My review is going to look like a lot of the other 5 star reviews. Wow this stuff easy to work with, it might be the easiest bar tape to wrap that Iï¿½ve ever used. The silicone grip works amazing well, you donï¿½t have to worry about it unraveling if you forget to leave the finishing tape within reach and Iï¿½m pretty sure there is no way this tape will migrate even with a small overlap. I noticed a mistake and redid one side the second day and it did not tear or leave any residue on my bars. The tape itself is plain but very clean looking and matches carbon fiber bars very well, it doesnï¿½t seem to have a lot of grip but my hands havenï¿½t slipped much if at all, I havenï¿½t been on a hot or rainy ride yet so Iï¿½m not sure how it fairs in wet conditions. Iï¿½m really not a fan of the basic bar end plugs or the oddly skinny finishing tape, although it is quality tape that is very similar to Silcaï¿½s, but itï¿½s hard to complain considering the price.
I like the look of white bar tape but the cork stuff always ends up looking ratty very quickly. This stuff is different. If it gets dirty or stained by black gloves, a little bit of window cleaner and a paper towel is all it takes to clean it up. The feel of the tape is a bit like faux leather and has good squish while not being too thick. The silicone backing instead of sticky tape is brilliant and made putting the tape on very forgiving. The tape has good stretch and isn't fragile. I didn't use the bar ends but they fit snugly in my bars. I especially like the narrow finishing tape and it looks great on my aero handlebars. Most finishing tape just looks like electrical tape to me, while this stuff looks PRO.
I've used this bar tape for many years and won't switch to anything else. That being said I buy a lot of parts, clothing and everything cycling from BTD and prefer their service over nearly all the online cycling sellers. They have reasonable prices and outstanding service. They listen to their customers when you have a problem then they fix it. I'm a permanent customer. Thanks BTD.
Thick tape, easy to mount, will stretch (not to oblivion like gel tape). White stays clean. I had to pull part of mine off in order to move my Campy Ergo cables due to new handlebars. I had this tape on the floor. Like the clutch I am, I stepped on it numerous times and ran over it a few times with my front wheel. It rolled it back on and it was like brand new. Did not misshape and cleaned up with Simple Green. Not too fond of the black finishing tape. I used white electrical tape for the all white look. Has a nice feel to it without being too soft. Dampens out the ride a tad. Does not get slippery with perspiration. If you like tape with a little bit of padding, this is it. Mine did not come with extra pieces for the brake lever bends. I cut off a piece from the roll, still had plenty to work with, IO used 44 bars. If you like white tape, this is it....
Easy to wrap (and rewrap as required to get it right) with good stretch. I wanted to try white and several other comments said it stays clean so I gave it a try. I agree, the white stays clean amazingly well. I would rate the cushioning as medium. My one issue is if you sweat a lot (this bike is in Hawaii) it gets quite slippery so for hot climates I would recommend one of the other PRO bar tapes. They are all high quality products at great prices.
This tape is phenomenal in that it seems to be dirt-phobic. I ride gravel, CX, and single track often, and this tape does not show allow dirt to stick. I ordered white and have about 350 miles of off-road use,... and they tape is still crispy white. I don't know how they make this stuff, but it is great.
I love this tape its easy to apply, looks good for a long time. I get the white and normaly white is hard to keep clean, but this tape has a coating or something on it and the dirt wont stick to it, it stays white all the time. I ride 350 miles a week and thats a lot of road dirt, this tape hangs, its comfortable and stays clean, love it!
Great tape that looks good and has a good feel. I used black and it looks great on my bike, replaced red tape that looked horrible. Good cushion feel to it and it wrapped easily, has just enough stretch, but did not feel like it was going to tear either.
This tape is fabulous and combines the best of leather and silicone. It feels like leather, yet is sticky with moderate cushioning. Moderately stretchy which makes for a very clean, professional look. In black it has no cleaning issues. I prefer this to Cinelli (cork and gel) and the Deda Elementi. It is slightly better than Prologo Double Touch.
I use this on my track bike. Very strong tape-you can stretch it without the feeling that it's going to snap. I used the white tape which shows dirt easily and this tape doesn't clean or wash off easily, but I think that goes with the territory with a grippy tape. i think it would be taken off and reapplied without tearing or sticking too much unlike some that I've used
