Product Description

Cinelli Cork tape was the standard for ages until Deda came along and built a better mousetrap. We love what Deda does with their Foam handlebar tape because it has just a kiss more cush than cork, without being as cloying chunky as Fizik bar gel. For almost all rides and almost all circumstances, Deda Foam's thickness is perfect. You'll be glad you have it on long rides and on lousy roads. Features a micro-cellular structure on a rubber surface for a nicely tacky grip. Comes with an adhesive backing. Available in numerous colors. The actual weight of the Deda Elementi Padded Foam Handlebar Tape is 53g.

This tape may cost more than some other products but I definitely notice the difference! For years I have had difficulties with pressure on my hands, but this tape really provides great cushioning! Aside from comfort,the rainbow of color options ensures it will look good with any bike. The Olympic Gold is shiny and beautiful!

This was my first time installing bar tape so I knew that it wouldn't go perfectly smoothly. I followed a video on YouTube on how to do it and then practiced several times without removing the paper from the adhesive tape on the back. When it came time to use live ammo, I managed to get both sides taped without incident. But there was very little room for error. I was careful to overlap roughly 1/3 of the tape as I wrapped and still came up slightly short on both bars.

I really wish they'd make the tape a little longer so there is a bit of breathing room. This was most likely exacerbated by my lack of experience, but it still feels like they could've added a few more inches on there.

In my opinion this is the best tape out there. Where it stands apart from other foam tapes is the density--it's on the thick side, but unlike other thick tapes it's not "squishy" or "spongy." This makes it extremely comfortable on the hands while still providing great grip and control. The firmness of the tape definitely helps in tight cornering when you're putting a lot of pressure on the bars or gripping tightly to maintain control (e.g., I use it on my cyclocross bike where grip is important). It doesn't "give" or squirm under your grip, which makes you feel more in control. The density also makes it wear very well. It keeps it's ability to absorb shock and provide grip for a very long time. Wraps easy, stretches very well--I've wrapped at least 20 bars with this stuff and I've yet to tear it from stretching it too tight. My only complaint is the adhesive backing--it's completely unnecessary and makes uninstalling and re-using the tape more difficult than it would be otherwise. You can still re-use the tape after un-wrapping your bars, you just have to unwrap very carefully--the adhesive backing tends to tear the tape if you unwrap too quickly. Small niggle for otherwise great bar tape. And, it's not that much pricier than the generic "cork" tape. Highly recommended.

Color Name: Blue Verified Purchase
Used this tape to wrap some aero bars, and it worked fine, however, the black tape they supply is WORTHLESS. just use electrical tape, and save yourself some time. Also, a lot of the sticky backing peeled off with the wax paper that was protecting it. didn't effect the wrap job, but still, i would rather have something do its job, not just peel away. Since it is foam, it absorbs things quickly, and my blue set is already dirty in less than a weeks worth of riding.

UPDATE: took this tape off, because I found my new favorite tape, so I wanted to put it on my aero bars as well. when I started peeling off this tape it stuck, tore, and left peices stuck to the bars. I had to use Goo Gone orange cleaner to remove the adhesive and pieces of foam stuck to the bars. I also noticed that this is a particularly hard foam, compared to others. I will never order this, or any other foam tape again. by the way, new favorite is the Zipp service course cx tape. I hope they keep making it, it puts others to shame.

Deda Tape is a good cycling bar tape, it has a semi stick backing to help the bar wrapper keep the tape in place when wrapping it around cycling bars. It comes is a wide variety of colors which is the main reason why I ordered from amazon; I was searching for a darker blue color of a bar tape which Deda had. If I need a spare, I will definitely reorder from Deda.Deda Elementi Handlebar Tape Ocean Dark Blue

The color is more like a nasty mustard yellow/ brown. Not gold.
The tape itself is good tape.
