Tempo Microtex Bondcush Classic Bar Tape

The Tempo Microtex Bondcush Classic Bar Tape from Fi'zi:k is all-new and is catered to those who prefer a little more cushion between their hands and the bar. That makes it an ideal choice for cyclocross racers, gravel riders, or any cyclist doing endurance rides over less than ideal roads. Sitting at a healthy 3mm, it's thick enough to add some additional padding without feeling overly bulky and losing the feel of your bar.

We've seen efforts from Fi'zi:k in the past to add gel comfort in the form of pads that sit on top of the bar which is then wrapped by tape. It worked well in theory, however, the gel turns into quite a mess after a few months, it makes the bar is harder to wrap, and the pads can shift around. In an effort to get a similar result without the headache, the brand now offers Bondcush, a layered, mid-padding polymer foam that aids in the absorption of road noise. It's bonded to that familiar leather-like Microtex outer layer offering grip, durability, and great looks.

  • A cushy bar tape that smooths the ride
  • Synthetic Microtex outer is durable and grippy
  • Foam polymer padding soaks up the road noise
  • 3mm thickness is just right for feel and comfort
  • Classic looks and color options for any theme

Needs more stretch...

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

Feels great once you have it on the bars, but I found that it was hard to install. There is very little stretch, so it was very difficult to make it conform to the curvature of the bars.

Its...bartape...

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Decent enough bartape, does the job and has a nice leathery feel to it. Shame the adhesive backing took off all the glue and a bit of the foam cushioning with it, but I guess if you can wrap right you don't need the tacky stuff anyway...

Matches the Brooks Honey perfectly

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

It's great bar tape. Sticky on the back, so you need to remove the backing to expose the adhesive. It matches my Brooks saddle perfectly, which is the reason to get it. Comes with matching plastic bar ends.
