Great colour choice, not that durable

Posted08 April 2015
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Lightweight, Good value
Cons: Uncomfortable, Poor quality
Making the big change from Rapha-ish pink to Clement-ish yellow, I found a great match in the Intense Ochre tape. I even managed to guess which colour that was, not an easy task with so many listed.
It looked great ... until the bike blew over in a gust of wind, bar end hit the ground first and the tape tore right through at the corner of the bar.
On function - it's ok, not slippery, nice contact surface but there's precious little padding in it. The bar actually feels smaller to hold than with some other tapes. So it will suit you if you like "feel" rather than cushioning. It also gets dirty very easily, even from apparently clean gloves - if anything more easily than the baby pink I had before!
At least it won't cost much to replace, either if you change your mind or it gets damaged.

Comfy and durable. Nice selection of colours.

Posted20 March 2015
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Comfortable, Looks great
Cons: can tear easily when removing
Nice wide selection of colours in stock to match all tastes. I find that this brand hold up well to daily abuse and is value for money. Only quip is that once its on its hard to remove without ripping so do it right first time!

Everything that bar tape should do

Posted17 January 2015
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
Comfortable on long rides, enough colours available to match with pretty much any frame, and grippy when the going gets slippy.

Value for money

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Comfortable, Looks great
Looks and feels good once fitted.

No, I do not recommend this product.
There was scarcely enough tape to cover the bars, but once fitted the tape has stayed in place and it's reasonably comfortable.
