Arundel’s Rubber Gecko Handlebar Tape is a cushy bar tape made with foam and an outer layer of natural rubber. Rubber Gecko offers a soft tactile grip with a bit of give to it. It wraps slightly fatter than Arundel’s original gecko grip but not by much. The Rubber Gecko tape is perfect for the rainy, cold cobbled classics.

Available in multiple colors.

This product is very grippy and works great on my indoor trainer where lots of sweat is an issue.

Nice tape once installed. Beware though: Installation isn't easy!

Tape is really nice once it is installed. I didn't like the way it handled when I was wrapping. It didn't want to lay flat on the bars. It seemed the only way I could get it to wrap was to overlap by much more than I should have. Ultimately, it ended up fine, but came up short by about 1.5 inches. Also, the glue on the tape is super tacky, so watch out. If it touches the front of your tape, it will likely damage the surface.

At first, I was not sure I was going to like this tape. After a few hundred miles, I do, in fact, like the feel and grip it provides. Easy to install and my impression is that it is going to be functional for a long time. The blue color was bit off from what I was expecting, but that is a normal occurrence for me. Not sure that I would purchase it at full retail price, but again, that is not unusual for me.

Replaced worn out Lizard Skins DSP with this tape. I always liked the Lizard Skins, but it wore too fast and is kind of pricey. I got this as an alternative and, so far, it's great. Feels comfortable and secure on the bars. It'll take awhile to find out how it wears, I guess.

Local bike shop put this on one of my bikes in for service last year. Switched all my road bikes to this. Really like the feel. It does wear a bit after 1000s of miles, but not enough to detract from my overall high rating of this tape.

Lecko my Gecko!
rating
by Overlander

I'd been using the "regular" Arundel Gecko bar tape for a few years, but always had slight problems getting it to lay flat on the curves, and it was prone to getting snagged, resulting in minor tears. So I tried this Rubber Gecko, and I like it much better. It wraps quite well, just about as well as any tape I have used. It provides good cushioning without feeling bulky, I think. It seems more resistant to snags and tears. It provides a good grip, even when wet. So far, it seems like it will last a long time. I expect that I will keep buying it.

Great bar tape.
rating

This is my favorite bar tape. One great asset is that there is plenty of tape to wrap you bar thoroughly .

It is very pliable and therefore wraps tightly to the bar. I also love the comfort. It has the perfect texture to be suitable on sunny days and wet days.

Horrible bar tape
rating
by Charlie
Daily Commuter

2 of 3 customers found this review helpful.

The bar tape is a rubber film with a sticky foam backing. The rubber film comes off the foam backing very easily. If you have to make any adjustments while wrapping your bars, then it will tear. Additionally, it leaves a royal mess on your bars when you take it off. It is by far the worst bar tape I have ever used in 20+ years of cycling. Not worth $0.25.

Great hand feel

I like the nubby surface of the tape. A bonus is the extra length which I used the closely wrap the tape around the top handlebar curve. The material appears to be of good quality. Not sure of the tapes long term durability, have only been using it for 2 months.

My Go To Tape

After many years of trying various tapes (Fizik, Cinelli, Brooks, etc.), this has become my go to on my cross, road and commuter bikes. I love the tacky feel in the cold or wet, muddy CX races with just the right cushioning. Perfect for New England riding

I'm using this bar tape on my gravel race bike. The tape was one of the easiest to apply and it is very grippy! Should come in handy when the going gets rough and/or wet.

Confident grip
rating
by Ron

Getting older and looking for more hand comfort. The tape provides a good grip and is comfortable, but I also put it over Specialized Phat bar gel. My handle bars look swollen, not exactly a combination if you have aero bars, but it works for me. Absorbs the vibration while still providing a confident grip.

Comfortable bar tape
rating
by NB Biker

I picked this tape hoping for a good grip through our sweaty summer months. They were great through the summer with retaining their grip with the sweat running hard in the summer. Seemed to shed water and sweat more than absorbing. They still look like new after a few months of wear. Nicely padded for extra comfort on the rough country roads we often ride on.

This product is the best that I have used. I use it on my road bike and have installed on many others seem to be a hit for every one of them. the softness of feel and durability of this product make it my go to bar tape. It seems to be a popular bar tape all around and some times hard to get in that it's sold out often.

I would not describe it as being 'soft' or 'comfy' even though it is a bit thickish. But nevertheless it is serviceable.
