    Default Favorite handlebar tape

    I need to replace the tape on my Lighthouse. It has the original Benotto tape that just won't come clean anymore. Wondering what is your favorite tape. Thanks for some input. I wouldn't be opposed to more cushioning since Benotto has none.

    I hated it at first but the Specialized S-wrap tape is nice.

    My hate stemmed from the fact that I had used the fizik stuff which is not so padded... Spec stuff is.

    Anywho. $25 bucks is a little pricy but worth it.

    SRAM super light weight tape better than most long enough no to be an issue with wide bars and cheap never buy a tape that can not be replaced ever 3 months when you install new housings and cables. All bar tapes compresses very rapidly especially so when wet from sweat, there is no tape that can out last three months of daily riding.
