Comfort meets style.

Fizik's high performance Micotex handlebar tape is now available in Performance and Superlight versions. At 3mm thick, this Performance design offers slightly more padding than the original Microtex bar tape, with just a few extra grams. The thinner 2mm version is sold separately.

Microtex offers a stylish perforated look that's breathable and comfortable with excellent grip. This durable tape doesn't fade as easily as others and can be a perfect color match to a Fizik saddle or a head turning accessory for any bike. The soft touch tape has a suede-like look and appearance.

Microtex Performance 3mm Bar Tape includes 2 rolls of tape, bar end plugs and Fizik logo black finishing tape.

I hate wrapping handlebars. This tape makes sure that I only need to do it once. Great durability and even better if you can get the supplemental gel to position below it. Keeping nerve damage in my hands under control is getting more difficult and Fizik products are a great interface enhancement. If you don't currently use this product, please do your self and your body some good! Good stuff nuff said!,

Nice bar tape
rating
by Anonymous
Sherwood, OR

This is the first bar tape that I've purchased for my bike. It was long over-due! This tape is easy to install, looks great, and performs very well-very comfortable and grippy. The only reason for the 4 is that the tape is pretty short. It stops about 1 from where I like my tape to end. Not the end of the world, but it does give me that much less cockpit space to use during hard climbs

Just installed this on a new build and it is really nice material however it is almost impossible to get the bar end plugs in and looking good due to the thickness, used a mallet and still not all good.

3mm Microtex has been my preferred road bike tape. The 3mm tape takes a little bit of the edge off chip seal buzz on the bars. The Microtex in black has a no slip texture that I prefer and is very durable. Costs more but lasts much longer than standard bar tape. A bar tape review is going to be subjective but I believe the performance benefits are here for the price premium.

Use this tape, orange, on a gravel bike. EVEN though it is orange, it is staying clean looking. It was a good choice for comfort and durability. Nothing to dislike.

Padding The tape is comfortable even though the padding is pretty stiff when new. The thicker tape also helps those with larger hands.

Color Hard to get an idea of the color until it's in front of you but the range seems very stylish. My hands and gloves turned metallic blue in the heat when I first started using it and still slightly do after a year/5k miles.

Durability At least a year/5k miles and it still looks and feels good. A fall and slide took a chunk out of an aluminum bar cap but only half a layer of the tape on the drops (quite a few layers off me as well), protecting the bar completely.

Texture As advertised, this is not a tacky tape. It can be pretty slick even when not wet.

There is a reason fizik tape is used at every level of cycling. The tape is firm, yet malleable, goes on easy and doesn't stretch. While the 3mm is not their performance tape, i.e. the Superlight tape, it is an outstanding product as far as comfort and overall riding and training experience goes. A great feel under the hands, love it both without and with gloves. Easy to clean!

Very grippy, by far one of the easiest installations
rating
by Victorbchoi

I have installed this bar tape in my bike, and it's been awesome the past 3 months. When I replaced the bar tape, I was a little skeptical about the feel and installation. I can confirm, that this bar tape isn't hard at all to install. For a novice to install, it has a bit of give to it, allowing you to mess up a few times until you get it right. As for performance, this tape does take some breaking in after it is installed. For me, I took these on a few rides and they were grippy, but still a little stiff. But in about a week, they eventually gave loose, and you can feel it squish a bit and allow you to grip the bars well, as well as providing a reduction in vibration on some of the rougher roads.

High quality but very stiff

Avid cyclist...I put new bar tape on all my bikes after a season or two. Never purchased Fizik tape before but saw a sale and purchased 2. Out of the box the tape looks high quality. Install...oh man, first there are about 5 inches of non logo ends on both ends of tape, no idea but I cut off and left about 1 inch on each end. Installing was strait forward, the ridge in the tape ensured even overlapping but when I got close to the curves around the brake hoods that's where I had trouble. Tape is very very stiff, I had to rewrap sever times to ensure I would not get wrinkles with the tape. After several attempts I still had one small wrinkle on each side of the tape..overall the tape looks, feels, and does its job..padding is quite good.

I purchased this to replace a Fizik tape that was 10 years old and starting to show wear.

The application is standard and simple. The finishing tape seems a little weak in comparison to the bar tape.

The thickness of the tape makes it hard to stuff the end caps. There is a lot of self advertising on this tape that you can mostly cover when wrapping a specific direction. I'm not sure why one edge needs to be white. The tape works well, it just takes a bit of effort to apply it properly and achieve a nice clean look.

It's very nice bar tap. Has just the right amount of padding and stickiness. Relatively cheap. Mine started to show wear (paint peeling off) after 8k miles.
