StarStarStarStarStar One of the best bar tapes out there

by
Ownership: several months
Tech Knowledge: high

Pros

I love the way Lizard Skin helps to take the road shock out of your hands. It grips in the heat, cold and rain. One of the best Bar Tapes out there. This will be the 2nd time I've used it on my Surly Long Haul Trucker!

Cons

I really can't think of any Cons!

Other Thoughts

Love the dark color of the Lizard Skin tape!

StarStarStarStarStar Terrific Bar Tape

by
Ownership: one week
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

High quality materials, great grip with and without gloves, nice comfortable cushioning, and contains easy to read installation instructions. Good value.

Cons

This is really picky but not crazy about the "Lizard Skin" logo on the small tape piece that wraps the ends of the bars or on the bar ends.

Have used Lizard Skins bar tapes for a few years now and I am never disappointed. Great quality, holds up well to all kinds of weather and as good as new after 8,000 miles.

StarStarStarStarStar Great bar wrap!

by
Ownership: a few months
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

Durable
easy to clean
Takes road vibration away
good grip when wet

Cons

Because of thickness can be difficult to install
expensive

Other Thoughts

Great bar wrap! The thickness of the wrap helps to dampen road vibration, also helped with hand fatigue.

StarStarStarStarStar Best bar tape ever

by
Ownership: more than a year
Tech Knowledge: average

Pros

I tape my own bars, and this is great stuff. I purchase the 3.2mm thick and I can ride without gloves if I wish. It is extremely soft, wraps easily, and the best feature for me is the "tacky" feel. Hands never slip, even when a little wet. If you don't like the "cushy" feel of the 3.2mm thickness, you can buy the thinner version. It still has the tackiness and still wraps easily.

Cons

My only complaint are the bar plugs. The plastic eventually deforms and they fall out. Buy some quality metal expansion style and you will be better off.

StarStarStarStarStar Excellent bar tape

by
Ownership: more than a year
Tech Knowledge: average

Pros

Soft, pliable, strong, good grip. This Lizard Skin 3.2 DSP bar tape has given excellent service. Almost two years after applying the tape it feels like new, and continues to provide a nicely padded yet strong functional feeling to the grip.

During the past two years I have ridden my Cervelo R3 an average of about 80 miles/week during the Spring, Summer and Winter months.

I would strongly recommend it.

Cons

A little pricey, but well worth it.

Soft and it stays in place better than other bar tape that I've used. It's also very durable. I've had this tape on for a complete season and part of the off season with no sign of deterioration.

Cons

None noted.

Other Thoughts

I won't buy another brand of bar tape. My wife and I both use this tape. It works well.
