Rated 5 out of 5 by pedalhead The best tape I've used
Grippy with or without gloves, great in wet weather, extremely comfortable for road or cyclocross use. In my experience it is quite long lasting as well, and after removing and rewrapping the tape due to getting new handlebars it is still going strong. Recommended if your budget allows it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Havebikewillride Bar tape that feels great
Decided to personalise bike with blue bar tape and inserted gel pads in key areas. Fairly easy to fit except would have like them to be a little longer so I had some to trim at the end. Perhaps I should have wrapped them a little wider which would have in effect made them longer but wanted them to look right. Otherwise very happy

Rated 5 out of 5 by Philthy Expensive, but I wouldn't use anything else now
After years of Fizik bar tape, I wanted something with a bit more feel to it. Decided to give the Lizard Skins tape a go and what a difference. The grip is excellent with a slightly spongy feel. Comfortable to hold with or without gloves and a sensation of tacky (as in glue not cheap and chav like) in the hand to help with grip. Comes with finishing tape the same colour as the bar tape so there's no ugly contrasting colour at the ends. If there is a problem, it's that the indentations in the tape face make it easy to get dirty and a bind to keep clean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ShawnfromCalgary Comfortable and sticky but shifts easily
This tape is fat and chunky and I don’t think you’d find one that’s easier on the hands. The texture and materials make it very easy to keep ahold of and that doesn’t change when your hands sweat or get wet. The biggest two issues with this tape are its cost and the fact that it shifts around pretty easily. It costs nearly twice as much as the next most expensive tape and although the quality is very good it still hurts a bit in the wallet. Also the tape shifts around very easily because the back side isn’t tacky enough. There’s a very slim strip of tacky material on the back and the tape is so thick it shifts around pretty easily if you slide your hands around. There’s also JUST enough tape to cover the bars, a bit extra would be nice so you can go a little heavier in areas that need it.
Overall it’s great tape and very comfortable and seems to last quite a long time before it needs to be changed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Skos90 Лучшая обмотка.
Это действительно лучшая обмотка для руля. Она стоит своих денег.
Прекрасный хват, в меру мягкая, отличное сцепление как в перчатках, так и без них в любую погоду.
Да, она дорогая; когда я выбирал, увидел эту Lizard skins в первый раз - ужаснулся. Такая цена за расходник? Да ну... Как говорится, обмотка - до первого завала в группе.
Но уже при замене следующей обмотки решил попробовать - в самом деле такая чудесная? Попробовал.
Таки да, в самом деле такая чудесная. Так что если есть средства на нее - берите, не пожалеете. Категорически рекомендую. =)
P.S. Отдельно хочу обратить внимание на упаковку: на лицевой стороне упаковки вклеен пробник обмотки. Крутая задумка, сразу можно попробовать.

Rated 2 out of 5 by VELORIGIN Lacking durablity and slippery when wet
I found this tape to become very slippery when the hands became sweaty on a hot day or going out on the rain. I also did not find it to be very durable with the top layer peeling back after a while of normal use. I didn't think the added comfort was worth the other trade offs. I would not get this tape again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by OscarCrc Best without gloves
I got the black color
It is easy to install.
Tape was long enough for me. I have a 42 cm bar which does not reveal much on the lenght of the tape.
Grippy, soft and confortable.
I find it is best without gloves.
I haven't tried in the rain.
Cannot comment on durability yet.
My previous tape was old bike ribbon tape, it last a long time.
