“Championed by the likes of Alejandro Valverde and the MTN Qhubeka Lizard Skins bar tape feels incredibly comfy. We have fallen in love with the way Lizard Skins bar tape feels on the bars, so much that we have relished recent mild weather as an opportunity to go sans gloves, such is the pleasant texture of this wrap.” - Cycling Weekly

Improved comfort for hands. Great price from merlin.
The material is very tacky, which works for me though not everyone. The tape is very light, I saved 60g. The packaging warns against stretching it when fitting, relative to my previous cork tape I found it trickier to fit.
Superb stuff, comfortable and high quality. You probably wouldn't want to go any thicker than is though...
Put these on my new Ritchey carbon bars. They seem to have good grip and cushion and are fairly comfortable. Can't yet say anything about durability. I;m happy enough with them so far.
I have this tape in red on another bike and its excellent. It feels great in dry or wet weather with a kind of sticky feel, so no slipping off. The tape is easy to fit and stays in place. Highly recommended.
Pros: great grip, feels great
Cons: not easy to fit as the stick glue strip is only 8mm wide and the undersurface is tapered. This means you need to be really accurate on the install and ensure that the overlap is exact other wise there can be high levels and/or gaps on bar bends.
After fitting lots of tape I found these the more troublesome. Basically there is a 8mm line of high adhesive to attach to your bar in the middle of the tape. I went for the 3.2mm version. The trouble is if following the manual you are not allowed to stretch the tape. With the thin adhesive strip this make fitting a pain. areas of the tape done fit well and can "pop" out when founding corners or round the shifters. If you do manage to fit them properly they are great. very comfy and great grip with a wide range of colours. I would stick to the thinner version if you don't have an issue with vibration.
