    Comments about Nashbar Softgrip Handlebar Tape:

    This is really high-quality tape! Stretchy, great texture, padded, with adhesive. It is not as tacky as Lizard Skins, but has a good predictable grip on its molded, fabric-like, texture. i am getting more!

          does not have a nice hand feel. feels only slightly better than using old inner tubes for bar wrap.

              Comments about Nashbar Softgrip Handlebar Tape:

              For the price, this tape cannot be beat anywhere. With or without gloves your hand will not slip off this stuff.
              Downside: it does not last very long. I had to replace it after just a few months. But at this price, it is definitely worth it.

                    I've only had it on the bike for a few weeks, so can't speak to the durability, but it sure seems like it will hold up great. I like the grippyness and it has a rubberized feel to it that should mean it doesn't absorb water or sweat and become slippery.

                    looks good but not durable

                      Comments about Nashbar Softgrip Handlebar Tape:

                      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.
