Disappointing

The rubbery surface is really sticky and nice. I had high hopes.

Unfortunately, as others have noticed, the backing adhesive isn't very good, so the tape tends to slip around on the bars over time. I would like to have wrapped it tighter, but there are "DO NOT STRETCH" warnings all over the packaging.

The padding wears down quickly; it's pretty much flat after a couple months of commuting. Now that it's crushed, it no longer has the same surface area as the rubber, so I have gross-looking creases in the rubber. Re-wrapping the tape has no effect.

Some of the other reviews have claimed that the rubber stays grippy when wet, but that hasn't been my experience at all. In the rain it's no better than any other tape I've used. I mostly ride barehanded, if that helps.

All in all I'm very disappointed with this tape. I wanted to like it, but it just doesn't measure up.

Pros: Very comfortable when new

Cons: Degrades rapidly, price

Would Buy Again: No
Would Recommend: No

my go-to bar tape

i have big hands and race CX. most handlebar diameters aren't large enough for my hand to feel comfy. the 3.2 tape helps pad up the bar and keeps my hands feeling pretty cush throughout a bumpy cx race or just riding along.

Pros: resuable. cush. looks pro.

Cons: a little bit $$$$

Would Buy Again: Yes

I actually use this on a Jones H-bar and its very comfy and durable but it was a pain to install without wrinkles due to the thickness. Probably get the 2.5 next time. Harder to install this and have it look nice than it is to use the 2.5mm over bar pads

Pros: Very cushy

Cons: A bit of a struggle to install without wrinkles

I didn't like it...

I know that many people really like this bar tape; however, I don't like it. It is too rubbery for my taste. I have leather bike gloves and they squeak when I move my hands on my bars. It drives me nuts!

Love it!

I have rewrapped by bars a few times with the thinner DSP tape to change color. Currently am using this thicker tape on my roadie since I wear unpadded gloves. It is superb. There is always grip and it feels secure. I did not like the ordinary Deda foam tape I tried. It felt "floaty", like the handlebar had a force-field around it. I will not use any other tape until they stop making this stuff.

My install has always been pleasant, even with an oddly shaped flat-top Easton bar. The sticky strip keeps its tack even while repositioning the wrap.

Pros: Sticky, durable, easy to clean

One tape, two sides.

One side of this tape is great. The other, not at all.

The side you put your hands on is great. The DSP material provides a good grip even in the rain (as advertised) and the design looks nice.

The side that is supposed to stick on the handlebar is a complete mess, though. You get a very slim line of glue (about a quarter of an inch). To expose it, you have to peel off some paper (which is there so the bar tape doesn't stick to itself when it's rolled up in its box). When I peeled the paper off, the glue stuck to it instead of staying on the bar tape. It even peeled some of the padding off the bar tape. This happened on both rolls I received. So in the end, I was left with non-sticky bar tape and less padding. If the bar tape doesn't stick, it doesn't stay in place, and the handlebar is eventually exposed at pressure points. Not good.

Even if the glue had stuck, what's up with the small quantity? I ended up buying tape from another company, at half the price of the LizardSkins, and the glue strip was nearly 3/4 of an inch wide.

The plugs that come with these rolls are cheap and flimsy plastic things. One broke upon installation, and the other kept falling off. Too much tape, it breaks, not enough it falls. Use something else.

So, all in all, LizardSkins... what use is a great material in a bar tape, if you blow it on the basics?

Instead of electrical tape to finish the taping, LizardSkins actually provides their own tape, with their logo and all. Oddly enough, that tape sticks very well, and it offers a nice finishing touch. Too bad the bar tape sucked...

Pros: Looks nice
The DSP material provides good grip even in the rain
Thick padding makes a good shock absorber
LizardsSkins electrical tape makes a nice finishing touch

Cons: Sticky side doesn't stick. At all.
Cheap, flimsy plugs
Too expensive
Not worth it
