Comments about Deda Elementi Perforated Handlebar Tape:
I prefer Deda foam tape over cork tape, because it wraps well and it absorbs some of the road vibration. The back of the tape has a strip of adhesive material that holds it to the bar. You're able to wrap it very tightly without much stretching. Even after a year of use, it still looks good. I've had to re-wrap some of my bars several times in the past and with this tape it still looks good on a re-wrap... I can't say that for others. I have not found any bar tape better than Deda.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
