It's nice. Feels lovely, lasts longer than lizard skins, but doesn't last longer than standard cork or more basic tapes. If you're OK with the cost, go for it.
Cheers, trying to find a nice brown tape for a titanium bike are there any good ones in cork?
went in to alpkit this morning to check this out, not at all comparable to traditional cotton tapes like velox etc. pretty thick and heavy and felt very slippery
Looking for tape recommendations to replace the original tape on my old Cannondale after I switch handlebars.
It's very thin, shiny, perforated leather. Seems incredibly durable given how old it is. Any ideas? Only thing I can find is this one from Selle Italia
YOu have the velox "perforée"
Very common here in France and very durable as long as you dont "untape" it
Thank you, I will try this!
I’ve been told this isn’t how you do tape grips. If it’s not, then how?
I believe the correct way is however TF you like, debates about unravelling etc. aside
Start on the end of the bar like you would drops and wrap inwards I'd have thought. Then bar plugs to hold ends and leccy tape? Or trimmed down wine bottle corks and twine if you're cool.
I’ve alway done them “pro” ie centre to end and then tucked behind the plug to stop them unraveling. The reason for this is I can never find my electrical tape. Three people have told me I’m wrong. I ridden thousands of miles like this and they have never come loose. I just wondered what the consensus was here.
Also, wine corks and twine that would look cool on this build hmmm but not the orange tape.
How easy does this clean? I’m think a bright colour gif a certain winter bike 🤣
No idea, I don't clean bikes and I only use black 😁
That’s gotta affect their feel
