The Velo Shockproof Bar Tape is a high quality handlebar tape that combines polyurethane upper "synthetic cork" layer with a thin silicone gel bottom layer. This offers great cushioning and a superior grip that will keep your hands comfortable and in place for hours on end. This tape is extremely durable and features an adhesive backing for easy installation.
I have used many bar tapes in the past, including many that cost a lot more than this one. But this is really nearly as good as tapes costing twice as much. Great grip and the padding is just about right. I would buy this again.
I will freely admit that I am PICKY about my bar tape. I do t like the feel of gloves, and I like long rides, so the bar tape is super important. I have spent hundreds of dollars trying various manufacturers and models. This is by far my favorite.
Mine was to replace the original tape after an accident on a gravel bike. It is unbranded, the thickness makes it very comfortable, very easy to install, does not slip. I don't like "chrome" end caps, but that is personal preference and a very easy fix.
