The shiny finish of Fizik's Glossy Handlebar Tape reminds us of the first time we saw (and henceforth were in love with) the buffed-to-perfection Guard's Red on our neighbor's 911. It was a far cry from the dingy jalopies we drove. And we like the Glossy Tape for the same reason. Its luster gives a bike the cared-for appearance that it deserves. After all, if you're not riding a high mileage hand-me-down with a battered finish and worn tires, then why should your bike wear dull bar tape?
Fizik Glossy Handlebar Tape is available in Black, Red, and White. We'll let you in on a little secret -- this is a glossy version of their MicroTex handlebar tape. Microtex is a waterproof, synthetic nylon microfiber that's 20% lighter and more durable than leather, and it doesn't tear anywhere near as easily as cork (Cinelli) or foam (Deda) tape. It's durable, washable, and contrary to its slick looking finish, it offers loads of grippiness.
