Leather Bar Tape
Brooks has reintroduced a classic product that may force many cyclists, more familiar with modern alternatives, to reassess the material they rely on for grip and comfort Leather bar tape.
This naturally durable and breathable product has been overtaken by a plethora of manmade fibres and materials in recent years but could be on the verge of a comeback among cycling aficionados.
Andrea Meneghelli explains: "Some good things just never change. One of these is certainly leather, a material used since thousands of years for clothing, shoes, etc because of its unique properties.
"Sometimes Innovation for innovations sake sees traditional materials - which are still capable of outperforming newer ones - left behind as fashions change. Today most handlebar tapes for road bikes are made of plastic, synthetic cork or micro-fibres but Brooks believes that by reintroducing leather it could become the next big thing among discerning cyclists."
