    I used this tape in a verity of conditions. (rain, snow, sun) It is now my go to bar tape. I've even had friends switch. I sweat more than average and usually have problems with my bars getting slick on long rides. But have not had any issues since I switched. Have around 2K miles on this tape and no issues yet.

    Good, but not worth the hi pricing

    after a couple of ride I can tell that this tape is confortable and non sliperry but considering the hi pricing I found that is not worth paying that much!

        Comments about Lizard Skins DSP 2.5mm Bar Tape:

        I needed wider bars, so I changed my bars on my Felt Z2 bike to Easton EC90 Carbon Aero Road Bar 2014, 46 cm. After reading many reviews on bar tape, I went with Lizard Skin 2.5, black in color. It is not the cheapest in price, but I am glad I purchased it. My hands use to regularly get numb on any ride over 15 miles. I have ridden several rides between 40-60 miles with this tape. Numbness is not 100% eliminated, but reduced greatly--probably about 75% reduced in frequency.

        Back story: I originally purchased a set of Easton EC90 Carbon Aero Road Bar 2014, 44cm bars. They ended up still to small. For these bars, I purchased the Lizard 3.2, white in color. It was too thick for me and the white got dirty way too fast. I only did about 3 rides with this tape before returning the bars for the 46cm ones. I was able to ride without gloves with the 3.2 tape, but I just did not like the feel.

          Comments about Lizard Skins DSP 2.5mm Bar Tape:

          Nicely padded. Good for riders who don't wear gloves. Had the 2.5mm on one bike and the 1.9mm on my other, preferred the 1.9.

          Slippery when wet. Tricky to install because you
          are not supposed to pull on it.

          My girlfriend loves it but I switched brands when the time came.

            Man I love this bar tape. I've tried a few other cork varieties and this one is my favourite. I have it on a commuter/winter/beater that takes seasonal abuse and this tape has held up well.

            The color of the tape is not a true red, its more of a Cranberry red. It does not match anything on my bike and will have to be removed. I have used the yellow tape before and it is a nice bright yellow.

            • It's bar tape

            Comments about Lizard Skins DSP 2.5mm Bar Tape:

            I've read other reviews saying that the tape is slick when it gets wet and now I understand why others have pointed this out. If you were riding outside in the rain, this could be a real issue. On a trainer, you really need to put a towel over the bars to keep it from getting to slick. With all of that said, I really like this stuff. It's very comfortable and has basically eliminated the numbness in my hands on longer rides.
