Rated 5 out of 5 by supergoto Nice looking bar tape, has a good grip
This is the second time I have bought this bar tape. I really like the way it looks, pretty thin like I like. The grip it offers is good enough and it feels built to last. Does not get damaged easily like some other bar tapes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous AVOID!
as a professional mechanic I have fitted bar tape hundreds of times. This is the worst bar tape I have ever come across. It is far too hard. It is impossible to get a perfect wrap. I don't like the feel of it and can't imagine it will last well. There are MUCH better tapes on the market than this. I don't understand how this product has been given such a high average rating. The best thing about it is the finishing tape, 1 star for that only. AVOID!

The tape is great, Feels like swade, only a lottle bit of padding, but just enough.
Good grip to your hands and gloves so you allways feel in control.
Comes with End caps and some Fizik branded stickytape to hold the ends on, looks great on the bike.

I've used the black tape (bought in the UK 12.99).
1. Goes on well, though had issues peeling the paper off the adhesive back on one side. The adhesive strip and the paper peeled off together. Several attempts required to get it peeling off as intended by FIZIK).
2. Appearance is plain AWFUL. Looks like the tape was wet and has caught whitish patches of fungus). Feels good thouh.
3. Very poor finish. Edges of tape had torn in sections (out of the box).
4. Extremely good (and smart) finishing tape strip (best I've used)! Has good adhesive backing, stretches a bit and has FIZIK written all over). Also has a user friendly tab to help peel off the backing paper. Wish the tape was as well made.
I've used BIKE RIBBON, LOOK, SPECIALIZED, CINELLI and several 'no-name' SE Asian (?) tapes and this tape was a big disappointment. I have other FIZIK stuff which is brilliant. If you consider buying this, I suggest taking it out of the box and checking the sides aren't torn. Also see if the fungus-look is to your liking. happy riding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Great tape
Feels awesome and wears well. I like to under-wrap with cork first for a bit of padding and thickness but wouldn't consider anything else on top.

I've used this bar tape 4 times now because I love the look and feel of it, but seriously it last a few rides before it starts deteriorating to the fluffy white layer underneath. I don't believe everyone saying how long it lasts. Need to find something else..

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Where's the old Chain Reaction Cycles?
Product is great - 5 star - grips in the wet lasts a while BUT it took nearly a week to get to me - what happened to the old Chain Reaction Cycles where everything was pretty much next day delivery? Surely that's the only reason why CRC have become so popular - no fast delivery and you might as well use the smaller shops...
