Customer reviews for 3T Pro Bar Tape

3T Pro Bar Tape

In 2007, 3T embarked on a major program of investment in advanced design and engineering. They renewed their entire product range to provide world-class racers with high-performance cycle components that meet and exceed all their demands. Their goal: the Ultimate Performance. They reviewed every single aspect of their operation, from product concept through engineering design, test, and manufacture, to packaging and fulfilment. To achieve top engineering quality, they invested in the design industry's most advanced technology. They hired their technical director from the Ferrari F1 team, and continue to recruit designers from among the world's most talented engineers. While their focus is on engineering the strongest, lightest, and best-performing components you can buy, they care passionately about the way they look. They believe 3T's renewed product portfolio marries their glamorous Italian heritage to world-class engineering design - enhancing the appearance and performance of today's svelte, superlight racing bikes. Bar Tape PRO is a perfect match for the superb 3T handlebars and stems. It's highly effective at damping road shock, and stays grippy even when slick with rain or sweat. It is made of a resilient cork material that resists tearing and abrasion, and is easy to fit, with a light tacky backing. Included in the package is a pair of locking bar-end stops that stay put even when knocked. Bar Tape PRO comes in just the two classic racing colours, black and white, and is embossed with the traditional 3T logo that's being seen more and more on race-winning bikes.

Go for the Team bar Tape instead

PostedJuly 4, 2012
No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Lightweight
Cons: Unattractive
There is nothing wrong with this bar tape. Only that the 3T Team bar tape is so much better and worth the little extra money.

solid product

PostedApril 26, 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
great tape, easier than i expected to install -never having done it before and the difference to my previous old crumbling and slipping tape is huge.
much nicer solid + thicker feel when riding, and the slight ridges allow firm grip in all conditions, and with gloves.
only downside was getting a clean finish when pushing the plastic ends into the bar ends was a bit tricky due to the thickness of the tape.
defo worth the price

Quality

PostedJanuary 17, 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
Excellent quality bar tape, lots of grip, certainly more comfortable than my stock bar tape, 3T are at the front end when it comes to the front end, I am going to be using this on my new Ritchey WCS bars to finish that wet look classy look off. Haven't rode far enough on them to comment on wear and tear or dirt collection yet. Hoping that they don't pick up other colours.

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight
Ordered this and evans shipped a wrong color. Neverthless the tape is of very good quality and feel very good. it is not too soft, which is a good thing and provides good tacky feel.
