    Comfort and Quality

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This bar tape is definitely my favorite. I have used it for a few years now and have been very satisfied with it. I prefer using the 2.5mm tape as it is just the right amount of cushioning for my preference. I would highly recommend this bar tape if you are looking for something new or if you have not yet tried it out!

    Nice feel, didn't last

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I put Lizard Skins on one of my bikes. Loved the feel so much I put it on the other one. Then, the first bike started showing significant wear on the right side, after about 9 months. I typically ride 3x per week, maybe 150 miles a week. Bike was not crashed or leaned on anything. Just worn out from riding. The second set of Lizard Skins also now shows significant wear in the same area. Vary disappointing for such an expensive tape. I won't be replacing with more Lizard Skin.

    Nice feel, didn't last

    Feels Great, Didn't Hold Up

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I wanted to love this tape. I mean, it was 2x as much as the Fizik Microtex I had been using. It was love at first sight and first ride. There was enough pad to feel it, and the grip was much better than the Fizik. However, only about 2k miles in, and they're starting to wear through and the black tape is now white where I hold the bars just below the shifters. For $40, this shouldn't last 1/2 a season, when I was getting 2 years on my old tape. If it were $10 cork that'd be one thing, but for this price, no thanks. I'll unfortunately be going back to my old tape that didn't feel as nice, but lasted longer.

    Don't think about it, BUY THEM!!!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Great feel with this tape. Soft grip, dampens any chatter, cleans super easy, adds a ton of personality with the different color combinations. Stop you search for new tape right here and BUY THEM!

    It's the best

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Favorite bar tape out there for soft feel and tacky grip. I don't wear gloves when I ride, and Lizard Skin is one of the only tapes I've found that still holds it's texture all the same even when under heavy fire from sweat, rain or other road debris. Only complaint is it gets dirty really fast, especially the white. It looks great at first, but it's so tacky that it does pick up debris really quickly. Fairly easy to clean, but it doesn't really bother me to just replace it pretty regularly. Worth it to keep my ride looking good, and hands feeling fresh.

    So comfy

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I run this tape on both of my bikes that have drop bars and don't think I would ever bother with a different tape. It is very comfortable and doesn't get sticky from glue bleeding in the heat like I've had happen on other tape. It wraps pretty smooth and looks nice. Good grip. Get some

    Love it!

      These tape is almost perfect. It is soft, extremely durable, and Looks really awesome. I gave it four star instead of 5 as it does not clean as well as i thought it was going to. Don't get me wrong it cleans well, but my expectations where set high by what people had told me. Other than that nothing to complain about with these.

      new favorite bar tape

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I changed out of traditional cork to this stuff about a month ago. I ride daily. Over the last 30 days, Ive gone from complaining about the price to wondering how I got along without it. Super tacky feel, grips well even in rain. Cushy as heck. Very comfortable ride. Dampens some road vibration at the bars. Overall, a great product.

      Don't Judge Before You Ride It

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      While most know Lizard Skins as a mountain bike brand, this is a legit product for your road or cross bike. I've used this almost exclusively the last couple years for a few basic reasons:
      1/ It's durable. More than most any cork tape. Really
      2/ It's incredibly comfortable. If the 2.5 isn't your jam, there is a cushier size just for you.
      3/ It's easy to keep clean, so you can run the euro white all day long, and your bike will look great.
      In short, I highly recommend you give it a whirl. Your bike will look great, and your hands will love you for it.

      best bar tape

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      when your bar tape starts to fall of or is just time to change it, you need to pick up this bar tape, not only does it look good, its super comfy, has a lot of padding, and is very easy to wrap on your bars.

      Lizard Skin

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I have been a fan for this tape for some time. It is very comfortable; has excellent grip, and cool colors. Now the negative. It is does not have very good durability; developes gaps; and discolors or shows dirt readily. I have also used Cinelli and Arundel, both of which have strengths and weaknesses.

      Opinion has Changed

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have been using this tape for years. At first I loved it. I could get two seasons out of it and 10K miles easy. Excellent feel. The last four or so rolls I've bought have been a little short for my Time bars and the tape has not adhered well, gapping on the tops after only a month of use. I think DSP may be using a different adhesive. Disappointed that I have to look for a new favorite tape.

      DSP Tape

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This stuff kicks just as much ass as everyone else says. Super tacky and comfortable. Depending on how you tape it you can keep it relatively thin or bulk up in certain areas by overlapping it closer. I knew it would be the perfect grip for my girlfriends first road bike to help kill road chatter. Mission accomplished.

      DSP Tape

      Comfy, thick

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      The extra padding is nice for riding without gloves, but interferes with the shifters on my SRAM Red levers. Have to adjust the braking to keep the shift levers from getting stuck on the bar tape. Have not had this problem with thinner bar tape.

      Had plenty of length to do my bars. Like really plenty, discarded about a foot on each side when I finished, and I use continuous multiple wraps around the brake hoods rather than use the short strip that comes with the kit. Finishing tape is nice, sticky to both the tape to finish it off, and to my hands when riding.

      It's sticky, providing a good grip, even with sweaty hands.

      I'll likely use Lizard Skins again, but a thinner tape next time.

      Expensive but worth the price

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I received my first set of DSP tape as a gift and put it on my SSCX bike. I liked it so much I bought some for my geared CX bike and plan on buying it for my road bike when a change is needed. The tape is tacky, but not sticky and has a great amount of padding for CX shenanigans. Having a plethora of color options is awesome as well. I've only had it on for a couple months, so I can't yet comment on the durability. So far so good.

      Expensive but worth the price
