Gecko Pave Handlebar Tape
Arundel Gecko Pave is a fabric and EVA foam base bar tape, topped with a layer of printed silicone.
Applying a thin layer of silicone made it possible for Arundel to produce a bar tape that is of similar weight to their Gecko Grip while retaining the grippiness and overall feel of pure silicone tape.

Qualifier I don't claim to be an expert bar tape wrapper. While I like the look and have gotten several compliments on the look, there are two issues with this tape that I do not like. The first is the application. The elasticity of the tape is significantly greater than the sticky strip attached to the back of the handlebar tape. While the bar tape stretches, the sticky strip on the back does not. You can not stretch this bar tape without causing the two parts to separate. I managed, but it was not easy. The second issue is durability. The outer coating has already come off near the shifters after several months. I average about 120 miles per week.
