Forte Grip-Tec 2 Handlebar Tape (Black)
Honestly, I had fairly low expectations for a $20 roll of tape that, first, wasn't cork; second, was not overly cushioned; third, actually maintained its grippiness for the long haul, much less when wet and dirty.

Compared to so much other product designed for road/gravel this was cheeeeeap!

Well, 8 months in and 800 miles of urban assault & gravel later I still love this stuff as much as the day I wrapped it on. It hasn't seemed to wear down much, still has spring when you press down on it, and hasn't moved around a bit.

It is a bit tricky to tuck into the bar ends and plug, like all the rubberized tape I've wrapped, so I just used some primo-looking, anodized Pro bar ends that swadge into the bar.

I'd probably give it 5 stars once in use for awhile, but I just installed it yesterday. First impressions are that it's a great product, at any price, and an even better value. Solid quality and enough thickness for Gravel or Road applications where some extra "give" is desired.
