A good tip for fitting new tape: put the box on top of a radiator for a few minutes first. This makes it nice and pliable and makes for a neater job! For the best fitting instructions available see our Handlebar Tape Fitting DVD. Step-by-step instructional DVD with clear close-up shots showing exactly how to fit bar tape.

I like the way the tape feels. IT is a good compromise between low cushion and high cushion. Looks good as well. The end plugs are pretty low quality. I use 44 cm handlebars. If you overlap as recommended, there won't be enough tape to cover the handlebar. In the past, I've always used SRAM supercork tape, and there was plenty of tape left over. I tried the Deda because it was rated as not so "cushiony" - and I agree. However, there also isn't enough product in the box to do a complete set of large handlebars.
Sticks to the bar well, stretches without breaking, good hand grip, and isn't expensive. My favorite bar tape.
Wraps well, good cushion, cleans well. Good value.
Well to keep it simple I'll just state that , the Deda handlebar tape wears well, cleans easily and sticks to the bar instead of moving around after a short time of use. The Deda bar tape is thick enough to absorb road buzz and yet, not too thick, it's just right.
I've used DEDA for years and find it works very well for me. It has a bit of cushion to it, but pulled tightly stays firmly on the bars. The surface is soft and easy to grip, even with wet hands/gloves. The tape is not as durable as slicker, harder surfaced tapes are, but I am willing to accept that tradeoff for the cushioning and grip of the DEDA. I get 2-3 thousand miles before changing tape, longer if I go with black, which hides wear a bit better.
This stuff rocks! The price is right and it lasts. Easy to clean up as well.
A must have in your workshop when you frequently change your bar tape. Plenty of colors to choose from.
This handlebar tape is very durable and looks great. Even had a small crash and it didn't rip. It's quite thick and stretches a lot so it's reasonably easy to apply. However it is not grippy and feels very foamy under bare hands.
