Experience the best in bar tape with Lizard Skins' DSP 2.5.

Designed for outstanding durability, increased shock absorption, and great feel in any condition, Lizard Skins Tape outperforms and outlasts standard cork and synthetic tapes. This version is 2.5 mm thick for that extra bit of comfort. At 82 there is ample length for any bar and only 56 grams per set, including the plugs, makes it the lightest tape on the market.

Each set of Lizards Skins DSP includes two full rolls of tape, finishing tape and plastic bar plugs. Various colors.

Ya Get What You Pay For.

I've mostly heard good things about the Lizards but was hesitant to fork out the dough. I wanted to bling out my white Trek Cronus Pro w a white tape so I splurged on the white 2.5's, I'm glad I did. It has a great tactile feel and is non-slip finish. The supple material soaks up vibration beautifully so I didn't even have to use gel padding under it. Did I say it feels good in your hands? It feels like no other tape in the most positive way. Kinda feels like Gummy Bears but more light and lively! Sure the white shows more dirt but rubbing alcohol cleans it up nice. On the plus side, it definitely gave my bike the pop I was looking for. I can't attest to the longevity since I've only put on about 400 miles.

Yeah these are pricy so I wouldn't put them on a commuter or a grocery bike but if you want to splurge on your carbon steed go for it, glad I did.

Love this tape.

I use this tape on my road and cx bikes. I like the durability and the feel of the tape. Soft on the hands, great grip and looks nice.

Best bar tape ever.

Bought this for my daughter., she needed new tape and since I use it on my bike a no brainier. This is the most comfortable tape I have ever used and is lasting a long time. I have had the tape on my bike for over a year and no wear yet. I will buy the same tape again.

Great grip. Love the colors.

Love the tacky feel and cushioned bar. Wraps easily and lasts. I like the ability to clean with it with a mild cleaner. Pricey but worth the cost for the feel and the longevity.

Best stuff out there

This product is first class. Easy to wrap, fantastic feel, durable. More expensive but worth every penny. The 2.5 mm is just right. I had the 3.2 mm but like this better.

Best bar tape available.

This definitely beats cork tape. It's a bit pricey but you get plenty of tape to do a handlebar (unlike cork) and you get bar caps that actually fit and are snug. I give it 4 stars instead of 5 because it doesn't last as long as cork. But I find it's more comfortable and I have a better grip in dry and wet conditions.

Great bar tape

This bar tape has great cushion and very good grip. Some tape gets slippery on long hot (over 90) rides, not this tape. With 1000 miles I can't really comment on durability yet.

Hands-down, my favorite bar tape

It's sticky, comfortable, good-looking and not so pricey as other options. I like this tape. It comes in great colors, too so, it's easy to stay fashionable.

PRICEY BUT WORTH IT

There are other bar wraps out there that are soft, stretchy and sticky like Liz Skins DSP, but none quite as good. This stuff sets the bar high(so to speak) and delivers on spec. Very soft, and it offers a phenomenally good grip when your sweat, or rain is soaking the bar. Two downsides Obviously the cost and secondly, it will wear out visibly faster than most other products. I don't care, I still like it.

Great grip, gets dirty quickly but I feel that may be a bit of a trade off for the grip and road vibration dampening

Really pricey but so comfortable.

I replaced the gel tape on my Felt with this and although more expensive than most I was going it would be really good. It is thick and grippy, looks great and provides some isolation for road Buzz. I really like it, found it too hold up as well as any other tape I have used and cleans up decent. I would recommend this tape to any one. It is on sale alot and I really like the dual color for additional customization.

best tape out there

This stuff rocks. The 2.5mm is a perfect thickness giving some cushion without making your bars feel like overstuffed sausages. And this tape is super grippy. No more white knuckling the bars on steep mountain descents. Absolutely the best grip of any tape I've ever used. I'll be a DSP user from now on. I really don't understand the negative reviews. Some have commented on the inability to keep clean (rubbing alcohol works just fine for that) and some questioned its durability, but I've not had any issues after 1500mi. Disclaimer I replace my tape every season.

Very sticky tape. A great grip even when wet.

Works great. Black gloves stain the white tape. Rubbing alcohol and a terry cloth rag removes most of the stains and restores the sticky feeling to the tape.

great tape, but doens't hold up well in wet conditions

Tape is awesome if it's dry, but has consistently come unraveled when conditions get wet. I had to unwrap, dry out, spray with 3M 77 Spray Adhesive (what I used to spray tack my numbers for time trials) to get it to stick.

If you are considering this tape, do not hesitate! It has the perfect grippytacky texture I like, and it holds up really well over time. Easy to clean. Will never go back to cork tape or any other product.

Good grip. Not so good durability.

Aside from a tendency to loosen if not wrapped with some tension (contrary to instructions) only problem has been rapid deterioration of material behind right shiftbrake lever (area of highest wear). Worn areas provide less cushion where most needed.

Not worth $30.

Feels good in the hands, looks good when new. Came highly recommended by a local bike mechanic.

Unfortunately, I found it nearly impossible to keep clean, since Lizard Skins says not to use soap or it will lose its tacky feeling. I've used Specialized Roubaix S-Wrap, Fizik tape and Prologo Doubletouch on various bikes, and all were much easier to clean (dish soap or auto upholstery cleaner) and considerably cheaper.

In addition, the end plugs provided by Lizard Skins tend to fall out of the bar (Prologo's two-piece plugs are the best I've found).

Looks awesome,feels great.

I have used many tapes in my cycling career,but this is the best so far. It is a bit more pricey then the other ones, but I think its worth every penny. Goes on easy ,looks great, and is easy to keep clean,due to its rubbery texture.

Looked good at first but failed to stand up to regular ware

As handlebar tape goes, it was not an inexpensive product. At first it looked very nice on the bike but I was surprised at how fast the top surface wore through above the brake hoods. I had only had the tape on for less then two months before it started to fail.

Worst tape out there

While this tape does do a nice job of providing a soft surface it is impossible to keep clean and has no abrasion resistance. Your hands wear the outer covering off leaving white foam exposed. Wear gloves and it is even worse. This is the worst bar tape I have ever used.
