Nice shiny accent touch. Feels good on the hands but if the tape gets too wet, like while ridding in the PNW rain, it will start to slide on your bars. The underside of the "chrome" has a different texture than other bar tape I've used. Feels tacky to the touch but gets almost slimy feeling when wet. The material is less porous so doesn't dry as well as other more cloth like tapes. Probably not an issue if it stays dry and I may even reinstall it in the summer, but for now I had to replace it because I got tired of re-wrapping the bars, which I absolutely don't love doing.
