Fizik Performance bar tape is made with Microtex like their hugely successful Superlight tape but has foam padding and a more stout 3mm thickness. The foam padding and increased thickness make the Performance bar tape extremely shock absorbing with increased vibration dampening. Whether you have hand issues or just seek a little more comfort, switching to a more padded bar tape can be a big improvement.
Like the Superlight tape, the surface has the ideal amount of tack and resists slippage. It is very long lasting and also easy to clean. Fizik tape is one of the more refined and aesthetically best looking bars tapes making it a perfect complement for a high-end machine.
Fi'zi:k bar tape is made of Microtex material. Microtex is a specific microfiber with very high abrasion and UV resistance. Microtex makes an excellent bar tape because it is durable, strong, breathable and washable. Because it is strong, it does not rip during the installation process like cork sometimes can. It will outlast most other bar tapes.
There are several colors and two textures to choose from. The "Soft Touch" has a softer, suede texture. The regular type features a smoother surface that is easier to clean. Both options are extremely long lasting, but the smooth finish can be expected to last slightly longer than the "soft touch".
