New for 2016, Synth. Gecko is a thick, durable, shock absorbing bar tape made with 100% silicone foam.
Since silicone foam sticks to itself nicely, no additional adhesive is required on the underside of the tape to prevent it from slipping once wrapped. It’s easy to wrap, unwrap and even reuse (and you won’t be plagued with the inevitable stickum residue that many tapes leave behind).
Everybody dreads the day when bar tape gets dirty. Fortunately Synth. Gecko cleans up easily with soap and warm water, and the result will leave it looking nearly brand new.
The subtle pavé pattern of the tape provides a surface texture to improve tactile feel and grip. The additional grip is beneficial, particularly on blistering hot days when palms get sweaty, or during the occasional downpour. The natural texture of silicone foam is comparable to brake hoods; it is tacky, squishy but firm, while providing excellent vibration dampening.
Want extra cushion? Wrap it thick and fat. Care for a grippy, low volume wrap? Stretch it and wrap it thin. The choice is yours!
