Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Bar tape isn't the most technical aspect of a bike but there are a couple reasons I'll be buying this product again:
Easy to wrap - The "SRAM" logo makes for a nice reference point when wrapping the tape. It was very easy to tell how much overlap I should use. Also, the side that touches the handlebar doesn't have glue or tape but rather a grip material, so if you need to re-wrap it isn't a problem.
Great feel - This feels about the same as most cork bar tape and there is plenty of elasticity to stretch thin and lots of length to wrap for a padded grip.
Nice Price - This pretty much speaks for itself.
So basically I was looking for some decent bar tape to wrap the bottom of my summer bars. I saw some Deda Elementi at my LBS but figured since I didn't really a ton of it I could go with something a little cheaper. So I ended up finding this SRAM tape, which I was definitely satisfied with. They send enough tape as well as some bar plugs and some black tape to finish your wrap. The plugs seem to work pretty well, I would recommend using a little of your own electrical tape to seal off the job-one tiny piece doesn't quite cut it. Overall, a great product, especially for the price.
I read the reviews and decided to try the tape.
I have used Cinelli Cork, Cinelli synthetic gel cork, Fizik Microtex, Deda and Specialized double padded tape. They all are inferior to this tape.
The Fizik tape was the last used. Very thin, hard to wrap the curves, and overall not impressive.
This tape was easy to apply, simple to wrap the curves, and was long enough to complete the job with excess.
No need to double wrap or be concerned about vibrations. This tape is the cure.
I do use it with the Fizik bar gel, as per the recommendation of another reviewer. This combination is the best.
So, if you seek added comfort and cushioning, get the SRAM tape and the Fizik bar gel.
You will be happy.
