SpreadersBig and soft, just what was needed. Don`t stick over whole surface so makes wrapping bar tape a little awkward but nothing patience won`t overcome.
Mr BrownVery soft and provides great cushioning under the bar tape. Lengths were good and could be trimmed to fit. Very good product. Only negative is that the pads underside could do with being a lot more adhesive than they are as the edges were rolling up as I was putting on the tape. A bit of electrical tape on the edges kept it moving away from the bars.
Mr ReidThese are sold as a road bike bar enhancement. I went for the thick gel version. The construction build and feel are great but after fitting these and playing about with them I found them more of a funny feel on my road bike with the bar tape on top than just the tape. In summary, I think these would work well if you are hitting rough road/track where they would dampen the vibration. Well constructed and will last. If you are hitting good tarmac road I would stick to the a good get bar tape if vibration is an issue for you.
Mr McILvennyMore comfortable only time will tell if I get on with them as they make the bars a little more bulky which will take some getting used to.
Mr tyeNice soft cushioning, have to watch it doesnt make your bar tape look lumpy. Would use again
Mr Carey SimpsonI set these gel pads under the new Gecko bar tape I bought and took em out for a 100Km ride the next day. Verdict: no vibration at all through the bars!
Steve in DevonThese are great. Eliminates loads of road buzz. They are brilliant if you have the odd rough road to negotiate!
