Straight like for like replacement

PostedAugust 24, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
I looked at all sorts of bike tape before buying a like for like replacement for my previous tape, which lasted six years and tens of thousands of kilometres. I figured, why change something I was really happy with? The new tape understandably has more spring than the tape I've just replaced, and this means that I'm not getting tired hands with road vibration as much as I did.
It's really comfortable.

Soft cushy easy to use as described

PostedJuly 12, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
Product is easy to use and ample to go around the bar, not taped on the underbelly so can be re-wrapped if necessary although you have to be careful to wrap it around tight and tape it down otherwise it can come undone.

Good tape

PostedSeptember 17, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight
Cons: Unattractive
Good tape, comfortable and easy to install. I regret choosing the white colour option however, as the tape looked dirty within the first few days of light use.

Nice comfy bar tape

PostedSeptember 2, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
The double gel bar tape makes for a very comfy ride under the hands. This item has taken away a lot of the vibration I was getting through the bars, and reduced the amount of soreness I was getting in my wrists. Seems to be quite strong and easy to keep clean. Great item that I would buy again

Cheap comfort

PostedJuly 16, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable
Having crashed my Trek Madone and broken the Bontrager RXXXL carbon bars in the process I found the replacement alloy ones a tiny bit harsh. Unwilling to fork out £200 for replacement carbon bars I opted to try this double gel tape and not only does it reduce vibration it cushions my hands very well. So, if you're finding alloy a bit harsh, wrap your bars in this stuff and they'll feel like carbon!
