Cinelli Cork tape was the standard for ages until Deda came along and built a better mousetrap. We love what Deda does with their Foam handlebar tape because it has just a kiss more cush than cork, without being as cloying chunky as Fizik bar gel. For almost all rides and almost all circumstances, Deda Foam's thickness is perfect. You'll be glad you have it on long rides and on lousy roads. Features a micro-cellular structure on a rubber surface for a nicely tacky grip. Comes with an adhesive backing. Available in numerous colors.

The actual weight of the Deda Elementi Padded Foam Handlebar Tape is 53g.

Time will tell

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Purchased because the price was right and I was replacing the cables. Have used SRAM, Specialized, Fizik, and Zipp previously as bar tapes vary quite a bit and can be an easily changed decision. Does have a little bit of stretch but not the most comfortable tape I have used. I do not think this has a tacky feel at all and agree with other reviewer (David) that getting this wet is probably not a good idea. It does look good when installed. The Fizik is nice and my favorite to date is the Zipp CX tape but it wore rather fast. This will do the job but not sure that I will order it the next time around.

Cheap and stretchy, but...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I hate installing tape that is hard to get on, like Fizik, and this tape doesn't let you down there. I decided to try the carbon variety and have to say that while it looks nice, it isn't as comfortable as the Lizard Skins I usually run. It's really firm and I think if it were wet the bars would be very slippery. Bar tape can be pretty subjective, so that's why I gave this a 3 star, maybe it will be 5 for you!

Great bar tape

Of all the tape, Deda makes some good stuff. Just enough "stretch" when installing and a great feel once on the bars. Highly recommended.

These rip. The Deda logo weakens them and they tear suddenly. Maybe it was a fluke, but I have a pretty ugly tape job as a result. Otherwise these are wonderful. If not for lack of durability they would be a 5.

Happy Hands

This tape was easy to install, looks good, and feels good on the hands. Good buy.
