Deda Mistral Handlebar Tape
Deda Mistral handlebar tape.
Deda Mistral perforated handlebar tape in various colours.
JT For the price, they're pretty good and look the part. I'd have liked a bit more flex when wrapping them, though. It feels like a bit like wrapping double-sided tape with the top film still on... The actual sticky surface moves, but the film on the top doesn't have much give before ripping
neil Harrison Good tape easy to clean, good price
Stuart Trying this out for the first time.... Not convinced it’s better that the cork TBH
James I have this bartape on three bikes now and am very happy with the durability and comfort especially for the price. The only downside is the deda label spacing does not allow for uniformity when wrapping the bars. Also the label wears off fairly quickly where bars are gripped. All in all great tape - comfortable, light and durable not to mention great colors.
Mrs Bruce Good comfortable tape, easy to use
Mr Molina Excellent handlebar tape, with a vintage look and shimmering aesthetic. Recommended!. The Merlin cycles service is excellent! and fast.
Mr Heap Feels and looks quite old school with little padding but matches my Deda stem so very happy.Feels like it will last longer than thicker alternatives.
Jack Firm but comfortable. Nice quality tape and a very good price.
AT Surprisingly thick – I'd expected something a bit more tennis-racquet style. Not that stretchy either so a bit more fiddly than usual to fit. Not terrible but next time I'll go for Zipp or Lizardskins.
Jim Thomson Tape looks and feels good on the bike!
Mr Manunin My favourite bar tape grippy robust and shock absorbing. 10/10 would buy again
Mr Gilig great
Sam Great looking tape that is easy to install.
Mr Pak Nice leathery tape, replaced a fizik foam type tape and this feels much better even though its thinner.
Mr kazu My favorite handlebar tape, balance of moderate grip and perforated leather texture. I have not used anything other than this Deda Mistral for over ten years.
Manson I have found that Deda tape is soft and durable
Robert S. Got the red to go with a build I'm working on. It was fairly easy to work with and has a nice texture to it. Offers a good amount of grip and seems like it will work well even if wet. Not as much cushion as some other tapes, but definitely better quality than some of the cheap foam options.
Mr Edwards Very easy to apply and good looking.
Mr Thiry I recommend this handlebar tape to everyone, high end tape and feels very very nice on the hand when riding.
Luis Alejandro Great feel while riding. Doesn't feel slippery or like its going to tear.
Deoti Excelent grip. Good choice.
Berrios Nice tape but too fragile
Dr Saglam It has nice touch and texture.
Mr Romanovskiy my favorite bar tape. Looks good and feels even better.
Mr Rattanasupapornsak Very soft touch. Feels like leather
Johnny Bay Easy to wrap around the handlebar, but too thin for my hands, would have been nice to know the thickness before I purchased
Onur Soft, cheap, useful and it feels quality.
Andi Excellent tape, looks and feels great. Merlin price and shipping can`t be beat.
Mr Sisson Good handlebar tape. Thick enough, and the leather effect looks great on the bike.
Mr Dewhurst Good tape, seems resiliant to marking (white tape)
Mr Jackson Decent quality tape, easy to work and good adhesive.
Mr Rowe Long lasting bartape that doesn't stain
Mr Castilhos Good grip and good quality
Mr Mintram Very comfortable. Looks good too!
Mr Morton Really good quality tape that looks good and is comfortable on the bars. I would recommend this product to anyone.....
Mr Puttick I always use Deda tape so I don't really have anything to compare it with but the mere fact that I always use it should suggest that it is as good as any. Only challenge is to get the printed logos to look good. Without a bit of forethought iit is very east to get one side of the bars with logos and the other side without or inverted.
Mr H Nice tape, bought the red coloured tape and it is a good bright red colour as shown in the photos. Tape is firm with limited padding (which I liked). One star off for silver logos everywhere which look awful.
Mr olson My favorite brand of tape, lasts a long time and never shows its age
Mr olson I used the white for a whole season and it hardly showed any dirt, very comfortable. The only downside is after removing it there was a fair amount of foam stuck to the bars which never happened with the other Deda tapes.
Mr Hebron Tape was of very good quality, I have just put it on the bike and have had a couple of runs, the tape seems to be performing well,it looks good too.
Jose Carlos Senuk Confidence in the service, I just buy the Merlin Cycles I have purchased several items, has a wide variety of products, accessories, tire changes. I will definitely buy more, Congratulations Merlin Cycles.
Grill Not as padded as I would have liked, but good quality for the price.
Mr Dunne Expected a bit more cushioning on this tape.....looks great, but can feel every bump on the road
Mr Danvers Good tape, but it is quite thin so bear that in mind.
Mr Roberts A tough, hard wearing tape that looks great on the bars. Leather look is grippy even in the pouring rain, recommended.
