To add to their already popular collection of bar tape, fi’zi:k adds a new thickness of tape made from their perforated Microtex that might make all of the Goldilockses out there happy. The new Endurance line of handlebar tape will fill a gap between their current offerings and come in all three of their tactile flavors.
Grab on and head past the break for the details of fi’zi:k’s new wrap…
The new 2.5mm Endurance tape falls in between their 2mm Superlight and 3mm Performance tapes. It is designed for those wanting a robust tape that while still delivering comfort, offers good feedback to the rider. The Endurance tape comes in three tactile flavors of “Classic”, “Soft Touch”, and “Tacky”. All three textures are available in black or white, Classic also comes in red.
The Endurance tape was tested by and developed in conjunction with pro riders from the Telenet-Fidea Cycling Team.
“Throughout the year we ride in so many different environments – with different road surfaces, temperatures, weather conditions and for different durations,” says Tom Meeusen of Telenet-Fidea. “To make sure all our riders get the best blend of comfort and control it’s vital to have a full range of thickness of tape to choose from, with the choice of textures that we expect from fi’zi:k.”
The fi’zi:k Endurance bar tape will retail for $30 in the Classic and Soft Touch, and $35 for the Tacky version.
