One of the secrets to a great bike is great bar tape. Your hands are an important contact point, and it's also one of the things that can make or break a bike build. Nashbar Softgrip handlebar tape is a soft, synthetic tape that's easy on the hands and helps smooth out vibrations and bumps. It's also easy to wrap and comes in a ton of color choices, so you can add a classy finishing touch to that beauty of a build.
Synthetic bar tape is soft and easy on the hands
Wraps easily around most bar shapes and types
Includes extra tape strips to ease you through dreaded brake lever wrap dilemma
Nice looking tape with a very comfortable feel when just installed. Adhesion of the soft tape backing to the exposed surface layer is inadequate, however, causing the thin hand contact ribbon layer to slide relative to the backing, and now requiring replacement of the bar tape with less than 3 months of use.
