These are excellent bar tape. Soft, cuishy, VFM... What more you can ask for.
Though the length is so so.
Good value for money. This tape lasted well over a year on my commuter bike - despite being completely exposed to the elements, and is a big improvement over the 'sponge' grips that came stock on the bike. Quite comfortable too - with a reasonable amount of grip. Two extra pices are also given for going under the brake levers - so there is no need to do a figure-8 there. I have the old style
How your tape performs depends largely on how it is installed - even the best tape will feel bad if shoddily installed. Choose carefully the direction of winding - you should wind such that the tendency of the hand is to tighten the tape while riding.
The product title 'NEW HANDTAPE GEL' is misleading because it does not show up in searches for 'bar tape'; nevertheless it is bar tape for drop bar bikes.
Easy to put on handlebars
looks good and takes the shock out of a bumpy surf
Great tape, nice and stretchy, so easy to wrap. feels really nice on the bar. An absolute bargain for less than a tenner too!! Had to lose 1 star for the bar plugs which are (as with most sets of tape) hopeless. Easily remedied with the screw in plugs also available from Decathlon
