Product Description

When you look at the start line of a race that's bound for rough roads, you're sure to see bar upon bar wrapped in cork tape. Why? Because it's tough to beat the vibration absorbing properties of this natural material. With our S-Wrap Cork Handlebar Tape, however, we managed to do one better. It features a dual-density design that pairs cork with EVA foam tape, and the result of this is an incredible reduction in hand fatigue. We didn't stop there, though. We also gave it an elastomer gel backing to heighten the aforementioned, as well as overall comfort. And for easy installation, we kept everything highly stretchable and low in profile.


  • Low-profile cork/EVA foam tape is sleek and comforting over rough roads.
  • Elastomer gel backing provides additional comfort and vibration damping.
  • Easy-stretch tape with feathered edges creates a smoot, low profile wrap.
  • Bar end plugs included.

Occasionally, without notice, manufacturers change product design and/or specifications.

Best Vibration Damping Tape I've purchased

Normally I don't pay a lot for bar tape, but I decided to flash the cash this time with a sportive coming up and took a gamble. I've always suffered from numbness in the hands on long rides, so cant say I was expecting any change after fitting this. How wrong can you be? Just completed a 85 mile sportive and a 73 mile club run in successive weekends and not a hint of vibration. The gel backing gives a moderately bulky feel and seems to work for me. Would definitely consider it for my other bikes.

S-Wrap Cork Bar Tape

I have used many different bar tapes but this is by far the best to fit, it also not only feels good but lasts a long time before needing replacement.

Grips & Bar Tape Guide

What are grips and bar tape?

Grips and bar tape form the padding you rest your hands on when you cycle.

Who needs grips and bar tape?

Grips and bar tape don’t last forever. They’re a bike consumable that you will need to replace when it gets too worn.

What are the choices?

If your bike has flat handlebars, you need grips, if you ride drop bars you need bar tape. Beyond this, there’s a bewildering array of materials, textures and colours to choose from, all promoting different comfort and performance properties.

What should I buy with them?

Grips are only one half of the cycling hand comfort equation. Pamper your palms properly and add a decent pair of cycling gloves as well.

Anything else?

Grips and bar tape aren’t just about comfort – there are so many fantastic colours and designs to choose from, it’s a great way to add a splash of your personality to your bike.
