PowerTouch Handlebar Tape

Upgrading your bike may not be in the cards this year, but switching out your bar tape is plenty attainable. Ten minutes spent re-taping your handlebars in the garage is a task no cyclist can complain about, and there's something satisfying about getting rid of your sweaty, discolored old tape whose age escapes you. Replacing it with FSA's PowerTouch Handlebar Tape makes for a significant upgrade, with the grippy cork and synthetic blend providing a consistently tacky surface whether you wear gloves or not. The gel-embossed underside holds the tape firmly in-place without the use of adhesives, so when you next indulge in a tape replacement day, you won't be scraping stickum and crumbling cork off your bars.

Not Good

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit:
True to size

While the grip felt good and the tape stayed integral when I put it on the bar tightly... the “finish” came off on the first ride, almost on contact with my gloved hands... the color (I bought red) proved to be just a thin papery veneer that wore right off with the slightest hand friction, revealing a sickly, scaly white grid beneath... it looked like my bars had Biblical leprosy or greyscale from GOT. I sent it back.... It looked really good, right up until I used it, then it looked cheap...

Nice Colors & Grip but less adhesive

Really bright and nice color (pink), good grip on the top also but has, very very light glue on its inside area.

And on sale, the price was right, too. Good stuff. I'll be getting more.

Pretty Cool but not Durable

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

The colour and look are FAN-TAS_TIC! People don´t get tired of prase it! But be aware, before wrapping it, be sure to trim your nails, otherwise it will damage the tape, it brakes very easily while wrapping. Also it does´nt last so long, small bike falls will damage it. It doesn't have glue, so you can re-wrap it if necessary, but it will loose and slip by the time, specially if you like to grab firmilly your handlebar while sprinting! Laughs! The color that I chose is the neon orange. It lost a little vibrance after 10 months, but I find it pretty consistent, since neon colors fades easily. Another plus, it comes with two types of finishing tapes that are amazing! Yea, it is nice and comfortable and the grip is spot on! Bottom line, it doesn´t last long and for the price it doesn´t deserve a 5 star, but the look and feel is niiiiiiice so I will buy it again!

Thanks for the photo. How does this tape perform when wet...ie rain or sweat?

I don´t sweat that Much, but I don´t have any Issues with rain, as I remember. I took rain with this bike just a few times. I have an older bike to ride in the rainny days.

Great Grip, Fantastic Color!

Got this bar tape for my Bro in-law and he absolutely loves it. Great selection of color as well as a great grip and comfort. The cherry on top is it comes with an actual usable finishing tape.

Get a Grip!

Got these as I wanted something with more color than your standard black bar tape. I have always used the Lizard Skin DSP but was never a big fan as you not supposed to stretch it as your are wrapping your bars. These are a great alternative and they actually have finish tape that works.
