This bar tape is awful: despite the embossed texture the tape feels plasticky and slippery to the point of being hazardous (FWIW I ride without gloves). I like to put my forearms on my bar tops, TT style, on long flat roads and I can’t safely do that because the tape is so slick. Additionally this tape offers very little cushioning.

Pros? It wraps easily and it’s thin (if that’s what you’re looking for).

Didn't actually install this tape so take my review with a grain of salt. Reason why I didn't install the tape is I did not like the texture as soon as I opened the box. Its smooth and slick feeling! I prefer a tacky grip, one that provides solid traction and I did not have confidence in this tapes ability to do that. Felt like my hand would slide right off my drops. returned it and got Supacaz instead.
