Arundel Cork Bar Tape
While we don't doubt that 20 years from now we'll be riding 6lb bikes with telepathic shifting and hydraulic braking, we're fairly sure we'll still rely on cork handlebar tape. Cork is just thick enough to absorb a bit of road shock; it's just tacky enough so your sweaty hands won't slip when you move from hoods to tops; and by putting a fresh wrap on your bars you make your bike like pretty much new. Can you really improve upon that' We don't think so. Our pals at Arundel -- creators of the world's best bottle cages -- now make bar tape. It comes in a variety of solid colors. In each color you get "Arundel" printed along the tape, with cork flecks subtly visible throughout the tape. And one important detail is that it has an adhesive strip on the back, which makes installing it super-easy. The actual weight of the Arundel Cork Handlebar Tape is 56g.
