Fizik's Bar Gel with Tape is a great way to make every ride more fun and comfortable. The Bar Gel is placed on the bars and then the Tape goes over that. The gel adds excellent padding and protection because it uses the same soft Technogel that's used in Fizik saddles. Plus, Fizik's Tape is so nice it's preferred by professional riders and their mechanics. It's made of Microtex, a perforated synthetic-leather-like material that's durable, stretch resistant, breathable and smooth and comfortable to the touch, even when wet.
