Rated 1 out of 5 by DailyRider Some love it I hate it, sticky plastic tape yuck! Give me cork or leather any day.
My LBS fitted this to my TREK Madone after a gear cable replacement required the removal of my white cork Bontrager tape. To their shame they just said it wa lizard skin so I was not expecting plastic or vinyl. It is not as soft as the cork tape and feels hard and tacky, yes it is grippy but at the expemse of having a sticky feel. I can not see any advantage with this tape and more than anything it looks and feel awful! It looks and feels like plastic tape which of course it is! Maybe a subjective thing but give me dry feeling soft cork any day. I have ordered leather Gist tape to replace it, I can't wait till it arrives.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous hard work to fit but very comfy
Very comfy, with nice touches such as small strips for extra cushioning where you want it (drops or hoods or the flat part). I'm not an expert at all but I found this incredibly hard to apply evenly - you can't stretch it as other reviewers have said, but it took me a lot of goes to get the fit even remotely acceptable. On the road this is excellent - easy to grip very strongly and also dampens vibrations a bit compared to the more spongy tape that came on my bike.
I would buy this again, but in another colour. I chose the grey one which is pretty ugly, but that's my fault.
Would be 5 stars if it wasn't so hard to apply for someone who's not an expert. At least it retains its stickiness and can be re-attempted many times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Great feel
By far the best tape i have used and this includes Easton and Fizik tape. The material just cushions better and the grip on the bars is improved, especially in the wet where the material retains its feel.
Have had it on for 500km so cannot tell how it wears, but would definately buy this again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Fast, comfortable, sticky
This is my personal choice over the other Lizard Skins padded tape. Thinner, but still enough to keep the sharp edges off. I also prefer the less lizard pattern, which also aids in applying the tape evenly. Remember: do not stretch much or the cushion effect will be degraded somewhat. Don't worry if it isn't perfect the first time, the adhesive will allow you to remove and try again. The end strips (finishing tape?) is also the best I've found to date because it really works.
