Strengths:    Inexpensive, durable, stretchy, no adhesive

Weaknesses:    no adhesive

Bottom Line:   
Good bar tape for those on a budget. It can usually be had on sale for less than retail, and is quite pleasing to the touch. The tape stretches easily with no real fear of tearing, and comes in a variety of colors. My personal preference is towards non-adhesive tapes, though this may bother some people; Profile Designs offers a selection with adhesives if this is the case.

The kit comes with two short pieces with adhesive for behind the levers, two chromed plastic plugs, two lengths of logo-ed electrical tape, and enough tape to wrap a bar and then some, depending on how tight you prefer your wrap. I originally used the offcuts on my bar ends for better grip/comfort in colder weather, but now keep it on year round.

What bar tape?

I recently put on some new bar tape and while it looks nice I just don't like it. I find it has no squish and a shiny slippery feel. Ideally I would like a tan/brown color to match my saddle but ultimately looking for a foamy, vibration damping, nicely tacky tape. Any suggestions?Read More »

Bar tape?

Any reason not to use bar tape instead of grips? I'm currently using rubber lock-ons and considering ESI Racer's Edge grips. Just worried about the rotating or slipping. As far as comfort goes, I've been riding rubber grips with no problems and cyclocross guys ride with tape, so, why not MTBs?Read More »
