About Bar Tape
Bar tape adds the finishing touches to your pride and joy, you can go for colour coded bar tape or even carbon fibre bar tape, but it's not there just to look good, it actually serves an important function by absorbing road vibration and providing a grippy surface for you to hold onto. Cork tapes offer high levels of road vibration absorption, to get even higher levels of comfort you can use gel pads under the tape on points of regular contact if needed.

Magazine reviews for Lizard Skins DSP Bar Tape
Review from Bikeradar
Lizard Skins forego the usual pseudo-cork compounds for their new road handlebar tape, instead opting for a unique 'Dura Soft Polymer' foam.
The closed-cell material plus its 2.5mm thickness make for a distinctly cushy and comfortable feel, and it's also remarkably grippy even when wet, especially in combination with the built-in surface texture.
Roadies who find themselves on rough surfaces will undoubtedly welcome the way the DSP material takes the shock out of their hands - and maintains feeling in their fingers.
At 63g for the complete set, it's no heavier than standard stuff but far lighter than bar tape sets that include separate underlying gel pads. That and the reassuring no-slip surface make DSP an easy choice for cyclo-cross riders.
Installation is a snap as the DSP material is very stretchy and a full-length adhesive backing helps keep things under control. Finishing tape and bar plugs are included, too, and there's a generous range of eight colours available to suit your bike's paint scheme.
The rubbery feel won't suit riders who prefer a more natural sensation, though, and not everyone looking for something grippy wants something so squishy (for those riders we recommend black Fizik bar:tape, Arundel Gecko Grip or Bontrager's paper-thin Grippy Tape). It's also quite expensive at £24.99 a set.
If grippy and squishy is exactly what you're going for, however, and you don't mind the artificial look and feel, Lizard Skins Dura Soft Polymer tape is an easy choice.
Remarkably tacky surface even when wet, cushy feel and easy installation, but artificial look and feel won't suit everyone's taste, and it's expensive
Review from Cycling Plus
This company cut its teeth producing wraparound frame-protecting bands for MTB chainstays, and the ever expanding range includes this wrap for dropped handlebars. While some tapes have a tendency to fold when bind them around tight bends, this stuff stretches very effectively so it's quite easy to get neat and tidy and resists tearing better than most. The texture is similar to the kind of tape you'd cover a tennis racket handle with and lie gel layer is a highly effective shock absorber. The length of tape is generous so it's long enough for 46cm handlebars
Probably the best handlebar tape available
