as some of the wraps on the market but they last a long time and retain the good contact feel on your hands. Pair these with the gel pads under the wrap and you have a long lasting, comfortable wrap!

perfect

i went with blue. Matched my old steel frame exactly. the color in the photo is spot on. feels great in your hands. I have bull-horn handle bars (much shorter than drop) so i had plenty of excess tape to wrap the bars with a little more overlap than usual, which makes for great padding.

Never again.

This tape is worthless crap. It is either a terrible design, poor quality or old stock. Either way, it cracked and tore during professional installation at a LBS. I will never ever again buy Fizik bar tape.

Simply superb!

Very PRO indeed. If you ride a top machine, ride nothing less than Fizik Soft Touch!

Fear not, if you clean lightly with dish washing liquid and warm water this tape will maintain its' look and appearance for a long while. It also grips your gloves nicely in big rain,i.e., very non-slip.

Happy racing!!

Fizik tape is a great quality tape. It wears well and for those of us who are vain about color matching on our bike(s) this is the answer.

good tape that lasts

I don't really like cork tapes as I find them too springy so the microtex is good for me. Since microtex tape is not that much more expensive than cork, and is better wearing, I'd recommend this product. However, this tape is not impervious to damage - I recently dropped my bike and the bar tape ripped through.
