It's easy to write off bar tape as just being bar tape--that is, it's easy until you spend countless hours gripping it over the course of a given season. The right blend of grip, cushion, and--yes--style matter, and Supacaz's Super Sticky Kush Bar Tape excels at all three, proving that style and substance aren't mutually exclusive. That makes Sagan, who's ridden Sticky Cush to three world championships, the perfect spokesperson for the brand. Sticky Cush is Supacaz's tackiest tape, making it the ideal choice for bar tape purists who appreciate a touch of comfort but only as long as it doesn't muddy bar feel. It resists the elements, both dry and wet, and ensures that a bit of a spring shower doesn't mean your hands will slip off the bars at the slightest bump in the road. When those bumps do happen, the thin-yet-effective Kush cushioning keeps chatter to a minimum. Finally, this tape warrants a note about style. Whether you go classic black or opt for one of Supacaz's bright colorways, the subtle embossed branding and clean aesthetics add classy flair to any cockpit. The end caps are aluminum--no cheap plastic here--and the rubberized finishing tape makes the strongest case we've yet encountered to leave the electrical tape in the drawer.
