StarStarStarStarStar Love this tape

by
Ownership: several months
Tech Knowledge: high

Pros

This is great bar tape. It is easy to install and clean when it gets dirty. Nice thick feel that takes out the buzz from the road. I just replaced my shifters and had to reinstall the tape - had no issues in doing so.

I use the 2.5 on most of my bikes, but also use the 3.2 on a touring bike for extra vibration reduction.

Cons

Costs more - but it is worth it

StarStarStarStarStar Comfortable and durable tape

Pros

The Lizard Skin DSP 2.5 mm bar tape is extremely comfortable and significantly reduced road vibrations. While never leaving your hands sticky, the tape's tackiness also provides added performance in wet conditions. Their durability is also notable. The dual color combination is a nice aesthetic bonus. They also protect your bars well, almost like the way a bike helmet protects your head. during a spill the bar tape exploded off the bars where contact was made with the road; however, my 3T carbon bars remained unscathed and in remarkable condition.

Cons

Not really any I can think of.

Pros

Excellent shock absorption and tactile feel. Dirt comes off fairly easily.

Cons

Can be a bear to get on, if not wrapped correctly edges will pull from under overlapping sections. I wrap from middle of the bar to ends, and getting the end plugs in can also be a challenge.

Pros

Lizard Skin bar tape is by far the best I have ever used. It provides an amazingly good grip, lasts a long time, is easy to install and is just totally awesome! I'll never use anything else.

Cons

None.

Tech Knowledge: somewhat low

Pros

Comfortable
Nice feel
Provide good grip

Cons

A little bit difficult to get on just right but this was my first time so maybe that's expected for a newbie.

Other Thoughts

I would buy these again. I like the feel and grip they offer over my old bar tape.

StarStarStarStarStar Good grip. Good looking. Excellent shock absorbing.

Pros

Good grip. Good looking. Excellent shock absorbing.

Cons

Needs tender loving care. Can abrade easily. Would like to see better end plugs.

Other Thoughts

Lizard Skins is the best tape I have ever used. But the tape is expensive. The grip is good. The give is just right. The only problem I have is that this tape doesn't last. Seems I only get 1 season out of a wrap. It scuffs easily, and like all other grippy tape absorbs a lot of hand dirt and sweat. Will I rewrap every year with Lizard Skins, yes. Will I complain that I have to do it every year, yes.

difficult to keep clean
does not follow bends easily

Other Thoughts

instructions say "do not stretch" but you need to pull hard enough to install tightly or the tape will move
