Received: Fabric Handlebar Tape
Often overlooked, bar tape can be one of the sweetest finishing touches to any ride
We were handed a sample of new saddle brand Fabric’s handlebar tape at Eurobike. From the off we like the lack of sticky tape backing, and stretch in the material. A bit of silicon gel beneath the outer touchy feely part should act as both security and comfort enhancing. Embossed logo’s and an embossed diamond pattern should do the same in terms of grip. Its available in six colours, plus leather, and given the competitive pricing of their saddles is unlikely to break the bank.
We’ll have confirmed pricing and our first thoughts in a Ridden article in a week or so. Until then, theres more details at the Fabric website.
