From washboard-laden gravel roads to brutal cyclocross courses, and challenging century rides, Lizard Skin's thickest bar tape offers the maximum level of cushion to keep your hands happy in these challenging conditions. Numerous Pro Tour teams spec the DSP Bar Tape V2 for the rough cobbled roads of the Spring Classics. Thanks to an all-new thickness of 4.6mm, this handlebar tape will allow you to enjoy a better grip and more comfort than ever before.
In addition to being thicker, the 4.6mm tape is also a bit longer at 91" (231cm) per roll, which weighs in at 102g. This delivers that lightweight feel you've been looking for without weighing you down. Featuring a new pattern, an upgraded polymer, and a screw-in bar plug, this tape is perfect for your every adventure. The new pattern is more technical with a new design and multiple layers of depth, adding increased shock absorption so your hands don't go numb. The polymer has new formula enhanced for more durability and comfort, while the new plug provides a clean, tight finish.
Lizard Skins DSP V2 bar tape has been updated to be more durable. With the growing interest in gravel, bikepacking, or just road bikers wanting more comfort, the tape has grown to its fattest yet — at 4.6mm thick. Thanks to this all-new size, you can add the thickness and comfort that you've been looking for to your favorite bike. That, of course, is at the center with the thickness tapering to the edge for a smooth wrap on the handlebars.

Don't like to wear a glove and needed a larger diameter grip surface to minimize hand fatigue. Does not install as easy as conventional wraps but after a couple of tries it works out. Definitely not recommended for anyone who has not installed wrap before.
I already had the 3.2 mm tape on my Cannondale road bike and liked it. After all my riding and doing the Seattle to Portland bike ride I pretty much wore that out. Thought I would try the 4.6 being I usually don't use gloves. The 4.6 is awesome for a no glove person like me.
I like Lizard Skins bar tape and have used it many times. I found this thick version difficult to work with and bulky around the bar ends and hoods. Will be using the thinner versions next time.
This stuff is as thick and comfortable as advertised. I put it on carbon bars on my gravel bike and itï¿½s a whole lot thicker and shock absorbent than your standard bar tape. I assume it will be great for bikepacking, especially if you like a girthy bar and/or ride the really rough stuff. In terms of aesthetics, the color and appearance of the tape are great but Iï¿½m not a pro mechanic and my wrapping skills are average, so because of the width and inability to stretch this lizard skins tape, itï¿½s not the cleanest wrap job. Iï¿½m sure some out there could do it better but it doesnï¿½t bother me (much). Still have to knock off a star though because, at over 4mm thick and unable to be stretched taught, I donï¿½t see this ever being perfect where water and sweat wonï¿½t be able to seep in on a gravel bike. Might be better off double wrapping a thinner tape.
