Need a new bar tape design and love the Supcaz product? Check out the bold Star Fade versions. Super Sticky Kush Bar Tape has been a winner for Supacaz and cyclists, of whom consider this tape to be best handlebar tape ever made. Bold claim, but reputation and success back this up. In their words, Supacaz believes Super Sticky Kush has the tackiest and best hand feel, is the most durable high-end tape, and the only cleanable high-end tape. Subjective, for sure, but many riders love it and other companies are now producing similar products. So what goes into this tape that makes it so special? The tape itself is a multi-layer construction with a generous 3mm thickness and a standard 30mm width. The outer layer is an advanced Super Sticky polyurethane material that is highly resistant to UV, sweat, and temperature. The other layer is very tacky, and exceptionally durable. Easy to clean, and can be re-taped over without damage. The central layer is the Comfort Kush Foam. This is a proprietary foam compound that offers maximum cushion from the thinnest effective layer. It's shock absorbing qualities eat up road vibration and impact, reducing fatigue. The bottom layer is made with a Nano Thin Adhesive, which is sticky for tight, no-slip wraps, and adds barely any weight. Supacaz hand stitches it's multi-color versions for maximum strength and durability. The outer PU layer is then embossed with the Supacaz pattern, with the dual effects of increasing grip and delivering a distinct look. Various finish options or highlights are available

Once wrapped, Super Sticky Kush is finished at both ends with a complementary flourish. The finishing tape has the same embossed logo design. This is the first finishing tape that actually conforms to the bar tape, sparing you the choice of electrical tape over goofy hard-edged plastic tape. At the bar end, 100% aluminum, 3mm hex key-fastened Star Plugz securely and safely get the job done. With a durable powder coated finish and laser etched Supacaz logo, the plugs look sweet, and have a clean finish. The Star Fade features about 1/2 of each roll of wrap in a solid color with same color embossed star logo. The second half is black with the star logo in the primary solid shade. The Star Plugz match that color as well.

If you are a traditionalist who rides tightly wrapped Cinelli cork until it wears thin, then perhaps Supacaz is not for you- though perhaps it should be. The best grip and feel delivers the most safety and rider confidence. The cushion saves your hands from the worst of road vibration and impact- which in turn reduces stress on the wrist, elbows, shoulders and neck because you can relax your upper body, and still have maximum bar control. And when the time comes to sprint, climb aggressively, or bear down on the cobbles, you can use the energy you saved, and the superior grip and comfort, to throw down with all you have. Supacaz may deliver great looks, bold colors, and California cool, but what makes the Super Sticky Kush Star Fade Bar Tape is how it delivers confidence to cyclists, even some of the world's best riders. It allows them time and energy to think about what Star Plugz and tape best suit their bike and need to express themselves on a given day. Is it the "best handlebar tape ever" as Supacaz claims? That is for you to decide, but our feeling is that if grip, control, and comfort are your primary requirements for handlebar tape, it just might be.
