First time I've used the Deda bar tape as I've been a long time Fizik microtec user. So far I've been pleasantly surprised, the tape was very easy to put on and looks great with the Deda emboss adding to the looks and the grip. The tape is just flexible enough to make for a very neat job. Comfortable on the hands without being too bulky. Excellent value.
It's available in gold, do I need to say more?? Easy to install, stretchy enough that if you mess it up you can rewrap. Not the grippiest tape out there.. Riding Fizik high gloss on my other bike, much grippier than the Deda.. Still serves it's purpose well, if you lose your grip it's not the tape, it's you. Looks sick in Gold on my Celeste Cavaria with Gold TRP brakes.
The trade off with soft tape is the edges tend to curl up a bit with heavy use. I get about one season of heavy use out of this tape and then replace. On my third set... very happy with it over all.
used just as directed on the box. no hassle! no issues! no Rips! no breaks! good stretch.... Great hold and feel on your bars when finished!
A kid could do it... The last time I wrapped a handle bar was 30 years ago this was a cake walk.
I'm going to buy a couple more colors so I can change it.. when I drop the bike or wipe out or just get tired of the look... It was that easy
I've had this tape on for a couple months now and it is holding up well. This was the first time I had wrapped drop bars and I had no issues, it went on easy, has stayed on and is quite comfortable. The only thing I could see being improved is to provide a little stronger adhesive tape strips to hold the ends, the tape provided works but I don't think it will last as long as the bar wrap.
