Lizard Skins DSP Race Bar Tape 3.2mm, providing a comfortable grip and cushioning effect reducing shocks.
The DSP 3.2 Bar tape is Lizard Skins thickest tape, designed to absorb shocks whilst providing comfortable grip on the handlebars. Designed with a distinct pattern and tried and test by Vacansoleil-DCM at the 2012 Paris Roubaix.
- Thickness: 3.2mm
- Length: 82 inches
“In use, the DSP tape is a really interesting bit of kit. The sticky texture give a completely different feel whether you go gloveless or not, and with winter gloves on, the friction pads on the gloves combine with the tape to give almost unparalleled grip. Plus the 3.2mm cushioning means that even if you’re new to riding without gloves, or you forget them when you leave the house, you’ll have no issues with comfort.” - Road Cycling UK

Thought I ordered green, but got gray. I love it. I have a titanium bike and also bought a new ultegra groupset in gray...this bike is sleek. I live in Corpus Christi, TX which is very hot and humid. Lizard skins are the only way to go here, cork tape will not hold up.
Very comfortable and tactile, giving extra cushioning and nice grip - an improvement over cheap bar tape and better than other soft bar tape I've tried. The tape is quite stretchy, which makes it a bit fiddly to fit, as you're not supposed to stretch it when fitting it. Have a practice run first, don't rush, try not to swear too badly... ;-)
I installed the Lizard Skins bar tape on my son's road bike. It was instantly more comfortable and grippy than the cork tape he had originally. He is thrilled and loves to ride the bike even more just because of the new tape!
Great quality for this bar tape, it is extra thick so you don't really need to add any other cushioning (like gel pads) to the handlebar with this product.
Great price and the best handlebar tape out there bar none. Slightly tacky and very comfortable.
I love it, very comfortable for short and long journey. Highly recommended, you won't regret buying it.
Good quality, very "springy" and first impressions - comfortable on the bike.
Cush, grippy bar tape at the best price. Merlin cycles always comes through! Paired it with BBT screw on bar plugs.
2nd set of bar tape after trying out on Cross Bike - really comfortable and grippy. Best of both! Needed a little more cushioning on bars after hand injury flare up when riding distances. Not had same problems here.
Just what I wanted! Thick and durable tape.
This is my first bar tape purchase since 1981. Wow what an improvement in comfort. As for its longevity...we will see. But I expect it will last.
Thick, soft to touch. Premium feel. Very happy with it
Comfy and grippy - what all bar tape should aspire to be.
First class product very comfortable and good looking.
Fast shipping. Great Bar Tape. Have used it two seasons on the old bike. So l had to put this Bar Tape on the new bike right away.
Very nice feel, good cushioning and relatively easy to keep clean. The 3.2 mm stuff is good if you want a after shaped bar but cushioning not really different from regular thickness. Seems durable but have not had it long enough to be certain.
My new favorite tape. Really cushy and feels great even in the wet. I use full finger gloves.
The 3.2mm tape has great cushioning and it feels very grippy. Only complaint would be that the end plugs supplied wouldn't stop in place.
The combination of bar gel from below and this 3.2mm tape gives an almost 35mm sized handlebar with enormous amounts of cushioning. The outcome a very comfy ride. The order arrived within 48hrs of purchase.
Excellent feel, really absorbs the roadbuzz even on the worst terrain.
I was afraid about the feeling and the white color to be hard to keep clean. However when I wrapped and gone for the first ride I have seen that nothing scary. Strongly recommend 3,2 mm thickness for those who want more comfort and more ergonomic hold on the bars. By the way Merlin is the best price/performance online sales site that I have ever seen for many of the road bike products.
Riding on country Victorian roads and gravel I like having a comfortable tape with good grip in rain or shine that looks smart. Problem solved
Very easy to fit and very comfortable too. Highly recommend this product
I moved up to Lizard Skins DSP Race Bar Tape last year after the tape was recommended by a friend who takes part in numerous sportives. At 3.2mm thick the tape reduces and in some cases can eliminate the amount of under tape gel padding you need. Numbness in my hands from 'road buzz' has virtually disappeared. A great product

Better than expected as I was looking for some extra padding on my winter bike h'bars. Easy to wrap and plenty of it so I could overlap and not run out of tape. Time and the weather will tell!
Very comfortable and absorbing.
