Just wrapped my bars on my old bike (have a new Emonda SL6) and discovered how really nice this tape is. Has the perfect amount of padding. The color is awesome. It stretches really well...I am used to stretching to have enough to cover the bar (except the final 1.5 to 2) and with this tape, I had about a foot of tape to spare on each side. I also rewrapped an entire side because I wasn't happy with my work - no problem unwrapping and rewrapping. About to order some more for the new bike.
I have used a variety of tapes over the years. The Pro Sport silicon is one of the easiest to install due to the grip on the back side and the supple nature of the tape. It stretches well, but retains good cushion and totally stays in place during the process.
I was used to buying expensive bar tape and I probably still would be but I built a bike that really needed lemon yellow bar tape, the pricey stuff came in off yellow colors if at all so I gave it the well if its junk I will throw it away its not that much money close and tried it.. Turns out this tape is great, EZ to install, nice and wide, perfect thickness, could be a little stickier but now im used to it and its all good, the best part it has lasted longer than any tape I remember, still looks great (like new great), and is crazy easy to clean (towel water soap, dry overnight looks new).. This stuff is a no brainer...
Overall ok. I bought the silver tape thinking it would be a nice match with my grey bike. But once I had it installed it just looked like I wrapped my bars with duct tape. It felt slippery too. Picky, but I replaced it. Tape was good. good length. I'd recommend any color but silver.
Have used a lot of different bar tape over 25 years of riding and racing, but this is probably my favorite. It's thick, durable, and looks great. About all you could ask for. I would give it five stars for value when I can buy it on sale!
I don't usually get excited over handlebar tape, but I really like this tape! It's easy to wrap re-wrap, it's noticeably more comfortable and wear-resistant than several other brands I've used in the past.
This stuff is just plain COOL! The tape is spongy and thick and there is plenty to wrap your bars with. The silicon adhesive is so easy to wrap with and the red and blue colors look so much more vibrant. Come on PRO! How bout some colors in Fluo?
Put this on our tandem. May be too much padding for some, but I prefer more padding on my tandem. Appears like you will be able to remove and re-wrap multiple times without glue coming off or tape tearing. (I've already removed once to adjust brake cable housing).
