Specialized Roubaix Bar Tape – Black


Specialized benchmark their gear along the horrific cobbles of Paris-Roubaix. As a result something they value highest is the utmost comfort. Need proof? Look no further than their Roubaix Handlebar Tape. For the construction, it features a pairing of a grippy suede finish with vibration-absorbing EVA foam. This means that you'll experience less slip and a significant reduction in hand fatigue. After witnessing so many mechanics putting up double-wrap, Specialized took it step further by adding an elastomer gel backing for even more comfort and support. If this sounds thick and clumsy, though, don't worry. This tape is extra wide, so your wrap job will remain sleek and low profile. They even made it to be highly stretchable with feathered edges to make sure of it.
