Shave some weight, add some style.

Fizik's high performance Micotex handlebar tape is now available in Thick and Superlight versions. At 2mm thick, this Superlight design remains identical to the original Microtex bar tape. The thicker 3mm 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 Superlight 2mm Bar Tape includes 2 rolls of tape, bar end plugs and Fizik logo black finishing tape.

Awesome bar tape

I use this bar tape on all my road-style handlebars. It is easy to install, looks great, and is easy to clean. In my experience, it is also a longer lasting tape than traditional cork tapes. Comes in a variety of colors, including silver and metallic blue, that cork tapes can't offer. The Fizik tape is a little thinner than traditional tape, so if you're looking for extra padding, you might opt to put the Bike Ribbon Gel Pad under the wrap, or, for complete bar coverage, you can double-wrap your bars.

If you are searching for a bar tape that looks good and is long-lasting, this is the one for you.

I wanted a celeste-colored, leather-like tape for an old, steel bianchi and this is perfect. It's pretty easy to keep clean and not hard to wrap (though you need to put some muscle into it due to the lack of stretch), and it seems pretty durable. These aren't issues for me, but I don't find the tape to be particularly breathable and it definitely wouldn't be a great choice if you're hoping for some cushion.

I've been riding for thirty years, and have used Benotto to Cinelli Cork tape. I like this tape better than any other I've tried. Feels like a nice tennis racket grip, and wear-and-tear is very light so I get hours and hours and hours of top use out of it.

I used the regular white tape on my wider road bars. Initially a bit slick in use so needed to wear gloves to keep a good grip, but after a couple of weeks there was enough tackiness in the tape to comfortably use without gloves. I like Fizik and had previously used soft touch tape, but that always stretched and curled up at the edges. After a couple of months on the bars, this version shows no signs of stretching and a quick wipe has removed any grime or marks.

Installed some Logo blackwhite soft touch. A little tricky to wrap as it kept on bunching up on the bends. I have 46 bars and I had to wrap the top of my bars thin to make it stretch long enough. If you like the feel of the road, you will like this tape. It looks great with my matching Arione blackwhite saddle. I have not used Fizik tape for awhile, it's durable and long lasting. Like a previous reviewer mentioned, if you like padded bars, put a layer of gel under the tape. I pulled off some Cenilli cork and the Fizik is quite lightly padded compared to it. Different feel, but nice. The Fizil logo is nice, but not really that visible to anyone else accept you, and I guess thats what counts.

I have a white Cervelo and the white tape looks great (I also like the Fizik logo), it's thin but still has plenty of comfort.

I've been using fi'zik Microtex for at least 10 or 12 years. Even when I'm riding a ton, this stuff doesn't seem to care. It's comfortable, looks great, they don't skimp on how much they provide you with and there's several styles and many colors to ensure comfort and that it will complement your ride.

Highly recommend starting the wrap at the bar ends and finishing on top of the bars. The thickness of the tape will likely feel catchy and annoy you if you wrap it from the top towards the bar ends. I don't use the crap securing tape that Fi'zik supplies for keeping the tape from unrolling at the end of your wrap, it doesn't stick very well and will unravel. I use a turn of Gorilla tape andor black electrical tape to secure the end of the taping near the stem. That's my only criticism of this stuff.

This bar tape feels great! Much more elegant feeling than most traditional cork tapes. This tape is thinner than most cork tape with less padding. I personally like fairly thick tape, so I generally use an inexpensive cork tape, such as Selev cork ribbon, as a base layer and wrap the Fizik tape on top.

Nice looking bar tape, but not enough cushioning for me.

It is also hard to wrap , as it has very little cushioning.

Fizik makes lots of bar tape , so I am sure there is a model that would work for me.

I have noticed that Fizik's quality and aesthetics are top notch.

Okay but I prefer the Fizik Superlight Tacky Touch
rating
by Jason W

This is an okay foam-type bar tape. It's easy to stretch around the bars without tearing and produces good results. It's not remarkable and the logos (ordering mistake on my part) are a little much for me. I recently bought a bike with the Tacky Touch tape and much prefer it. Although not absorbent like the Microtex tape, it provides a better grip, even when my hands are sweaty.

rating
by OldSchool

Pro

Price

Tough (no problems with ripping)

Included bar ends are a nice subdued black

Con

Little giveflexibility that would allow it to conform to compound curves without gaps

Not long enough for my application

The lack of perforations on the ends of the tape is puzzling and does not do anything for looks

Box said that it included two pieces to cover the brake hoods - only one was provided

Included finishing tape is covered with the Fizik name and looked tacky

Other information

I wrap using the traditional figure-8 around the brakes and this likely contributed to the length issue. I did not use the included finishing tape because of the issue mentioned above.

Not enough material to wrap 44cm handlebars. There is basically no padding.

I've used Fizik Bartape in the past with virtually no issue. I recently purchased the black logo'd bartape and it has a suede like feel. Easy to install and no concern on tears when stretching. After only a couple early season rides, hard to say how well it will hold up, but it looks cool and should easily get a full season of 3500 miles out of them. Fyi, the 2mm isn't very cushy if that is a concern.

Not as cheap as some of the wraps on the market but they last a long time and retain the good contact feel on your hands. Pair these with the gel pads under the wrap and you have a long lasting, comfortable wrap!

i went with blue. Matched my old steel frame exactly. the color in the photo is spot on. feels great in your hands. I have bull-horn handle bars (much shorter than drop) so i had plenty of excess tape to wrap the bars with a little more overlap than usual, which makes for great padding.
