Fizik Bar Tape MicrotexAny contact point between you and your bike is always going to be a personal choice. If you like your handlebar tape as thin as possible, Fizik's Microtex is a great option. It's lighter and more durable than just about any tape out there and allows for a very solid grip wet or dry. If you use Fizik's Microgel handlebar system, this is the same tape that's included with the kit.
This bar tape is awesome for cross. It is very tough and survived a cross season with many crashes.
