Leather Handlebar Tape
Leather bar tape adds that finishing touch to your road bike. But beyond the aesthetics, it is also extremely durable and provides an excellent grip. Available in either Black or Honey color, with end plugs.

Accidentally purchased black handlebar tape rather than honey as the picture did not reflect the selection. That said, the tape itself is great.
The tape seems strong and flexible. I bought it in hopes it will outlast the stretch fabric tapes which wear out within a year; so, I won't know if this works for quite a while. The price was good compared to name brand tape. It installed as usual for tape. Leather tape is harder than others, so I bought $10 of silicon pads to go under the hand areas.
"This was my splurge upgrade when I got my Classic, and five years on it's looking great! A few years on I had just a bit of slippage on the left curve of my drop bars - maybe just some sweat eating at the adhesive - but it hasn't budged since then. Much happier with this tape than even something from Brooks, whose tape is subject to delamination, being spliced from more than one strip of leather. Go with the Wabi leather tape if you want good, clean aesthetics and value for your dollar!"
