5.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable 17 Jun 2014
Colour Name:Blue|Verified Purchase
I find most decent bar tape is quite expensive these days. This stuff seems the best at its price. I don't bother with the gel stuff to go under it, and it provides enough cushion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best you can buy at this price 11 May 2014
Colour Name:White
Superb tape, comfortable and looks great when fitted. Comes with bar end plugs which look a bit cheap and nasty, but at least they stay put (so far at least!)

4.0 out of 5 stars Always white? 4 Feb 2014
By T. Harrington - Published on Amazon.com
Colour Name:White|Verified Purchase
This is the best white bar tape I've ever used. It just keeps staying white! And when it does happen to get dirty, the grime comes off in an instant with a few wipes. I could go on, but it's really that simple.

Only downside (I know!), which was obviously a business decision by Fizik, is that the wrap is slightly too short. I had to re-wrap my bars a few times in order to correctly space the tape so it would reach the top. That was a little frustrating and is something that should not be an issue with a couple more inches of tape. Bad, Fizik! How much money did that save you and how much frustration did you bring your customers with that decision? Anyways, you lose a star for that. No excuses.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fizik vs. Lizard 10 Jun 2013
By C. Tong - Published on Amazon.com
I like to change bar tape every year. this is the cheap mod onto the bike to re-fresh the look every year, it can make me feels like I have a new bike!

So, taking off the one years old Lizard Skins dual color (black and green two tone) 2.5mm tape and rewrap with this 3mm Fizik performance tape in Green color. This is the first time I try Fizik tape, the moment I hold the bar after rewrap. I love it already. This tape is 0.5mm thicker than the Lizard skins dual, but I feel about the same. Lizard also had 3.5mm tape.
I like the Lizard skins they hold well and perform good. However, in a very hot day I feel sticky with bare hand. Maybe that's the unique about the Lizard Skin. With glove I like it, but not my bare hand.
As of the Fizik performance tape, It has more like leather feel, but still feel the rubbery touch. However, I don't have the sticky feel on the first ride and temperature is about 90+. Is less grip than the Lizard but still have very good grip with glove or bare hand.

Color option, personally think Lizard win. because Lizard color is on the bright and gloss side and Fizik is in peel and matte.

Price, Fizik win. $10 cheaper than Lizard

Wrapping is easy and everything you need is included in the box

5.0 out of 5 stars Great looking, firm and durable. 8 Aug 2013
By Some Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Colour Name:Yellow|Verified Purchase
I got this tape in yellow, in the hopes that it would be more comfy than my cheap cork bar tape and not tear as easily. This has delivered on both criteria pretty easily.

The tape itself has a thinnish layer of foam on the underside, which has a sticky strip strip (not adhesive) down the middle to grip the bar while you wrap. This mean you just wrap the tape tight enough so that it doesn't move and you can undo and re-wrap if you miss a spot. There is a line sewn down off center on the tape which helps a lot to wrap it evenly. I probably wrapped mine too tightly, but there is no concern about ripping the tap while wrapping like there is with cork.

The tape is firm (not so much thin, though) and not cushy or gel-like. For me this is an advantage - on my other bike I have "gel" cork tape which is much cushier, but not more comfortable for me. The longest ride I've ridden on this tape is 105 miles, at around 5 hours and I did not feel discomfort in my hands. I normally wear gloves and the grip of the tape is sure in light rain and somewhat sweaty gloves. I haven't used this is in the heavy rain, or with gloveless and very sweaty hands so I can't comment on the grip when very wet.

The tape has a very high quality, almost leather like look. It's very attractive, and I decided to try a lighter color (yellow) since I was hoping it is washable. I've put about 800 miles on the tape - enough for it to start to darken from use. Using a rag with dishsoap I was able to lighten it back up and clean off grease that I got on the drops. This is pretty hard to do with cork/foam-like tape. The pattern is slightly different than the thin Fizik tape that is normally used with the Fizik gel inserts and the material seems more synthetic leather-like than the microfiber-like feel of the thinner Fizik tape.

I really, really like this tape and think it's probably cheaper than most tape in the long run because of the durability.

4.0 out of 5 stars great tape and stays clean 23 April 2014
By ZaT - Published on Amazon.com
Colour Name:White|Verified Purchase
i bought the white tape. i used the lizard on my white colnago, it lasted a week and half and then it looked disgusting. this tape however is great, iv been riding on it for long and it's still clean and very easy to maintain. feels great.
i dropped a star cause if you dont tape it careful you come up short on the handle bar.
fixik should make it longer..

5.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable for Bumpy Roads 23 April 2014
By Hilary M. Stinnett - Published on Amazon.com
Colour Name:Yellow|Verified Purchase
I commute to work on country roads that have seen better days. This thick bar tape dampened the road vibrations - no more numb hands! Like other reviewers, I had some difficulty with the bar-end plugs, but using a paper towel over the end and gently tapping with a regular hammer did the trick. Nice bright (but not fluorescent) yellow with good grippability in rain. Added bonus- the tape comes with a built-in wrap guideline, and I had plenty leftover (on drop handlebars).
