Mine has over 6,500 miles on it and it still looks new (I have glossy black). Its a must if you wanna go with white bar table look. I have to change it because I need to change my cable housing otherwise it looks great. It has slightly tacky feel and not slippery as one might guess.
I have four road bikes, except for one, they are all installed with Fizik Superlight 2mm microtex glossy bar tape. And the other bike is also using Fizik tape but a different material. The microtex glossy bar tape looks good, very easy to clean, and comfortable. I would use it again.
Bought a set of back to give my bike a new look. After installing the tape on one side, the high glossy tape just didn't look right for me, looked kind of cheap. Took it off and got rid of. Put something else none glossy on.
This glossy tape is much better than the ones with matte finish in my opinion. Any dirt and grease easily washes right off. Easy to install and the tape remains sticked well months after installation.
I bought some Fizik glossy bar tape last year, along with some Fizik gel padding. It made my hands sweat and I pulled it off and hung it in my garage after a few weeks. Fast forward one year. I used the Fizik gel with another brand of bar tape and it also made my hands sweat. I realized it wasn't the tape, it was because I gripped the bars differently as the gel pads increased the diameter of my bars (generally my finger tips don't made contact with my bars). The glossy tape is strong, won't tear, fairly easy to apply (pull hard), has a tacky/sticky feel to it, looks fantastic and best of all it wears like iron. I clean it up using Windex or Simple Green (whatever is available). I'm contemplating trying some white glossy as I imagine it cleans up well.
I love this stuff. Looks awesome and stays looking awesome for months and months of hard use (even white). It's light, has a slightly sticky feel, doesn't cost too much, and it's super durable. I've used lots of other tape...Specialized, Lizard Skin, etc...nothing is as good as this product.
