The tape does look good on first look. However after wrapping it on Handlebar a lot of shortcomings started to appear. The gum under the tape is not very sticky. No matter how tight and perfectly you wrap it, it seems to get dispalced and folded in the area where you hold the handlebar. Also the tape hardly offers any cushion from the road bumps on indian roads. One good thing about the tape is the grand appearance it lends to your bike. Overall it is not worth the money. I would definitely not buy it again.
Thank you for posting a review on your BTWIN handlebar tape. Putting a bar tape on a hanger is not an easy thing to do (manage the spacing between each turn and avoid too much overlap). I suggest you to watch this tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SiR46w6Tl-U which explains the good technique. For my part, I propose to visit the neartest Decathlon store and get the new product at the exchange of the previous one.
The bar tape itself was quite thick making it slightly more difficult to wrap round the bar at the brake. Although at the price I would probably opt for a dearer selection.
Easy to fit
good looking tape and easy to apply just as good as some of the more expensive brands
