One of your three contact points with the bike, so important to get right.
The Bontrager Gel Tape is a great default, it’s what’s fitted on all the Trek road bikes, and is our go-to workshop replacement. Go for the Double Gel for more padding, Microfibre for a minimalist feel, or Gel Grip option for a more grippy texture.
The Fizik Microtex tapes come in two thicknesses, 2mm Superlight or 3mm Performance. They have a more leathery feel that some people prefer, and also a Tacky option.
The Lizard Skins DSP tape is a staff favourite, with a wonderfully tactile ‘just-right’ stickiness feel to it, and three different thicknesses, the middle thickness 2.5mm being the most popular.
Unconditional Bontrager Guarantee - all Bontrager bar tape come with a 30-day trial period, if you don’t like it, return it for a no-quibble refund.
