Great alternative to Lizard Skins
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
As we all know, Lizard Skins is THE bar tape to use right now. I was so impressed with ESI's mountain grips that I gave their bar tape a try. This stuff is pretty dang awesome. It's 100% silicone so it never gets dirty. It's extra plush as well. Really take the harshness out on broken roads. I would highly recommend.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I normally am religious for Lizard Skin DSP 2.0 bar tape, but needed a quick replacement and bought this because the Chunky mountain bike grips are amazing. The tape wrapped up easily, it is comfortable, and non slip. I noticed that it absorbs a ton of the vibration, but the only down side is that it is a bit on the heavy side, and a bit wider (i like that) but some looking for a tighter narrow wrap won't enjoy this tape.
