I live in Florida where we have warm and wet weather. I do not wear gloves so having bar tape that is not slippery is a pretty big deal. Some bar tapes feel tacky, but change quickly when wet to a water slide. The Brooks Cambium Rubber Bar Tape feels like rubber with good grip and feels exactly the same when wet. The feel of it is a combination of Newbaums and Supercaz.
It is on the chunkier side and although it is rubber it does not stretch a bunch. It took me quite a fews tries to get it on just right, so it was very forgiving. Even the cloth finishing tape had to come off a couple of times, but still adhered when I finally got the wrap right.
I paid $xx on sale at BTD and so far that has been the best price.
Rating 5. Value 5, I used the price match and got it really cheap!
Very comfortable on hands, mega grip, great feel. It's wearing in to an even better feel. I have a brown B17 and the natural color compliments it...doesn't match, but looks good along with the darker brown saddle, and my bike is a Matte tan, sort-of-Desert Storm color. Easy to wrap, just enough stretch, no issues. Honestly the best looking, hand friendly bar tape I have ever used.
Also, tape is turning an authentic used leather kind-of shade from the oils in my hands, which adds to the fauxreal leather look, without worrying about the weather wrecking it!
First purchase of new tape, I have several bikes with the brooks leather choice. This is more tacky which is great for grip and enough padding for comfort great would but again
